1. Webmail Notifier:
This is one of the most useful tool I ever came across. It can check mails from: Daum, Naver, Empas, Nate, Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail and many more with scripts.
We can also check mails from multiple accounts at the same domain like Hotmail or Gmail. So if I will to have 5 hotmail accounts and 8 Gmail accounts, it could check mail from all accounts, NOT 1!.


2. CSS Viewer:
Well, this is only for HTML/CSS learners or professional. This give a view of the CSS in the page. Example, Click on the button to activate it.
Then after clicking on it, it will turn like this:
After clicking this, hover the cursor around the area where you want to clearify what CSS has been used there.

3. DownloadHelper:
One of the best tool to download videos immediately. With a click, the video will start downloading when the destination is located. Able to download some music.

4. DownThemAll!:
Best downloading tool I ever saw. Can locate files used in website and links too. Can download with a easy outlook.
You can also filter to massive download a file type. This is very useful to me as I like to download other's skin to examine..xD
Also there is a better function than Mozilla Built-in Download Manager.
It has the speed examiner.
>Comes with a average speed examiner--(This is usually does not give accurate results...)
Most recommended tool to download files.

5. Foxtab
One of the best tool to be recommended. Look through all your tabs with 5 different easy looks.

The above view is the 1 tab per view.
(5th option from the right bottom corner.)

The above view is the 3 tabs per view. - I only have 2 at that time....
(4th option from the right bottom corner.)
The above view is the 6 tabs per view.
(3rd option from the right bottom corner.)
The above view is the 15 tabs+ per view.
(2nd option from the right bottom corner.)
The above view is the 3 tabs overlapping per view.
(1st option from the right bottom corner.)
This allows us to browse through all our tabs easily.

6. JSView - Only for Html/Css/Java users...
This is a great tool for browsing html files/ css files or even javascript. Recommended and please download if you are a Html/Css/Java users only.

7. Locationbar²:
Quite a useful tool to view the subdomains or domain of a website as the address bar will fade off except for the main domain. Eg:

8. Personas for firefox:
Best and most recommendation. Allows the user to change with a live preview before changing a skin.

9. Session manager:
Great tool if browser crash. Can restore session like before. Recommended to all.

10. Site Launcher:
A add-on that aids in shortcuts...
Example:

11. SkipScreen
A free Firefox add-on that lets you skip all the clicking and waiting on sites like RapidShare, Zshare, MegaUpload, and Sharebee. Your downloads start instantly.

12. Surf Canyon:
Saw a arrow and a target? Yes...that's Surf Canyon similar and recommended site of what you have searched for...It's basically a useful research tool

13. Tab Scope:
This allows a sneak preview of the tab when browsing another tab. A zoom in function is also available.

14. WebMail Ad Block:
Using this, it allows blockage of ads from hotmail, gmail and yahoo mail. It clears up hell lot of space. Recommended add on to install.

15. WOT:
This is going to be the last part..Glad to tell you...WOT is a add-on that can monitor the risk of website that you are visiting. Also, Freedomstar is 14th in the whole world in the ranking and I am currently 4th...(Not deciding to improve my score for now...). It is strongly recommended as the reason is below: (You may have seen this before)
So, having WOT may reduce the 9 days of risk to maybe 1. Protect yourself, do the right thing at the right time.

  1. Great list of add-ons. I use many of them right now. I have also went back to using Personas after the last update as the buttons now look correct.
