I can't think of it - it might be longURL, but the one that shows the actual URL of the site in bold and can be set to give other details.

Yeah, NoScript and some of the others that protect your privacy can get a little unwieldy.

What Firefox extensions do you folks recommend to help novice Linux

I install AdBlock+ on every Firefox installation that I use, but most of
the other extensions that I use are a bit overly technical for the
average person.  For example, as much as I rely on NoScript, I wouldn't
even consider training a novice user to use such a thing.

I'm installing AdBlock+, LongURL and WebOfTrust.  I'm considering
CookieSafe and BetterPrivacy, but think they might be a bit overly

Are there any favorites out there that I should be considering?
