Windows 7: Firefox Add-ons

25 Mar 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) SP1
 
 
Firefox Add-ons

Adblock
After you've installed Adblock, just right-click an offensive ad and choose Adblock from the menu. Then you can block that particular ad or all ads from that domain.


Image Zoom 0.1.7 ..
adds a handy zoom selection to your right-click menu when you right-click on an image. You can choose from a wide range of preset zoom sizes or you can choose to create your own customized size. It makes viewing images a lot more comfortable and convenient when you need to see an image in greater detail. You can also opt to zoom out of an image.

FoxyTunes1.0
Listening to tunes on a computer is something most of us do these days in one form or another. FoxyTunes simplifies your listening experience by building audio controls directly into the bottom of your browser. You can Play, Pause, skip tracks, choose your player, show/hide the player, and do all the usual stuff. If screen space is at a premium on your desktop
or if you just hate switching back and forth between your browser and audio player, then FoxyTunes is worth checking out.

easyGestures
easyGestures provides a handy pie chart that you can access to do common Firefox commands such as Back, Forward, Close Tab, Toggle Bookmarks, Search, Home, etc. You can drag the easyGestures pie chart around to any comfortable spot in your browser.


Gmail Notifier
Gmail Notifier installs a small menu that pops up when you have new messages in your Gmail inbox. You can customize Gmail Notifier by choosing how often it checks for new email and you can choose to have it open your mail in the current tab, a new tab, or in a new window.

Image-Show-Hide 0.1.4.4
Image-Show-Hide lets you toggle images on or off. Once you've installed this extension, you'll need to enable "auto-reload" when turning images on or off. This will force a page reload when you decide to show or hide images. You'll also need to customize your toolbar to get the Image-Show-Hide icon to appear on it (just drag and drop it via the usual toolbar controls after you install the extension).

Web Developer .8
Web Developer extension. It adds a menu and toolbar that lets you manage images, cookies, CSS, display size, and other things. If you enjoy tweaking web pages or otherwise digging under the hood then you'll love the Web Developer extension.

fireFTP
fireFTP is a robust FTP extension that you activate via the Tools menu in Firefox. You can easily drag and drop files from your local directories to the server You can choose to operate in Binary Mode, ASCII Mode or Automatic Mode. The fireFTP interface is clean and easy to use. If you do a lot of FTPing, you'll find fireFTP a very helpful application.


WebmailCompose 0.5.7
WebmailCompose is a very simple extension that lets you access your web mail with one click. You can opt to compose a new message or read your web mail. It's a handy, little extension for anybody using web based email, particularly when you want to write a new message but don't have your webmail window already loaded up.

Windows 7 Ultimate x86 build 7600 (XP, 98SE, 95, 3.11, DOS 7.10 on VM) + Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Lucid Lynx
 
 

Cool list tw33k. Repped.

FireBug
The most popular web development tool for Firefox
Firebug integrates with Firefox to put a wealth of development tools at your fingertips while you browse. You can edit, debug, and monitor CSS, HTML, and JavaScript live in any web page...

  • Inspect HTML and modify style and layout in real-time
  • Use the most advanced JavaScript debugger available for any browser
  • Accurately analyze network usage and performance
  • Extend Firebug and add features to make Firebug even more powerful
  • Get the information you need to get it done with Firebug.
FireShot
FireShot is a Firefox extension that creates screenshots of web pages (entirely or just visible part).

Unlike other extensions, this plugin provides a set of editing and annotation tools, which let users quickly modify web captures and insert text annotations and graphical annotations. Such functionality will be especially useful for web designers, testers and content reviewers.

The captures can be:

- uploaded to FREE public screenshot hosting
- saved to disk (PNG, GIF, JPEG, BMP)
- printed
- copied to clipboard
- e-mailed
- sent to configurable external editor for further processing.

DownThemAll!
The first and only download manager/accelerator built inside Firefox!

Download Statusbar
View and manage downloads from a tidy statusbar - without the download window getting in the way of your web browsing.

Image Toolbar
Single-click access to common actions for images (e.g. saving, copying, printing). This extension is intended to provide a replacement for the equivalent toolbar in Internet Explorer.

Greasemonkey is probably the most important addon you can have. Grab it and head to Userscripts.org: Power-ups for your browser to download scripts for it.

I would add NoScript to this list. It is an excellent security tool.

A very good list by the way.

I use Firebug also. It helps in simply diagnosing problems.

IMHO, FireBug is the BEST debugging tool for Firefox

Why don't we add the list of addons that we think are the best to this thread ?

Nice list and I second the excellent NoScript and AdBlock Plus; together make browsing the web idiot-proof -- almost Lol. My other two add-ons are the excellent DownloadHelper (awesome!) and RefreshEvery.
