Work with a lot of tabs? Then you have probably seen the All Tabs menu (the menu at the right of the tabs bar) a whole lot. This bar allows you to manipulate tabs – but there isn’t too much you can do by default. One add-on that changes that is called All Tabs Helper. It gives you much more functionality to this heavily used Firefox feature.

Is Firefox acting a little slow? There are several little tweaks and fixes you can do to speed the browser up or to change the behavior of the browser so things seem faster. One of these that many people don’t know about is the option to not load up tabs until they are selected.
When you load up a dozen or more tabs all at once, Firefox can slow down to a crawl. Now, you can either choose to stop overwhelming Firefox with too many tabs or you can grab this helpful add-on for Firefox that will only load up the tab you need at the time, with multiple tabs still available.
Just put it on your Bar Tab.
Looking to make drag and dropping a little more functional in Firefox? The Firefox add-on QuickDrag will let you load URLs, do web searches and more just by highlighting text, grabbing it and dragging it to the right location.
Here is what QuickDrag looks like in action, as well as more details on how you can use this great extension for Firefox to speed up your browsing.
Now, some might look at this add-on and say that is not much, however after you start using it, you really start to realize how much more functionality this adds – just be adding a few tweaks to the browser. For more help, you might also check out the author’s FAQ.
You can pick up the QuickDrag add-on via the Firefox Add-ons web site.
Want to tweak how Firefox’s default search options react to you in the browser? The SearchLoad Options extension should do the trick then.
Options include clearing the searchbar and resetting the search engine after each search. A time delay can be set in order to reuse search strings or search engines before changing the state of the searchbar.
Search results can be loaded into the active tab, a new tab, or a new background tab. An option allows new tabs to be created regardless of whether the current tab is blank. New tabs can also be created by using the Alt key.
