Featured: Context Search

by Olivier de Broqueville
Search highlighted text on any web page using your preferred search engine. Just right-click (or Shift-click) on the text to launch the context menu. You can also perform searches using keywords in the URL address bar.

“Great add-on and very helpful! Thank you for the good work.”

Featured: Behind the Overlay Revival

by Iván Ruvalcaba
Simply click a button to close annoying pop-up overlays.

“I don’t think I’ve ever reviewed an extension, but man, what a find. I get very sick of closing overlays and finding the little ‘x’ in some corner of it or some light colored ‘close’ link. They get sneakier and sneakier about making you actually read the overlay to find a way to close it. Now when I see one, I know right away I can click on the X in the toolbar and it will disappear. So satisfying.”

If you’d like to nominate an extension for featuring, please send it to amo-featured [at] mozilla [dot] org for the board’s consideration. We welcome you to submit your own add-on!

    Am I missing something? How is “Full Screen for Firefox” any different than simply pressing F11 to go full screen?
