Make your bookmarks bar better. Roomy Bookmarks Toolbar can: hide bookmarks/folders name(dock like), multirow, autohide and many another features(more than 20).
Customize your bookmarks bar using one add-on.
Make any pages' search functionality available in the Search Bar (or "search box")...
Collector's Note You can add many search engines to your firefox search bar from the Mycroft Project website. I use search engines for many purposes from searching Song lyrics, to use the dictionary and the thesaurus, to search for an email in my GMail inbox, to search for people on Facebook etc. This addon is indispensable to me. I use it in the following ways (A). From the mycroft project website, I have added Google search for pages within the last 1 day, 1 week, 1 month and 1 year to the search box. This is immensely helpful. If I want latest news, I only search for webpages that have been updated/created within the last 1 day/1 week and so on. If I want to know about the latest research on Down's syndrome, I search using the Google search for 1 year. Perfect! (B). My translation needs are very basic. I use these three more efficient methods to translate pages or text within pages: 1. Bookmarklets 2. Flagfox addon 3. Simply go to the google translate page and use the "Add to Search bar" addon to right click in the translate box and Add it to your firefox search engines! Voila, now you can simply paste text in your firefox search bar and get its translation in a new tab. It becomes even better if you use the addon "Selected Search" too. With Selected Search, you don't need to paste your text in the search bar and press enter. If you have 'Selected Search' you only need to select the text you want to have translated and then press the button for google translate among the search engines that pop-up - a new tab with the translation pops up.
Bring your bookmarks into view with just a gesture. Move the sidebar across the screen. Open a different sidebar by just clicking its title. And more! Keeps your sidebar simple and quick to access!
The main feature of SearchPreview is to enhance your search results pages. It inserts site preview images (thumbnails), popularity ranks and sponsored links (where available) into Google™, DuckDuckGo™, Yahoo™ and Bing™ searches.
Collector's Note Also see the addon "Search GBY" which adds a few more functions. If search preview is all you're interested in, then chose this addon over Search GBY.
Between simple tweaks such as placing the findbar in the top corner, to the powerful "Find in All Tabs" tool, it has everything to make the Find Toolbar a powerful and accessible research tool!
Cache clearing made easy. One click.
Collector's Note A good maintainence addon. Stops Firefox from bloating up over a period of time.
Select a number of links with a rectangle and open them all in new tabs in the same or a new window(s), download them or copy them to the clipboard. You can also lasso checkboxes to quickly check or uncheck them.
Collector's Note Multilinks is better. Using both of them together also has its advantages if you're smart with your settings.
Save time by speeding up repetitive tasks. Get faster, parallelized downloads, see definitions, auto-load the next page, improve searching, and more. FastestFox will dramatically enhance your productivity!
Collector's Note Some useful functions. But it takes up a lot of RAM. So, I recommend it only if you use less than 50 addons.
Various enhancements for build-in "master password" (MP)
-Locks master security device on demand or after specified time
-Prompts for MP on browser startup
-Suppresses all or duplicate MP prompts
-Locks up entire application or individual windows
Collector's Note Locks your Firefox windows with an opaque password protected screen if you have been away for x number of minutes. There is no way to circumvent it if you adjust the settings properly. Be careful to remember your password.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Text_to_Voice_(Firefox). TTS gives Firefox the power of speech. Select text, click the button on the bottom right of Firefox window and this add-on speaks the selected text for you. Audio is downloadable.
Collector's Note I use it to play quotations and poems on websites like QuoteDaddy etc. Quite good.
Removes formatting from copied text.
Collector's Note This is an older but still very functional addon. See Copy Plain Text 2 instead.
Integrates location bar and search bar into one. Shows search and url suggestions. Quickly switch search engine using search keywords. Provides different auto-complete popup styles for compact displays.
