Calling Firefox Extensions Developers

A common task I always find myself doing in Firefox is searching through my boatloads of bookmarks (1100+) for something I remember the look of, but not the name or URL of. I tend to remember things visually, so this is a common problem I run into.

I’ve looked around for a Firefox extension that would do the following, but haven’t found anything. Does anyone know of a bookmark extension that would provide the following functionality?

  • Take a screenshot of a web page when it is bookmarked. (This could be optional somehow).
  • Show the screenshot when hovering over bookmarks in the Bookmarks menu.
  • Retroactively take screenshots of web sites already in your Bookmarks.
  • Be compatible with Foxmarks.

Yeah, so that’s probably asking quite a lot…but hey! This would be a killer extension if it did half of what I listed.

Any takers?
