My Firefox Extensions
« on: June 30, 2007, 01:42:52 AM »
Sometimes we discuss here some of the Firefox (Flock) extensions. But we rarely post a full list of them. I think extensions give some clue what about our interests, how we see the web, how do we surf, how do we think about security, speed, and so on.

So, here is mine (I'll try to keep this post updated) and I'll ask the others who participate in this thread to do the same. I think links will be welcome  8) You can make this list with MR Tech Local Install features.

With NoScript, you don't need FlashBlock as it incorporates a flash blocker.

httpOnly - adds httpOnly cookie support to firefox.
I'll give them a try...

Mozilla Archive Format - Save complete pages in a single file (for off-line reference/viewing).
Not compatible with Firefox 2.0.0.4

Download Manager Tweak - other/limited options for the firefox download function.
FlashGot do it...

OpenBook - Allows for customization of the Add Bookmarks dialogue.
The Bookmark Backup and Bookmark Duplicate Detector do it.

QuickRestart - Adds a Restart Firefox to the Tools menu.
ShowImage - Adds context menu entry to reload images that failed to show on the page.
These are already present, no need for an extra extension, at least for me.

Translate 0.6.0.8 - another option to the translator extension - for pages and selected text.
Not compatible with newer Firefox... I know there is a trick (workaround), but...

View Cookies - View cookies of the current web page.
CookieSafe does it...

Mozilla Archive Format works for me and I don't think I have tweaked the installation file to get it to work with 2.0.0.4.

I think I did use the tweak on the installation file to get Translate 0.6.0.8, it is too useful a tool to lose.

I've looked here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/212
It's said: Works with: Firefox 1.5 – 1.5.0

Hey, other people, won't you participate in this thread?  :'( :'(

It passes validation when I do a check for updates, etc. download the xpi file and use 7zip to open the file it is just an archive file. Extract the install.rdf file with a text editor and you will find the minVersion and maxVersion which shows it supports 1.7 - 1.8, I must have changed the maxVersion>2.* or 2.1 say.

Quote from: From original install.rdf
      <Description>
        <em:id>{86c18b42-e466-45a9-ae7a-9b95ba6f5640}</em:id>
        <em:minVersion>1.7</em:minVersion>
        <em:maxVersion>1.8</em:maxVersion>
 

Save the install.rdf file and put it back in the archive (OK the replace existing file, etc) save the .xpi file and your good to go.

The usual warning don't do this if you are scared of the consequences, etc. etc.

I know it will give some work... but can't you find the links?
Googling each one is almost impossible to get the extension page and then learn about it... :'(

Well people can use the Firefox, Tools, Add-ons, at the bottom of the window is a link to Get Extensions. Searching here wouldn't be much of a problem, I'm also a believer if something is worth having it is worth a little effort to find it. That is I feel better than one person doing all the donkey work.

Or look in https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/

Hi Tech,

Then you only need one extension, that is search with http://searchwith.mozdev.org/
What to do for the other extensions - highlight them and then search with "search with" to find the others.
The mozdev.org site also has a large collection of add-ons/extensions, also those temporarily in the sandbox.

Mind this, it is advisable to scan your extensions before downloading them, and download them preferably from the https site so you know you get the real mac coy.
Then some extensions may interfere with other extensions. Some extensions have known memory leaks,
error console console2 is better than the default error console that comes with FF or Flock, locationbar2 is better than the default address bar that comes with FF or Flock. Why the developers did not gave up their inferior versions is beyond me. Also why NoScript for security reasons was not brought in by default, but then as you come to think of it; commercialists rather incorporate Stumble upon and Alexa's as default then NoScript or Stealther. Those that earn from ad-crap vote those extensions out that hinder them too much in getting money for your clickstream, like an extension like RDR that make your browser definitely safer, see: http://redirectremover.mozdev.org/
Every security aware user of this forum knows the insecurity of certain things in the browser, like: redirects, certain tracking third party cookies, malicious script vectors, silent downloads etc. But more secure browsers has not reached the big masses yet.

Hi Dan,

The Rolling Stones sing about this as "never be your beast of burden", when you do the hard work for others.
And a donkey is a beast of burden, isn't it?
