Firefox users who get accustomed to this wonderful extension rarely go back to the clunky default Firefox add-on window. From one clickable and customizable sidebar, you can access your history, bookmarks, downloads, plug-ins, and Web-development tools, as well as an endless amount of content via other extensions.
The latest version of this slick, comprehensive application kicks the teeth out of the Opera browser's sidebar. By making all this extra content available via the same sidebar window, it takes one click on the sidebar's menu to switch among them, minimizing the clutter multiple Firefox extensions can unfortunately create. By default, the sidebar appears as a narrow panel of icons on the left of the screen, but even that can be set to automatically collapse into a thin tab that expands when moused over. Complete, well-designed, and enormously helpful, All-In-One Sidebar ranks among the most useful extensions we've seen.
All-in-One Sidebar is a sidebar control, inspired by Opera's. It lets you quickly switch between sidebars, view dialog windows such as downloads, extensions, and more in the sidebar, or view source code or Web sites in the sidebar. It includes a slide-out button and a toolbar, all of which can be extensively customized. All-In-One Sidebar provides also enhancements for many built-in and extension features and some extra features.

Version: All-In-One Sidebar 0.7.6
I hesitated to try this FF add-on at first because I was afraid it would be annoying and take up too much room on my screens. Every article I read called it a must-have so I tried it and loved it so much I also downloaded it for my laptop as well. It is incredibly handy and unobtrusive at the same time.
