    Yes, all three of those work. I am currently on FF8 and have all three installed.

    As an additional tip, if you ever have an add-on that is incompatible with the current version of Firefox (which is very common now with the current release schedule), you can disable Firefox's add-on compatibility checker by doing the following:

    - Type "about:config" in the address bar.

    - A warning will pop up. Read it, then proceed.

    - Right click anywhere, then select "New" > "Boolean"

    - Enter "extensions.checkCompatibility ###" without the quotes.

    - This works with every version so far, just replace ### above with your version number. In this case, it would be "8.0"

    - Click OK

    - Select "False"

    - Click OK again

    - Now go to your add-ons menu and enable your incompatible add-ons.

    I'm still running add-ons that stopped updating after FF3.6 with this method. Some will work very well (Linkification) while others will not work (AnyColor).

    First attempt finding updates for the subject concerns and upload-ons because of the fact they could paintings. Now in case you pick to uninstall them techniques->upload-ons and uninstall. in the event that they don't paintings such as you mentioned attempt this. Uninstall FF and reinstall it yet placed it in a diverse itemizing.
