Everybody’s doing it so now, I guess, so will I. Here are my favorite Firefox extensions, in no particular order.
PDF Download: This extension allows me to view PDFs within my browser as a pdf, convert it to html to view. A dialog box that gives you pdf options also shows you the size of the pdf so you can decide what to do with it before downloading. Highly customizable, lightweight and highly recommended! “Download PDF Download”:http://www.rabotat.org/firefox
del.icio.us: I use “del.icio.us”:http://del.icio.us like a maniac and cannot live without my Del.icio.us plugin. It allows you to add the link you are viewing to your del.icio.us with a button on your main toolbar. Clicking on it pops up a window that will ask you for tags and a description of the link. When you submit that form, it will automatically submit the link you were viewing to your account. Again, highly customizable and easy to use. “Download del.icio.us extension”:http://del.icio.us/help/firefox/extension
SessionSaver: This one is a life saver. Some times your computer freezes up, or Firefox hangs, or you just have to shutdown or restart your computer- and you have 17 tabs open that you cannot afford to loose. Well, all hail Session Saver, a Firefox extension that will keep track of all the tabs you have open and when you reopen Firefox it will reload all of them (either automatically or when you ask it to). Can’t live without it. “Download SessionSaver”:http://addons.mozilla.org/extensions/moreinfo.php?id=436
