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 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?
Use the chat feature on Facebook? One thing that it really lacks is a way to keep a history of who you talked to and what was said. Thankfully though, this add-on – Facebook Chat History Manager – will give you a way to simply browse through your previous Facebook chats.
Sometimes we all go a little tab-happy when it comes to our Internet browsing ways. You might be browsing around, one lazy Friday afternoon, and before you know it – you have twenty open tabs and then decide, "hey, maybe I should get back to work!". Well, have no fear, because I can get all your tabs closed in one click or two.
File this add-on under awesome. The Places’ Tooltip add-on for Firefox adds more detailed information about the bookmarks and links you have saved to your browser.
When multiple tabs in your browser are not enough, try splitting your browsing area instead. Split Browser, an add-on for Firefox, divides up the context area of the browser in many ways. Want an over the top example?
That might be a little extreme, but it does help to point out that this extension will let you split your browser up however you see fit to do so.
Want to hide what it is you have been looking for? Not the perfect solution, but perfect for nit-picky peeps is the Clear Search add-on for Firefox.
What does this browser extension do? It does one job, and it does it really well. Once installed, it automatically clears the search bar after performing a search. So if you have a nosey roommate or family member, they won’t accidently see you have been searching for the top 10 horror villains of all time.
While this add-on for the browser isn’t enough to prevent somebody who is really nosey from going through your history, and doing a full scale investigation – it does serve the simple task or clearing out your search box after a search very well. You can pick up the Clear Search extension on the Firefox add-ons web site.
TinEye claims to be the world’s first reverse image search engine. Rather than typing in a phrase and looking for a picture, you type in a picture and get other pictures like it – or something like that. Thanks to the TinEye add-on for Firefox, you can get instant image searching done right from the browser.
Here is a little more about TinEye from it’s developers:
TinEye is the first image search engine on the web to use image identification technology rather than keywords, metadata or watermarks.
When you submit an image to be searched, TinEye creates a unique and compact digital signature or ‘fingerprint’ for it, then compares this fingerprint to every other image in our index to retrieve matches.
TinEye does not typically find similar images; it finds exact matches including those that have been cropped, edited or resized.
Once installed, you can right-click on any image, and select “Search Image on TinEye”. When you do, you’ll be taken to an TinEye web page, that will display your search results.
It might not be a tool for everybody, but I do find the idea of reverse image searching very interesting and fun to play with. You can learn more about it at TinEye.com.
Are you a big fan of Google’s custom search feature, which allows you to customize your own search engine to fit your needs? The Custom Google Search add-on for Firefox, in that case, is a perfect companion.
In a nutshell, this extension for Firefox allows you to create, use and mange your own Google Custom Engines from within the Firefox browser interface.
You can pick up the Custom Google Search add-on for Firefox on the Firefox Add-ons web site.
