  • 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

Ken has been volunteering for Mozilla since 2005 and is the creator and project manager of Access Firefox. He’s also an Add-ons developer, Mozilla Accessibility steward, and a self-proclaimed add-ons junkie, with 56 add-ons enabled (68 installed).

    DownThemAll is for me the best add-on for Firefox. One click and I can download every single image or video as fast as it’s possible. If you want to download e.g. more than one image you can select them and click download. It’s perfect add-on.

  9. Artur wrote on :

    Second of my favorite add-ons is Adblock Plus. With this add-on I can surf in Internet fast. It’s really helpful when somebody hasn’t more time, or, if you don’t like big ad banners with text: CLICK ME! No, I just kidding now, but Adblock Plus is better than good add-on. It’s perfect tool for everybody who just want to do something in a web nicely. And, if you’re working with small resolution, Adblock Plus (very often) increases your area by removing ads from the content. That’s the reason why I use Adblock Plus add-on for Firefox. Heh, and it works in background so you don’t must to do anything 😉

    Add-ons are an essential part of mozilla firefox. There are so many of them. And selecting one out of them is a tough job. But I think this competition is a good way to find out which add-on is most popular in the people. And their interesting uses.

    My favorite addon has to be ‘compact header’ in Thunderbird and ‘save as pdf’ in Firefox. There is no doubt that those two are the first ones I install in every new installation.

  17. saim ali wrote on :

    Xmarks Bookmark and Password Sync: Anyone who uses multiple PCs will appreciate Xmarks since you maintain one set of bookmarks across all PCs. Just install Xmarks into Firefox and it will record your current bookmarks roster, as well as the saved passwords in your Firefox password manager. On any other computer running Firefox, just download Xmarks, use your Xmarks login, and all your passwords and bookmarks are ported into the current browser. Sign out and the import is revoked. As a guy who logs into multiple VPNs on several machines – each with long, convoluted URL structures – Xmarks is a lifesaver.

    Obviously, lot of people are unable to read instructions from start to the end…
    This is probably useless (as these people probably doesn’t care to read comments either) but:
    DON’T post a review here (if we can call that reviews…). Post in the comments of your favorite add-on.

    Well ! according to me FOXTAB add-on is the best . Earlier i used to write the names of site which i have to use but this add-on enabled me to do so within seconds and it also provides a user friendly and interactive interface between the user and the program . With its themes and coloring options , FOXTAB provides a decent and attractive look to your Mozilla Firefox .

    Good stuff.

  44. Ramendra wrote on :

    When you sit for a download the biggest problem occurring to users is that they have very less amount of time. In such a situation, you need a proper download manager. I was, am and will be always happy as the Exciting Firefox offers a great Download Manager Add-on – ‘ DownThemAll’. This add-on is just not a substitute for your disease of irritation but also a compatible add-on which helps the mozilla to beat all the rest of Browsers. 🙂
