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.

The Back to Close add-on for Firefox adds a simple ergonomic feature to Firefox I am sure a lot of people will enjoy. When you are browsing via the browser or via a tab, if there is no history to go “back” to via the back button – it displays a “close” button instead.
This simple change adds functionality back to the toolbar. The extension also works with mouse gestures and and by configuring the back button on your mouse (if you have one) to the Alt + Left Arrow keyboard combination. Users can also decide whether to show the toolbar icon via the options button in the add-on manager.
Here is something we probably do not give much thought to every single day. How can we make browsing better for the disabled? Well, thanks to a Firefox Facts reader I have found a great resource for making Firefox a little more accessible to those folks.
The Access Firefox Project was created to showcase some of the accessibility tools and features that are available for the free Firefox Web Browser, and to provide Firefox accessibility information and resources. Firefox has a great number of built in accessibility options and there are many free add-ons that greatly enhance the Firefox user’s experience.
