Add-ons for FireFox

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
What are some of the add-ons you guys have for FF that improve the overall experience?
post #2 of 6
I use -
Adblock Plus - No Ads! Even on Youtube.
Beef TACO - Allows you to opt out of targeted advertising cookies, good if you are security conscious.
Download Statusbar - Way more convinient than the default download manager.
Flashblock - Stops annoying auto-playing flash videos/ads, and can improve security/performance.
Ghostery - Great privacy add-on, blocks tracking and 3rd party cookies, has a big list of known web-bugs.
Resurrect Pages - Helps thwart 404's by checking in Google cache, Web Archive, etc.
Session Manager - Everyone needs this add-on, in fact better session management needs to be built into FF IMO.
Speed DNS - Speeds up DNS resolution similar to Google Chrome.

I also use a custom userchrome.css file to make a number of GUI/usability tweaks. I can post it up if you like, it includes better transparency, unified back/forward button and urlbar, some menu items hidden. It's worth looking into (you can use stylish addon if you prefer to over manually editing userchrome.css, but thats just adding more bulk IMO). Stratiform is also another awesome GUI customising add-on.

Hmm, the Speed DNS and Flashblock aren't support by the nightly builds. :/ Thanks, I downloaded addblock, noscript, a theme, and the status bar. Going to try that taco.

It's okay. Thanks though.
