Essential Firefox Extensions

Firefox users, lend me your ears! As you know, Firefox is like the most excellent, versatile, reliable, and secure browser available today. Extensions are just one of the features that make Firefox so versatile and efficient. Extensions enable Fx users to customize their browsing experience by adding tools that help with security, searching, and multimedia. Here is a list of my favorite — nay, essential — Firefox extensions:

  1. A note on the Fasterfox plugin: adding the following two lines of code to the root robot.txt file will spare servers from heavy loads caused by the plugin's enhanced prefetching feature.

    user-agent: Fasterfox
    disallow: /

  2. to download embedded videos I prefer to use Ook? Video Ook!

    Update: we removed the SEO Links Fx Plugin (404 link removed 2012/06/26) due to conflicts with both Lightbox and FancyTooltips (plugin for WordPress). Our exclusive article, Lightbox + FancyTooltips Bug Fix, describes and solves a conflict between Lightbox and FancyTooltips. The methods described in the article may be useful in resolving the issue encountered with SEO Links for Firefox when Lightbox or FancyTooltips is also present.

    I’ve used Fasterfox for quite a while now, and though it occasionally slows down new pages I visit, pages I regularly visit it speeds up surfing a LOT!

    I’ve found a link for a tweaked version of Fasterfox, called rather cheesly Fastererfox. It allows you to grab web pages even faster with some new options which can be changed by the rather cool sounding “Thrash” option in the properties box.

Spent some time refreshing my business portfolio at MonzillaMedia.com :)
Tried lots of apps for making animated GIFs from screen captures, so far Kap is my favorite. For example the GIF on this post.
Autumn is my favorite time of year.
Stoked! Had a great interview with Eric over at Speckyboy.com :)
