Universal Print

Universal Print ReviewPrint all the tabs!

The Firefox extension, Universal Print, provides Firefox with four printing modes: print this tab, print all tabs, print select tabs or print preview.  These are definitely options I wish I had with the default Firefox installation. It is nice to know I can now print multiple tabs without having to jump to each one to start the process over again, and again, and again.

Adblock Plus

AdBlock PlusDo you find online advertisements annoying? If you are using Firefox – you can easily block them by using the Firefox add-on, Adblock Plus.  Now, I’d rather you not use it here because this is how I earn extra money to survive – and I know none of you want to see me on the street – right?  Just kidding.  You can use it if you want to – because it takes care of your tracking and annoying banner needs.

Copy Your URLs in Every Open Tab

Copy All URLsIf you are looking for an extension to copy all the URLs in the open tabs you have in Firefox, there is only one choice you have. Copy All URLs does the job and it does it well.

After installing – all you need to do is right click on any web site, then pick  Copy All URLs from the menu.  From there you can copy all the URLs for the open tabs, or paste them.  Simple enough, right?

After copying the URLs into any text area or document of your choice they will come out as URL, then title, URL, then title, URL.. well you get the idea.  This extension could come in really handy if you were wanting to send somebody a list of links or wanted a good way to start a super list on your own blog of some of your favorite web sites.

Be sure to pick it up over at the Mozilla Addons site, and let me know if you find any other copy and pasting tools you enjoy.

WordPress Installing via Firefox Extension

One Click Installer for WordPressNow I love WordPress, and I use it for nearly all of my various Web projects. I agree with the mass majority that installing WordPress plugins and themes can sometimes be a pain. Sure it isn’t rocket science, but it could be a little easier.

The OneClick Installer for WordPress extension for Firefox hopes to change that for me. A very unique idea indeed – this extension promises to give you that “one click” install process for any WordPress theme or plugin out there.

This makes the job of customizing your WordPress install just a little easier for folks that don’t want to dive into the HTML editors and FTP clients to get things done. To learn more about it, you can check out the author’s post on it – or check it out for yourself at the Mozilla addons web site.
