Firefox Addons

  1. Jan 14, 2010 #1
    Anyone have some useful or nifty Firefox addons?

    I'll add mine here: (made using the infolister Firefox addon)

    * Adblock Plus 1.1.3
    * ChatZilla 0.9.86
    * Delicious Bookmarks 2.1.072
    * DownloadHelper 4.6.5
    * Fasterfox Lite 3.8.2Lite
    * Fission 1.0.9 - loading bar now in the address bar
    * Flagfox 3.3.20 - shows country of website
    * Foxdie for Firefox 3.1.9.4 - nice configurable theme
    * Greasefire 1.0.4
    * Greasemonkey 0.8.20091209.4
    * IdentFavIcon 0.3 - generates favicons for websites without one
    * IDM CC 6.7
    * IE Tab 1.5.20090525
    * InfoLister 0.10.1
    * Java Console 6.0.17
    * Java Quick Starter 1.0
    * Microsoft .NET Framework Assistant 1.1
    * Multiple Tab Handler 0.5.2009110501 - mostly for closing multipe tabs at once
    * NoScript 1.9.9.35
    * Open In RegEdit 0.1.2.4
    * Smart Bookmarks Bar 1.4.3 - hides the bookmarks bar names and to show only icons
    * Sothink SWF Catcher 1.3.2
    * Wolfram Alpha Google 1.0 - search WA and Google at the same time

    Greasemonkey is especially useful when combined with Greasefire as the scripts that can be found via Greasefire which lists all userscripts for the website you are on.

    I LOVE MouseGestures. Why should I have to go ALL the way up the toolbar to go back when I can just flick the mouse left?

    I find http://getfirebug.com/" [Broken] helpful when I need to examine complex Javascript issues.
