xd's Ultimate Mozilla Firefox Recommended Add-Ons List - Page 7

I've yet to add those more popular security-based addons, but I'm pretty sure most people already know about adblock anyway
Xmarks is redundant, it slows down your startup and has been replaced by built in firefox sync which is built in
Lastpass I haven't checked out but I am pretty well satisfied with the default password management in firefox also

True, FlashBlock is pretty awesome as well. It prevents YT/Flash Ad's from playing unless you click on them. It's handy when you're using a netbook or a laptop. Do give it a look.

The reason why I use Xmarks is because Firefox Sync doesn't sync my bookmarks/passwords with IE9/Chrome/Android/iOS/Blackberry web browsers, though for syncing to your phones etc, it costs.

Lastpass is amazing. Never have to enter a password again, not to mention AutoLogin. I thought Firefox's password manager was great, this one is freaking amazing.

I'll be sure to check out LastPass and FlashBlock, both seem interesting actually I think FlashBlock seems a very suitable replacement for Noscript, which I removed due to complexity and slow-down
At the moment though I am focusing on beginning my Stylish script part of the list

You removed NoScript? That's blasphemous.

To have to click and decide on every single site got annoying after awhile. I decided to just remove it altogether. There's really probably no need to disable javascript, just flash. FlashBlock, in tandem with Adblock plus, may likely solve this.

Here comes a big one...

TODAY'S NEW ADDONS (8 April, 2011)

Customization
  • Stylish - Highly recommended - 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 - Highly recommended - Adds awesome tweaks to Stylish, esp. for script editing & managing. Scroll down to bottom for latest version.
Themes
  • MX3 - Highly recommended - My favourite Firefox theme and the one I personally use. Very professional. Supposed to Mimic Maxthon 3 but I think it suits even Firefox, esp. with "small icons" option enabled.
Stylish Scripts - UI customization
  • Customize toolbar - Highly recommended - Cleans up the item positioning in the customize toolbar page. Much more visible.
  • 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 - Highly recommended - Makes the entries in add-on manager smaller, can read more at once
  • Addons manager small customizations - Highly recommended - 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 - More square corners on firefox toolbar buttons!
  • Firefox 4 Squared - "MX3" compatible edition - made by xd_1771 - Same as above, I just modified it to remove bugs and work well with the awesome MX3 theme for Firefox
  • Vertical Toolbar background persona - Can customize the background colour of Vertical Toolbar. 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) - Highly recommended - Highlights textboxes in orange colour like Google Chrome
  • Highlight textboxes like google chrome (blue) - Highly recommended - made by xd_1771 - I modified the above script for a blue colouring if that is what you prefer.
  • Panorama - Clean and glass - Highly recommended - Makes the background of groups on Firefox panorama transparent, to match the Windows aero background.
  • Transparent Menus - Highly recommended - Transparent right-click menus! Can be configured to remove the "less-transparent-on-hover" effect and have a single transparency throughout as well (though you will have to modify the script)
  • Transparent autocomplete list (incl. search bar suggestions list) - Highly recommended - Same thing for autocomplete lists
  • Transparent pretty tooltips - Highly recommended - made by xd_1771 - made from scratch. Makes all tooltips look slightly transparent and very pretty.
  • About:config, about:sessionrestore like mockups - Highly recommended - Restores these lists to look more like firefox mockups, incl. reinstating the "remove tab" option when rebooting your crashed session.
  • Awesomebar Popup - Highly recommended - 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 - Highly recommended - 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.

xd's add-on count: 65
xd's stylish count: 20 scripts

Hmm. I love it because I am far more in control this way. It's nice because as soon as I set my permissions, they're set and I no longer have to worry about them.

I like being in control too but there's a point where it goes too far (i.e. temporarily re-enabling, disabling the wrong sites, etc.). I want to use an internet browser to browse, not create walls against javascript or flash that end up quite nauseating to manage.

It's easy to manage: when I visit a site I've never visited before, I set my permissions and then they're permanent right away. When I visit that site again, my permissions are still set.

So it's always a "set it and forget it" thing for each site your installation of NoScript has never seen you visit before. Although sometimes I don't want to visit a site ever again, so I don't even bother setting any permissions - especially if all I'm there to do is read a short article someone posted.

That's what I thought actually. Sometimes I need to disable for some unknown reason or sometimes I can't figure out which to enable so I end up temporarily enabling all of them on the majority of sites anyway
Focus on browsing rather than messing with settings instead of browsing, it's one of my personal preferences I guess. Not much difference with or without NoScript as to how pages load or whatever anyway IMO.

Anyways I'd like to ask something. Does anyone know of any Stylish scripts or addons that auto-hide the scrollbar until either A. I hover my mouse in that area or B. begin scrolling (i.e. scroll wheel or keyboard)? Perhaps I could develop such a script myself but I'm quite the novice at writing these scripts at the moment.

NoScript allows me to block certain things that I can't block with a Hosts file or with Adblock Plus.
