Is there a Firefox extension for switching between the same page on different domains?

At the company where I work, we have two separate development servers for testing edits to the website before uploading them to the real site.
When I look at the same page in all three environments in a web browser, the URLs might look like this:
Comparing one page in the various environments is a huge part of my job, so I type the domains into the URL boxes hundreds of times per day.
A few days ago, it hit me that someone, somewhere must have made a firefox extension for switching between different environments. Ideally, it would let you browse to an alternative version of the same page, or instantly open multiple versions in tabs.
This isn't that uncommon of a need, is it? Other places where I've worked have had similar setups. It would save only a few seconds each time I used it, but I would use it a lot.
I've searched on Google and in the Firefox extensions page, and can't seem to find what I'm looking for. If anyone has any ideas of where I could find something like this, it would be much appreciated.
