I thought that some people probably would like to know which Firefox extensions I'm using to extend the Firefox web browser. While it is almost certain that you have different preferences, it is likely that you may spot a couple of extensions in the list that you may find useful as well.
Having said that, I'd very much like to get inspired as well, so please do me a favor and post the add-ons that you are using in the comment section below this article.
All extensions are listed with their name, link, and a short description. Note that you can find out more about it on the project page of the extension, and that my description of the extension tries to explain what it does in a single sentence. So, for a more refined description, follow the links.
Hope at least one or two could be useful for you, let me know please.
Update: Several extensions that I have been using six years ago are no longer available, usually because they have been abandoned by their author. I have removed links pointing to those from the list. You will still find that half of the extensions are still updated regularly, or at least functional in the latest release versions of the Firefox web browser.
Update 2: I'm currently using a bare bones version of Firefox with only two extensions. First there is NoScript, the best security add-on in the browser world, and second there is Multi Links, that enables me to open multiple links at once.
