Do 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.

Right from your toolbar in Firefox, you can choose to go full screen or restore a window from any other state with Full Screen Plus. If you like to have your web browser at a certain size for certain tasks, this add-on is a big time saver. The user interface of the add-on gives you four small buttons, four larger buttons or one large button that switches between the two full screen states.
Looking for the best way to keep an eye on the skies this Thanksgiving weekend? Look no further than the AniWeather add-on for Firefox.

If 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.
Now 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.
The folks over at tlbox, one of my new favorite Web design and development resources released an extension that allows you to get all the goodness from their Web site in a simple extension.
Here is what I had to say about them a few weeks back on the Lunarpages Lunartics Web site:
Don’t you hate it when your looking how to do that one little thing on your Web site, but just can not figure out how to get it done? I’ve got a neat resource that will help you keep track of some of the best resources out there and keep all of your favorites at your fingertips. The Web site tlbox.com has a slew of good programing and design tools to help you out.
Yet another great tool for anybody to have in their web development tool belt.
Finding yourself short on words when it comes to describing that really cool Web page you just found via keywords?
Now usually one or two might do you, as far as keywords go. Every so often though, you just can’t think of any good ones to use. That is where the KGen extension for Firefox comes in.
KGen (Keyword Generator) is an extension that allows you to see what keywords are strong on visited web page. Than, you can retrieve them for social sharing (tag filling) or webmastering/SEO.
Messy status bars make for bad browsing. Ok, maybe that is not true. They do make for a temperamental and somewhat anal Firefox guru though. Mike wants to know if there is a better way to organize the status bar in Firefox.
For some reason I don’t like to have a lot on my taskbar. I think it would be really neat if someone would develop a Firefox plugin to read data from the mlb gameday servers and popup a summary window similar to what the Cingular minuteminder plugin does. The ideal plugin would effectively minimize the gameday window into a summary bar similar to the minuteminder and foxytunes plugins, and it would open the gameday window in a popup on mouseover just like minuteminder.
I don’t think there are any extensions out there smart enough to know, “Ok it is Friday, time to show this extension” but I do have one for you that will help you organize your status bar woes. Check out the rightfully named Organize Status Bar extension.
It should help you at least gain some control over your messy status bar in your favorite browser.
Bonus! Here is another solution! StatusBars
Have you heard about Wikiseek? If you read any of the big popular A-list blogs you might think it is the second coming, but I wouldn’t say that just yet. It is nice though. They have also released a Firefox extension that allows you to slip their search into Wikipedia.
If you use Firefox you can install the Wikiseek Search Extension to add Wikiseek to the search form inside all Wikipedia pages. Just click the install link below and follow the instructions. Once you restart Firefox you will see a Wikiseek button in the Wikipedia search form.
Pick it up and let me know what you think.
The President Bush Countdown Firefox extension counts down the number of days left till we get a new president.
Now I know you are going to say this sounds like an anti-republican Firefox extension, and the last thing I want to do is alienate anybody who checks out the Firefox Facts on a daily basis. So instead of leaning to one side or the other, I am going to give both sides of the political fence a reason they could and should use this Firefox extension.
For those who like the current president, this gives you an idea of how much more time you have to spend with this commander and chief. For those who might not like him so much, well – you only have so many days left. You see – everybody wins and nobody has to get mad.
