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 just downloaded the updated version of the preferences toolbar and most of the weirdness has gone away. I did have one sort-of lockup (it wasn't an infinite loop but the location bar history dropdown wouldn't drop down - the button would depress but never activate or pop back up). However after restarting the browser that's gone away; I'm not sure if it was an issue with the browser or with the toolbar but I've never seen it before.

Definitely a great improvement -- kudos on a cool addition to Moz.
