What FireFox extensions are you using?

I just saw the lonnngg FireFox thread, and decided to make a new post.

FireFox has an insane list of extensions, here are a couple that I recomend:

- Web Developer (for anyone into web designer)
-MiniT (allows dragging of tabs)

Another thing I love about FireFox is the Search Engines. I have Ebay, Packetnews, register.com, php.net and dictionary.com added.

FireFox also has pretty cool skins, I'm currently using Noia 2.0 Extreme.

Show Failed URL (which should be fixed in Firefox)

Blanklast (when you close the last tab, it just blanks the last tab rather than closing the browser)

miniT (scroll wheel on the tabs to switch tabs, and some other stuff)

Add Bookmark Here (if you have used Opera, you will like this one)

undoclosetab (self-explanatory. You can use about:config to increase the number of tabs to a higher value)

Linky (great for TGPs)

Nuke Anything (if there's an annoying bit on the screen, just erase it!)

Make Link (automates the creation of links on a forum posting)

BBCode (makes bolding and other stuff easier)

Tabbrowser Preferences (makes the tabs work MUCH better)

SpellBound (a spellchecker)


That's today; I might have a different list tomorrow.

Flash Click-to-Play. Makes it so you have to click on flash for it to play. Gets rid of all those annoying flash advertisements.

hm here's a question, I used to have an extension that if I press ctrl alt S or ctrl shift S, it would save all the pictures loaded in tabs (it worked well together with linky) anyone know what it was? or if it was linky.. then the save thing doesn't work anymore..

Thats a nice list redlemon !

I gotta get some of those, especially Blanklast, I find it annoying when you close all the tabs.

I do know that the 'download links' capability of Linky is broken; I don't know anything about the key command.

Here's my list:

statusbar clock - I often forget what the date is, so this helps a lot
firesomething - fun to use

This list will probably grow once I look through some of the extensions mentioned here.

I stopped using Firefox simply because I missed the Opera download manager. The one in Firefox sucks, and the Extension (can't remember the name) didn't really improve it much.

Pity really, 'cus I liked FF...

Yeah, it does leave something to be desired. The developers don't consider that to be a core feature of a browser.

There's the extension DownloadWith, which is supposed to link Firefox to the download manager of your choice. I haven't tried it.

If there's anything else about Firefox that annoys you, or you think could be done better, just ask. As you see, just about everything can be tweaked.

I just added Extension Manager Tweak to my list, which significantly reduces the vertical space required by the Extension Manager.

You should really consider Linky, which can open all the image links in a current page into separate image tabs.

For additional thoughts, see:
Pornzilla: Free tools for surfing porn with Mozilla Firefox.

Try in the thread:
[Request] Additions to the new Extension Manager. - MozillaZine Forums
It's on the second page, in a link by Gorgias. Oh, and the server doesn't give the right MIMEtype, so you have to save it to your harddrive, then drag it into an open Extension Manager window to install.

Hmm... This has been very helpful. I have been adding to my extension list.

I had a question though, micah67, I tried finding TabX in the firefox extension page but couldn't find it. Do you have a link for that? Sounds useful.

I would add my support behind gmail notifier (notifies you when you have new gmail) and Stumbleupon (random links from the internet with a community supporting it).

I just switched all the way to Firefox last month and I think I just installed 10-12 extensions from these lists or website. Thanks all, redlemon in particular.

Most nice is the Noia skin you mentioned silver26.

Great stuff here.

yep that's basically what it does. you can choose which categories of sites you'd like to stumble to, and you can rate them thumbs up/thumbs down, and post comment about it as well as see other comments.

you can also submit sites by rating them, although most sites have already been submitted.

Yeah, I tried it out, but I couldnt remove the toolbar when I didnt want it there.

Also, instead of getting extensions through Tools | Extensions | Get extensions, go to the default bookmarked page http://texturizer.net/firefox/extensions/ - There are tons in there, including the TabX.

Ahhh! Thanks guys! That page does seem much more comprehensive.

I now have another extension to throw my support behind. TabX makes closing the tabs much more intuitive than normally.

After I installed the "Single Window" I can only open one instance of FireFox... is this normal ?

When I open a second window, I can only goto the mozilla site

I had a problem with two tabs opening up when I clicked on a link in outlook. Seems there's a bug that can be fixed with a reg edit. After installing that, I removed "single window" and have "tabbrowser preferences" doing the work of opening tabs instead of windows.
