Re: Firefox Extensions...

NoScript - block javascript, flash

Adblock / Adblock Plus  -   block ads/banners etc

TabBrowser Preferences - more options for tabbed browsing

These 3 extensions are used on all my firefox installs, both for linux and windows.

The first 2 make surfing a LOT friendlier.


Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

Re: Firefox Extensions...

The ones I use permanently:
- Adblock
- Greasemonkey for a script to keep track of changes in my last.fm charts

I install and remove other extensions as needed. Usually to do evil stuff such as downloading flash video or entire sites.  tongue

Re: Firefox Extensions...

How anyone goes through life without Flash Block is beyond me.

Another one I didn't notice up top is Disable Targets for Downloads, although I'm not sure if it exists for newer version of Firefox.

Re: Firefox Extensions...

If I understand correctly what Noscript does, Konqueror already has that functionality built in. As well as adblocking.

Re: Firefox Extensions...

these are the one's I can't live without:
· Greasemonkey: need my additional shortcuts for gmail
· Stylish* fixes alot of uglyness on webpages
· Tab Mix Plus: Started using it with 2.0, as Tabbed Browswer Preferences doesn't add as much anymore
· Download Statusbar
· Ad Block Plus: I love the collapseable flash ad capability
· Foxmarks Bookmark sycronizer; keeps my bookmarks synced

Other nice ones I use on occasion (installed but leave "disabled" until I need them.  (keeps load times down). · Platypus
· Aardvark
· Web Developer
· AllPeers; this works better for me than IM file transfers through my school's network.

enjoy
