What are your Firefox extensions





jayandsilo
First of all, if you don't already have firefox, get it now.
http://www.getfirefox.com

Give the name of your extension and what it is, then give a link to it.

Adblock v 0.5 - Great for blocking annoying ads https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/10/
Don't worry admins I normally use IE for the forum even though it's crap

Adblock Filterset.G Updater - A good addition that helps alot
https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1136/

All in one Siderbar - Awesome for organising everything from extensions to history - https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1027/

Customize Google - This extension removes the adds from google that show up on the left, and also adds a list of other search engines across the top to show your search on including Yahoo, Ask, AllTheWeb, Teoma, MSN, Lycos, Technorati, Feedster, Wikipedia, Bloglines, Altavista. I have never any trouble with it - https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/743/

Download Statusbar - Adds a bar down the bottom that organises your downloads, definitely give it a go, that annoying download pop-up doesnt come up - https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/26/

Inform Enter - Unlike those form enter extensions that make you fill out fields and it tries to do it when a form comes up, with this there is a white box next to every form box, and when you click it is a list of what you put as the forms - https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/673/

ieTab - I use this regularaly when a site only displays properly in ie, it opens an ie tab in firefox, but it uses the ie rendering engine - https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1419/

SearchPluginHacks - And of course I have this one, which allows you to write click an engine in the integrated search bar and delete it - https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions/moreinfo.php?id=1563

UPDATED
I now have 2 pretty awesome gmail extensions:

Gmail Notifier - Since people don't you googletalk, it's good for telling me when I get new emails. It is just a little thing in the corner, and automatically logs in when I open firefox, and I configured to check for new mail every 1 minute - https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/173/

Gspace - you can use your gmail space (more than 2 gigs) and upload your files, not unlike ftp - https://addons.mozilla.org/addon.php?id=1593

Definitely get Filter.G Updater then, you'll notice a huge difference.

How come you use google toolbar, why not just use the search bar on the left?

A quick reminder to Adblock users - it is against forum rules to use adblock on the Frihost forums. All you need to do is right-click on the Adblock icon and hit "Disable" when you're on the Frihost forums.

Filterset.G blocks Frihost's ads so if you use it, you must disable adblock on these forums.

You have been warned Twisted Evil
photon
my extensions :

1. no script
2. flashgot
3. del.icio.us
4. colorzilla
5. web developer
Sebaci
my extensions:

DOM Inspector
Talback
Flashblock (not used now)
Gmail manager
selim06
i really like
*Adblock
*SessionSaver
*RSS struction..
cavey
Adblock
Remove unwanted ads. Of course; disabled on frihost

Quick Note
Have up to four "note-tabs" on the sidebar. If you close the browser, its there when you open it again. Easy and available, without having to manually saving the files, and remember where you put them.

NoScript
Do not run Java Scripts on webpages unless I white list the site (Like Frihost)

BBCode
Makes it easyer to make BBCode on forums.

Web Developer
This is a wonderful tool for web developers that wants to check their sites, or find out why the webpage doesn't show correctly. You can edit css and html on other sites and see the changes as you type. Menus for validating and checking your site to see if it's user friendly etc (there are similar extensions for Safari, IE and Opera)

Link Toolbar
If the webpage has rel links for next, previous, etc, you can navigate via this toolbar.

Sage
rss/atom reader for Firefox. It doesn't store anything, only format the feed with a css-file of your choice.

Translate
Translate a webpage or sentence. I found it very useful when I google for some information, and only find the answers on f.ex a french site.

Tab Mix Plus
Gives you many cool and useful tab-features. My Firefox is lost without it :)

Few funny and also useful extensions still not mentioned:

It shows a small icon showing if the page is valid and when viewing source it marks wrong elements.

FireFTP https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/684/
FTP client opened in a tab.

Show IP https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/590/
It shows IP address of a page and offers link to few whois services.

Live PageRank https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2007/
Shows a probable PageRank of a page.

Allow Right-Click (couldn't find address)
Disables scripts that block right click of a mouse. (I actually don't know dose it work, but maybe that is a good sign)

I use many extensions but the most important in my opinion are:
-all in one gestures
-gmail notifier
And of course my favourite extension is all in one gestures, it's super.
niranvv
Gestures is a nice extension!!

But why do you need that Gmail Notifier for Firefox!
It will notify about new mails, only if there is any firefox opened window!
Otherwise, it will not notify!
So try to go for Google's GMail Notifier!
Its a tray Icon and displays a small sliding window on
bottom right corner if a new mail arrives
and will show the subject and a little of mail contents!
Try that one!
Details at: http://mail.google.com/mail/help/notifier/

Quote:
The Gmail Notifier is an application that alerts you when you have new Gmail messages. It displays an icon in your system tray to let you know if you have unread Gmail messages, and shows you their subjects, senders and snippets, all without your having to open a web browser.

and once I wanted a crack, so I went to crackspider.net, and it was blocked, so chose "Open Link via httProxy", and again it loaded for ages, and then said "Problem loading Page"

So I dont get what it is used for

I regularly use my emails and there is this extension "eWebmail Colour and Graphics" extension to enable html effects in ur mails and it works with Yahoo!, Hotmail, Gmail and MyWay Mail. This enables me to use my yahoo signature when I mail from firefox either in windows or from Linux.

You can find it at: http://patsis.brownhost.com/extxpi.html#ewebmail

Just chk it out its cool
webbers
Its really gr8 i use firefox, had given ie a run for its money. Well i use:

Session Saver: Its a gr8 extention for me particularly, it just saves everything, mi history, mi sessions, tabs etc.

IE Tab: Another usefull extention, well there are some sites which are only intended for IE, thats why being a web designer gotto use this ext.

Tabbrowser Preferences: well it gives the tab browsing a new level of experience.

Xcelerate
1) Download Status Bar (Useful for showing progress at the bottom of the screen.)
2) Download Manager Tweak
3) Web Developer (I use this the most; it has a whole bunch of features helpful in designing a web site, such as screen resizing, show only table cells, etc.)
4) Mouse gestures
5) Google Pagerank Status

I used to use the new Google Toolbar extension, but Firefox started acting quirky and I didn't trust the thing so I deleted it. Confused
golles
I just switched to firefox since yesterday and I have the following extensions:
-Google Toolbar for Firefox
-Fasterfox
-IE Tab

I'm still looking for other usefull extensions
sprinqles
Mine are:
1)IE View
2) Dictionary Search
3) SMS Send - I unsinstalled already, it was useless for me because you still need to pay a certain amount to send text messages.
4) IE Tab
freeme
Adblock, adblock filterset, noscript, flashgot, dta, perfomancing.
angelussum
FlashGot
IE Tab
Adblock

...are the ones I have
tuncay
The GoogleBar, I guess, is the defacto extension everybody loves and uses.

Other than that, I like to use IE Tab extension, which lets you open links in a tab, where the parsing is performed by IE, hence some sites that are not W3C compliant but well viewed by IE can be viewed.

I also use FlashGot, which makes my Free Download Manager completely compliant with Firefox.

Finally I use FasterFox, which makes some tweaks for loading web pages faster.

is there an extension that makes just as the history a 'menu' on the left with the bookmarks?
like favourites in internet explorer?

paurna
thx for all those extensions.i installed those which i didnt have already
ehunter
What are your Firefox extensions?

Cool Have a look at my long list:

Web Annoyances

Adblock: A definite must have. Annoyance blocker, bandwidth saver. Recommend keep update its blacklist/whitelist with Filter set G.

Flashblock filter Flash elements at their source address for bandwidth conservation but easily display them if you like.

ImgLikeOpera only load images when you want or you can define filter policy for each site with dont load/load all/load cached only/load from originating website only.

Bug Me Not bypass the login of web sites that require compulsory registration and/or the collection of personal/demographic information

Download

Download Statusbar: View and manage downloads from a tidy statusbar - what I really like is its virus scanning function after completing download. For downloading large size file, I recommend use download manager.

FlashGot - Best Firefox Download Manager Integration. Support a lot of download managers.



Tab browsing/navigation

Tab Mix Plus: "Duplicating tabs, controlling tab focus, tab clicking options, undo closed tabs and windows, plus much more. It also includes a full-featured session manager with crash recovery".

Web Search Pro Search the web using a toolbar or through the context menu. Use keyboard only to search from a huge list of search engines. * keyconfig might be required to check pre-defined shotcut keys that could collide with search engine keyboard shortcut.

super drag and go Drag a link, text,image and throw it anywehere on your webpage to open it on a new tab. A feature I love very much from MyIE.

IETab: embeds Internet Explorer in a Mozilla/Firefox tab for opening IE's specific web pages. Now we can runWindows Update directly from Mozilla/Firefox.


Browser Enhanced Functions

All-In-One Sidebar quickly switch between sidebars, view dialog windows such as downloads, bookmarks, extensions, and more in the Opera-like sidebar. Extra URL-Tools Button (screenshot) gives you a lot of useful funtions such as go up/down site's hierarchy, download embedded files, Google cache, Wayback and WhoIs.

Keyconfig re-define keyboard shortcuts for Firefox.

Enhanced History Manager group visited sites and enhance search function [title/location] with [contains/not contain/starts with/ends with/is/isn't]
screenshot

Enhanced Bookmark Search search [name/location/desc/key] with [contains/not contain/starts with/ends with/is/not]

Bookmark Tags Organize bookmarks with categories.

News Reading

Feedview shows newsfeeds/blogs directly in firefox with a more stylish way.

platypus lets you modify a Web page from your browser in the way "What You See Is What You Get"

ScrapBook 'Most Useful Upgraded Extension' winner of Extend Firefox Contest, which helps you manage the collection of web pages, images, notes, snippets ...


Security
Netcraft Anti-Phishing Toolbar Traps suspicious URLs, clearly displays sites' hosting location and other important information to help you to evaluate fraudulent urls.

SwitchProxy lets you use a proxy from the list or surf the web anonymously by using a list of proxies that it randomly switches at defined intervals.


By the way, Could someone recommend me an extension for managing bookmarks, Enhanced Bookmark Search is good but I need more feature to to deal over hundred links.

Thank you
kecha
I use

FasterFox
GoogleToolBar
ADBlock
GmailManeger
WebDeveloper

hope you can forgive me Razz Razz
golles
normaly I won't double post but I have a question,,,

I have downloaded the All-In-One Sidebar and I'm verry happy with it Smile

I added the e-mail button on it, and when I click it there comes a little menu with something like this:

read e-mail (0 new)
new message...
(my pc is in dutch soI translated Razz )

when I click new message... it will bring me to a gmail new message page like it should be but when I click read e-mail (0 new) then it will start Micrososft Outlook, now I removed it from my pc with add remove software.

is there someway to fix read e-mail (0 new) so it goes to my gmail inbox?

I have the gmail notifier running in the system tray but I hate it when things aren't working for the full 100% Razz Razz Razz

thanks in advance
jayandsilo
when I click 0 new it goes to my gmail inbox, so I don't know what's up with it

As far as I know, the only difference between Adblock and Adblock plus is the whitelist, wich is included in the Adblock Plus... The development of Adblock is stopped, but Adblock Plus continues on being updated.

Not too big on extensions. I think Firefox is fine just the way it is, although the extensions may make some tasks a lot easier to manage.
bewolff
I think Firefox is a great browser, much better than IE on it owns. The new IE has tabbed browsing which is gold, of course.

But the extensions make Firefox unbeatable...how can IE catch them?


I use
Tab Mix Plus this rocks, allows me to move stuff around, combine search bars, preferences for opening links in tabs, if i hover over a tab, the browser swithes automatically to that tab allowing me to save valuable clicking energy--feels rather spcae agey
Faster Fox faster is better, does some preloading and all
Foxforecast and Foxforecast Enhanced--gives me weather on bottom of window. hover over the little green ball and get a an instant satellite view of the clouds. Weather comes from Acuweather which has my little hick towns weather.
Gmail Manager--gives you a notifier with a drop down for multiple gmail accounts, multple preferences
Gmail Skins--adds nice color background to GMAIL interface
FoxLingo--tool bar that allows you to translate a website into multiple languages from multiple languages. Tool bar is god awful looking, but you can rip it apart with the Tab Mis deal, and leave just a few of the little flags on another toolbar and it works fine.
Gladder--if you are teaching south of Mongolia check it out.
Google Search Preview--gives a little picture of the web page that as appeared in the search engine.
BEST FOR LAST COOL IRIS and COOL IRIS BOOKMARKS--gives a popup window of a page without following the link. You can even brows a bit with in the popup window.
Navigator
Most important extension if you are a web developer is firebug
rockpan
no script,
adblock plus,
tab mix plus,
firegesture,
stylish,
downthemall,
foxproxy,
greasemonkey,
that are all very useful.

Give the name of your extension and what it is, then give a link to it.

Adblock v 0.5 - Great for blocking annoying ads https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/10/
Don't worry admins I normally use IE for the forum even though it's crap

Adblock Filterset.G Updater - A good addition that helps alot
https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1136/

All in one Siderbar - Awesome for organising everything from extensions to history - https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1027/

Customize Google - This extension removes the adds from google that show up on the left, and also adds a list of other search engines across the top to show your search on including Yahoo, Ask, AllTheWeb, Teoma, MSN, Lycos, Technorati, Feedster, Wikipedia, Bloglines, Altavista. I have never any trouble with it - https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/743/

Download Statusbar - Adds a bar down the bottom that organises your downloads, definitely give it a go, that annoying download pop-up doesnt come up - https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/26/

Inform Enter - Unlike those form enter extensions that make you fill out fields and it tries to do it when a form comes up, with this there is a white box next to every form box, and when you click it is a list of what you put as the forms - https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/673/

ieTab - I use this regularaly when a site only displays properly in ie, it opens an ie tab in firefox, but it uses the ie rendering engine - https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1419/

SearchPluginHacks - And of course I have this one, which allows you to write click an engine in the integrated search bar and delete it - https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions/moreinfo.php?id=1563

UPDATED
I now have 2 pretty awesome gmail extensions:

Gmail Notifier - Since people don't you googletalk, it's good for telling me when I get new emails. It is just a little thing in the corner, and automatically logs in when I open firefox, and I configured to check for new mail every 1 minute - https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/173/

Gspace - you can use your gmail space (more than 2 gigs) and upload your files, not unlike ftp - https://addons.mozilla.org/addon.php?id=1593


                                                 
Ad block is my favorite. I need it badly                                
                                                    
And Feed sidebar and Tab mix plus foxy proxy and so on ...

I've stopped using Firefox recently in favour of Google Chrome. Mainly because Firefox is still so slow at starting, and still very memory hungry. The extension I do use when I am using Firefox are:

* Speed Dial
* Web Developer Toolbar
* McAFee Site Advisor
* NoScript
silverdown
I don't really use extensions anymore since Firefox is constantly updating and half the time there not available for the newest version(s) i gave up on extensions.

I just added SpringPad from SpringPadIt.COM
ExMachina
I like to keep things simple, so I only add extensions that I will use or somehow enhance my functionality on the web. As such, my list is very short. Razz

Download Statusbar: http://downloadstatusbar.mozdev.org/
All downloads are recorded in a status bar at the bottom of the page instead of in a bulky pop-up window.

Flag Fox: http://flagfox.net/
Adds a flag to the address bar that indicates the server location of the current website.

Hide Favicons: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/hide-favicons/
Disables the display of favicons in the bookmarks toolbar (looks much cleaner and is easier to navigate).

SmoothWheel: http://smoothwheel.mozdev.org/
Makes scrolling a smooth motion.

Foxdie (Graphite): http://www.foxdie.us/
My current skin for Firefox's interface. Very clean, easy to navigate and aesthetically pleasing.
