November 2004

Currently installed Firefox extensions:
ChromEdit, ColorZilla, IEView, View Cookies, Linky, Digger, Add Bookmark Here, Autohide, Go Up, Undo Close Tab and EditCSS.

Of these, Undo Close Tab is the one I miss the most after every fresh new Firefox install. Always a shock if I find out too late I've forgotten to install it... :)

Add Bookmark Here is a recent discovery that I'm liking a lot. It really takes the frustration out of trying to add a bookmark to a specific (sub)folder.

Thanks for suggesting ColorZilla! A colorpicker is what I've been missing in my browsers since I don't know when. Never figured to look for an extension.

Man, I was looking for something like that 'Go Up' thing for ages! Thanks!

huphtur: heh, I was avoiding the webdeveloper extension because I didn't like the extra toolbar taking up space; I only now realized I could turn it off and use the Tools -> Web Developer menu instead :)

Waaw, thanks for letting me discover EditCSS!

milov: you could even make your own shortcuts. and you dont need EditCSS anymore.

milov: I just installed Firefox today. Yes, that web developer tool bar is crowding my view. How do you turn it off? Clicking on "Disable" in Tools? I can't find my IE Favorites which I thought were imported into Firefox Bookmarks. Lots to explore, I added 15 extensions from the Mozilla site. I wrote down your list given here.

Took me a while to figure it out as well, but all it takes is right-clicking any of the Firefox toolbars and disabling 'Web Developer Toolbar' in the little popup menu that appears.

Linky is the extension I add first after a fresh install.
