5 Best Extensions For Firefox 2

Recommended Posts

The latest major update of Mozilla Firefox incorporates functionality from the most popular extensions for the previous version. So, what will the future bring? To use the potential features of the next version of Firefox today, install the Firefox 2 extensions that won the hearts of Download.com editors Seth Rosenblatt and Peter Butler.


Why bother switching to another application to manage your music player when you've got this extension? This summer's update to version 2 added a host of Web functionality, such as searching for artists, photos, lyrics and albums on a variety of sites.

Tab Mix Plus

Don't like the new close button on each tab? Do you miss the multiple rows of tabs when they exceeded the width of your screen? This add-on can change those settings and almost everything else associated with tabs. Use your scroll wheel to browse through open tabs, or control tab switching via mouse gestures.

MR Tech Local Install

Not only will this extension-manager extension give you comprehensive control over all aspects of your add-ons, it can override the MaxVersionNumber of older extensions that haven't been updated for version 2. It's worth installing for the "Restart Firefox" functionality alone.

Download Statusbar

Download Statusbar takes the idea of the Download Manager, sticks it in a minimizable toolbar, and then tacks on some cool functionality. From the full mode, you can rename or delete downloaded files, or copy the source URL to the clipboard. Mini-mode changes the app to an unobtrusive progress monitor, with the full mode a click away.

With this option-laden weather-monitoring plug-in, you can choose between Celsius or Fahrenheit, create different location profiles and adjust when and how the extended forecast appears. There also are customizable icons, optional labels, day and night settings, and ForecastFox even differentiates between today's forecast and current conditions.

forecast fox enhanced

Has forecastfox been fixed so that it doesn't hog system resources? Before, if I left a browser window open all night, the computer would be running really slow in the morning. I uninstalled forecastfox, and the problem went away.

I have two more to add;

Customize Google

Allows users to search Google using the new "Google Suggests", and also adds links to Yahoo, MSN, etc. for search results. It also lets you filter out what you do not want as search results; "Bizrate.com" for example, which is just a bunch of advertisements.


Download Toolbar

Just a nice, and neat little toolbar that rests at the bottom of the Firefox window that holds all your downloads instead of a pop-up Download Window. I think it keeps everything a bit more organized, and lets you keep track of your download status at a glance.
