Contribute you favorite add-ons here to provide your fellow UGers the best Firefox experience possible!

Will be updated often.


Various Add-Ons (will be further organized later):


Adblock Plus - This neat little add-on actually blocks ads on whatever webpage you are viewing. The banners on the top of the screen? Gone. The annoying scroll over ads along the side of the page? Bye-bye. Those idiotic games that tell you to "Shoot 10 Ducks to Win an iPod!". Done. It may not seem like much, but this add-on can greatly increase your browsing speed.

autoHideStatusbar -
This add-on auto-hides the statusbar at the bottom of the screen. If that little bar ever annoys you, you can now rid yourself of it. The bar reappears when you hover over a link.

Ctrl-Tab -
This add-on lets you cycle through tabs using the 'ctrl+Tab' combo. 'Ctrl+Shift+A' brings up a cool pop up that lets you view thumbnails of all tabs and allows you to do a text search just in case you lose track of a tab.

Download Statusbar -
Gets rid of the annoying download box you get when you download files and places a bar in the statusbar that allows you to monitor the downloads status from there.

DownThemAll! -
A mass downloader. Handles all of your needs with relative ease.

Embedded Objects - Have you ever wondered how to download YouTube videos and Myspace Music? Well...here you go.

Fast Dial - Shows all of your favorite websites whenever you open up Firefox. Instead of typing in a web address, just click a thumbnail!

GooglePreview - For Google and other popular search engines. Shows a thumbnail of a website and that websites popularity rating by its link on the search page. Lets you know if a site is legit before you go to it.

GoogleTube -
Search up any YouTube vid on Google and watch it from the search page in a pop up instead of loading the whole YouTube page.

IE Tab - Are there some websites that only work for you when you use Internet Explorer? Well, open up one IE tab inside of Firefox's window. Never have to run IE again!

Locationbar - Makes links out of the address in the address bar. Similar to Google Chrome.

New Tab Button on Tab Right -
Have the option to create new tabs right next to your tabs instead of in the 'File' menu.

Open In Google Chrome - Same as the 'IE Tab' add-on except for that it opens a whole separate Google Chrome window. Still experimental.

Youtube Tooltip -
Sick of being Rickroll'd? Use this add-on! Hover over a link and you'll see the title of the video before you click on it.


Themes, Theme Enhanchers and Appearance Add-Ons:

Chromifox - Makes Firefox take on the appearance of Google Chrome.

Total ReChrome -
Adds finishing touches and small details and fixes to Chromifox. A must have for the full Chrome Firefox.

XboxFox -
Want something simple, but cool? This theme replaces the 'Refresh' button with the Xbox 360's 'A' button. Replaces 'Stop' with 'B'. And substitutes 'Home with the center 360 button. Also adds a green scroll bar. Prefect for gamers like myself.


Once again, I need Pit contribution!

It's a the that makes your window look like an Xbox 360 (all of the buttons on a controller are used for the stop, refresh and home buttons). I'd show you but I don't know how to do a damn printscreen on the stupid laptop. D:

It sounds simple enough, but can you explain what it does? I'm SUPER new to Firefox. I just stopped using Google Chrome to try FF out.

Oh, and what's the add-on that lets you download Youtube vids and MySpace songs?

It gets rid of any ads on the page (banner ads, ads off to the side, etc)
as for the downloading app there's quite a few

edit:I use download helper for downloading media in general, I also have iMacro, really easy to use, but i hardly ever use it

Look at my first post. All of those are really nice to have. I'm not sure about much else because I'm relatively new also.

Because there are oh so many threads about firefox add ons.

Do me a favor.

Search up all the Firefox threads, then tell me which ones are about add-ons, then show me which ones are still actively being viewed.

After that suck me off.

Fire gestures is pretty cool, Fast Dial as well. Abduction! is well, neat, but I think I've only used it once. Greasemonkey is useful, I really only have scripts for KoL (which some stopped working after some damn updates) but there are useful scripts out there, I just haven't bothered.

I searched "firefox ad ons" and there were like 2 recent threads specifically about add ons. The rest of the results came up as threads about other problems with firefox and irrelevant threads.

There are no threads like this when you search "Firefox Add-Ons". At least not any recent ones that wouldn't constitute a necropost. And the one thread that does exist has a whole bunch of random theme pics and questions about browser malfunction in addition to add-ons. I always use the searchbar before I post so, GTFO.


Anyways, I just added a couple new additions to my add-ons list. Now I have:

Adblock Plus
autoHideStutusbar
Ctrl-Tab
Download Statusbar
DownThemAll!
Embedded Objects
Google Preview
GoogleTube
IE Tab
Locationbar^2
New Tab Button on Tab Right
New Tab Homepage
Open In Google Chrome
Tab Mix Plus
Youtube Tooltip
Total ReChrome

and my current theme is Chromifox (makes Firefox look like Google Chrome). Freaking awesome.

Do you find yourself wasting time on the internet?
Do you lack willpower?
Are you supposed to be doing work right now?

I have the solution: Leechblock.
With Leechblock you simply enter in all the sites that suck away your time (UG?) and with the click of a button you can block those sites for a specified time (3 hours or whatever) until you've finished your work, and then enjoy normal browsing again.

it just hit me that there needs to be a UG searchbar add on so that it is always in your view right at the top of your browser...might help people use the searchbar more often.


Hmm...no.

However, an 'idiot stfu and look at the whole thread' add-on could be quite revolutionary.

Those who persist to use searchbar jokes are just mindless sheep who think they are funny. Tell me why you bothered to respond to this thread if you didn't like it? Why not just pass it up? But no, you pushed it back up to the top...thank you.


Revamped the initial post to be more helpful and descriptive. Will be updating it often.

how about opera...no its not an add on. its a straight up better browser. cant tell you how many times it has protected me from a virus that firefox let through...not to mention that most of the add-on features come standard on the smaller and proven faster opera browser

I'll get around to trying Opera eventually. But for know I'm gonna stick with either Chrome or Firefox.

greasemonkey and greased lightbox. best app for viewing pics, zooming into them without loading the page, and not getting viruses

I prefer Firefox to opera, Firefox has a lot of stuff I use that Opera doesn't and I haven't noticed a speed difference at all.

oh and I don't think Greasemonkey has been mentioned yet, it's awesome.

Currently I have:

Ad-Block Plus
Cool Iris
Download Status Bar
Fasterfox lite
Flash Block
Forecast Fox
Web of Trust

I really recommend Flash-block and Cool Iris.

Flash Block blocks all flash content of a site, which makes for a better browsing experience. No more adds. It can be disabled for games.

Cool Iris is an enhanced (very interactive) video search engine that searches all the popular engines (Youtube, Google video, etc.). It's great, way better than just using Youtube or the likes.
Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.

When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.

BugMeNot allows you to access a shared account if you want to use a service but can't be bothered to make your own account/get spammed.
ChatZilla, a nice barebones IRC client
Fasterfox for GOING FASTER
Flashblock is pretty much a godsend
TabRenamizer for the paranoid
