  1. Adblock Plus.
  2. Element Hiding Helper for Adblock Plus
  3. Webmail Ad Blocker
  4. Back/Forward History Tweaks
  5. DownThemAll
  6. Fat-Free Fox
  7. GreaseMonkey
  8. MEGA
  9. New Tab Tools
  10. Private Tabs
  11. Better URL Bar
  12. GrabmyBooks
  13. F.B. Purity
Those are main addon I installed. Under GreaseMonkey though, Anti-Adblock Killer | Reek and blockblockadblock.

Not to mention a whole bunch of modifications in about:config. Recently those that will make Youtube loads the whole video in HD instead of buffering every few seconds.
I find it hard to replicate the experiences in Chrome. You might comment on the Adblock Plus, but I have been using it since it comes out. Other blocking software that install at OS level is not allowed at my working place, so I just use ABP.

There's a couple more on different systems that I have.

Please don't say that.

No matter how Firefox develops and it has too despite us not agreeing one bit, we need them simply because look what's available, it's either Redmond's current disaster known as Edge or it's Google axesmiley.png .

Would rather always go with Firefox, no matter where it goes.

I ran the speedometer benchmark tool they linked to on the Developer channel of Chrome. They were within half a point, not very impressive.

 

I have 26 enabled right now. I have a few disabled that I think I can uninstall, but I keep them around anyway just in case. Every single time I needed a new functionality, I looked for an extension that does it. Every single time I looked, I found what I wanted. After several years of doing this, I have the following extensions:

 

  1. Active Stop Button: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/active-stop-button/

The following are disabled and I'm kinda not sure why I don't just remove them, but hey:

 

FireFTP

Menu Editor

Multi Smart Search

I agree. I just mean the death knell of the awesome version of Firefox with all the customizability and whatnot that we're losing. I'm definitely not going to switch to Google Chrome or Edge or any other browser. I won't even try Waterfox or Pale Moon because I need Hardware Acceleration for smoother scrolling, but Hardware Acceleration in Pale Moon or Waterfox right now makes the window run at a refresh rate of 60 Hz, yet my monitor is at 144 Hz. This results in a very laggy and unpleasant experience. I could keep Hardware Acceleration disabled and just deal with choppier scrolling, but I'd rather not live with that.

 

So yeah, no matter what I am staying with Firefox. I just won't upgrade until I have no choice, which I am hoping is years from now. Therefore, Firefox is dead to me right now.

It's a computer!

Just upgraded my Firefox installation to 57, so far looks good. Nothing broken yet, nice to see speed improvements, especially since it wasn't that long ago that it even went multi process (v54).

I can't even fathom needing more than the 1-3 extensions I have per browser (Using Chrome, Opera, Firefox, Edge). The concept of having 20+ reminds me of fixing computers and having to remove all the Internet Explorer toolbars that used to get bundled with terrible software in the early 2000's. I guess I don't spend enough time staring at browser windows for it to be an issue.

I live at my computer. I literally wake up, use the bathroom, and then sit at my computer for 18+ hours. I eat at my computer as well. If I only spent a few minutes at my computer per day or something, then I might only have 1 or 2 extensions and I'd probably just use Google Chrome since it has always been faster.

Set media.autoplay.enabled to false, this is old. What's new are media.cache_readahead_limit and media.cache_resume_threshold. I set them to 999999. This is what stops Youtube from buffering to the end of the video. I use HTML5. The HD part seems to be from cookies, since any funny video I opened in Private Tab tends to goes back to 360p.

I never tried. Because I usually only watch Youtube (mainly product reviews and teardowns), rest I downloads.

Interesting. I'm already using 999999 for both. I forgot about disabling autoplay though! Thanks. That's going to kill a major annoyance for me - one that I've never looked into for some reason. lol

 

Edit: The autoplay setting is bad. It's hard for me to get YouTube videos started quickly upon loading them.

 

Edit 2: Whoa, I found an autoplay tweak that I like much better: media.block-autoplay-until-in-foreground Setting this to true definitely kills a major annoyance for me!
