Firefox Mapping Extensions in a Single .XPI Package

Lots and lots of fantastic mapping extensions for the Firefox browser. Which ones, you ask? Well, the 16 extensions listed below.

There are also a couple of extensions that allow users to back up all the extensions installed in their browser and package them into one .xpi extension file. The extensions are Firefox Extension Backup Extension and its partner Compact Library Extension Organizer.

So, I used FEBE and CLEO to backup and package all of the extensions in the following list into one convenient .xpi extension file: FFmapping.xpi. Install this file and you will have just about every Firefox mapping extension that I am aware of...Well, those that are compatible with Firefox 2.0 anyways. Now, the server might not be configured properly for direct extension installations, so you might need to download the extension first (right-click/save as), and then File/Open and browse to the file. This will get it installed.

Why use Firefox over IE? Well, here is one reason.
