Some of the features include:

  • Simple & Multi tab
  • Auto save notes
  • Check spelling
  • Changeable font size
  • Changeable background color
  • Easy search tool
  • Various keyboard shortcuts

Another nice feature is that it saves your notes in the bookmark files, so your notes will always be in sync, if you have installed one of the bookmark syncing add-ons like Xmarks or Mozilla Weave. If you are in need of a handy note taking application from within Firefox, give QuickFox Notes a shot.
