Output a List of Firefox Extensions

There are extensions that print out your list of Firefox extensions as text. Yeah... um, that's going the wrong direction, imho. If you need that list, you are debugging a problem. No need to introduce another variable. Here's how:
  1. Type about:config into your address bar
  2. (You may get "void warranty" warnings. Proceed.)
  3. In the Filter box, type extensions.enabledItems
  4. Right-click on the result, and Copy.
  5. Paste into a text file.
You now have a comma delimited list of extensions that are enabled.
extensions.enabledItems;firebug@software.joehewitt.com:1.5.4,{3d7eb24f-2740-49df-
8937-200b1cc08f8a}:1.5.13,{d10d0bf8-f5b5-c8b4-a8b2-2b9879e08c5d}:1.2,{3112ca9c-

For Extra Credit, Go into vi and make the list more readable:
vi the_list.txt
:% s/[,]/\r/g
