Digg This! Firefox Extension

Due to how popular Digg is, you would think there would be more Firefox extensions related to it. I just have not seen too many become too popular. The Digg This! Firefox extension hopes to change all that.

The Digg This! toolbar adds two buttons to your main Firefox toolbar and one menu. With the toolbar buttons you can quickly goto to Digg or Digg the page you are viewing. The menu allows you to goto your Digg profile or any of the top Digg categories.

If you do a lot of digging, then this extension is right for you.

Visit Planet Mir

planet_mir-4.jpgIt has been a while since I changed my Firefox theme. I have been using Mostly Crystal most of the time these days, but I thought I would look around and see if I could find a different one I liked. That is when I decided to take a trip to Planet Mir and I do have to say I like what I see. This theme is different and cute. A real clean interface, and with time it might be one of the number one choices out there.

Greased Lightbox

As far as viewing graphics goes, Lightbox development has gone a long way for making it look more professional and pretty. What if you could add that to a Web site that didn’t provide it in the first place? To do that, you will need the Greased Lightbox Greasemonkey user script.

Greased Lightbox is a Greasemonkey/Creammonkey/Opera user script designed to enhance browsing on websites that link to images such as Google Image Search, Flickr, Wikipedia, Facebook, MySpace, and deviantART.

This script adds a nice interface to any graphics you might be browsing. I have been using a lightbox script for WordPress on SB1Online.com for some time now and I just love it. Adding that functionality to a Web site that doesn’t have it is even cooler.

To use this script you must have Greasemonkey for Firefox installed.

Due to the popularity of Greasemonkey within the Web and myself lately, I have decided to give it a little more coverage here on the Firefox Facts Web site. Along with themes, tips, extensions and links, Greasemonkey deserves a spot here because it does one thing. It makes Firefox better. So watch out for the newest Greasemonkey posts, and if you have any scripts to suggest just send them in to me.

Spyware Poses as Firefox Extension

Well this is an interesting piece of news for the day. This is one of those things that you thought were bound to happen, but it doesn’t mean you have to be happy about it.

Virus writers have created a spyware package that poses as an extension to the Firefox web browser. FormSpy, which poses as the legitimate NumberedLinks 0.9 extension, is programmed to steal confidential information from compromised machines including passwords, credit card numbers, and ebanking login details. The malware is also capable of sniffing passwords from ICQ, FTP, and email traffic before sending this data to a hacker-controlled website.
