List of Firefox Add-ons that I use

This is a simple list of the Firefox extensions that I always end-up installing, mostly to keep them all in one place so that I can add them easily to a new installation or profile (mmmmm, is there an extension that would do that for me?)

AdBlock Plus

All-in-One Sidebar Quick access to bookmarks, history and Feed Sidebar (see below)

British English Dictionary - Somewhere on Dictionaries

Feed Sidebar Simple - but effective.

Firebug tracing of much of the details of each page rendered - essential at work, sometimes useful at home.

Live PageRank Not heavyweight SEO, but good as a general indicator.

Web Developer Mostly work, but useful at home. Access to cookies, enabling and disabling specific page elements of functionality.

Location Navigator viewing sequences of pages/images outside the constraints of site navigation.

OpenBook tag new bookmarks with keywords as the bookmark is being made.

Search Engines for Wikipedia and LinkedIn.

All of which co-exist nicely and should work on Windows and Linux.

The following I tend to add to my userChrome.css file to remove the text on personal toolbar icons and squish them all together.

/* Kill bookmark text in the Personal Toolbar */ toolbarbutton.bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-text { display: none !important; } /* Shrink gaps between icons in Personal Toolbar */ toolbarbutton.bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-icon { border: 0px !important; margin: 0px !important; padding: 0px !important; }

which makes things much nicer in both Firefox 2.x and 3.x

firefox personal toolbar icons only
