Firefox Extensions

Recommended Posts

Well, in total I got 33 extensions, not all of them are active of course.

I'm going to list the important ones:

 

Alexa Sparky

If you want to see the current rank (and trend) of the website you're visiting. Currently piriform ranks #38724 and steady.

 

All in One Gesture

Customize mouse gestures, rocker navigations, scroll wheel, and page scrolling.

 

Answers

Alt-Click any word for definition or quick info.

 

DownloadHelper

One of the most important for me. Download video, stream of any kind, images, from many sites. Very useful, and easy to use.

 

Flat Bookmark Editing

This one is not that important, but I'm going to list this anyway.

Edit bookmark in bookmark organizer without opening properties window. Should be the default interface.

 

FoxLingo

The ultimate web translator. Usually I don't activate this.

 

Scarpbook

Good at saving web pages.

 

Session Manager

Save and restore state of all windows. Very useful when firefox crash, it could restore all windows.

 

Work Offline

This one I use for a long time. It will add an online/offline icon on the status bar. You can click on it to change your online/offline status. I just like the icon okay.

 

I don't use FEBE, I use MozBackup

Just stumbled across a nice little extension for any regular YouTube visitors:

 

Better YouTube

 

As the info on the addon's page is non-existent here is the explanations of the functions given within the extension:

 

Add "Download video" link

Adds a link to downoad any YouTube video on page (uses YouTubeLoader.com)

 

Alternate video player (FlowPlayer)

Replace YouTube's player with FlowPlayer which prevents video from autoplaying and buffers the video automatically without having to press play first.

 

Hide comments and "More from..." videos

Removes comments and related videos with links to toggle back on.

 

Show full video description

Automatically displays the full video information without having to click the "More" link.

 

Theatre view (large video and clean page)

Enlarges video full screen and clears away other page elements.

I think 2-3 add-ons are enough, too much add-ons will slow FF down and consume more resource.

1) Noscript

2) Adblock Plus

Isn't Answers.com a kind of malware? Maybe I'm confusing it with Ask.com? :blink:

WOT:Web of Trust

The greatest thing since sliced bread, OH I mean um, my favorite add-on that helps you stay safe online, by the help of its users, through a voting-like system. You rate websites from very unsafe to very safe in four categories, and earn trust, based on the number of users who agree with you, to ensure accuracy. In addition, blacklists, and whitelists, such as websites certified by Trust-E, or websites in Phishtank, change the reputation. AND, on top of that, algorithms are enforced, that are used to detect people abusing the system. If you are looking for me, I'm wehaveitall on the forums :D

 

Stumbleupon

It slows your browser to a crawl, but still it's pretty cool :D It lets you stumble upon a page liked by another user, so you can always find cool new stuff.

 

Quick page zoom

The name says it all.

 

Download Statusbar

An add-on that makes downloads more efficient, by showing them in a nifty bar at the bottom, allowing you to move your cursor over it and find all the details you need to know about it, instead of having an annoying download window come up.

 

Some of these are FIrefox only

hi there

 

i use different add-ons but the two i would like to point out are:

 

Better Privacy 1.22 "SuperCookieSafeguard". it keeps an eye on flash cookies (.sol) - so called super cookies - and eliminates them. to me another add-on against this tracking and information-getting/keeping techniques on the net today. link: https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/6623

 

Track Me Not (TMN). it works on search engines to prevent their profile-making which can be used and sold by them. it simply "torpedoes" them with a certain amount of keywords per min/h which it takes from rss-feeds and so hides your real interests and search terms behind tens and more of others. link: https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/3173

I've used Download Statusbar for years, it always sent downloaded items to my My Documents folder. I reformatted, long story short, same configurations, but now Download Statusbar saves in a Documents And Settings subfolder. And I notice in its options it doesn't give me the option to save items to a folder of my choice. Is this the norm for this add-on now? <_<

On my computer it saves on a custom location...In FF's Options, under General tab, you can modify the default download location...And Download Statusbar saves here..
