    Since I was so happy with No Squint, I checked out all the add-ons that were available. That is when I found No Scripts. OMG! I don’t know how I survived without this! Being computer literate, but not savvy enough to do anything about it, I read the No Scripts manual. I never knew how insidious some malware can be. Cross-scripts, transparencies –they were all Greek to me! Wow! Within minutes of my downloading this software it alerted me to cross-scripts on a whitelisted site. I promptly scanned it with clamwin and realized the webpage contained trojan aspects. It saved me from a bucket of trouble. Since my add-ons do not work on other browsers, I will only be using Mozilla Firefox exclusively in the future.

    The best browser available, I’ve been following the Mozilla environment since the early linux days (way before Fedora). This has always been my favourite, and lately it’s regained strength due to the synchonization between all my windows/linux/android devices. I don’t care what I’m browsing on, I’ve got all my links nearby, ready to shoot at the Net

  6. Jesse

    Has to be Ad-Block Plus. I absolutely HATE how invasive ad’s are these days! Ad-Block has always been the first thing I install on my new machines and my friends and families machines whenever I see it absent on FireFox :)

    Always use it, have always loved it

  7. David

    Firefox and Zotero are an awesome combination, especially Portable Firefox. As a historian and researcher, I can attest that: Zotero add-on + Portable Firefox (both on a flash drive) = a low cost, dynamic research platform one can take with one to research libraries, anywhere…way to go Firefox and Zotero.

  8. Nico

    Ad Block Plus is the best for Firefox!

    7:30 AM – Monday through Sunday. Press the power button. Wait until the magnificent start up screen of Ubuntu loads. Enter my password for my user. Waiting….done. Click on orange square with a orange fox embracing a blue globe. No waiting time to load..thats the power of Firefox! New tab window opens – I take a bite out of my morning read apple – move cursor to top right of window. On the bar, click the green-three descending white stripe rombus icon named “Feedly”. Opens “home” news feed window. Stream through articles – anything from World news like Greece’s governmental issues, to gaming, like the release of Civilization V add-ons on Steam workshops. Like picture of Civilization V featured news feed, clip it and saves it on my notes app Evernote for later use with the powerful Firefox add-on “Evernote Clipper”. Not liking how the news feed delivers my news, click on the “Cleary” add-on to read it my way. Although my everyday tasks include various other add-ons with the fast Firefox browser, the three mentioned, with “Feedly” being the best, are what makes eating my apple in the morning more exhilarating….

  11. fajarmuchlis

  15. Georgi

    I think Adblock Plus have to be integrated directly to Firefox, not only like add-on.

  16. DEEPAK OJHA

    there are so many beautiful add-ons for mozilla firefox.
    But my favorites are fox tab, personas, ad-block.
    personas gives wide range of varieties of themes to switch on just in a second.
    for fox tab there is no need of remembering any web site address or to save any page. which i like the most i just put it on the “fox tab”

    What can I say? Firefox is the only web browser I will use since v3.0, on any operating system, and I use the top three (OSX, Linux/unix flavors, and Windows).

    I may be biased, but in my opinion not only does open source technology provide the most versatile and powerful options in computing, it often beats out the equivalent technology provided by the large, for profit companies.

    I can honestly say the web would not be as a wonderful a place for me without Firefox and the add ons I have installed.

    Thanks and love to Mozilla and the entire open source community. Let’s continue to make the world and ourselves better through sharing and collaboration!

  24. Amin Memar

    Greasemonkey is the best add-ons I think.
    I use it especially for games, such as Travian & …
    FireFox is the best browser in the world.

  25. Neesha

    A supplement that not missing in my Firefox, useful, easy to use and does not slow my Firefox. I can customize a keyboard shortcut to quickly translate the selected text or just by pressing the right button of my mouse over the selected text I have the option of: Translate selection. Also, if you do not select the text by pressing the right button, this will give me the option to translate the entire Web site.
    It is certainly very useful and customizable.

    Un complemento que no falta en mi Firefox es Google Translator, muy útil, fácil de usar y no hace lento mi Firefox. Puedo personalizar un atajo de teclado para traducir rápidamente el texto seleccionado o con tan solo presionar el botón derecho de mi mouse sobre el seleccionado texto tengo la opción de: Traducir selección. También, si no selecciono el texto al presionar el botón derecho, esto me dará la opción de traducir el Sitio Web completo.
    Sin duda, es muy útil y personalizable.

    My top fav is “Do Not Track Plus”. It gives me a more secure feeling while I’m surfing, and eliminates all those annoying ads in side bars. If I want to go shopping I will, but not while I’m trying to check out something completely unrelated – it’s almost as bad as TV commercials, which is one of the big reasons I don’t watch TV (the other being the almost complete lack of intelligent programing!)

  30. chen yongsen

    my opinion very good & the best firefox

  31. Rene sandoval

    Mi add favorita es adblock, es genial y util.

    Worried that you aren’t getting the best deal on anything you buy on the web? I was until i found Price blink and tried the demo to see if it worked I have saved $$ 1200.00 in the last 3 months with this app. It doesn’t take you anywhere you don’t want to go, no sponsors bias, all it does is popon the screen if the item your about to buy can be bought at a lower price elsewhere and the link to go right to it. THE BEST PART is the item price HISTORY for the past YEAR on that item so you can see if now is the best time to buy or not. Until i got this puppy going I had no idea how much i was manipulated by the today’s special pricing.

    I like The Sea App. I allows me to compare prices before I take my credit card out. I need not ask my friends and other connections any more. No competitive quotes, No sandwiching your vehicle between road jam ups and NO TENSION.
    Great going Yahooooooooooooo…………………………………………………..

  37. Syam

    For me, the best thing is get to know all the Add-Ons by Mozilla Firefox In-terms of New Product & Tools perhaps every since updating to a new version for up-coming brand new such as N-Droid, Facebook, WOT, Add-Block & much more, It was really interesting for all. “Great Benefits Come’s To A Great Opportunities”.

  38. Ashadullah Galib

    Ad Block & Firebug is Excellent….

  39. Rajkumar Pawar

    There are numerous add-ons and plugins that are proved assets due to the easiness and comfort they provide to their users.But for me the favorite add-on is the Facebook Touch Panel.
    This is because Facebook Touch Panel lets you quick check your Facebook Notifications and Messages by a special touch Panel without leaving your web experience.

    My favorite add-on is Video Download helper. I am using this for more than two years.
