My extensions on Firefox and Thunderbird 2016

After a year from this article, and given the success that has received it’s time to update it.

The list could also have extensions already seen last year.



uBlock Origin

uBlock Origin/uBlock replaced AdBlock Plus in my installation because established better performances and a interface very intuitive that enable to deepen what the websites are doing.


Privacy Badger

badger-strokeThis extension is made by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and has proven to work very well by blocking the garbage of the sites that track you. The problem is that often some sites do not work with that, in the panel provided you can enable specific domains and often happens with social login (even with Persona) or during the registration where there are several calls for tracking.


These two extensions lighten many websites that became fast during the loading and less expensive for the computer.

Addon Update Checker

This extension allows to know which extension receive updates and to read the changes comfortably from the panel. This extension is also for Thunderbird.


Beyond Australis


The last year the name was The fox, only better but now with the new panel allows a customization of the interface very advanced.

Adds a new button in the context menu that allows you to copy text without the HTML dirt that bothers on TinyMCE or other editor (like Google Translate).


Dictionary Switcher

It adds to the context menu the option to change the dictionary for spellchecking through the languages available in the browser. Very useful when writing in multiple languages on the browser.

Menu Wizard

The Firefox context menu contains many items but are often not used. This extension allows you to edit the menu.


New Tab Tools

About:newtab is very useful but will be better to customize!



Firefox saves a lot of information in the database sqlite after so much time they need to be optimized, this extension automatically every few days doing this work.


Reddit Enhancement Suite

Because also reddit need few enhancements like the infinite scrolling.


Thumbnail Zoom Plus

Often the thumbnail refer to a largest version, with this extension it automatically add a tooltip with the big version. Very useful in social sites.



Automatic Dictionary

For people like me who speaks two languages needs a spellchecker that works and that recognizes the language automatically. This extension solves this problem!


BorderColors GT

Thunderbird is comfortable in managing multiple accounts, but there is the risk of sending emails with the wrong one. This extension adds a different border depending on the email in the composition window.



The area that contains the email information with the various buttons in the email view contains a lot of information poorly organized. This extension optimizes the layout and the dimensions.


Contact Tabs

Add a search field for all address book contacts and improves the management of turning contacts into tabs.


Enhanced Desktop Notifications

In Linux environments adds support to system notifications when you receive new email, needless to say the comfortable.



We are used to having social networks with a photo of the person with which you speak because do not add also in Thunderbird?


Inverse SOGo Connector

It adds CardDAV support of Thunderbird, so I have my OwnCloud contacts synchronized on my mail client.


OwnCloud for Filelink

Thunderbird in case of large attachments can automatically upload the files on specific services then why not use your ownCloud?



It adds in the bottom bar information about the space occupied by the email in terms of MB. In this way I can control how much garbage there is around.
