Thread: List your favorite Firefox plugins!

  1. #71

    Seo tools and addons for browser.

    I am Suvash Datta from India. I am a graphic and web designer and also a SEO expert. We get on web a lot of SEO and web design addons for our browser to make our web design and SEO activities easier. But only for Firefox have the largest collection of these addons and tools. Some of them are autofill, google toolbar, SearchStatus, Seo for firefox and many more statistic tools and addons. So Firefox is best to me. What is you idea?

    I'm also a big fan of Firefox because of its great interface, simplicity and many addons. Most say Chrome is faster though, but in the Firefox 3.5 version it seemed that the speed got way much better than before!

    What is your favourite Firefox add-on ? Mine is probably Adblock Plus.


    My favorite is WOT: Web of Trust. One of the best Firefox add-on.

    It helps in in blocking unsafe sites from access and gives warning if you are entering into one.

    Mine favourite plugin would be Personas as I can choose my FireFox themes easily.

  5. Firefox Extensions - warp factor nine

    I started out totally hating Firefox in the beginning, I didn't start using it until about v1.5 and now I use it more than any other browser. I probably wouldn't use FF so much if there weren't so many great extensions available though.

    For web designers :

    The number one extension for me and probably many other people is the Web developer toolbar. That was the first "thing" that forced me to keep switching back to Firefox over the other browsers that I normally used before.

    If you are trying to build a site or even just a web page the extensive information you can get from the Web developer toolbar really makes a big difference.

    Firebug, as already mentioned many times is definitely a handy tool. There are some very cool addons for firebug available, which when combined help make Firefox one of the greatest friends you'll ever have for web designing / developing.

    View source chart -

    Useful code collapsing extension for viewing a web pages source code and hiding / showing only selected parts. This is a great help when there's a ton of code to go through.

    Save Complete -

    I always hated in the past how when you saved a webpage in IE it would rewrite the source code to absolute garbage and you lose the original code completely.

    Firefox "save page as" also seems to have problems saving a webpage properly, and often leaves some files out that can make a web page fairly useless if you try to look at it offline. This extension does a good job to save a web page in it's original form and gets most of the associated files that go with it.

    JSView -
    This is good for viewing page source code and viewing the source for all related css / js files.

    For security:

    No-Script -

    No script is a powerful script blocking firewall right in your browser. Not perfect, but it can save you from being automatically hijacked or infected from visiting a malicious or hacked website that uses iframes or scripts to redirect you.

    With the rate of malvertising through high profile ad networks on the rise, this means that you can go to a well known site like the New York Times or even hotmail and be infected by some very nasty stuff.

    There is a massive criminal industry behind the fake antivirus hijacks in particular, and these hijacks are delivered mostly through hijacked websites, or fake video codec websites. At the very least, no script can give you a fighting chance.

    This will most likely annoy the shit out of you in the beginning because you have to train it for each new website you visit, but weigh that inconvenience up against having to clean out your whole pc from a fake anti virus or rootkit infection. I also recommend using admuncher to filter out page content, especially as right now yahoo have a large amount of hijacks running through their various ad networks.


    Secure Login -

    I have more passwords than I will ever remember, and I have so many pieces of paper with passes written down that I end up losing track of them in the end. Like when you move house, dammit where's that book gone now with all the passwords ?

    Using the Secure Login extension means I only have to type a website password in once to login and then I can save it for next time so I don't have to go looking for that pass again. I don't like how some services offer to store your passwords on their site, and I really don't need to have another program running just to manage my logins.

    Secure login might help stop you from using the same password for everything, which tends to happen when you start getting lazy and tired of making a new password for every different website you need to login in to.

    Secure login also has some impressive security features to help protect your passwords from being exploited / stolen. At the moment it looks like this project is looking for a new developer, but it still works great for me.


    For privacy freaks Useragent switcher and Refcontrol can be useful to have control over what websites are able to read from your browser.

    UserAgentSwitcher -
    Ref Control -

    Extensions like these could help to avoid Hijacks that target certain browser vulnerabilities by using browser sniffing techniques to launch particular attacks targeted at specific browsers. Often though, hijackers make use of exploit packs which try to target as many different combinations of browser exploits as possible.

    Refcontrol could be a good protection against things like sites which have hacked .htaccess files designed to launch redirect attacks against people with certain referers. This is very popular way to hijack people, such as when someone visits a hacked/ infected site from google or another search engine they are hijacked, but if someone visits thast same hijacked/infected site directly with no referer they do not get hijacked at all.

    Proxilla -

    Use Glype proxies with firefox.

    Random stuff:

    I also like using tab mix plus, hash colored tabs, fission and download status bar. Download helper is great too.

    There's so many good extensions available, I try not to have everything enabled at the same time until I actually need to use them. I usually only have a small core number of extensions enabled by default.

    I liked the concept of "Add to search bar" extension so you can add your own search engines, it doesn't work 100% of the time though.

    Firefox and IE really suck bigtime compared to the Greenbrowser / MYIE line of browsers in this area, Greenbrowser allows you to just type whatever you want straight into your search engines list.

    I really don't like how both IE and FF force you to choose from a list of search providers that they choose for you.. FF does offer a much better search list, at least you can get the Scroogle SSL search added to FF -

    Last one or this post will end up turning into a book chapter.

    Url Lister :

    Allows you to quickly and easily save all the urls for each open tab in 3 different formats, plain text, formatted html with "a href" links or as an unordered list. Copy all urls is a similar one I use to save all llinks from open tabs too.

    Go take a break and rest your eyes now ok
