Hi all

What extensions/add-ons do you use with firefox?

Any recommendations?

  1. Misc
  2. Firefox

stumbleupon, forcastfox, liveclick and smiley xtra:thumbsup:

fasterfox, mouse gestures, foxclocks and tabmix plus

I use Adblock, and the import the filterset.g adblocking filter. (just google Filterset.g, should be first result)

IE Tab gives you the option of viewing a page with the IE engine within a Firefox tab. Saves you opening an Internet Explorer window, and getting that dirty feeling...:p

BugMeNot, allows you to log into websites/forums without having to sign up to an account (providing someone has setup an account for Firefox users to take advantage of)

I do not use Fasterfox, instead i follow this guide;

to tweak FireFox's speed just do thisMake a user.js file in your profile … to tweak FireFox's speed just do thisMake a user.js file in your profile folder and add these lines, then watch FF flyuser_pref("browser.cache.memory.capacity", 16000);user_pref("browser.cache.disk_cache_ssl", true);user_pref("browser.xul.error_pages.enabled", true);user_pref("content.interrupt.parsing", true);user_pref("content.max.tokenizing.time", 3000000);user_pref("content.maxtextrun", 8191);user_pref("content.notify.backoffcount", 5);user_pref("content.notify.interval", 250000);user_pref("content.notify.ontimer", true);user_pref("content.switch.threshold", 250000);user_pref("network.http.max-connections", 32);user_pref("network.http.max-connections-per-server", 8);user_pref("network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy", 8);user_pref("network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server", 4);user_pref("nglayout.initialpaint.delay", 250);user_pref("plugin.expose_full_path", true);user_pref("signed.applets.codebase_principal_suppo rt", true);To make a user.js file, open notepad, copy the above into it, then when you go to save select "save file As All Types" and save the file as user.js. Off you go, faster firefox with no extension.

Wow what are all these extensions?? WHat do they do?

The only thing I have is the macOS theme which is pretty nice

In addition to a couple already mentioned: linky(highlight and open multiple links at once), noscript (disables javascript), freedownloadmanager plugin, febe(extension backup...not sure i have ever used it actually!), flashgot (download extension), minimize to tray (closes ff windows to system tray icons)

interesting to see others.

I love stumbleupon, it's like a "random page" button for the net!
