I love to see Firefox extensions that really add neat and cool features that I might have not thought of before. The MileWideBack extension makes the left side of your Firefox window a really big “go back” button. All you need to do is click on the left border of the window, and you are back to where you were before.

I like getting a hint on what I might be seeing when I click that next link. Sure, there are a couple of different thumbnail preview tools out there, but the Thumbnail Link Preview Browser Tool might be my favorite.
Daily when you are surfing the web, you find lot of links on your favorite search engines and web directories. Then you try some of these links by reading the title or description about the link. Here comes the role of Link Preview to help you find what you want in faster and cooler way.
This helpful tool is available as both a bookmarklet and a Greasemonkey script. To pick up either one of those, make sure you check out Thumbnail Link Preview’s Web site.
When it comes to elegant looking themes, none can beat the Glowy series. Think I am full of it? Just check out the screenshots and be amazed by the royalty of it all. After installing them, I feel like the rest of my computer’s applications are just servants to the king.
You should have the power to block any Web sites you want to block, right? The Internet browser is your window into the Online world. It should be your right to filter out what content you do not wish to see. Firefox may not come built in with too many content blocking features, but the BlockSite extension more than makes up for that.
Here is something you don’t get to do everyday. The folks at Mozilla are asking for you to name their mascot that will be used in Japan. Will you name him Frank? Maria? Sparky? The choice is up to you. He is pretty darn cute though, I must say.
Everybody loves Gmail, but some of us love it too much. Do you ever find youself switching between Gamil logins just to get all your E-mail checked? Moving the mouse around, logging in, logging out – it is all a lot of work. Why do all that work though, when there is an extension that will do all of that for you? Gmail Manager has come to your rescue!
You have not earned your Firefox “street credit” if you haven’t ever messed with your userChrome.css file. Come on, all the cool kids are doing it.
Edits to your Firefox profile’s userChrome.css file can make all sorts of fun and useful changes to the fox’s chrome, menus, dialogs and toolbars.
Are you searching for a way to quickly add appointments to your Google Calendar? Well if you are using Firefox then you are in luck. If you are using one of those other browsers, then you are beyond saving.
The extension is very simple. It adds a new shortcut (CTRL + ; [semi-colon]) to your browser window that launches a simple text dialog. In the text box you can enter whatever you would in the Google Calendar Quick Add feature and if you hit ENTER it will create the event for you in your default calendar. Remember, you must be logged in for it to work, if not, I’ll remind you anyways. The icing on the cake, is that it will find any Google Calendar window that’s opened and reload it for you so you can see your new appointment.
The Google Calendar Quick Add Firefox Extension is the thing you need to pick up to get the job done.
Who will Mozilla turn to for help on the usability front? Radiant Core beat out two others for the project which will focus on updating four specific areas of the browser: the search bar, icons, the tab strip and dialog buttons.
You have to enjoy a Firefox extension when the name pretty much sums up what it is all about. The ilovevideoz Toolbar is one of those extensions. This tool is one that will help you keep up to date with all the different video sharing Web sites and make sure you have seen all the best content on each.
