Here is an easy fix to an easy problem. Do you need a better way to reload that Web page you are looking at? You could go all the way up to the reload button – or you could install the Reload Tab On Double-Click extension for Firefox. The choice is yours!
I found this little jewel via Lifehacker:
The one Firefox 2 feature that hasn’t grown on me is tab scrolling – left and right arrow buttons that appear at either end of the tab bar when you’ve opened up too many tabs to view at once.
We all know that Firefox 2 is going to be packed full of a lot of goodies. How many? It is hard to tell the exact number, but I have found a Web site that goes through at least twelve of them.
Firefox 2.0, RC2 was recently made available to the general public. While there have been some rumbles about the “2.0″ moniker – with some saying the new feature set only warrants a “1.5.x” badging – there, are several new tools and features in this latest release.
If you use Google’s Feed Reader this is a Greasemonkey script that you need. This script adds a feed icon to the upper right corner of your browser window for one-click subscription to Google Reader.
My version of the script adds an overlayed check icon when you’re subscribed to at least one of the feeds that the site advertises via auto-discovery. This was made easy by a URL that Reader exports: http://www.google.com/reader/api/0/subscribed?s=feed/
So, does the Mozilla Firefox extension Web site suck? Well, I guess there is an argument for that. I wouldn’t be so harsh, but it could use some improvements. One big concern folks have is it is pretty hard to hunt down Firefox 2 compatible extensions. When not every extension author has updated – it is disappointing to see an extension you want to use and see it is for an older version only.
Well here is your fix, somebody has made a big list of all the extensions out there today that are compatible with Firefox 2.
I really like the new look for tabs in Firefox 2. It just feels a lot nicer than older versions have. Is there still room for improvement? Sure, but that is the job of extensions for now. The Aging Tabs Firefox extension shades your tabs different colors due to how long ago it was you last used them. I would still like to see a little more customization with this extension, but overall I think it is a nice pick.
Do you not wish you had quick and easy access to a few of the preferences inside of Firefox? I know from time to time, I would. The Quick Preference Button extension for Firefox gives you that ability in a small drop down menu from the toolbar.
When you mix a little CSS code with Firefox, you get a neat trick that no other browser out there can do. Well, even if they could I wouldn’t care because this is called Firefox Facts, not IE Facts! Anyways, check it out – learn how to do it yourself and be careful where you middle click!
Don’t be fooled by the name, this extension has nothing to do with Digg.com. It is though a great tool to actually make that “Go” button a little more useful!
Allows you to navigate to parent directories in a URL and climb through subdomains (e.g. go to http://example.com/ from http://sub.example.com/), all from a context menu on the Go button (and on the toolbar button provided by Go Up, if you have that extension installed).
