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.

#37 F8 for show/hide?!?!

I have to say that the F8 for show/hide is one of the best parts of this toolbar. I don't like to keep toolbars because they minimize the browsing space too much for my taste (which is why I love the Little Mozilla theme). So I've been stuck with keeping it as a thin sliver and maximizing it as necessary then minimizing. Then I find that F8 does this which is far easier than trying to click that sliver (and shorter than View --> Show/Hide --> Perferences toolbar. My question is, isn't F8 used for anything else. It seems like all or most of the keyboard shortcuts are used for something.
