Two invaluable buttons for Firefox
There are two buttons I always install when using Firefox, I have found that these not only shorten the time it takes me to do things, but they save me from a lot of frustration.
I use ftp a lot to transfer files to my own blog and when I really get into writing I can close and open it several times. I use Fire FTP, a Firefox extension that lets you transfer files via FTP protocol right there in your browser. This is an immensely useful tool, but to access it you need to go to the tools menu and select it from the list.
Luckily you can install the Fire FTP button that will let you access it from any toolbar. Remember, you won't see it after you install, you need to right-click a toolbar, click on customize, find the button and drag it to any toolbar. I placed it just to the left of my URL bar , so it's quite accessible.
Update: If you do not want to use a clear cache button, you can alternatively simply use the Ctrl-F5 shortcut to force Firefox to retrieve the page you are on from the server. It boils down to a matter of preference more than anything else. If you prefer to use the mouse, install the clear cache button extension, if you use the keyboard more than the mouse, use the keyboard shortcut instead.Advertisement
