Generic

While these extensions include no microformat-specific tools, the can be of use to microformat publishers (or advanced users).

Glossary of Terms

Gez Lemon's Glossary of Terms displays values from ABBR (and ACRONYM) elements, by listing them at the foot of the page. This extension does not work with Firefox 3, as it does not provide secure updates.

Web Developer

The Web Developer extension has several features which greatly aid microformat publishers, not least the ability to display class, ID, object and abbr values in-line.

XqUSEme

Performs W3C-standard XQuery in Firefox. XQuery at its simplest is XPath, but allows more powerful reshaping of XML (cycling through, sorting, joining sources, etc.)--essentially SQL for XML (though also with some scripting power built in as well). XqUSEme uses Firefox's own parsing (and a few tricks) to clean up poorly-formed HTML in addition to XML.

The newest version supports Greasemonkey-like application of XQueries to specific sites, enabling potential sharing and reuse.

See also an example of using XQuery.

XSL Results

XSL Results allows one to apply XSLT stylesheets to a currently loaded webpage (which can be edited) or to a loaded file. Firefox's own parsing (and a few tricks) to clean up poorly-formed HTML in addition to XML.
