We all love using tabs in our browsers and Firefox was the first browser to really let you do more things with them. Sure other browsers have tried to duplicate but few can really do it as well as the Firefox community. Here are four of my favorite and popular tab extensions you can not live without.

Do you like to be alerted or updated when something new happens? No matter if it is with your favorite social network or even your email – I have a list of 5 of the most popular extensions in the Alerts & Updates category (taken from Mozilla’s official ranking). I hope you enjoy the list – and if there is another add-on you like more be sure to leave a link for it in the comments!

Want to clean up the mess that an extension leaves behind after it has been uninstalled? eCleaner is the add-on you need to download and install into Firefox. This add-on can be used to clear all those preferences left by extensions after uninstallation, all those garbage which some developers do not care on clearing themselves on their add-ons and which later or sooner will make Firefox to load slower.
People often run into problems when Firefox updates, because some of their favorite add-ons no longer work. Well, it isn’t exactly that they will not work. It is the fact that the add-on developer hasn’t updated the add-on to meet the compatibility of the newer version of Firefox. In this article I’ll see what I can do to help you out when it comes to getting them re-enabled.
I have mentioned Read it Later before. It is a great add-on for anybody that does a lot of browsing but has little time to read everything they want to. I use the service to save various articles or topics I would like to write about on my various blogs but that is only one out of a million ways you can use this great service and Firefox extension.
I have been using Firefox on my Droid X phone for a while now and love it. Sure, there are a few faults to it – but overall Mozilla has done a great job at developing a mobile phone browser, plain and simple. One issue I ran into early on though was I didn’t know where to get the special add-ons for the mobile version of the browser. Some add-ons might work in both the desktop and mobile versions of Firefox, but others do not.
So, where should you turn to get the Mobile Add-ons for your favorite browser?
Some of us do a lot of content sharing via Facebook. You like to share news, links and interesting stuff with your friends and family members via Facebook too, right? If so – you might want to check out the new LikeJournal add-on for Firefox. This add-on (plus website service) will create a searchable database of all the links you like via the Facebook like button.
Need a way to quickly do more with your mouse when browsing the web using Firefox? The MouseControl add-on is a nifty tool that allows you to switch, close, quick return, duplicate and zoom just by clicking on your mouse buttons.
Internote makes adding sticky note reminders to Firefox a fairly easy process. Need to note something about a website? Create a Internote and the next time you visit that website, the sticky note will return. The add-on is also highly customizable and has tons of features. It might be the most feature rich sticky note add-on I have seen for the Firefox browser.
