URL Fixer is a Firefox and SeaMonkey extension that corrects typos in URLs that you enter in the address bar. For example, if you type google.con, it will correct it to google.com (asking first, if you enable confirmation).
This version will correct common misspellings of .com, .net, .org, .edu, .gov, .mil, and all other mainstream TLDs, as well as the protocol (http:, https:). By right-clicking on the address bar, you can set it to auto-correct your errors, or you can have it ask you before making any corrections.
I am aware that there are similar extensions out there, mainly URLSpell and Firefix. As far as I can tell, URLSpell is completely non-functional, and Firefix only alerts you of possible corrections after a page fails to load, using an extra HTTP request to retrieve its corrections suggestions. URL Fixer's corrections are immediate and will save you time if you make a common typing error.
