Useful Firefox Addons
Below is a list of the extensions that I use for reference whenever I am setting up a new computer.
- Fireshot - Allows you to screenshot an entire webpage.
- RESTer - Good for testing API endpoints. I used to use Postman, but one day it screwed me and made all my work inaccessible unless I paid them, so I stopped using them.
- Tab Groups - Allows you to group tabs, but most importantly, you can press
ctrl-shift-eto view all of your tabs in a single window and easily close them.
The following extensions are really useful but will slow down Firefox startup and page loading.
- uBlock Origin seems to be a faster than adblock plus at blocking adverts.
- Adblock Plus - The ad blocker everyone knows and an alternative to uBlock origin.
- Privacy Badger
- Ghostery - block content that would track you.
If you have and recommendations, please put them in the comments.
