This page lists Mozilla addons that I use or am interested in. This page exists because Mozilla decided to adopt an accelerated development schedule which will likely break many extensions every three months. Having all the extensions linked from a single page will help me track their cat-and-mouse game with new Firefox and Thunderbird versions, and to keep a handy list of alternatives at hand.
Annoyed by adverts? Troubled by tracking? Bothered by banners? Install Adblock Plus now to regain control of the internet and change the way that you view the web.
I use this extension only to disable mouse-hover popups. I do not block online advertising.
This extension allows you to execute common commands using mouse gestures, rocker navigation, scroll wheel navigation and page.
AiOS lets you open various windows as sidebar panels, and quickly switch between them. So it put an end to the window chaos! In addition to bookmarks and history it opens dialogues such as downloads, add-ons and more in the sidebar.
Detects Duplicate Bookmarks when bookmarks are added and specify where is the previous URL. You can also search and delete duplicates URL already in your Bookmarks.
Add a compact menu button to the navigation toolbar, and hide the menu bar.
Delete unwanted cookies.
The easy way to download and convert Web videos from hundreds of YouTube-like sites. This works also for audio and picture galleries.
Allows you to drag tab as shortcut instead of default detach to new window.
Never be annoyed by a Flash animation again! Blocks Flash so it won't get in your way, but if you want to see it, just click on.
This is one of my essential extensions. If I ever move to a different web browser, it will have to implement automatic and selective Flash blocking.
LastPass is a free online password manager and Form Filler that makes your web browsing easier and more secure. Your sensitive data is encrypted _locally_ before upload so even LastPass cannot get access to it.
This is one of my essential extensions. If I ever move to a different web browser, it will have to incorporate Lasspass integration. Most browsers today do.
Never lose anything you type into a web form again! Lazarus securely auto-saves all forms as you type, so after a crash, server timeout, or whatever, you can go back to the form, right click, "recover form", and breathe a sigh of relief.
More than a textbox.
Rearrange or remove menuitems from the main context menu (right-click menu) and main menubar (File Edit View etc.)
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.
Helps you to save Web pages and organize the collection.
Search selected text with various search services.
This is one of my essential extensions. If I ever move to a different web browser, it will have to implement the ability to search for highlighted strings at configured websites. In particular, I have this extension configured to search milon.co.il, a Hebrew-English dictionary. This feature is so essential that I use it in my PDF reader (Okular) as well.
Links opened in a new tab retain their history. (If you open a link in a new tab, and then click back in that new tab, you'll go back to the page you opened the link from.)
Show tabs like a tree.
This is one of my essential extensions. In fact, this extension is the primary reason that I do not switch to Opera.
Make Firefox look and behave like Vim
This is one of my essential extensions. I cannot imagine using a web browser that does not have full keyboard control. In fact, it is almost painful for me to use web browsers on other peoples' computers due to the lack of Vimperator.
Direction control and BiDi-related charset misdetection correction.
Add symbol in header plane to switch between compact and expanded view. Options to switch between one or two lines compact view, which buttons should be displayed in header pane. Linkify RSS subject.
Note: Obsolete as Thunderbird Conversations already incorporates the features of this extension.
Add a compact menu button to the navigation toolbar, and hide the menu bar.
OpenPGP message encryption and authentication for Thunderbird and SeaMonkey.
This is one of my essential extensions. If I ever move to a different email client, it will have to implement PGP as well.
Adds the Google Calendar web interface as a new tab directly into Thunderbird. Creating and viewing events works just as it would in a browser like Firefox.
Show the Hebrew date in your browser's status.
Does not work with Muttator. I need to write to the Muttator devs about this.
Hebrew spell-checking dictionary for Firefox and Thunderbird.
Maximize message pane by collapsing the thread pane. You can read a message in larger area without opening a new message window.
Make Thunderbird behave like Vim.
This is one of my most essential Thunderbird extensions. Due to terrible defaults and no ability to change them (such as arrow key navigation) this extension is neccessity for me.
This addon calls attention to main window on new message arrival.
Quicktext is an extension for Thunderbird that lets you create templates that can be easily inserted into your own emails.
This is one of my essential extensions. If I ever move to a different email client, it will have to implement canned-text insertation as well. I use it for common answers to common questions (gibberish.co.il mails) and different sigs for different languages.
Adds the Character Encoding menu to the context menu.
Adds two items to the threadpane context menu, 'Search for this sender' and 'Search for this subject'. This basically takes the sender or subject of the selected message, copies it to the QuickSearch window and starts the search.
This is one of my essential extensions. If I ever move to a different email client, it will have to implement a quick-search on the current folder for messages from the same sender, at a minimum. This is not a replacement for threading, but rather a terrific alternative when the other party does not know how to properly use threading.
Displays a slideshow of picture attachments. When email has attached pictures, it displays "View as Slideshow" button next to the attachment. Button click pops a slideshow window with all the images, allowing you to zoom in/out, save...
This is one of my favorite extensions. Although I could live without it, this feature really makes sharing photos a pleaseant experience. Note: Obsolete as Thunderbird Conversations already incorporates the features of this extension.
Add toolbar for toggling tags.
This is one of my essential extensions. If I ever move to a different email client, it will have to provide a quick way to add and view message tags as well. Note that this extension nicely compliments Muttator's tag-adding and removing capability.
This addon provides a conversation view for Thunderbird, including contacts tooltips, attachment thumbnails, quick (inline) reply, integration with other addons, and much more.
This extension is much better than Thunderbird default threading. In fact, I think that the Gmail threading UI is by far the slickest implementation of the feature and makes it useable when communicating people who don't know how to quote properly. Additionally, this addon obsoletes several other addons that I use, some of which were are not updated to current Thunderbird versions in a timely manner anyway.
Allows you to modify your Identity settings for a single Mail on the fly.
This is one of my essential extensions. If I ever move to a different email client, it will have to implement the following features: 1) Save From addresses specific to each recipient (Kmail feature request), and 2) Automatically use the To address of a received mail as the From address of the reply (Kmail feature request).
WAT (WebApplicationTab) enables to open a given URL in a new tab.
A Creamy Sugary Experience. (Thunderbird Theme)
