Top Firefox Addons That You Probably Use

Discover the most popular and useful Firefox addons that are widely used by millions of users. Enhance your browsing experience with these top-rated addons for security, productivity, and customization.

So firefox holds 20% of the browser market share (at least it did the last time I checked). And what makes firefox a browser of choice of tech-savvy users and people who are sick of IE? Extensions. SO my choices are:


Adblock Plus -Blocks ads. duh.

Adblock Filterset.G Updater – It updates the ad filters of Adblock Plus every few days. You know, new banner networks etc. pop up every day, block’em all.

Flash Block – well, It blocks flash. On old comps it can be pretty tough with sites bloated with heavy flash. Or on old comps with *nix OS’s. (damn you, Adobe, give us a good flash plugin). And it doesn’t block it completely, it just adds a button on top of blocked flash, when u press it – flash plays.

Bug Me Not – An incredible time saver. Hate to register at some unknown site? Just use bug me not, it will automatically fetch a login and password from it’s user driven database and login for ya. You most likely won’t be able to login with it’s help on paid membership sites though.

NoScript – for your security if you’re using Windows.

Social Media

Social Browse –  a plugin for… emm, it’s a whole social network in a single plugin. My socialbrowse review. Kind of. ReadWriteWeb got a good review of this useful utility.

StumbleUpon Toolbar – StumbleUpon discovers web sites based on your interests, learns what you like and brings you more. You don’t actually have to install the toolbar to use Stumble Upon, but I still choose the toolbar, I don’t like some script toolbars hanging on top of sites.

Shareaholic – A must have for any Social Media Maven. It let’s you submit a page to all of the popular social media sites like digg, mixx, twitter and so on.

Delicious Bookmarks – syncs your firefox bookmarks with your bookmarks. ’nuff said. Must have,


Tiny Menu – your main menu takes up too much space? Here’s the solution.

Faviconize Tab – personal favorite. It let’s you shrink tabs so that only their favicons are visible. sweet.


Download StatusBar – Iit’s sweet, changes the default FF download manager.

DownThem All and FlashGot should also be considered a Ninja combo for downloads.


Firebug – words are not enough to descibe this power. Goddamn, gimme firebug and a notepad an I can make you a website in no time.

Developer Toolbar – a set of development tools in an easy to use toolbar.

SEOquake – the only SEO plugin I use. Shows the PR, backlinks, Index, Keyword Density etc. Very nice.


Greasemonkey – the king of the parade, lets you use scripts to enhance the browsing experience.

Better Youtube, Greader, GMail – all make these services.. ehmm, better. Trust me,  just install them.

Greasefire – let’s you search for greasemonkey scripts. There are literally thousands of ‘em.


FireGestures – adds mouse gestures to your browser. Very customizable and extremely handy.
Gmail manager – notifies you when you’ve got new mail, multiple account management etc.

Ubiquity – Revolutionary add on. still in alpha though. Just visit the link and watch the video. It’s the future.

Read It Later – Ever stumbled upon a very interesting article, but didn’t have the time to read it and the site wasn’t worth subscribing to? This add on is the ultimate solution to this problem 😉

And here’s some pure link baiting almost useless list of  100 Firefox Extensions.

And here’s a pretty decent list of good FF add ons

And if you use social media a lot, i Totally recommend you to install the Flock Browser. It’s based on the same gecko engine as firefox and all of firefox’s addons work for flock. Try it.
