Best / Popular Firefox Add-ons


Best add-ons for firefox : ehack

Best add-ons for firefox : ehack

Firefox is one of the most popular browsers on the market, and although it wasn’t the first Web browser to support extensions, it definitely has the largest library of them. Third party developers have been making custom Firefox add-ons for years now, and with a library that numbers in the millions, it can be hard to track down the best ones. For that reason, we’ve put together this list of our favorites that are sure to give your browser a boost.

GreaseMonkey : ehackGreaseMonkey

The end-all be-all of browser extensions. This one lets you run countless custom user-created scripts and tweak the Internet in tons of different ways.

ghostery : ehackGhostery

We hate to break it to you, but your browsing isn’t private. On almost every website you visit, bugs and trackers collect data on the pages you go to and the links you click. Ghostery blocks over 1,000 of these bugs and provides you quick access to more information about the ones it’s blocking.

auto pager : ehackAutoPager

AutoPager eliminates the need for you to click “next page” ever again. The extension auto-loads subsequent pages on any multi-page site and allows you to scroll continuously through the contents.

FasterFox : ehackFasterFox

Much like you’d expect, this one makes Firefox faster. We’re not exactly sure how it works, but we do know that it does.

TinEye Reverse image search : ehackTinEye Reverse Image Search

Have an image and need to find it in a different size or format? Use TinEye to track it down, and also search for similar images.

lazarus-form-recovery : ehackLazarus Form Recovery

With a namesake from the man whom Jesus brought back to life four days after he was dead, the Lazarus extension more or less does what its biblical lore describes: it recovers everything you enter into form fields. So, if the page crashes or times out, you don’t lose everything.

gTranslate : ehackgTranslate

Highlight any text in a foreign language, right-click on it, and you’ll instantly be given a Google-powered translation into the language of your choice.

 

 

lastpass : ehackLastPass

Lastpass saves all your passwords in a locally encrypted vault, so not even LastPass has access to them. In addition to saving and auto-filling passwords, it can also be used to generate highly secure passwords when you create new accounts.

 

 

shareaholic : ehackShareaholic

Use Shareaholic to share to more than 200 social networks.

Firefox 20 improves private browsing and user experience

Mozilla has fixed three critical security flaws and rolled out several new features with its latest browser update, Firefox 20. New features include per-window private browsing, a new download manager and the ability to close hanging plug-ins separately.

Previous versions of Firefox had private browsing capabilities but they always required users to open a separate window. Firefox 20 allows users to browse privately without closing or changing their current browsing session.

Mozilla said that private browsing can be used to shop for a birthday present or check multiple email accounts simultaneously.

Firefox 20 also gives desktop users a new Safari-like download manager that pops out from the toolbar, enabling users to monitor, view, and locate downloaded files without having to switch to another window. The complete list of new features that are built into Firefox 20 can be found on the official changelog.

The three flaws listed on Mozilla’s security advisories page which are fixed in Firefox 20 include a bypass of System Only Wrappers that can allow protected nodes to be cloned, a WebGL flaw which only affects Linux users using Intel Mesa graphics drivers and a range of memory safety hazards.

The latest release in Mozilla’s six-month update cycle is available to download now which is available to download on Windows, Linux, Mac and Android. Users of previous desktop versions of Firefox should be able to upgrade to Firefox 20 automatically. The Android version of Firefox 20 is available through the Google Play Store.

Speed up your internet connection using firefox


Speed up your internet connection using firefox : ehack

Speed up your internet connection using firefox : ehack

1. Type “about:config” into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:

network.http.pipelining
network.http.proxy.pipelining
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really
speeds up page loading.

2. Alter the entries as follows:

Set “network.http.pipelining” to “true”

Set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” to “true”

Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to some number like 30.

This means it will make 30 requests at once.

3. Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer.

Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0?.

This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it recieves.

If you’re using a brodband connection you’ll load pages 2-3 times faster now.
