  20. Miles

    Oui, si je peux me permettre en français,

    Je trouve que YoOno est très meilleure comme application puisque sur la vraie page de facebook, je loope plusieurs publications meme si je suis en ligne, certains ne s’affichent pas.
    Par contre, sur YoOno, les publications sonnent comme un cellulaire et quelqu’un d’autre peut se connecter sur un réseau local sans qu’on m’exige la déconnection.
    Surtout que je peux me connecter aux autres réseaux à la fois, j’evite cela car mon PC “devenu telephone” sonner toute la journée sans répit.

    En plus, il y a “Stylish”, j’épate des visiteurs de mon PC avec des papillons qui voltigent en arrière plan de mon Firefox 13.

  21. Miles

    Yes,

    I find that Yoono is better as an application since the actual home of facebook, I Loope several publications even if I am online, some are not displayed.
    By cons, on Yoono, publications sound like a cell and someone else can connect to a WLAN that requires me to disconnect.
    Especially since I can connect to other networks at a time, I avoided it because my PC “phone now” ringing all day long without respite.

    In addition, there is “Stylish” I amazes visitors from my PC with butterflies fluttering in the background of my Firefox 13.

  22. tootis

    my favorite add-on is adblock
    it’s really a nice add-on that stops the disturbing ads

  23. Obadina

    My favorite add on is flash got
    Why?
    Because before i got it i didn’t know a way to download flash content from the internet.
    But now that is past story
    With just one click i can download all i want……..Don’t you think that’s cool?

  36. Armo

    My favorit addon is “trackerblock”
    be cause navigation privacy to day is holding with a single wire, and the internet is no longer what it was yesterday.
    to day every one get his own personalized serch result when he make a request for a page.
    filter alghorithms make it dificult to have what is realy in the cloud but a targeted and personalized page.
    this is why i found this addon usefull and why i like firefox .

  37. Tayyaba

    Hi,

    The add-on that I like best is the FireShot. I do a lot of QA and testing on websites and webpages, so this neat and gritty little add-on makes my day every day. I can share and upload as many screenshots as I want, and add labels wherever needed.
    The FireShot add-on has proven to be extremely handy, and I would definitely call it the most productive and easy to use add-on available.

    Thanks.

  38. helen steinhofer

    I have been using Firefox since the beginning and It is a lot of fun to use and way better then Internet Explorer.I always had problems with IE but not Firefox it has been a great program since I am a college student too.

    FIREBUG,this is my favourite addon in firefox,I can view source code of webpages and can edit some css elements /html tags in firebug LIVELY. It lists out the javascript events ,i also use this to debug javascript functionalities.Instead of using alert to track whats happening in javascript file we can use FBug to set breakpoints,to track JS files step by step.In FBug console we can check errors on page.I also like Firebug collection addons.
