Winner Selection

  • Is your story compelling?
  • How creative is your use of your favorite add-on?

Voting will end on or about July 18, 2012, and the winners will be announced on or about August 1, 2012.

Judging Panel

  • Ken Saunders | Mozilla Contributor

    Firebug – I am a web developer and Firebug is my bread and butter.
    It helps immensely by its console output, HTML browser, and Javascript debugger.

    Not to mention the on-the-fly editing of HTML and CSS.

    I don’t know how we ever lived without this one.

    Personally, I like different varities of add-ons. Retro, Abstract or black & White. It gives my laptop like a 70′s feeling everytime I log on. It makes Mozilla Firefox have a cosy texture to the web-Pages which covers all your essentials.

    easy you tube video downloaded is the best add-on for me, i used different software for downloading videos but when I came to know about this, I used it and just deleted all software
    I like it because its easy to use, fast & reliable, also saves my time.
    As all of us have known, FIREFOX is the best browser and it’s the fastest and the most secure then Firefox is best tool for saving money. Actually beside the Firefox framework as a platform for add-on, I think all of them (add-ons) are good and reliable and cause ease in many fields in browsing the web. but I think in general the Adblock Plus is the best.
    Adblock Plus is my favorite add-on. I made Firefox my default browser just because of this add-on alone. Though IE and Chrome had their versions of Adblock they are not as effective as the Firefox add-on. Thanks to Firefox for introducing a concept like add-ons. I also use DownThemAll, WOT, NoScript, IE Tab Plus for a pests free surfing and downloading experience.

    AD-block plus and Web filter.AD block plus saves me by restricting useless advertisements pop-ups.Web filter keeps me out of the adult content.Since it also recognize adult pictures so it simply restricts me to enter those sites.These Two are must for me.

    I like InstantFox, it’s very useful and can be customize. I just love to do research quickly. Moreover, it’s simply to use.

    Well, firstly i wanna thanks firefox for it great achievement in every versions they were made unlike any other browsers, And the new FF13 was super fast like as jet even in slowest connection and i really appreciate for the heavy efforts that put through in every making of their project for the best.

    the add-on are really useful and great as well, as we don’t require to go in long process to get them or get the exact softwares for example let’s says, DownThemAll— it’s a small application which can help the users to download with no tense or worries, as the old browsers or normal browser do only help them download and restart if it’s interrupted, but theis Add-on: DownthemAll- it help in various way according to the feature and characteristic provided like a resume facility, enhancing the download speed against the old browser. and so on. and it’s definitely free as well and if you are willing to contribute then you can go ahead donate for the works they ‘ve done for the world. And too, there are many third parties software available usually which are not free at all like DAP[ premium] this sort of program has a limited access by default if you don’t upgrade them with costs.

    And too the ADD-On like Flashblock- too help get rid of those ads which is unnecessary while browsing, not only that it also help to get better speed while browsing as it block many of the unnecessary contents.

    Finally, the FabTabs:- really is quite impressive outlook and posses a classy way of Tabs, you don’t have to confuse anymore of your various TAbs as it has a unique color identity to easily identify.

    hopefully, FF will more produce add on which would help every users to browser with much satisfaction. Thank you.

  39. Chris P wrote on :

    I find that all of the add-ons are useful, in their own ways and means. I don’t use all of the add-ons offered by Mozilla, per se, but every single one that I do has it’s purpose. I really like the adblocker, just because I hate spam and useless use of space. I really like the Quick Translator because I like to check out other cultures and learn new languages. All-in-all… Personas are the best. Bringing a mood and light to every feeling I have.

    I use way more add-ons than I should (32 in total), but they’re all so great I can’t help myself. I like the ones that clean up the interface and add toolbars that I can toggle on and off. I use the StumbleUpon toolbar to keep my bookmarks so I can hide them when i don’t need them. I also have the TMT toolbar that I can toggle. It hosts my bookmark, history, and download buttons. Vertical Toolbar is an obvious one. I love Toolbar Buttons because it adds hundreds of useful buttons. I also really like UseableHomeButton which makes the home button take me to the homepage of the website I’m on. I love tabs and use Tab Mix Plus, Tab Scope, and Tab Badge for managing them. But my all time favorite add-on is Greasemonkey. I’m just the kind of person that has to have my things tweaked to the very last minuscule feature. That is why I love Firefox so much. I couldn’t use any other browser as my default.
