    Two additions

    for the "Writes to flash drive excessively" list.

    I've heard both Google Browser Sync and FEBE do this as well. I recommend leaving them disabled except when you specifically want to use them.

    Also, as far as I know, TMP only writes to the drive excessively when session saving/restore and/or undo close tabs are turned on. I use the rest of its features on a flash drive with no trouble.

    Some other

    Some extensions, like Internote, Reminderfox, Scrapbook, have options to save in places other than the profile folder, obviously this can cause issues. Unfortunately, this can mean that some uses are limited. For example, to have Reminderfox access the same ics file in both Firefox and Thunderbird, at least one must be saving to a non-default folder.

    I believe that Minimize to Tray has had its issue with FFP solved.

    Is there a way to tell if an extension allows relative paths? Can one enter them like a DOS command? (ie .\dirname\myfile.fil for a file saved in a sister folder?)

    Thanks in advance.

    Well,

    This list hasn't been updated for a while, so it's pretty much abandoned. Use any and all extensions at your own risk.
