Useful Firefox Addons

Below is a list of the extensions that I use for reference whenever I am setting up a new computer.

  • Ctrl-Tab - Makes ctrl-tab go back to the last used tab rather than cycling through tabs. Refer here.
  • Downthemall - Accelerates downloads and allows you to pause/resume them.
  • HTTPS Everywhere - Automatically redirect to the https version of sites if one is available. This can prevent third parties injecting malicious content into your traffic or monitoring you.
  • Bad Bird Blocker - remove adverts from inside your twitter feed. This has since been removed by its author.
  • Firebug - Great for web developers. - Use Firefox Developer Tools now instead.

The following extensions are really useful but will slow down Firefox startup and page loading.

If you have and recommendations, please comment.
