If it interests you, here’s a list of extensions for Firefox that I have installed:
- Nice 26k extension that puts icons next to menu items and makes them look, well, cute. Works best with the default theme. Also works under classic Mozilla but not yet under Thunderbird.
- Described by some as being almost mandatory – while I wouldn’t go that far, it does have some useful features, like being able to control the tab context menu and re-order tabs. You can also move the tab bar around and force new windows to open in new tabs. Insanely powerful, but very useful.
- Randomises the name of the browser. Just a bit of fun 🙂 . Mozilla Waterkangaroo, anyone?
- Link Toolbar
- Brings back the link toolbar from classic Mozilla, but it appears at the right-hand side of the status bar instead and can be customised so that it only shows icons, thus taking up minimal screen space. Useful for finding sites with RSS/Atom feeds.
- Show Failed URL
- Mandatory for anyone who has XUL error pages enabled. With XUL error pages enabled, you get an IE-like page when Firefox cannot load, instead of a less descriptive and annoying dialog box, however, the address bar gets garbled. This fixes that. Should really be included as standard, but, eh.
- Installed on the off chance that I decide to change themes and need to install a theme from a .jar file.
- I used to have a couple of extensions which required this, but neither are still installed. This is just here because I haven’t removed it.
And yet, despite having all these extensions installed, Firefox still works fine 😀 .
