My Firefox Extensions
It struck me this morning that it may be useful or, perhaps interesting, to archive the Extensions I currently use in Firefox. The extensibility of browsers today is fantastic.
- Bitwarden - Password Manager
- Decentraleyes - Privacy tool which works by attempting to block unneccessary calls to content distribution networks.
- Easy Screenshot - Tool to easily snag screenshots of pages. I primarily use it to snag photos of complete pages where it scrolls down and screepcaps and then stitches them together.
- Facebook Container - Forces Facebook and Instagram pages into their own container, this blocks them from tracking you across the web.
- Feed Preview - It returns and enhances the ability to preview RSS feeds.
- Firefox Multi-Account Containers - I live and die by multi-containers in Firefox. The majority of it is so that I can easily differentiate Work and Personal credentials, etc. But I use it for all sorts of things.
- Firefox Translations - Mostly so I can test and experiment with Mozilla's local translation tool, meaning it doesn't interface with Google etc. Overall it's good, but not perfect.
- GIPHY for Firefox - Honestly, I use it largely to enable quick and easy gif access for posting on Mastodon.
- Privacy Badger - Privacy tool from EFF. It's not as good as it used to be, but it still blocks some tracking tools.
- Reddit Enhancement Suite - As a longtime Redditor, and I use the old layout still, it enables and enhances a bunch of functions on Reddit.
- Return YouTube Dislike - Using the API, it allows me to see the dislikes on YouTube videos.
- Simple Translate - Integrates with Google's Translate for easy on-the-fly translation.
- Soundfixer - It allows me to manage volumes for individual tabs in Firefox, very useful for my laptop which has dinky speakers and I want to boost the tab's volume over 100%
- Sticky Window Containers - Another tool for the account containers, this one has tabs in a window open in the same container as the first tab in the window. This also lets me easily do the work/home split.
- uBlock Origin - The best ad blocker ever
- Unpaywall - Legally find free access to academic articles.
