I went ahead and wrote a solution for this:
To install, download this file and go to chrome://extensions (I'm not sure how to do it in other browsers). Check the 'developer mode' checkbox, and then just drag the file onto the window. It should install automagically.
It's very much a work in progress (and can't hide questions yet), but it works ...
You're not the first person
If there was one it would probably be posted on StackApps. That being said a quick search under the Windows tag pulls up only about five results, none of which appear to be a full client like you are asking for.
There have been projects in the past such as open-so-frontend, which was last updated Sep 6, 2012 and ...
Hats are now enabled on child metas, see No hats on meta?. Thus to answer your software recommendation question: I recommend Vanilla JS.
The nice thing about Vanilla JS is that it's really great at doing nothing; in fact that's all it does. I've been using it a lot (you'll notice that we – Stack Overflow – are actually listed in the "who's using ...
As we are here to recommend software, and OP explicitly asked for a Firefox extension, let me add to ᔕᖺᘎᕊ's answer:
Using profiles as suggested by ᔕᖺᘎᕊ is a good start – but to always have to go via Firefox's profile manager is not really comfortable. To make switching between profiles easier, you might wish to take a look at the Proflist Firefox extension, ...

Disclaimer: I am the author, however, I've created the script specifically for this question.
Instead of using a separate extension designed for this, just use Firefox's built-in solution of having separate user profiles.
You can find more info on setting this up over here at Firefox's website.
Basically, to set up, open the Run dialog (Win + R) and type firefox.exe -p (p for profile). Everything else should be fairly self-explanatory, but check ...
Using the profile manager like others have suggested, while practical, seems a bit overkill and may be a bit clumsy, as you would have to wait for profiles to switch constantly. (Or you could run multiple browsers simultaneously, but this would get pretty heavy and cumbersome very quickly.)
There's an extension called Priv8, which allows you to run tabs in ...
I'd suggest using cookies-based approach, instead of browser-profile ones.
Because cookie solutions:
are faster and more convenient - switching profiles takes browser restart
need less setup - no need to replicate
more direct solution - profiles deal with cookie collections too, not using profiles unless explicitly needed has less layers of indirection
You need to use StackEdit - it is exactly what you are asking for -
The same editor as SO
Works offline once loaded
Works in browser so cross platform
Can backup to Google Docs, etc.
Syntax Highlighting available.
I've made a userscript to do this - it adds another sort button on the answers tab:
I've tested it on Firefox and Chrome on this question.
It will take the votes and sort them in descending order without taking into account which is the accepted answer (which it seems the 'votes' tab does currently).
To use, install Greasemonkey (on Firefox) or ...
I've made a userscript for this. I've tested it on a few questions shown by Franck's helpful query and it works, so it should work for the rest of the questions :)
To install, please first install Tampermonkey and then the script.

I've made a web-app to do (kind of) what you want.
It works assuming one thing: You check the web-app regularly (ie. once a week/month).
Every time you visit the app, it saves the current date and time (to localStorage). Next time you check, it will look at the date saved last time and check if any sites you've ...
Any RSS feed extension should do the trick, as long as it supports Atom. I personally use Inoreader, which comes with a Chrome extension.
What you need to do is subscribe to your filter(s) using the feed link at the bottom right of the page:
Then you can turn on and configure desktop notifications from Inoreader settings page, under the behavioursection:
As of Firefox 57 AKA Firefox Quantum, installing the Firefox Multi-Account Containers extension (developed by Mozilla) will allow you to use multiple accounts for Stack Exchange and other websites, with a different account per tab or window.
Under the hood, it separates website storage into tab-specific
Containers. Cookies downloaded by one Container ...
I ran into a similar problem myself. I needed a program that allowed me to write Markdown-based email templates with a live preview. I couldn't find anything online, so I wrote my own software to do this.
There's actually a .NET library called MarkdownSharp that is really useful for this. This takes a Markdown-formatted input and produces an HTML-formatted ...
I use Stylebot for things like this. It's awesome in that it lets you either modify the CSS itself (what I use), or use user-friendly buttons and knobs to configure things. It's free in the Chrome Web Store.
Here's the script I use (from the awesome export function):
One possibility is to set up a filter with email notifications on the Stack Exchange "My filters" page that notifies you by email every 15 minutes of all the new questions to have the closed-questions tag.
Then set up a rule in your email client, (most have a way of doing so), that deletes the message if your name is not in the message body and another to ...
For Chrome, extensions like Stylish and Stylist exist for the purpose. This is also possible in Firefox.
It works by applying your own custom CSS when you visit defined page. This way you can make changes to any website.
The Stylish extension also has a public directory for sharing such stylesheets for various websites at userstyles.org.
You can even re-...
Here you go, I made this specially for you.
It posts in to the activity side bar on gitter.
Note that depending on how you are syncing IRC and gitter this may mean it does not show up on IRC.
For the default IRC interface to gitter all action on the activity sidebar is posted as an IRC message.
Since you say you are using a ...
Well, if there is an RSS feed for your profile, that you can use an application like feedreader.com to track it,
Feedreader Online is one of the best Google Reader alternatives allowing you to view all of your feeds any way you want.
Otherwise, what I do is I use a Firefox Add-on called Distill. It basically takes snapshots of a ...
You can use SE API to export questions and answers for specific user, e.g.
or via query at SE Data Explorer, like:
select * from posts where owneruserid=1234;
alternatively you can extract such data from the dump using Torrent client (such as BitTorrent).

As @grgarside mentions, there used to be a userscript to do this, but it no longer works, and the owner has stopped updating it as he no longer has time to maintain it :(
So, I made my own userscript Freehand Circles Drawing Tool. I've made a post at StackApps.
It allows you to view any image on any SE site, and start drawing on top of it. A button is ...
IFTTT (If This Then That) is a website that lets you connect services and websites together. Each StackExchange post has an RSS feed. Use that as an input to your recipe. You'd have to have separate instances for each page you want to follow, but it would work. Your output could be an e-mail.
