What are your favorite Firefox add-ons?
Currently I'm loving InvisibleHand, Ghostery, and Amazon Wish List.
>Adblock Plus is a definite must.
>CacheViewer is handy for (easily) snagging things that folks don't want you to download
>Gmail Manager makes life grand when you have separate google accounts - I have 3 personal & 2 work google accounts that I prefer to keep completely separate. this allows me to be notified for any message on any of them & allows 1-click entry to each account.
>MultirowBookmarksToolbar is a HUGE favorite. I tend to keep a bajillion bookmarks (pics only, I delete the text) I cram the Firefox buttons & search bar into 1 line and have 2-3 lines of bookmarks. That being said, I would hate this on a small netbook.
>Statusbar Clock: shows the date & time (in a format of your choice) in the statusbar of Firefox. At work and at home, I tend to spend alot of time within Firefox and often don't use the mouse for much (love shortcut keys) so having the date/time show is great. You'll need net savvy to make it work w/the current version of Firefox though - Google it.
Along with some of the others mentioned, I like
"NoScript" so I decide which java scripts will run on websites.
"Better Privacy" that permits me to control those virtual cookies (or whatever they are called) that are loaded on your HD instead of in the browser cookie folder.
"McAfee SiteAdvisor" to get a little more safety information on links returned in a search.
"Print Edit" - I LOVE this. Lets me format the page before I print it so I only print what I want and not all the extra junk. Real ink saver.
"Xmarks" (but for bookmarks only) to keep my booksmarks in sync on the desktop and laptop.
"Add to Amazon Wish List Button" which I use instead of bookmarks for things that look interesting.
"Craigslist Image Prefetcher" so I can see the images at the size I want without clicking the link.read more collapse
