Talk about Christmas coming early. I just found on Microsoft’s new plugin page for Windows Live Writer a plugin that gives me the ability to blog about anything I find in Firefox inside of the awesome Windows Live Writer publishing tool. The Blog This for Firefox add-on is the extension you need, if you wish to do the same, and here is how you get it.
If you use WordPress to run your website, you probably jump in and out of the administrator side of the blogging tool a lot. I know I do. So, with that said, finding a tool that makes jumping into the admin menus of WordPress is a real time saver for me. That is where the WordPress Admin Toolbar comes into our picture today. With a single click you can go to anywhere within your WordPress administration interface and not even break a sweat.
Working in front of a computer for most of your day can really take a toll on you. If you depend on being able to sit there at the desk and type all day long – then you might want to make sure you take care of yourself and prevent dangerous ailments like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. The StretchClock add-on for Firefox will remind you when it is time to get up and take a short break.
The Drag Button add-on for Firefox will give you more toolbar buttons to add into Firefox, giving you the ability to drag, minimize and more from the click of a button. Once installed, you can unleash these new customizing options by simple customizing your own toolbars from within Firefox.
With Christmas being right around the corner, have you gotten your wish list in order yet?
Now, I will be honest – it has been a while since I messed around with the wish list feature on Amazon because it was hard to find and point people towards. However, with the Add to Amazon Wish List Button add-on for Firefox, that task just got a lot easier.
Have a lot of tabs open, but only need to find those that meet a certain criteria? The Firefox add-on named Tab Filter / Tab Search will give you that ability. Once installed, this extension lets you only show tabs that match the results you want to see.
Some websites, like Hulu for example, give you the ability to dim everything in the background on a page so that you can focus on the video you are watching. What if you could do that on every website? That is what the add-on for Firefox, Turn Off the Lights, brings to the browser.
You know, from an add-on called, Flagfox – I do not really expect much. So it shows a country flag depicting the location of the current website’s server location. That is neat and all, but not really helping me become a more functional website browser. What you might not know though is there is more to this simple add-on that just flags.
Tired of having no way out when you run into a webpage that can not be found? TryAgain, an add-on for Firefox, will give you a few more routes to check when it comes to seeing if a website is really down or not.
This great extension for Firefox will keep trying to reach a webpage even if the server cannot be reached.
Mozilla is getting into the world of social link sharing. With F1, you can add the functionality of sharing a link on Twitter, Gmail or Facebook into the Firefox browser. This neat add-on has a lot of potential, and is simple enough for anybody to pick up and use.
