My current Firefox extensions

My post about moving to Linux reminded me that it’s been a while since I posted what Firefox extensions I use. Here, courtesy of Extension List Dumper is the list:

    Bookmarks Synchronizer is a Mozilla Firefox extension that let you connect to an FTP/WebDAV server and synchronize your bookmarks that are stored in an XML file. Setup is easy; just write in your FTP/WebDAV server address, username, password and a name for the XML file (by default called xbel.xml). To start, press Upload to create the file on the server and set if you want to automatically download the file on startup or upload it when you close your browser.

    MMh. It looks like you need sxipper to manage your pass/identities :)

    Greetings.

  2. As an alternative to Bookmarks Sync, you might give Weave a look once you make the jump to FF 3.

    You may want to upgrade Adblock to “Adblock Plus”,
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1865

    “Adblock” is probably discontinued at the moment (last release in ’06).

    Once you get Adblock Plus, you can also put the companion extension:
    Adblock Plus: Element Hiding Helper
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4364

    which allows you to block ads in a graphical way (you can easily view the boundaries of the element in Firefox when you select to block), so no more hit and miss blocking.

    Both are derived from
    http://adblockplus.org/

    Finally, it is good to get NoScript,
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/722
    It forbids Javascript from running but you can enable on a per-host basis. In the beginning it will be cumbersome to select the hosts to enable, however, after a bit it gets ok. NoScript really helps you against Javascript attacks.

    Simon, great suggestions! I moved to AdBlock Plus and will look at NoScript.

    I find that Tab Mix Plus is better than Tabbrowser Preferences (but then I’m also using a nightly build aka Minefield)
