Need to stay up to date with the latest and greatest information? Thankfully Firefox has a lot of great add-ons that can help you stay on top of everything from email to coupons. I have been working hard over the past few weeks to compile a list of 24 of the best alert add-ons I have reviewed on Firefox Facts over the years and I really hope you enjoy it and share it around with others.

Can’t you wait a few more minutes to see if anything has been updated on Facebook, Twitter or Google +? Thankfully, for Firefox users, there is a really nice add-on that will check into this for you. Tab Badge will give you uniform notifications of new content in the Firefox tab bar.
Tired of seeing Google+ notifications on other Google applications? This simple user script will do the trick. The Google+ Notifications Blocker user script is the script you want to install to get rid of any Google+ notifications in the upper right hand corner of other Google services, like Gmail – as one example.
It has been a long time since I spend a lot of quality time with Digg.com, but I know a lot of you might be excited to see they released a new toolbar for Firefox 3. You can divide things into two major features, the new notifications and the toolbar itself.
Here are Digg’s official descriptions of these two new key features:
Notifications: No matter where you are on the web, you can discover popular Digg stories and stay up to date on what your friends are Digging, submitting and commenting. These notifications are fully customizable. Within your preferences you can track different categories and media types, and turn notifications on or off.
Digg Toolbar: Displays Digg counts & comments as you browse around the web. You can also Digg and submit stories directly from the toolbar, which is collapsible to save space. Note that the toolbar respects user privacy by passing only hashed URLs to Digg to check if they’ve already been submitted.
Overall I’d say it was a lot more unique than I was expecting, so if you spend a lot of your day going back and forth on Digg, this toolbar is for you. You can download the new add-on on Digg.com.
