Yet Another FireFox Extensions List
Holy cow! Who needs another Mozilla Addons / Firefox Extension List!? Well, it’s here for my own reference, but you I welcome your own perusal. Maybe you’ll find something here you’ve yet to try.
- Mr. Tech Local Install
When it comes to Mozilla Add-ons, this is one of the few that I almost always install. There are just too many benefits from having Mr. Tech Local Install as part of your Mozilla profile to go without it. For example, as the screenshot illustrates, among the practical (albeit, perhaps risky) features of MTLI is that it allows the user to disable the browser from checking for compatibility, when installing an extension. The downside to disabling the built-in Firefox check, of course, is the potential for ruining your Profile settings, possibly to the point of needing to build a new profile– but there is a sort-of ‘workaround’: just make a duplicate copy of your Profile directory before you play around with MTLI, and incompatible extensions!
You’ve probably noticed by now here (and elsewhere), because of the lengthy name, this extension is often referred to as an acronym: MTLI. The extension is very popular among Seamonkey, and Suiterunner users because it affords and extended ability for installing extensions, and general configuration of the application which would otherwise be absent in Seamonkey. MTLI is also has some features built-in, like Paste UserAgent/ Build ID, designed to help the user-contributors who prove feedback on the nightly builds.
- Navigate “Up” in the folder hierarchy of [almost] any web site.
- Profile Switcher
- Firefox users now have the ability to switch the Firefox user profile â€œon-the-flyâ€, without the need to shutdown and restart the application. Please visit the extension authorâ€™s home-page for the latest updated version of the Firefox Profile Switcher extension (also available for Thunderbird). I verify that the software works flawlessly, but PLEASE read any information available regarding the installation of this third-party software on your computer.
- NTB Tab Bar
- That’s New Tab Button on Tab Bar or just NTBTB for all of the hip folk. Stop and think for a second, and you’ll know exactly what this “extension” does. You already have the functionality as a default in your browser, but the function is missing the button. NTBTB gives you the button you’ve been looking for all this time!
- Custom Buttons
- Create your own custom Firefox buttons. Similar to the idea behind the way some more advanced Opera Users manipulate their browser to do their bidding, the Custom buttons Extension XPI for Firefox allows for creating custom scripts which cause the browser to perform… virtually ANY action when clicked.
Yan’s Custom Buttons is definitely one of THE COOLEST, MOST USEFUL xpi’s you’ll ever install. Check out the repository where the many users share their own ideas!
“Undo” is one of my personal faves
- URL Manipulation : Uppity
- Move – up in the directory structure. Uppity is very convenient for browsing web sites which have a heirarchy of sub-folders, such as 127.0.0.1 , for example (i.e. localhost! )
- Bookmark Customization : Open Book
- Customize your bookmark add – dialogue with OpenBook.
Haven’t used it in a while, admittedly
- I haven’t tried it yet, but it sounds like my kinda extension: FlashBlock will block Macromedia Flash Objects in a page, while including a button to easily display them in the unlikely event that viewing Flash is desired
- Ez Sidebar
- Ez Sidebar is a convenient way of organizing and viewing the sidebar, including allowing the Sidebar (Firefox) to “float” free from the main browser window.
