NoSquint allows you to adjust the text-only and full-page (both text and images) zoom levels as well as color settings both globally (for all sites) and per site. It is really great to use on those badly coded websites that give you an odd or tiny font that is almost impossible to read.
Right from your toolbar in Firefox, you can choose to go full screen or restore a window from any other state with Full Screen Plus. If you like to have your web browser at a certain size for certain tasks, this add-on is a big time saver. The user interface of the add-on gives you four small buttons, four larger buttons or one large button that switches between the two full screen states.
Need to customize how many tabs you see in your Firefox window? Custom Tab Width is a really neat add-on for Firefox that makes doing this task really easy. It lets you customize the minimum and maximum tab width. Once installed, you simply need to go into the options for the add-on itself and then set the min number for the minimum size in pixels and the max number as the maximum number of pixels.
The way you use your web browser is a very personalized experience. From the way you click links, to even the way you scroll down a web page, everybody has their own way of doing things. To add a few more page scrolling tweaks to the Firefox browser, give the Smooth Wheel add-on a shot.
Smooth Wheel adds several more configurable preferences to your mouse wheel’s performance in Firefox. Here is a little ‘bit more about the extension from the developer:
Why Resize and Reposition Firefox Automatically?
That says to keep the browser 1024 in width, 1000 pixels high and to move to to the desktop location of 640 pixels left and 10 pixels down. If you used:
That would set it up to be in the top left corner. Depending on your screen size those last two numbers are what you want to change to get the position right and the first two number would be your browser size. There is probably some mathematical way to figure out the right number for the position you want – but if your like me you just changed the numbers around till you got it in the position you need. What if you wanted the browser height to be all the way from the top of the screen to the bottom? In that case you could change the second number in resizeTo (in both examples that would be the 1000) to screen.availHeight.
Notice now that by copy and pasting this into your address bar and hitting enter will make the browser as tall as it can be, with the width of 1024 pixels and in the left side of the screen.
How do You Create the Resizing Bookmark?
In the memory of every great cooking show I have ever seen, let me take a page out of their book and give you a link to drag into your bookmark toolbar so you can see the effects of this simple desktop organizational hack:
Now I know somebody will bring up the fact that a number of extensions will do this same action too. This provides a way of simply adding the feature in without the need of another add-on.
Don’t you hate it when you have so many tabs open you can’t see what exactly is open? Well with the FishEyeTab extension for Firefox, you can kiss those days goodbye. This extension auto-expands your tabs when you hover over one with your mouse.
An alternative to scrolling when there are many open tabs, and they become too small to see. User can zoom tab labels by moving the mouse cursor over them. Fisheye zoom is activated only when tabs occupy the whole width of the window. Close button moved to right FF 1.0 – style.
This cool animation makes it quick and easy to see which tab is which. You also don’t sacrifice much tab toolbar space either.
Need to do a little on screen measuring? If you have Firefox then the MeasureIt extension should do the trick.
As you can see it delivers a brain dead simple way of seeing how big that area of your screen is. I could see this tool being really helpful for web developers or anybody else that works with graphics on the Internet.
