Often when I go to Mozilla Update I have a vague idea of the title of an
extension I want ("link-something") or just want to browse everything whose name
starts with some word ("link") to look for new stuff.

As it is now, if the listing has many pages (see URL for an example), I have to
do some mental math and/or guess the right page number to click on to give me
extensions whose names start with the letter L. On some other sites with
multi-page lists like this, I've seen a set of links for each letter of the
alphabet, with each link either giving you either only those entries starting
with that letter or at least sending you to the first numbered page that has
entries of that letter. I think having this on update.mozilla.org would make
looking for extensions and themes much easier.

Adding this feature would clutter the Update UI. (which is in the process of
being simplified). I realized in the absense of a search feature this is
desirable, though a search has already been requested and will be completed
soon, and it should provide the same functionality in a less-clutterful manner.
