The Preferences Toolbar allows you to quickly change many common user preferences without having to open a separate dialogue. It's recently been completely rewritten and a new version is now available. Preferences Toolbar 2 allows you to set even more prefs and adds user-agent string spoofing and several other useful features. This latest version is also completely customizable and can be easily toggled with a press of the F8 key. If that's not enough, there's also a button that takes you straight to MozillaZine. Go to the download page to install it now or get more information.
I'd love to use it, but it seemed to break the location bar pretty badly... Happens both with a 1.0.1+ build and 1.1 final on Linux. (Installed under a normal user's home directory, so there shouldn't be any problems with permissions etc.)
The prefbar itself seemed to work fine, but I also need the location bar...
