Blocks annoying video ads on YouTube, Facebook ads, banners and much more.
Adblock Plus blocks all annoying ads, and supports websites by not blocking unobtrusive ads by default (configurable).
Collector's Note I have been using this for a long time! I am so used to using it, that I simply can't use Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari, or anything else BUT Firefox! After using this for years, and then using any other Web Browswer... NO WAY... I never realized how many ads were bogging down the internet until I tried using another browser! Not only does this addon make web pages so much cleaner, it decreases the time it takes to completely load a page DRAMATICALLY! Because all those ads on Myspace take time to load, and make you scroll so much more to get to what you want! Seriously, I can't image browsing the web without this addon!
DownThemAll! by Nils Maier, Federico Parodi, others
The first and only download manager/accelerator built inside Firefox!
Collector's Note Haven't found a simpler or faster way of downloading stuff! I can download 50 MB in just a few seconds with Comcast and this addon! Not a few minutes, but a few seconds!
Greasemonkey by Anthony Lieuallen, Aaron Boodman, others
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. It also includes a full-featured session manager.
Collector's Note I get upset when I can't use this addon because of a new version of Firefox! This is a neccesity! It adds so many features and makes Tabbed browsing so much better! And there are hidden options that took me a while to discover! Like, if you open a new tab, you can make it show your home page on each new tab! Middle Click to open a new tab with your copied text, and more. I love this addon!
Xmarks is the #1 bookmarking and open tab add-on. Keep your bookmarks, and open tabs backed up and synchronized across computers and browsers. Mobile phones with Premium access. Utilize LastPass to sync passwords!
Collector's Note I can't even write much for this addon! Its the first thing I install! I use Weave for syncing Tabs and History, and Xmarks for sycing Bookmarks and Passwords! I actually have a Folder in my bookmarks labeled "Firefox Add-ons" and when I install this addon and sync my bookmarks, I am then able to install my favorite addons using my bookmarks from an older Firefox! This addon is perfect and I have been using for years... Way before 2.5 started syncing Passwords, and even before 2.0. Install this addon and you will never have to worry about loosing your Bookmarks and Passwords again! This has saved my butt hundreds of times over the last few years! (If you use Portable Firefox or you have several computers, INSTALL THIS ADDON!)
Notifier for gmail, yahoo, hotmail, aol and more webmails.
X-notifier(aka WebMail Notifier) checks your webmail accounts and notifies the number of unread emails...
Supports : gmail, yahoo, hotmail, POP3/IMAP, facebook, twitter and more
Collector's Note Very Essential Addon! If you use Yahoo Mail, or Hotmail, install this addon! It checks gmail to, but I would recommend typing "Gmail Manager" in the Get Addons area of Firefox. Gmail Manager handles Mailto!
gtranslate by Pau Tomàs, Pierre Bertet, others
With gtranslate you can translate any text in a web page just by selecting and right-clicking over it. The extension uses the Google translation services to translate the text.
Collector's Note Very useful if you visit sites every day where not everyone speaks english!
TinEye is a reverse image search engine. The extension adds a context menu item so you can search for an image to find out where it came from, how it is being used, if modified versions of the image exist, or to find higher resolution versions.
Screengrab by Andy M
Screengrab! saves webpages as images... but not for new versions of Firefox.
FF changes too fast and I don't have the time to maintain it anymore. Bugs have developed that I am not in a position to investigate.
Therefore, Screengrab is EOL.
Collector's Note When using a portable Firefox, this addon is priceless! At home I use Lightscreen for screenshots. But this addon comes in handy when trying to take a quick screenshot of something on the screen. (Like a threat email from somebody, and you need proof!) This addon is essential!
Grab and Drag by Ian
Enables Adobe Acrobat-style grab and drag scrolling, Flick gestures, and Momentum scrolling in Firefox. Useful for (older) pen or touchscreen-based devices for which these gestures are not natively supported. Not useful on Windows 8 touch devices.
Collector's Note I have a Toshiba Tablet PC. So this addon is GREAT! Its the first addon I install when I start a fresh install of firefox on my tablet! (I heard about it from jkkmobile. He used it in all of his videos!)
We’re sorry to say we can’t maintain Skipscreen anymore. We’d love to see someone carry on with it. If you’d like to buy Skipscreen, or otherwise find it a good home, please contact us at email@example.com.
Collector's Note This addon is AWESOME! They are constantly supporting new sites! It makes uisng RapidShare, MegaUpload, zShare, Deposit Files and many more sites, NOT SO BAD! On some sites like zShare and MegaUpload, it even bypasses the wait time automatically! This addon is awesome, PEFECT, and does NOT get in the way of your browsing! It doesn't add an icon or anything to Firefox. It just stays quite until you visit a site that makes you wait to download something.
View and manage downloads from a tidy statusbar - without the download window getting in the way of your web browsing.
Thanks Tekzilla for your awesome review! Click here to see their video: http://youtu.be/BUDqWrJ-Vao
Collector's Note Very neat and simple way of showing you what you are downloading without it getting in the way or opening a new window!
The original Gmail notifier for multiple accounts. Allows you to receive new mail notifications along with viewing account details including unread messages, saved drafts, spam messages, labels with new mail, space used, and new mail snippets.
Collector's Note This addon is priceless! It checks all of your gmail accounts, shows snippets of new messages, and plays a sound when you get a new message! No other Gmail addon comes close to this one!
AutoPager automatically loads next pages when you reach the end of a page. It works on a ton of sites,Google,Yahoo..
It works well with most other add-ons adblock plus, WOT and most of the greasemonkey scripts.
You can also try AutoPagerLite.
Collector's Note The guy that made this addon... He updates the list of sites this supports uppon request! This addon is awesome for YouTube, Google, Flickr, Amazon, Ebay, Gmail (Basic HTML mode only), Facebook Photos, Myspace Photos and so many more! No more clicking "Next" hundreds of times with this addon! It works great with the Firefox addons site to!
CoLT by Jonah Bishop
CoLT (short for "Copy Link Text") makes it easy to copy either a link's text, or both the link text and its URL in a format you specify. This non-invasive extension simply appears as context menu items when you right-click a link. Fully customizable!
Collector's Note I used to use Copy Link Text. Because I was constantly copying link "text" and pasting it in comments. But sometimes I accidentally clicked the link. But someone from Downloadsquad (or lifehacker) posted a list of essintial addons. So a couple weeks ago, I thought I would give it a try... See, the things is, I post HTML links multiple times a day. And I had searched high and low for an addon that copied links (and text) as html. But finally settled with a bookmarklet called "Make Link". Just google "Bookmarklet Make Link". Then I came across this addon. I uninstalled Copy Link Text and now I only use this addon for copying links as text, and/or html!
