xd's Ultimate Mozilla Firefox Recommended Add-Ons List

post #1 of 112
Thread Starter 

This list will be continuously updated over time as I find more awesome addons. Suggestions are welcome!

 

Now an OCN article! [CLICK HERE]


Truly, one of the reasons why we use Firefox is the addons. You can make serious customizations to functionality with a huge add-on repository, making a configuration that suits you and can make Firefox better than any other browser! Some addons also optimize performance in addition to experience. Some of my favourite personal selections for firefox addons, what they do, how they're useful to me and how they could be useful to you. Remember, every browser experience is different for everyone, so take your pick!

 

Links on this list lead to the original website of the addon (for the sake of a better, faster update feed) as opposed to the Mozilla Addons page, where possible. Some addons may appear twice in this list due to category grouping.

 

Ad-blocking tools

Security/Privacy/Backup

  • BetterPrivacy - "Super Cookie Safeguard" - Better Privacy protects against a new generation of 'Super-Cookie' which silently conquered the Internet. This new cookies offer unlimited user tracking to industry and market research. Flash cookies are the most critical.
  • Web Of Trust - A website reputation rating identifier
  • OptimizeGoogle - OptimizeGoogle can enhance Google as well as force opt-out of Click tracking among other things.
  • Xpnd.it! short URL expander - displays a tooltip when you hover over a short URL showing site name, info, size, type, detailed analysis, and even a link to report the site as malicious if ever. Supports over 500 short URL services. Works very well on Firefox 4 when addon compatibility forced! Never get RickRoll'd again!
  • Delete Site History - Delete history for specific site
  • FEBE - Backup your Firefox data, offline or online.

 

Useful tweaks

  • Tab Mix Plus - Tab Mix Plus enhances Firefox's tab browsing capabilities. It includes such features as duplicating tabs, controlling tab focus, tab clicking options, undo closed tabs and windows, plus much more.
  • Viewmarks - Visual bookmarks organizer. Page with bookmarks, with thumbnail previews, can be opened; bookmarks can be edited, deleted, moved, and even added with this visual organizer. I have set this page to open in a new tab.
  • Copy Link Text - Copy the text that the link displays as by right clicking and selecting a new context menu option called "Copy Link Text." No more having to highlight and ctrl + C. Much faster.
  • Copy Links - Copy multiple URLs in anchors to clipboard. There are two options to copy URLs. Copy *all* URLs from link elements (anchors) and copy URLs from *selected* link elements.
  • Theme font & size changer - Does what it says: changes the font used by the Firefox UI (not the web pages); I used it to change my main font to Segoe Media Centre, which is slightly better & more visible, in my opinion.
  • TabGroups Menu - Adds a menu in the menu bar that shows a list of tabs, sorted in tab groups - You can use addon Personal Menu to add this menu to the "firefox button" menu, for easier access. It also adds an arrow next to the Tab Groups toolbar icon for accessing this menu.
  • Pano - Adds a sidebar where you can view a tree-style TabGroup list (if you use that feature). Full tab-bar with tab groups functionality in a sidebar panel!!! You could replace the tab-bar with this. Perfectly complements visual Tab Groups organizer.
  • Quick Search Bar - Turns the search bar into a bunch of icons. It seems messy but believe it or not, it's quite useful. Now any search engine you want to use is just one, not two or more, clicks away. Click the icon and it will set the search bar to use that search service. Give some life to the search bar and may even deter you from switching to an omnibar.
  • Download Manager Tweak - Allows the download manager to open in sidebar (if you don't use All-in-one Sidebar) or its own tab, and adds a few other tweaks such as buttons you can press with certain functions.
  • Linkification - Turns text URLs into clickable links. I used to use Fastestfox to do this, but it was the only thing I used fastestfox for; according to Mozilla it slows down firefox more than other addons, so I found this as a replacement.
  • FindBar Tweak - An option-rich Find Bar tweaker with several options, i.e. move find bar to the top, "highlight all" by default, highlights in the schroolbar.... all in one addon!
  • AutoPager - AutoPager is a Firefox/Mozilla extension to autoload the next page(s) in the background. By default AutoPager works with a ton of sites, including Lifehacker, the New York Times, Digg, and, of course, Google. Works on a per-site basis with site rules defining how things work.
  • Thumbnail Zoom Plus - Shows full image when you hover over a thumbnail. Works with many sites including Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Reddit, Flickr, Amazon, deviantART, and more.
  • SkipScreen - Skips unnecessary pages on sites like Rapidshare, Megaupload, zShare, Mediafire, and more. Wherever there are unnecessary pages and superfluous links, Skipscreen will be there.

Useful Searching/Finding Tools

  • Briteclick - Search results in a special sidebar - accessed by regular searchbar or by selecting text. Supports multiple search engine. An amazing way to search the web.
  • Dictionary tooltip - double click a word to see a tooltip with meaning inside.
  • Define - A simple addon that adds a context menu entry when you highlight a word.  Define "_____" on Google!
  • Define Word - A more complicated version of "Define".  Allows you to pick a dictionary site to define on.  Pre-configured with 15 common site choices!
  • Context Search - Select word, right click, search from context menu. This add-on is probably the best out of all of the addons I've seen that do this; this one is simple and keeps everything in a separate, organized, uncluttered menu, and keeps the overall context menu uncluttered. Works on Firefox 4 after forced compatibility.
  • ShowOnMap - Select an address and right click: there is a new "Show on Map" button in the menu that when you click, takes you directly to a google maps page centred over this location. Great shortcut.
  • Add to Search Bar - Right click on any search box and add it to the search bar. Now I can use the search bar to search OCN, Newegg, NCIX, and any other site with a search function!
  • Find All - Adds a "Find All" button to the find bar, which highlights all search terms found and displays them in a separate, easy to view list. It also shows a total of how many times the search term was found on the page. Very useful tool for avid "Ctrl + F" users!
  • Find Suggest - Suggest words from the page when finding. Suggestions show up on the find bar and are clickable.
  • TabFind - Have a lot of tabs open? Use Ctrl + Shift + F to find that tab you need! Works similar to the ctrl + f function to find keywords in a webpage.

Other Useful Tools

  • Webmail Notifier - Access your e-mail inboxes from an icon on the statusbar or toolbar instantly and/or be notified if you have new e-mails. Works with most e-mail sites/clients. Use on private profile/user only as accessing your e-mail account can be done without need to enter password, and/or password can be retrieved by looking at app's options.
  • Video DownloadHelper - The best addon for downloading flash objects such as YouTube .FLV and .MP4 videos.
  • Shortly URL shortener - Press a keyboard shortcut, instantly get a bit.ly shortened link copied to your clipboard!
  • Print Edit - Allows editing of the web page content while in Print Preview mode. Editing the web page prior to printing can compact the layout and remove unwanted content such as adverts, sidebars and blank pages. Any element can be formatted, hidden or deleted.
  • Zoom Page - Possibly one of the most useful addons for those who like to zoom into and out of pages.  Adds a toolbar button that shows you how much a page is zoomed, allows you to zoom in/out, and can even change it so that if you want only text will zoom in and not images.
  • Extension Options Menu - Adds menu item & toolbar button that allows you to quickly access the "options" dialogs of any one of your extensions.  Exceptionally useful!
  • ThumbnailCopy - Adds a "Copy Image As Link" context menu item which allows you to copy the HTML for an image in a link (like a thumbnail image). If you're often posting thumbnail images to blogs, etc. this could be very helpful!
  • Rotate Image - Right click and select context menu item to rotate images on webpages
  • gTranslate - With gTranslate you can translate any text in a webpage just by selecting and right-clicking over it. The extension uses the Google translation services to translate the text.
  • Open With - This extension displays a list of your browsers on your menus and toolbars in Firefox. Clicking on them takes you to the page you're looking at in the browser of your choice.
  • Add Bookmark Here² - Add a menuitem "Add Bookmark Here..." to Bookmarks Menu or Sidebar right-click menu.  Easier in that you can select the folder immediately to add the bookmark in and then add it there.
  • FireShot - Capture the web! Advanced webpage screenshot capability
  • IE Tab + - Allows you to use the embedded IE engine within Mozilla Firefox. Open a page with IE engine without leaving Firefox. Useful for compatibility!
  • 文字 (Moji) - An integrated sidebar-dictionary for Japanese and Chinese; including kanji dictionary.

  • SpringPad Extension - Extension that integrates Firefox with the awesome "Springpad" cloud note-taking service.

 

Themes

  • MX3 - My favourite Firefox theme. Very professional. Supposed to Mimic Maxthon 3 but I think it suits even Firefox, esp. with "small icons" option enabled.

UI tweaks

  • Locationbar² - Can be configured to make the host site more visible and make the segments (i.e. overclock.net/forums/AMD) clickable as links - I use it to split each segment into visible, clickable breadcrumbs and make the host site more visible; I recommend you use with ScrollUp Folder for an awesome experience
  • Tab Preview - Simply get a preview of a tab when you hover over it - very configurable and compatible with the latest firefox.  Just a preview, no extra functions.  It's better that way.
  • Barlesque - Makes add-on bar (statusbar) smaller by keeping it in a corner instead of stretching the screen width, and also has options to hide it, appearing only via a keyboard shortcut that you set or a small button in the lower right corner.
  • Print/Print Preview - adds dropdown menu to the normal "Print" toolbar icon; you can now access print, print preview & page setup. Great addon if you like saving space and having more functions in a single button.
  • Highlight Textboxes Like Google Chrome (Orange) - Does what it says. I think it looks really nice.  There are also more customizable Stylish script options for this though (see below).
  • Tab Counter - Shows a tab counter at the end of the tab bar - can be moved anywhere.
  • Vertical toolbar - Put toolbar icons on a vertical toolbar on the side of the screen that can be configured to only appear if you put your mouse to the left side of the screen. I use it to keep my main top toolbars clean and put those other numerous icons out of the way until I need them.
  • Vertical Bookmarks Toolbar - Extension of Vertical Toolbar, allows you to place bookmarks toolbar items in the vertical toolbar! I don't use it anymore but I know a lot might like this.
  • All-in-one Sidebar - An alternative to Vertical toolbar with more built-in features and integration with sidebars.  I've never been able to come to terms with the behaviour of how this appears/disappears on the screen but this might be useful for you. It creates a toolbar with icons that open further sidebars (incl. the existing bookmarks & history sidebar, and it also adds sidebars for the download & addon page), and you can put additional toolbar icons on it too. Kind of like vertical toolbar.
  • Menu Icons Plus - Menu icon sets and tweaks; enable more menu icons!
  • Pretty Install - Use a doorhanger notification for add-on installation.  Much more compact.
  • Tooltip Plus - Show tooltips for links and images with URLs, icons, alt text, and long titles.
  • Omnibar - Merges Addressbar and Searchbar into one.  Good functionality tools. Might not appease to everyone.
  • Omnibar Plus - Extra Omnibar functionality.

For Minimalists and people who like Compact UIs

  • MinUI - Press CTRL and hide your selection of toolbars. I love it, CTRL alone is pretty much the perfect unused shortcut for this and I can keep my browser UI compact unless things are needed. NOTE: When hiding the scrollbar, you can't scroll as usual - only if you can click the scroll wheel & move the mouse or use the keyboard.
  • LessChromeHD - MozillaLabs Prospector Add-On - Hides all other browser elements (i.e. addressbar, etc.) until hovering over the tab/tab bar. Awesome for minimalists, though I prefer the keyboard shortcut-based approach of MinUI to this.
  • Smart Bookmarks Bar - Compacts the bookmarks bar so that only icons show; has option to display full bookmark name on mouse-over
  • OneLiner - MozillaLabs Prospector Add-On - IE9 style browsing with a single combined tab bar/address bar.  Not so good if you often have a lot of tabs open though.

 

Functionality tweaks and tools

  • FireGestures - Executes various commands with mouse gestures.
  • ScrollUp Folder - Put your mouse bar on URL and use the scroll wheel to "scroll up the folders", and then click the middle mouse button to go to that link - i.e. scroll up from overclock.net/forums/AMD to overclock.net and go
  • Toggle Find Bar - Hide your find bar by pressing "Ctrl + F" again, for those of you who may prefer it over pressing the "ESC" key. (Also possible with FindBar Tweak - see above!)
  • Scrollbar Search Highlighter - Works with the find bar and "Highlight all" option. Puts markers beside scrollbar to show where all the matches can be found on a page; use scroll bar to get there. Makes the function similar to Google Chrome's find function.
  • Grab and Drag - Enables PDF reader-style grab and drag scrolling on web pages. Can be enabled or disabled with toolbar button. Especially good for touch screen devices!
  • Tile Tabs - Split your tabs into two or more tiles.  Excellent functionality tool esp. for widescreen monitors.  I now use it regularly while browsing OCN.  A great space saver or organize

Shortcuts

  • Focus Keyboard - When you type while having nothing selected on a webpage, it automatically focuses onto the address bar. Useful for quick addressbar access. NOTE: For the best experience, disable "tab in order between checked elements" in the options dialog of this addon - or it may affect your browsing experience on some sites including OCN.
  • Firefox's built in "Keyword" feature - Use shorter keywords as shortcuts to access websites - In the "Edit bookmark" dialog there is a text box called "keyword"; you can set your shortcut to a certain bookmark in that text box. That's how I use it to go to overclock.net by simply typing "OCN" in the address bar as a shortcut. Works great with "Focus keyboard".
  • Prospector - Speak Words - Fill in the rest of words as you type them into the location bar; uses the most viewed/favourite site. Can make visiting your favourite sites quicker, along with the built-in"keyword" function.
  • Keyboard Shortcut - Can't remember the shortcuts? Press F12 or go to help > keyboard shortcuts - and you will find an OS-specific/version-specific list of keyboard shortcuts conveniently in front of you.
  • TabFind - Have a lot of tabs open? Use Ctrl + Shift + F to find that tab you need! Works similar to the ctrl + f function to find keywords in a webpage.
  • Copy Link - Copies all links within selected text on a webpage.
  • TabGroups Menu - Adds a menu in the menu bar that shows a list of tabs, sorted in tab groups - You can use addon Personal Menu to add this menu to the "firefox button" menu, for easier access. It also adds an arrow next to the Tab Groups toolbar icon for accessing this menu.
  • Pano - Adds a sidebar where you can view a tree-style TabGroup list (if you use that feature). Full tab-bar with tab groups functionality in a sidebar panel!!! You could replace the tab-bar with this. Perfectly complements visual Tab Groups organizer.

 

Performance Optimization

  • Fasterfox Lite - Can improve Firefox performance with tweaks incl. those related to web-page loading, cache storage, etc. You can see my article on optimizing Firefox for more info on what you can do with this to optimize Firefox.
  • CheckPlaces - Checks your bookmarks if they're valid/pages exist - I use it for that and restoring bookmark favicons
  • Clear Cache - Press F9 or use a toolbar button to instantly clear the cache. Useful for web developers or if you want to clear up some memory.
  • CacheStatus - Adds in the status/iconbar some icons/text containing info about the cache. You can see how much cache is being used and clear all cache, including RAM cache. Much better than "ClearCache" IMO (though you don't get the F9 keyboard shortcut)
  • BetterCache - Web servers often limit a browsers cache by sending special header instructions. Hence some sites won't get cached. This extension filters anti-cache headers (e.g. cache-control) to restore full cache functionality, improving performance.
  • RAMBack - Similar to Clear Cache.  Adds a "Clear Cache" toolbar button.

 

Site-specific tweaks/shortcuts

  • Craigslist Helper - Makes Craigslist easier to use and makes it more productive by adding features such as image previews.
  • Social Fixer - Better Facebook! Adds a whole bunch of things that make Facebook so much better to use.
  • SearchPreview - SearchPreview inserts preview images (thumbnails) of web sites into the Google search results pages. Allows you to request search preview image updates too!
  • OptimizeGoogle - OptimizeGoogle is a Firefox extension that enhances Google search results by adding extra information (like links to Yahoo, Bing, Flikr etc) and removing unwanted information (like ads and spam). Can turn Google Instant off among other things.

Useful tools for us overclockers and computer geeks

  • InvisibleHand - ActiveX-like toolbar pops down from the top if a certain item has a better price on a different site. Factors shipping cost too. Works with Newegg and other computer-related sites. Supports markets in US, UK, Germany, Canada coming soon.
  • PriceBlink - Similar to InvisibleHand; if you are in the US you may prefer this over InvisibleHand. U.S. only at the moment, but it 1. checks more sites 2. checks coupon codes and 3. does support Newegg. Can be used in conjunction with InvisibleHand.

 

Additional Customization Tools

  • Stylish - Add customization scripts, written in simple CSS. Stylish sort of acts as a layer above Firefox and uses simple CSS scritps to customize either the entire browser or specific size. There is a list of Stylish scripts I recommend below. Stylish scripts are installed like any other add-on, updated like any other add-on, and are user-modifyable as well.
  • Stylish-custom - Adds awesome tweaks to Stylish, esp. for script editing & managing. Scroll down to bottom for latest version.
  • Personal Menu - The latest version allows you to customize the menu you open by pressing the Firefox button on Firefox 4+ - I've used it to add extra functionality such as being able to restart firefox from this menu.
  • Keyconfig - Change the keyboard shortcuts and define your own!

 

Miscellaneous

  • Add-On Compatibility Reporter - Do your part!  If you are forcing compatibility of an addon onto a browser version supposedly not supported, you can report whether it is compatible or not.

 

Stylish Scripts - UI customization

  • Disable Dropmarker - Disables the dropmarker in the location bar. I never really needed it. This gives slightly more space for URL text.
  • Firefox 4 - Compact Addons Manager - Makes the entries in add-on manager smaller, can read more at once
  • Addons manager small customizations - Adds customizations as to buttons appearing (only when add-on selected) and other things such as text item appearance, installed date, add-on count on top, removing annoying messages such as the incompatible add-on ones (if you force add-on compatibility), etc... works well with Compact Addons Manager
  • Firefox 4 Squared - Makes the Firefox 4 icons a bit more squarish in style.
  • Vertical Toolbar background persona - Can customize the background colour of "Vertical Toolbar" addon. I have mine customized to match the other toolbars' colours (with MX3 theme). Note that you will have to know HEX (CSS) colours to customize it to the colour you want - you can use this RGB to HEX converter to help.
  • Highlight textboxes like google chrome (orange) - Highlights textboxes in orange colour like Google Chrome
  • Highlight textboxes like google chrome (blue) - made by xd_1771 - I modified the above script for a blue colouring if that is what you prefer.  Also has fade effect.
  • Panorama - Clean and glass - Makes the background of groups on Firefox panorama transparent, to match the Windows aero background.
  • Transparent Menus - Transparent right-click menus! Can be configured to remove the "less-transparent-on-hover" effect and have a single transparency throughout as well.
  • Transparent autocomplete list (incl. search bar suggestions list) - Same thing for autocomplete lists
  • Transparent pretty tooltips - made by xd_1771 from scratch. Makes all tooltips look slightly transparent and very pretty.
  • About:config, about:sessionrestore like mockups - Restores these lists to look more like firefox mockups, incl. reinstating the "remove tab" option when rebooting your crashed session.
  • Awesomebar Popup - Makes awesomebar popup look very nice and can even compact it without compromising ability to view the links of pages(set "Minimalist design" option to "yes")

Stylish Scripts - Site customization

  • Disable Google Fade in - self explanatory. I hate the fade in as it delays my actual ability to access the site right away
  • Google in Segoe UI - Makes all Google sites (including YouTube) use a more modern font for the display
  • Facebook - Improve and simplify style - One of the few Facebook stylish scripts I use. This one removes the right panel and makes the main panel a bit wider. IMO much easier to read things with a layout like this and much more convenient. There was never anything on the right panel I needed anyway.
  • Facebook - Perfection - made by xd_1771 himself. A compliation of some of the best individual scripts for Facebook I have found, along with some of my own modifications, made to create my perfect vision of Facebook. Now a stand-alone script, version 4.0
  • YouTube - No scaling for 720p videos - Tweaks the "large video player" on YouTube so that its actual size is 1280x720 and not 854x480.  Great if you have a large screen.

______________________________________________

How to force "incompatible" Firefox addons

  1. Type about:config into the address bar, and hit Enter or Go.
  2. Click on I’ll be careful, I promise! button at the warning prompt. (if you still have this warning prompt enabled)
  3. Right click on the window, and select New -> Boolean.
  4. Enter extensions.checkCompatibility.4.0 as the preference name (or replace the number "4.0" with what browser version number you have)
  5. Set its value to False.
  6. User can now install or re-enable incompatible extensions.
  7. Note: Test your addons before using first, and do report the compatibility/incompatibility via the Add-on Compatibility Reporter addon

Regarding Open Image in New Tab: the functionality that this provides can also be done by middle-clicking "View Image" in the context menu.

Yeah, and I thought Locationbar2 was a great addon to begin with. I also have addons that allow me to scroll through the tabs bar. Now all I'm looking for is an addon that will open a sidebar with the tabs stacked vertically in it (in addition to the current tab bar and not replacing it) that can be opened and closed with a toolbar button that I can place on vertical toolbar... that might help in dire scenarios when I am running 40 tabs or so that fill up the tab bar and I haven't bothered using Tab Candy to organize them all

You might really like "Focus Keyboard", the built in keyword feature, or the short URL organizer if you compile a lot of tables with links like I do. I just love randomly sitting on a webpage and then typing three letters: "OCN" and then suddenly being at the OCN homepage without having to click or move anything

I would love Locationbar², but someone reported that it conflicts with Status-4-Evar, and I have that extension. :/

I have both extensions.... no conflict for me, not even with any of the tweaks that happen to the addressbar i.e. the "Fission" like progress bar in the background.

Alright then, it's installed.

I like it so far! I've never needed this, but hey!

InvisibleHand is also listed in the "How to find great deals" section of Online Deals. I think it's quite brilliant and I find most deals with this.

I also just found a new one - Barlesque. This one really appeals to me as I like having things out of the way unless needed. Though I rarely ever would need it, but I do store a few buttons leading to addon options and other tools I normally wouldn't use (using status-4-evar's feature of adding toolbar buttons onto the addonbar). Much better way of having it come up in the rare case that I do need something on it, instead of "Right click > enable 'add-on bar' and then have a wholloping screen-wide thing take over the bottom of the screen. More addons continuously being added!
