Save Text to File is a Firefox add-on that allows you to save highlighted text to an external text file. This is one of those features you never realize how handy it will be until you start using it. I often like to save ‘bits of articles and other things I read to go back to it later. This makes saving that information in a new location all that much easier.
The extension, Status-4-Evar, will restore the status bar to how it looked before Firefox 4.0. Some people might like the more simplified interface of the browser, but others want to be able to see the status of things in the bottom of the browser all the time. If you find yourself in the second group, this add-on is perfect for you.
The BYTubeD add-on for Firefox will let you download a ton of videos from YouTube, all within a matter of minutes. All you need to do is collect the links for the videos you want to download and let this great extension do the rest of the work.
Work with a lot of tabs? Then you have probably seen the All Tabs menu (the menu at the right of the tabs bar) a whole lot. This bar allows you to manipulate tabs – but there isn’t too much you can do by default. One add-on that changes that is called All Tabs Helper. It gives you much more functionality to this heavily used Firefox feature.
I use Facebook a lot, both for work and for play – so if there is anything I can do to make my Facebook browsing experience better, I am all for it. That is where SocialFixer comes into play. This is a fantastic extension for Firefox that fixes tons of annoyances with Facebook. You have full control over which ones you use and which ones you do not, so let me dive a little deeper into some of the tweaks you can make.
Do you want to customize the Gmail interface to your liking and strip away the ads? The Firefox extension, Gmelius, will do that and much more. It is the sleekest Gmail related add-on for Firefox I have seen in a long time.
Need an update utility that will allow you to update your status for multiple networks at once? FireStatus does a good job at that. It is a nice looking Firefox add-on that lets you update Facebook, Twitter, FriendFeed, Delicious and Identi.ca all at once. That can save you a lot of time.
The QuickWiki extension for Firefox gives you the ability to quickly lookup a word in Wiktionary or Wikipedia without needing to open a new tab up to do so. I have been using this add-on for a while and I do have to say it does make it a little easier to look up words on these two wiki services. If you find yourself quoting either of these sources very often – then this extension is a must download.
Miss having the RSS icon up in the location bar within Firefox? You can customize your toolbars and add the button back – if you have not done so before, but you could also try out the add-on for Firefox, RSS Icon In Awesombar. This extension will add the RSS icon bar to the location bar, like it was before Firefox 4.
The Empty Cache Button add-on for Firefox will enable you to quickly empty your browser’s cache and reload the page you are on in a single click of the mouse. As I have mentioned in the past – I love it when a Firefox add-on works as advertised and this one does exactly that.
