More Tools Menu in Firefox

After you have installed a dozen or two extensions, your menu buttons can get a little out of hand. Everything wants to add a command or link in the browser to help you use it better. Every extension leads to more choices in the menu. How can you tame this down? You need to pick up the More Tools Menu Firefox extension.

When it comes to browsing images on the Web, there are not a lot of extra features or tools at your fingertips. Now I do not want a full image editor, I would just like to get a closer look at some of the images on the Web. That is where the Image Zoom Firefox extension comes into play. I bet you can guess from the name what tool it adds to Firefox.

Firefox’s 9 Month Outlook

I read a very interesting outlook on where Firefox is heading in the near future this morning. Now the regular user might not care too much, they just want it to work. It is neat to look ahead though for those of us who like to see what the future might hold.

I heard a few questions yesterday about the future of Firefox and its product goals, differentiating factors, and its positioning against Microsoft and its Internet Explorer browser. I’ve been following the Firefox process intermittently so I’ll outline some of what I know in an attempt to spark community involvement and feedback on behalf of Mozilla and the Firefox team.

Save Granny, Get Firefox!

This has to be one of the most unique ways to spread Firefox that I have seen thus far. Save Granny is run by a group of Stanford students who have been working with the Mozilla Foundation to help spread Firefox. I think this would be a great and humorous Web site to get folks who don’t know about Firefox started with the browser.

Installing Extensions Delay in Firefox

Now I would not say it is the biggest pain I go through, it is a little annoying though that I have to wait through the “countdown” before I can install an extension in Firefox. You know, that whole 4 seconds or so you have to wait before the “Install Now” shows up. Well, here is a fix for all the folks who don’t like to waste the time waiting.

MR Tech Disable XPI Install Delay extension will eliminate that waiting period and allow you to click “Install Now” immediately. Just install the extension and save yourself some time. How much time will you save by getting rid of the 5-second delay? Let’s put it into perspective.
