Learn Firefox – A Visual Guide to the Browser

Learn FirefoxOver at CyberNet News I recently noticed they added a new Firefox section to the mix. Learn Firefox is what it is called and I have to say it has an impressive list of resources, help and videos to get you going with the Mozilla browser.

You can scroll down the list to see what they have covered thus far – and I am sure they’d be open to suggestions if you have any to share. I’ve been a big fan of what Ryan has been able to do with the CyberNet News Web site – so it is no surprise to see him behind this excellent resource. Funny enough I started reading CyberNet News after it got banned from digg many moons ago.

Go check out Learn Firefox and let them know that Firefox Facts sent you there.

DownloadHelper – Download Flash Videos

VideoDownloaderSo this might not be the first tool, the only tool, or the best tool – but it is another tool when it comes to saving video from the Web. Out of all the video downloading tools I have seen this one might have the best interface of them all.

As you can see, it gives you a button on your toolbar to click on and get direct access to downloading. This is something I have wanted to see for a long time. It also works with YouTube, MySpace, Google videos, DailyMotion, Porkolt, iFilm and others.

Stop Autoplay

I really hate when music or movies start up on a Web site when I did not ask them to. It is rude for my browser to think I want to listen to or watch this stuff without asking first. Well, I have a Firefox extension that will teach your browser some manners.

The Stop Autoplay extension for Firefox disable the autoplay of the embedded music and movie (mp3, wma, wmv, avi, mpg, and more). Are you locked out of hearing or seeing it then? No! The users can press the play button of the controller to play it. Now this is the way the Web was suppose to be.

DownloadHelper

The Web is a fabulous thing. You can gather a number of images, sounds and videos in a matter of seconds. The only problem is that there is no quick and easy way of getting this done. Saving a number of galleries is always a pain in the rear. Well, that was the case till I found the DownloadHelper Firefox extension.

Movie Toolbar for Firefox

Are you big enough fan of the movies that you need a dedicated toolbar for Firefox? If so, look no further than the Movie Toolbar extension. The developer of this extension says that it is, “the extension for movie buffs”. After you install it, you automatically get movie news, reviews, and box office stats directly in your browser. Also it includes a search box that lets you easily search for movie information from different movie Web sites.

UnPlug – Video Download Tool

unplug.jpgThe VideoDownloader Firefox extension has been getting a lot of buzz lately, so I thought I would look at an alternative way of downloading media content via your favorite Web site. The UnPlug Firefox extension scans web pages and tells you where things like media players and other embedded objects are getting their data from, and displays it as a simple hyperlink.

Video Downloader

I’ve been playing with a new Firefox extension over the weekend that allows you to download those embedded movies that you see on Web sites. The extension is called, Video Downloader. The only catch I can find is that it has to be one of the video services they support. The good news is they support about two dozen (including MySpace, Google Video, YouTube, iFilm and more). Well worth the download if you find yourself wanting to save a lot of media from the Web.

Firefox Flicks

These movies might not help you use Firefox any better, but some of them are pretty fun to watch. The project is to “create a 30-second ad, in any style (live action or animated,) that brings Firefox to life for the millions of Web users who have yet to discover Firefox and the better Web experience it delivers.”

My suggestion for you? Go watch “Wheee!”, it is my favorite so far.
