Barlesque - Firefox Addon

Another useful Firefox addon. This one transforms the Addon bar into a set of buttons, adds a minimize button to it, and allows for auto-hiding after a specified time period. Quite a useful addition to Addon Bar and one that's hard to find just by name or description, among thousands of other addons.

A cool addon that sorts out issues with NTLM authentication and Firefox.
