Are you a Fireworks Extension developer who is looking for work? I know of some opportunities, so please get in touch.
You can learn more about developing Fireworks Extensions in the Fireworks Help and on the Fireworks Developers Center.
Another good resource comes from Grant Hinkson, who has provided a sample chapter of his new book on the topic.
And even if you’re not a developer, you can find lots of useful extensions to use in Fireworks on the Adobe Exchange.
Here is a (far from complete) list of links to other Fireworks Extension Developers:

    I’m not exactly looking for work (though some form of collaboration might be nice : ) but you may be interested in taking a look at my latest bundle of scripts, Orange Commands:
    They are used daily on a production environment, where they save us heaps of time on repetitive tasks.
    After using them for a while, a Fireworks installation without Orange Commands just feels wrong, so if you were to include them on upcoming Fireworks releases, that would be *great* : )

    Where are the priorities of the Fireworks team? Shouldn’t the core application work properly before you begin extending functionality.
    I’d say about 5-10% of the time when I click something in Fireworks CS4, NOTHING happens. Or when I click on an object (and Fireworks actually recognizes the click), it takes 1-2 seconds for the properties panel to adjust, so I often end up changing an attribute on the wrong object. Oh look, all my pages disappeared except for one. *clicks on states, then back to pages*…wait, there they are. Is it asking too much to let me render fonts the way my system or browser does? I mean, it’s a web design tool, right? Now I’m making a small circle shape…uh oh..Fireworks drew a square with rounded corners. I guess I’ll go make a circle in Photoshop and save it as a png and open it with FW, that’ll be efficient.
    Point is, FW could be a great application, if you’d quit messing around with novelty extensions and just make the application WORK.
