Firefox extensions

These are the firefox extensions I use today. I hope some of them are as useful for you as they are for me. If you know any extensions I should not have left out or think that one of the below is outdated just leave a comment..

  • adblock plus: ad blocker
  • cookiesafe: control cookie persmissions from within the statusbar.
  • customizegoogle: enhance google search results by adding extra information and remove ads and spam.
  • download statusbar: nice download manager
  • tagsifter: tag your bookmarks. finally bookmarks become useable..
  • update scanner: monitors webpages for updates which still don’t provide rss feeds
  • mitm me: bypass the very annoying ssl errors introduced in firefox3 with a single click.
  • gtranslate: translates the selected text via google translate
  • keyconfig: nice key configuration. Personally I use it to configure the forward and back keys.
  • noscript: allows JavaScript, Java, Flash and other plugins to be executed only by web sites of your choice.
  • fasterfox: performance and network tweaks for firefox
  • unplug: download flash movies easily (for firefox3 there is no “official” but a “modded” version which just alters the version check).
  • add n edit cookies: cookie editor that allows you add and edit session and saved cookies
  • bugmenot: bypass annoying web registrations with the context menu (input from ).
  • refcontrol: control what gets sent as http referer on per-site basis.
  • tab mix plus: has a very rich (not to say bloated) feature set. Currently I use the multi row tab feature and the closed tabs icon (which is way better than the default one).
  • firebug: edit, debug, and monitor CSS, HTML, and JavaScript live
  • safecache: defends against cache-based tracking techniques but is currently only available for firefox2.
  • safehistory: defends against visited-link-based tracking techniques but is also only available for firefox2.
