After three years (!!!) let’s see the 2018 list what has for us, or offer to me as user.
- GlotDict for WordPress translators my most famous and used extension
- Facebook Direct Links to avoid redirects on Facebook links
- Share Backported , to share links on over 14 social networks or services.
- On this extension I want to talk about it a bit being the one with more success (over 1700 downloads). Created because I was using this feature a lot and I wanted a replacement. Over the time it has been very successful coming to support more services of the integrated version of Firefox < 57, many of which I do not even use.
Let’s move on to the extensions I use:
- Code Copy, ideal for developers. It recognizes automatically specific sites and in the blocks of code it allows to make the copy easily.
- Emoji Box, so you have a window to enter the emojis also from the computer.
- Facebook Tracking Exposed, to help analyze the Facebook algorithm.
- Facebook UnSeen Messenger, to read messages on messenger chat without mark them as read and result online.
- GitHub File Icon, to add the format icon to various files that appear in the lists on Github.
- GitHub Repository Size, to find out how heavy a repository is.
- Google search link fix, to remove the redirect on the links of the Google results.
- History AutoDelete, to automatically delete the oldest history based on settings (I keep only the last 3 months).
- Hover Zoom+, to display enlarged images on mouseover. I opened the request to bring it on Firefox time ago. Useful on sites like Reddit or Facebook.
- I do not care about cookies, to remove warnings about cookies on websites. They do not interest anyone and I forget about these notices. Using Firefox on Android I installed the extension again and removed the issue from mobile.
- KDE Connect, in order to send links to your Android device in environments with KDE. I made the request to get it on Firefox. </ Li>
- LanguageTool Grammar Check, to check the grammar when I write in English.
- MDN Search, so you can easily search on mdn using the address bar.
- Min Vid, an experiment in Firefox Test Pilot to view videos of some services in a dedicated window.
- Advanced GitHub Notifier, notifications of GitHub but at the system level and with a counter.
- Octopatcher, for useful features on GitHub how to compact code blocks in tickets or readme.
- Octotree, to show the GitHub and Bitbucket files in a side column.
- Out of Bounds, to remove redirects on Reddit links.
- Passman, my password manager based on my nextcloud instance. I have opened several tickets over time and I am also a patreon. I love it.
- Privacy Badger, along with Firefox’s tracking-protection feature are perfect for surfing in peace.
- Reddit Enhancement Suite, for endless scrolling on Reddit and other things. It gives me problems with Firefox tracking protection, so I can not use it to the fullest.
- Refined GitHub, optimizes the Github interface.
- uBlock Origin, to block advertising on the internet.
On Firefox I heavily use Sync to send me links between devices and to synchronize favorites and also the functionality of screenshots.
Firefox Developer Edition
On the Firefox Dev Edition instance I use extensions helpful for my job as developer.
- Compat Report, for an analysis of CSS and HTML for compatibility between browsers.
- Corser, to disable CORS according to configuration.
- CSS Reload, to reload the page css with a button.
- HTTP Request Maker, shows a sidebar to make REST requests.
- Laboratory, to test CSP rules on pages.
- User Agent Switcher, to change useragent.
- WordPress Query Monitor, one of my extensions to display the output of the WordPress homonymous plugin in DevTools.
- xDebug Helper, in order to enable xDebug from the browser.
I use the beta version (better and faster) but as usual I use different extensions.
- Adblock Plus, to disable tracking of newsletters and in e-mails. It exists and with adblock you sleep peacefully.
- Auto Compress File, to automatically compress (based on parameters) the attachments of an email.
- Automatic Dictionary, to set up the language dictionary in e-mail. Require training and recognizes the email previously suggesting the dictionary. </ Li>
- Border Colors GT, to recognize the email you are using is colored with a different border in the writing window.
- Compact Header, to optimize the interface by hiding email items.
- Contact Tabs, adds a contact search field.
- Gravatars, to show the email gravatar.
- Send Later, to send emails by scheduling them.
- Nextcloud for Filelink, for uploading large files on Nextcloud using attachments.
- Show Folder Size, to show the size of the open folder on Thunderbird.
- Use BCC Instead, in case there are too many contacts in the email it automatically sets them as BCC.
- Xpunge, to empty the trash and spam and shrink the folders according to the configuration.
We are at the end!
