What are some good Firefox add-ons? Somebody told me that unless you have good add-ons then Firefox is pointless.

Wait 5 hours
Be accused by the promoter of being late
Get told we have only a 10 minute set
Play pure noise for 10 minutes

Worst and most amusing gig of my life.

Anyone else had this kind of **** happen?!

Dimebag had a worse gig.

You heard correctly.
- AdBlock Plus: no more annoying ads
- NoScript: no malicious scripts
All else is personal preference, really. But those are a must, especially AdBlock.

Firefox isn't pointless without any add-on's. Whoever told you that was exaggerating.

But do get Adblock Plus. It's good for security.

...modes and scales are still useless.

I know I can click those annoying scripted Rickrolling links now without having to bring up Task Manager to get rid of it... downside is I have to constantly remember that scripts are being blocked. But hey, it's a fair trade to me!

I like download helper.

I got foxyproxy yesterday and I don't really like it yet...I think I'm going to stick to manually setting a proxy until I get more comfortable with it...

I find all the extra themes to be rather ugly... opinion of course, but still.

Leechblock. It's a great productivity tool. I'd have failed my degree already without it.

Neither the Aero theme or Fasterfox, which I both wanted to give a try, are working with the current version of FF (3.0.7)...

whats leechblock?

It blocks you from accessing certain websites between specified times... for example, you can disallow yourself to access UG from midnight to 4pm...

Or 4chan <.<

Basically you put in all the sites that you waste time on (UG, Youtube, Facebook etc) and then if you want to do 3/4 hours of work you just tell it to block those sites for 3/4 hours.

I have Flagfox, Image Zoom, NoScript, AdBlock Plus, and Forecast Fox on mine, and all with the iFox theme.

Works wonderfully. I love Firefox.

that seems pretty cool, athough i would be pretty tempted to just turn it off...

You can set it so it won't allow you.

But you could still use another browser right?

Ya of course. I can't when I'm in uni though because we have to run everything through a proxy server, and it is different for different browsers, so I just haven't read the instructions for how to set it up for Google Chrome or IE

It's just like... so ridiculous it's brilliant. Instead of getting on, actively working against your self in attempt to make your self get on.

NoScript is the best addon for me personaly... It saves you from the ClickJacking toolbars wich "look" harmless. It also stops pop-ups and random stuff... Baisicly it stops all scripts... It can be a btch however, but thats why you can use Make Script Permission Permenent... It helps in one way. Be sure to allow only the ones you trust... Other add-ons are a little usefull, but if you add to many, itll take 4 years to open the browser.(And tke up your memory space >.>Try googling good add-ons.. Hope it helps

No it's not. It's simply a case of finding it hard to concentrate for extended periods (as most males do, women can concentrate for long periods of time while men tend to concentrate in short bursts of 15-35 minutes with 5/10 minute intervals in between). In the periods in between chapters or tasks or whatever I tend to get distracted and will usually end up watching music videos or reading stupid articles or on here taking to some retard about socialism or whatever, and end up spending way too long doing it. This eliminates that time wasting completely.

If you understand the way people concentrate you realise that it's actually quite a good idea.

so... how does shutting of the internet for 45 minutes help? :S

Anyway, most people get on with just working fine

I could do 15 minutes then stop... i'd just stop, i have to start and keep going for a decent amount of time and then stop. If i stopped and started i'd get nothing done at all, lol.
