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.
If you get problems in Linux, you'll have to play with write access for the Mozilla folder, so every user that needs the Toolbar has write access. Then everyone has to install it for himself. (At least that's more or less what I had to do to get it working.)
Bloody complicated! But I got it to work in the end, and it is a very useful too.
