Firefox add-ons I actively use

It’s been a while since I posted the Firefox Add-ons that I’m using. Here’s an update:

  • Fast Video Download for downloading YouTube videos in MP4 format
  • FaviconizeTab for compressing the size of tabs to the size of a favicon by double-clicking. There’s also an option to auto-faviconize tabs depending on the URL.
  • Firebug helps me a lot with web development.
  • Page Speed for diagnosing the performance of my web projects.
  • Screengrab for saving web pages as PNG or JPEG. There’s option to save the whole page, the visible section, a selection or the whole window.
  • Tiny Menu for compressing my menu bar to give me more browsing space.
  • Xmarks for synchronizing my bookmarks between machines and browsers (since there’s also Xmarks for Chrome).
  • Echofon for Twitter.
  • Delicious Bookmarks for one-click saving of bookmarks to my Delicious account.
  • DownThemAll! for mass downloading stuff.
  • Dummy Lipsum for generating “Lorem Ipsum” dummy text.

Similar to how I configured my Fedora 10 installation, I selected both Web Development and Web Server options when asked what additional tasks I want my system to support, to make my post-installation setup easier.

I also selected the following packages during installation:

Desktop Environment

  • KDE (K Desktop Environment)


  • Fedora Eclipse
  • Java Development


  • MySQL Database
  • PostgreSQL Database

And here are my post-installation configurations:
