Tab Badge is very nice Firefox extension that is pretty lightweight (only 6KB!) in size and has only one function on agenda. And that function is to add nicely superimposed visual badges to the tabs in Firefox. These badges shows you the number of unread messages in Facebook, unread emails in Gmail and so on… There are many use cases for this extension as this extension is more general and should work on many websites by showing badges without problem. Note that the badges are also visible for the tabs that you have pinned in Firefox 4.0.

Actually, a badge is based on the title of the page, so if it is "(8) Twitter / Home", a red badge with the number 8 is displayed inside the tab. You can blacklist the badge from any website by right-clicking on it.

Note that Tab Badge extension only works with Firefox 4.0!
