It’s bound to happen…

Oh yeah…

:wonder: In before “Opera/Internet Explorer/etc…” is better… dood!


#3

lovin the av :tup:

edit: i just saw it up there sorry ^__^*
i use NoScript

it prevents bad websites to run scripts
but you have to pretty much allow a new website the first time youre on it

it keeps the pr0n spyware away :tup:

I use Opera now, but FF was good to me in the past. Fuck IE

That said:

Firefoxmenubuttons
Image Zoom
Adblock
IE View - For pages that only open in shit
Gtranslate
Gmail manager
All-in-one gestures - Opera mouse control. Cant browse without it anymore
save link in folder
options menu
Videodownloader or getvideo - To download of youtube.com

Input any of these names when searching, I dont feel like looking up all URLs

#11

compact menu 2 it scrunches down that pesky long “FILE EDIT BOOKMARKS…” toolbar down into a dropdown button saves alotta space

Mourning Coffeeadds a button to your toolbar and when clicked on opens what ever reads you want/have for that day, good for maintaining all those webcomics i read (ex:if its wednesday and i click on it PA, fanboys, fasthack,entensity opens up…if its tuesday then just vg cats opens up)

gmail manager

and since i use foobar
foobar controls 0.3


#12

Is there anything that stops those annoying Flash advertisements from playing sounds?


#13

Ad-block should block the ad all together.

@Dood:
:tup: Great list! Thanks alot… Dood.


#14

I know it’s already on the list, but I can highly recommend fasterfox.
Nice list dood


#15

Just alittle something I found at www.download.com. Firefox Extensions.


#16

I think there’s a FireFox addon that will save youtube videos for you. I don’t remember what it’s called though.


#17

its called videodownloader… lol

#18

:tup: Thanks for posting in this thread guys. Hopefully more will join in with more cool stuff.

Hey holmez, that McAfee thing is nice! :sad: but when I use it it takes the position that normally would show my weather updates. Do you know of a way of running it without it being in the status bar? I look through the options but they don’t have many tweaks… dood.


#19

Mouse Gestures Do simple commands by holding the right mouse button and dragging; eg. click to the left goes back a page, to the right goes forward. I think Opera has this as a native feature, and from going from Opera to Mozilla you miss it a lot.
