I am a big fan of HootSuite, it is a great tool to kind of aggregate all your social networking needs. The HootBar extension for Firefox will let you post messages to Twitter and other social networks right from the Firefox address bar. Additional features include more customization options and allows you to post to all the social networks that HootSuite supports: Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, Foursquare, WordPress and more.
Tired of seeing YouTube blocked? In some countries – I am told – YouTube videos are totally blocked. That is not exactly fair, is it? Thankfully though, if you find yourself in one of these places – you have ProxTube to help save the day. This add-on will unblock YouTube videos.
Want to clean up the mess that an extension leaves behind after it has been uninstalled? eCleaner is the add-on you need to download and install into Firefox. This add-on can be used to clear all those preferences left by extensions after uninstallation, all those garbage which some developers do not care on clearing themselves on their add-ons and which later or sooner will make Firefox to load slower.
Tired of squinting at the screen when you see a picture? Sure, with most thumbnails you could click them to go see the picture at a better resolution. What if though, I could save you that step? Thumbnail Zoom Plus is a Firefox plug-in which shows a full-size image popup when you hover over a thumbnail or image link.
Have you ever thought that using Firefox would be more fun if it had achievements? You know, the type of rewards you get when playing a game – such as “dead eye” when getting your one hundredth headshot in a first person shooter. Cheevos for Firefox will add such a system to the browser.
Need a way to generate a temporary email address? These can come in handy if you need to provide your email address to sign up for something, but you don’t want them to send you tons of spam. The extension, Less Spam Please, will generate a disposable, reusable and anonymous real mail address when you need it.
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.
