Restyle the web with Stylish, a user styles manager. Stylish lets you easily install themes and skins for Google, Facebook, YouTube, Tumblr, and many, many other sites. You can even customize Firefox and other programs themselves.

Be in control of which cross-site requests are allowed. Improve the privacy of your browsing by not letting other sites know your browsing habits. Secure yourself from Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) and other attacks.
Collector's Note Cross-Site Request Forgery Protection - A real eye-opener. - I have allowed some destinations that I trust, but for the rest I just enable them temporarily when needed.

Toolbar Buttons by Michael B.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 322 reviews

118,039 users

Adds toolbar buttons to the customize toolbar window in several programs including Firefox, Thunderbird and SeaMonkey. Some of the buttons make commonly preformed actions quicker, others add new functionality.
Collector's Note Quote: "This extension adds buttons to the Customize Toolbar Window. To move them from there to the Toolbar you must right click the toolbar and press customize, select what buttons you want to use and drag them to the toolbar." - The ones I use in order: - Restart (use it all the time), Toggle Styles (If the site is unreadable this will sort it out), Top (go to top of page), Bottom (go to bottom of page). - The next group give you 1click access to various menus: - Options, Extensions, Add-ons, Customize Toolbar, Bookmark Manager. - The next group lets you quickly turn a function on/off : - Toggle JavaScript, Toggle Flash, Toggle Images, Toggle Animation, Toggle Cookies, Toggle Java, Toggle iframes. - To see the whole list in all its glory (95!) see the Long Description on the Toolbar Buttons page.

* Widen Elements & Text.
* Save the changes to Stylish.
* Remove Sidebars & Ads.
* Black on White.
* Isolate.
User empowerment (bsd on aardvark)
Collector's Note Fugly site? No problem! Use r "remove" to hack away at a "busy" site, this leaves room to use d "dewidthify" to enable the text to flow over into the space created. h for "help" and q for "quit". Allows user empowerment over site layout but does not save site changes.
