Yet another Firefox memory leak fixer has been made public, but you have to do a little editing under the hood to get it to work. I tried it out myself, and I have to say it did bring down my memory use. In fact, it cut my Firefox memory usage down by 25 percent or so. If you don’t mind messing with Firefox’s “about:config” settings, then give this a shot.
Ever wanted to know what was under those search result links in Google? With Cooliris, all you need to do is hover your mouse over the link and you get a preview of where it leads. This Firefox extension also works with Google image searches as well. Think of this as a sneak peek before you click.
There is no way to open an image or graphic in a new tab via Firefox. Why do you think this is? A conspiracy against image browsing? No, probably not. Now there is an extension to put your mind to rest. The Open Image In New Tab extension does just that, it opens up any image in a new tab.
Want to open up a new tab in Firefox? Well, all you have to do is double click on the tab bar to do so. Don’t want to mess around with your mouse? If that is the case, then hit the Ctrl key plus T key on the keyboard. Want another solution? Go up to File, then select “New Tab”. As you can see there are multiple ways of getting the same thing done. All you have to do is pick your favorite!
Right now there are not many options when it comes to opening Web sites in Firefox. The OpenBox Firefox extension gives you a few more options when opening up a new Web site. You can choose to open it in the current tab, a new tab or a new window.
I often find myself surfing from Web site to Web site looking for something to do. If you have found yourself in this place more than once, than give the Xultris Firefox extension a shot. When clicked, it launches you into an adictive game of Tetris. This is the ultimate answer to time killing.
I have been a big fan of digg.com for a long time, so I was happy to see this extension. The diggbar Toolbar extension for Firefox gives you a new way to navigate through digg’s interface. You can search the entire Web site. You can submit a story with one click. It also adds a few RSS feeds for the top digg stories. If you are a fan of digg, then you must “dig” this extension.
The Grocery List Generator Firefox extension helps you with making a list of things you need to get from the store. This just seems a little strange to me. Maybe I am a little “old school” but then again, the beauty of Firefox is there is an extension for everybody.
This extension does a good job at creating an organized list of things you might need to make your grocery shopping as easy as possible. Give me an extension that will watch my undies, then we will talk.
Sometimes we want to browse a little bigger. Maybe the Web page looks better that way. Maybe you just like to think big. No matter what the reason is, this Full Screen Firefox extension should get the job done.
InfoLister is an extension for Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla Thunderbird and Nvu that gathers various information (such as themes, extensions and plugins) about Firefox/Thunderbird and saves it to a file. Now where the interesting part comes in, is the ability to upload that list as an XML file so you can share what extensions you are using with your friends Online.
Thanks goes to Douglas for this very interesting tip. Here is how you can find out a little more about using the output of InfoLister to fit your needs:
