Need to disable some Firefox Add-ons? Personally speaking, I would consider add-ons to be themes, plugins and extensions you add to Firefox. If you need to troubleshoot a problem with the browser, disabling the Firefox add-ons you have added can sometimes be the quickest way to find the problem.

Notice something acting a little weird with Firefox? Might be about time you did a plugin check. Depending on what version of Firefox and the various plugins you are running, you could run into problems. Thankfully though, Mozilla gives us access to a great resource to use to make sure you are using the latest and greatest versions of all the plugins you have in your browser.
Want to create your own Firefox search plugin? The steps on how to do this used to be a lot easier back in the early days of Firefox, but now with the OpenSearch protocol in all modern browsers – the steps are a little more difficult. Have no fear though, because I have found a resource that will make creating your own Firefox search plugin easy again and it takes only a few simple steps.
After yesterday’s news about the fake Firefox update that is out there in the wild, I thought it might be a good time to go over how you can get your plugins updated. Thankfully, Mozilla has made this really simple with the Plugin Check part of their website.
How would you like to be able to use PayPal anywhere and everywhere, even where it is not accepted? At this point the PayPal people hope you are excited because that is what they would like to offer to you via a new Firefox plugin.
Once you get it up and running, a window should come up when you visit a web site asking for your credit card information. With this new Firefox extension, you now have the choice to pay via a card that PayPal creates for you or you can generate a card manually through a drop down menu.
Some of the other features include:
To pickup the new Firefox PayPal Plug-in, you must login to your PayPal account, and then there should be a link to click on your left to “Use PayPal even where it is not accepted”. Hopefully in the future, they will put this in an easier place to access. All in all though, great idea if you are a heavy PayPal user.
I’m back to using FireShot. This extension that allows you to take screenshots of what is inside your browser window enticed me to no end when it first came out – but with it’s lack of features I had to let it go. Here is a little more about the extension just in case you missed it the first time around…
What is FireShot and Why Do I Need It?
FireShot is a Firefox extension that creates screenshots of web pages. Unlike other extensions, this plugin provides a set of editing and annotation tools, which let users quickly modify captures and insert text and graphical annotations. Such functionality will be especially useful for web designers, testers and content reviewers.
Some of these newest features include:
- Screenshot can be uploaded to server for resizing, commenting and blogging.
- Added Undo/Redo feature
- Added “Resume editing” option
- Line width can be specified
- Improved page extents detection mechanism (now supports GMail, E-Bay and other frame-based sites)
- Improved memory management routines and error handling messages.
- Added MS Outlook support
- Working folder can be set up and periodically erased.
As you can see there is even more to love here. More now than ever before! Give the FireShot extension another shot. It is the perfect compainion for anybody who works with screen grabs a lot.
Want to reach out and touch somebody via your browser?
FoxFon, a lightweight and elegant phone plugin, makes Firefox a speaking friend in your online life. With FoxFon you can call your friends in a way similar to the SkypeOut service.
The major FoxFon advantage is that it allows you to make calls straight from web browser, without having to launch additional programs.
