Activate the Firefox Sidebar

The All-in-One sidebar add-on for the Firefox Internet browser is a free application that makes your online surfing experience faster. It shows as a panel on the left or right side of your browser's window, and allows you to see all of your downloads, bookmarks, extensions and history. In addition, you can see current Web page information and look up the source code. The sidebar is fully customizable to suit your needs. All you need to do to activate it is download it and install.
