MakeUseOf lists six Firefox extensions that can save you time, usually by automating or simplifying common tasks. For example:

Hyperwords - All in the Right Click! This is undoubtedly one of the best Firefox extensions available and my favourite too. It adds a huge number of options to the mouse right-click, thereby saving you a lot of time.

For example: You want to look up the meaning of a word, translate it to a different language, check it in Wikipedia, find the Whois or Google links info about a page — you get all that in the right click. You don’t need to open a separate tab and go to another web page.

The author also mentions TinyURL Creator, one of my personal favorites. (It turns long URLs into short ones, a task that normally requires copying, pasting, and a visit to the TinyURL site.) Not mentioned: AutoCopy, my all-time favorite. It automatically copies selected text to the clipboard.
