Preferences Toolbar 2

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.

Nice new setup...I installed it on Moz 1.1 final and it worked perfectly once I restarted Mozilla.

I definitely like the addition of the UA bar to the prefbar. Also, due to the large number of options available, its good that they add a configuration category under the Preferences window.

Here is the list of options available to the new prefbar 2: Back, Forward, Reload, Stop, Home :), Fonts, Colors, Images, JavaScript, Java, Popups, Proxies, Proxy-Menulist, Cookies, Pipelining, Disk-Cache, Mem-Cache, XUL-Cache, Debug-XUL, Clear-Mem-Cache, Clear-Disk-Chahe, Clear-Cache, Clear-History, Clear-Location-Bar, User-Agent-List, Prefbar-Help, Whats-New, and a few links. I look forward to prefbar 3! Good work guys.
