If you are a fan of Apple's Cover Flow your love this extension. With 5-outs you can flip between the tabs and managing your tabs in 3D. It will certainly add to your 5 star experience in the Firefox tab.

Colorful Tabs - Mix Colors
As the name suggests this extension will color your tab titles in different colors. This may help you distinguish between the tabs and groups as you want. This should not be confused with the new IE 8, the color-coded tabs, but can be very useful extension.

This is a must-install Firefox extension that I would suggest. This Firefox extension lets you open tabs and windows as a thumbnail preview in a single window. Not only that, you can also search for pages and their thumbnails group if you want.

Tabs in Firefox always as title pages title. You may have opened some websites that you do not want anyone to see if some obscure title. Use Tab Renamizer extension and name of the title of the tab to another website of the title, such as Google, Yahoo, etc.

Tab Popup - See tabs thumbnail preview
