firefox extensions that make my life easier
In a comment to my post about the BugMeNot extension for Firefox
, Curtis said I should list all the extensions I use with Firefox
. So, blame this post on him.

(get some here
: right-click in the username text field of any registration-required site and you'll (possibly) get a valid username/password. Submit, then surf.
: select & right-click a word, opens a new tab with definition from dictionary site of your choice (I use dictionary.com
: control your media player (MusicMatch Jukebox, in my case) from within your browser's status bar or toolbar.
: adds link-related options to the context menu.
- Gmail Notifier
: integrated GMail notifier, checks mail at customizable interval, click to open GMail in new tab.
: inserts a thumbnail Web site preview in Google search results. Lets you know ahead of time if site is just going to be too heinous to visit...
: like a sticky note, helpful because I have crappy handwriting and my browser is always open anyway...and if it isn't, then I'm not working so notes are irrelevant.
: RSS/Atom feed aggregator.
- Tab X
: adds an "x"-closes-tab button in each browser tab...this really should be a standard part of the browser UI.
