The Best Firefox Addons and Plugins

Updated on August 10, 2010

The Best Firefox Addons

These are super useful addons and plugins for the Best Browser Ever; Firefox.

Now you can install the even better Firefox 3!

The Top Five Reasons Why Firefox is Best

  1. Spell checking built in
  2. Provides search suggestions and integrated search
  3. Phishing protection and a way to report phishing sites or pages
  4. Protection from spyware
  5. Thousands of addons available to personalize Firefox

Firefox is the Best Browser Overall

This is my opinion

A good indication of how impressive Firefox is would be in the fact that Microsoft Internet Explorer has copied many of the best Firefox features and qualities.

However, I would still argue that Firefox is better.

Rather than use a bad copy, why not go with the innovator?

That would be Firefox!

Don't bury your head! Use the Firefox Addons

Don't bury your head!  Use the Firefox Addons

Firefox Addons Search Page

You can add all the addons that you want, but they do take up space and resources. Each one you add could slow the loading of Firefox and the pages you visit, so use them in moderation.

200 Firefox addons at the same time?!

200 Firefox addons at the same time?!
200 Firefox addons at the same time?!

Just a baby without Addons...

Just a baby without Addons...
Just a baby without Addons...

Well, addons...whatever...

Well, addons...whatever...
Well, addons...whatever...

Your turn: Am I right?

      Firefox add-ons developers offer even a tool that automatically installs most used and featured by Mozilla extensions and ad-ons.

      Tab Mix Plus is also very useful - to configure tab behaviour, colour, size etc.. And FF version 4 is way better than 3.x - faster + does not hog memory like the previous version did.

      Overall, I really like FF because of so many useful add-ons. I've enjoyed using FF, especially for Squidoo, but off late it seems to have slowed down, so I've switched to Chrome. I still use FF for most other things, but not for Squidoo anymore.

      What's that you say? 200 add-ons for FireFox? Holy moly batman, I'm still running my OLD rebuilt computer with Windows XP and already have encountered slowdowns on most days. It's like somebody else is working with me on my computer and dashboard. I've been a little challenged with the No-Script add-on that I use. You almost need an add-on expert to diagnose which ones to use.

      I checked to see if you had included Firebug, which you had. That tool alone saves a tremendous work when developing web applications.

      Very comprehensive list!

      Firefox is my browser of choice as well. I added the Digg toolbar to the "Social Bookmarking" plexo above--I use it a _lot_. 5*

      Thank you for this lens, which received 5 stars, of course, is stumbled and digged it(for no forget it, if I need something). Already now I downloaded the SquidooDE and SEO-Tool. They are really great. The SEO-Tool helps me more than all, now I have not to go to every single step and site to check that all out, but I have it in one step. Great!!

      A bar comes up on my pages and says I need to add Adobe flash player plug-in to see all the media on my pages, but then when I try, it says already done. Then goes back and does it all over! Anyone know what I need to do? I'm new at all this! Help. Good lens, though, even if I can't figure all this out yet.
