Missing permissions inspector for Firefox - Snapshot of all the permissions used by each installed extension.

Add-ons are powerful tools which can modify the browser using various features allowed by browser. While installing an add-on there is a permission prompt which tells what all features will be accessed by the add-on. Post that we have no way to know what an installed add-on is accessing. Permission inspector bridges this gap and shows what all an add-on can do to the browser.
