Help solve the mystery of the missing extension.

After reformatting my old reliable xp machine I lost a very useful firefox extension. How can I track it down again?

I've been unable to find the extension on either Google or Firefox's website, mostly because I can't remember what it was called.

Basically, all the extension did was let you draw a rectangle on a page and then every link within that rectangle would open in a new tab.

Firefox normally lets you highlight things and open them in new tabs but this extension was better because it let you draw a rectangle instead of highlighting.

Any ideas what this extension was called?

My first guess was to google for "firefox load multiple links" and the first few hits are all about the same extension:

But apparently, you're supposed to download it from mozdev these days (see the comments on the previous page):
