I am not really that big of a sports fan. If you are not wearing wrestling tights or boxing gloves, you are not going to get my attention. I shouldn’t let me hate for other sports stop me though from spreading the word about a cool sports-related extension I found though.
One of the best tools I have found thus far for backing up your settings and profile in Firefox is MozBackup. I have tried them all, and this freeware program is the one I keep coming back to.
MozBackup is a simple utility for creating backups of Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, Mozilla Suite and Netscape profiles.
It seems like some other backup programs for Firefox miss something, or don’t restore just right. MozBackup does just about everything right, and hasn’t done me wrong yet.
One of the few annoyances I have found with Firefox 2.0 is there was no way for me to add Rojo in as my feed reader of choice. By default, if you don’t use one of the recommended ones, you are out of luck for right now. I decided to look around to see if I could find a solution though.
Gabbly is a very cool chat service. What is so cool about it? It allows you to instantly connect with any number of people viewing a single Web site. Any service like this must have a Firefox extension that is equally as great, right?
Finally the extension we have all been waiting for! Now we can have MC Hammer functionality built right into our favorite browser.
Adds ‘STOP! Hammer Time..’ functionality to FireFox – Simply go to “view -> toolbars -> customise” and swap your stop button for the hammertime button!
Remember learning how to convert one form of measurement to another in school? I never really liked those few weeks in class, and now I feel vindicated that I didn’t learn a thing. You know why? Well, I have found a Firefox extension that will do all the hard work for me.

Yes, even I have a profile on MySpace! The question is who doesn’t these days? If you want to be able to have a little more usability built into Firefox while browsing the MySpace Web site, this is the extension made for you.
ToolbarMS is a Firefox toolbar created to provide a quick navigation menuing system for the MySpace website. It not only provides quick links to the most popular features of MySpace but also has a dynamic menuing system that can expand and adapt as MySpace changes.
The ability to send something quickly to a friend of family member is something a lot of us need to have. In the time that it takes to open up or E-mail client, load the information in and send it, we might forget what got us so excited in the first place. That is where the E-mail This Firefox extension comes into play.
In an article I mostly skimmed over because it was mostly filled with Microsoft pats on the back, I did run across an intresting nugget of information.
Bill Gates is one of the people with Firefox on his computer, so I asked him for his opinion.
“I played around with it a bit, but it’s just another browser, and IE [Microsoft's Internet Explorer] is better,” Mr Gates told me, and challenged my assertion that Firefox’s ‘market share’ is growing rapidly.
“So much software gets downloaded all the time, but do people actually use it?” he argued.
Yes, Mr. Gates people do actually use it.
