Highlight Everything!

The HighlightAll extension for Firefox is a very useful tool for searching inside of one Web page for content. All you have to do to make this sucker work is highlight the word you want to find once. After that, the extension does all the heavy lifting and all occurrences of that word will automatically get highlighted.

No right-clicking. No menus. Just select the word with your mouse and you are on your way. This simple extension goes a long way for helping folks find a certain topic in large areas of text. With a white background and black text, my eyes sometimes might miss a word I am scanning for. Not anymore!

Quicker Searching From Firefox

Now having the search box up in the right hand corner of your screen is pretty handy. What if you do not want the wasted space though?

I mean, you could conduct all you searching via the address bar and just get rid of the search bar altogether is you wanted to. Now how can you get this done yourself? Well – over at VertebrateSilence.com, Vili has written a guide on help you do just that.

Firefox quick searches (also known as smart keywords) basically allow you to use the address bar of your browser to search the Internet. There are a few quick searches in your browser as a default: typing in dict vanilla should for example give you the definition of vanilla as found in dictionary.com.

Need a few more ways to minimize your toolbar space?

The more of these quick minimizing the toolbar space tips that I find, the smaller Firefox seems to become for me. Having a browser that molds itself to your ever desire though is one of the reasons why Firefox is gaining so much popularity.

Search to Tab

Going into the “should have been in there by default” pile of extensions I have grown to enjoy since Firefox 2 came out, we have searchOnTab. This simple and small extension allows you to select that new searches always appear in a new tab via the browser.

It is a pain in the neck to have to open a new tab before I start a new search (if I do not want to have my current tab changed or surfed away from). I just have to believe though that there must be an easier way to do this. Has anybody else been able to find an about:config hack to get it done?

If not – then at least we have this extension to get the job done.

Find Toolbar Tweaks

One of my favorite features inside of Firefox is the find toolbar. Just by hitting Ctrl and F at the same time unlocks an ability to find anything one a Web page no matter where it might try to hide. Sure, other browsers have done the find bar before, but none are as good in my opinion.
