Organize Your Tools Menu

After installing a dozen or so extensions, you menus inside of Firefox might start to look a little cluttered. How can you fix this problem? You can either start getting rid of extensions, or you can add one more. Personally I love all my extensions equally – so I am going to pick the second choice and get the Tools Menu Organizer. This will at least help you get the tools menu under control.

Cache View

Having a problem viewing a Web page that is not there anymore? Maybe it got popular and now it is a little hard to pull it up. Well, that is why cache was created – you silly little person. Now with the extension Cache View you can make good use out of it.

Displays Google’s Cache, Coral’s Cache, Wayback Machine’s Cache, Dot Cache, Tech Guru’s Cache, and Cachebin’s cache of the current tab open via right-click or Tools menu. This was made so that if the site is down in any way, especially the Digg effect and Slashdot effect, you can hopefully view it.

Free Extention Writer’s Guide

I am always interested in reading new guides and reviews on how folks can make their own extensions. I guess one of these days I might even try it out myself. My only time is I would have to find the time in the day to do it. The folks over at Extend Firefox have put together a great guide that is worth checking out. If I ever was to write an extension, this is the guide that would help me get it done.

Due to the recent surge in the number of Firefox users around the world, the interest in developing well-written extensions has become a goal of many individuals.

The goal of this tutorial is to provide the reader with the information and resources to write feature-filled, Mozilla-compliant, extensions.

I like some of the television the British Broadcasting Company puts out there but I have not really gotten myself in a trend of checking out their Web site that often. When I do remember to do it though, I have seen that the BBC is an interesting source for news and information from the other side of the pond. To help my remember how useful it can be, I downloaded and installed the BBC bar.

Unhide Your Menu Bar

Some Web sites out there have the bad habit of hiding your menubar when you click on a link. It might be because it is an image popping up or maybe they are trying to disable your ability to copy what is there. Well, to get around this little problem all you need is one extension. The Unhide Menubar extension adds a right-click menu entry for un-hiding the menu and toolbars in windows where they have been hidden by javascript.

Firefox, the OS?

Could Firefox give Windows a run for it’s money? Well it might seem like an odd idea – but after reading through this post I found over at Lockergnome, maybe it isn’t so odd after all?

So, after searching high and low, trying anything and everything that promised it would work the way I wanted it to, and not the way it forced it to, I stopped at LiteStep. I enjoyed it, but it just was hard to navigate and personalize the way I wanted. So I made Firefox my shell. It’s the best thing I ever did.
