20 top add-ons that are ready for Firefox 3

add-ons, Firefox, Mozilla, Software, Work 83 Comments

Being involved with Firefox development and testing is both an honour and a privilege. The one major drawback to being on the bleeding edge of the Mozillaverse, however, is that none of your add-ons ever work. Sure, I’ve had the absolute joy of using the Smart Location Bar (aka: Awesomebar) for ages, but I’ve also been living without any of my add-ons for months. It’s been hard. Very, very hard.

Naturally, when faced with the choice between using the new Firefox 3 features with no add-ons and reverting to Firefox 2 and getting all my add-ons back, I stuck with Firefox 3. I’m not kidding when I say that Firefox 3 is better than Firefox 2 in pretty much every possible way. It’s awesome and there’s no way I’m going back. Now, however, I don’t have to choose one over the other — with the recent delivery of Firefox 3 Release Candidate 1, I get to have my cake and eat it too.

Release Candidate 1, you see, coincides with the addons.mozilla.org (AMO) site adding support for the final add-ons MaxVersion update. This means that all Firefox add-ons can now finally be updated such that they will work with the final release of Firefox 3. Lots of add-on developers have been waiting for this, so a huge number of add-ons are now getting updated. I spent yesterday going through the list and playing with some of my favourites, and it’s like Christmas has come seven months early.

I know a lot of folks are waiting for add-ons to get updated before diving in to help test the Firefox 3 release candidate, but now’s your chance. Dozens of add-ons are being updated to work with Firefox 3 every day, and there are hundreds already set to go. Here’s a list of 20 I’ve installed and checked out (arranged conveniently in alphabetical order):

Adblock Plus – This one does pretty much what it says on the box: Adblock blocks ads, and does so with grace and aplomb. This is one of the universals that pretty much every Firefox user I know has installed, and is one of the hardest to live without. Also updated for Firefox 3 is the Adblock Filterset.G Updater add-on companion for Adblock.

adblockplus

Download Statusbar – While the Firefox 3 download manager has been revamped, some folks have slightly more hardcore download requirements, which is where Download Statusbar comes in. Freshly updated for Firefox 3, this is one of the more popular Firefox add-ons out there.

downloadstatusbar

Faviconize Tab – This is the one add-on I really have a hard time living without, and I’m unbelievably happy it’s finally updated for Firefox 3. I danced a dance of joy when I was finally able to stop overriding my add-ons compatibility check (which is generally a terrible idea) and could actually install Faviconize Tab for real. Such a simple thing, but such an incredibly useful thing. I love this add-on.

faviconizetab

Firefox Companion for Ebay – I’m still a little afraid of Ebay (impulse shopping habits + credit card + 24hr access to a world of awesome things to buy = fear), but I do use the Companion to watch some of the more interesting auctions I run across.

ebay2

Flashblock – One of the more infuriating things about trying to read on the Web are the flippy flashy animated doodads that hover around the margins making it impossible to focus. This is pretty much what Flashblock is created to fix, blocking the animated fiddlybits until you click a button on each to display it. This is a vital sanity saver for me, and I’m really glad it’s updated now.

flashblock

FlashGot – If you do a lot of downloading, FlashGot is a must-have Firefox add-on. This being updated for Firefox 3 is going to save me a ton of time and mouseclicks.

flashgot

Forecastfox – Being Canadian and currently on the edge of summer, I’m a little obsessed with the weather these days. When it’s not raining, or cold, or too windy to stand up, or dark, it’s actually gorgeous out, and keeping close track of when that sun is going to shine is a vital part of day-to-day life in May. Forecastfox being ready for Firefox 3 means I don’t have to obsessive-compulsively reload the Environment Canada website any more.

forecastfox

GooglePreview – This is actually a “new to me” add-on that I discovered yesterday, but it’s really great. Again, it’s simple and unobtrusive, just quietly enhancing your Web experience without getting in your way. What it does is add a small preview thumbnail to your Google search results. It’s just neat.

googlepreview

Live HTTP Headers – This one’s for the Web Developers in the audience, as it lets you view the running stream of HTTP headers of the pages you browse. Very useful, and ready for Firefox 3.

livehttpheaders2

Mouse Gestures – This is another “new to me” add-on that I was playing with yesterday that may change how I use the Web. I never really thought much about mouse gestures until I started using them, and it turns out they’re actually pretty awesome. I’ll definitely be messing around with this one for a while to see if the novelty wears off, or whether it’ll be a long-term sort of add-on for me.

mousegestures

NoScript – NoScript is a hugely popular security-related add-on that gives Firefox users very fine-grained control over what JavaScript, Java, and executable content is allowed to run in the browser.

noscript

ScribeFire – Formerly known as “Performancing”, ScribeFire is a very cool and full-featured blog editor that integrates with Firefox. Now that it’s ready for Firefox 3 I’m going to start using it again — it makes sense to have a blog editor integrated with a browser, in my opinion, because blogging is so absolutely tied to the Web. ScribeFire has come a long way since its original launch, so if you haven’t checked it out lately, you should take it for a spin.

scribefire

Shareaholic – If you’re like me and spend a whole lot of time looking at things on the Web, you end up finding piles of things that you want to share with other folks. Shareaholic is a fantastic add-on for this, integrating with digg, del.icio.us, facebook, foxiewire, friendfeed, google bookmarks, google reader, magnolia, reddit, stumbleupon, tumbler, twitter, and more. Jay Meattle, the developer who also happened to win the Extend Firefox 2 contest with this add-on, has recently updated it to work with Firefox 3. And there has been much rejoicing.

shareaholic

Speed Dial – The Speed Dial feature was originally debuted by the Opera web browser, but several add-ons mimicking the functionality very quickly came available for Firefox. I like Speed Dial in particular because it’s very straightforward, super easy to customize, and is now completely up to date for Firefox 3.

speeddial

StumbleUpon – I didn’t actually start using this add-on until my Dad told me about it one day, and now I’m a bit of an addict. Be wary, however — StumbleUpon is a bit dangerous in that it can eat days of your life if you’re not careful. I’m just glad the toolbar can be toggled on and off, else I’d never get anything done. Fun stuff, extraordinarily popular, very slick.

stumbleupon

ThumbStrips – ThumbStrips creates a browseable graphical timeline of your surfing history that is displayed along the bottom of the browser. Originally I figured it would be like another, fancier version of tabs but it’s not that at all — it makes flipping back and forth through your recent browser history really easy, which can be great in situations when you’re checking out Google search results and so forth. Neat stuff.

thumbstrips

TwitterFox – Being slightly unnerved by social networking in general (FaceBook, LinkedIn, etc.) I generally don’t spend much time on such sites, but I’ve made an exception for Twitter. Twitter is simple and fun. It’s also useful, believe it or not, and (if you keep your “Following” list pared down sensibly) it can be super interesting and informative. TwitterFox is a neat little add-on that integrates Twitter right into Firefox that works well and generally does what you expect it to do.

twitterfox

Video DownloadHelper – If you’re interested in saving Web videos to your local machine — for example, to watch while on a plane or otherwise offline — Video DownloadHelper is a great add-on to use. Sites it works with include YouTube, MySpace, Google videos, DailyMotion, iFilm, and others.

videodownloadhelper

Web Developer Toolbar – Chris Pederick’s Web Developer Toolbar is one of the absolute must-have Firefox add-ons if you’re a Web Developer. It’s been around for years and puts a world of useful utilities at your fingertips, saving time, effort, and frustration.

webdevtoolbar

Wizz RSS Reader – If you’re a bit of a Webfeed junkie and LiveBookmarks aren’t enough, you’ll probably want to check out the Wizz RSS news reader add-on. By way of the sidebar, Wizz lets you subscribe to Webfeeds and quickly flip through new posts or updates to those sites. Wizz is, in my opinion, a great middle ground between LiveBookmarks and a full-featured desktop Webfeed client like Vienna.

wizzrss

So, there you have it — 20 top notch add-ons that are ready to go for Firefox 3. If you’re curious about Firefox 3 and would like to check out the Release Candidate and play with some of these, Friday afternoon seems like a perfectly reasonable time to do it.

Alex Polvi is doing a weekly update about the “State of the Add-ons” that need help getting updated for Firefox 3. If you’re an add-on developer (or would like to be one!) and would like to help, head over to Polvi’s blog and he’ll point you in the right direction.

    Actually Flashblock 1.5.unstable has been tracking trunk for ages. The reason I didn’t push it to AMO is that every new 3.0alpha or 3.0beta seems to break flashblock. Now that RC1 is out I felt that it was safe enough to freeze the unstable/development version and call it 1.5.6. But you could have lived on the bleeding edge of Flashblock development if you had installed the 1.5.unstable releases from mozdev instead.

    I use Minefield (Firefox 3pre) for among other reasons to test my favorite extensions for whether or not they will work in Minefield. Some of the developers work tirelessly to keep their extensions functionally compatible. It also helps developers like Philip who have betas of their extensions by at the very least identifying the specific patch(es) (regression range testing) that break their extensions. I’m sure they appreciate being able to more easily identify the issue and fix their extension quickly.

    So how do we disable the “Smart Location Bar” and go back to how FF2 works? It’s clever, but it’s not what I want. Between that and overwriting the frontmost tab when opening a group of tabs I’m finding it difficult to use FF3.

    Mouse gestures… After using Opera for my default browser for a while, I can say with some good certainty, that the novelty of mouse gestures might wear off, but only in the same manner which the novelty of having a GPS in your car would wear off. It will never cease to be there, you will continue to use it, and it will continue to be useful.

    My heart almost stopped when I upgraded to Ubuntu 8.04 and realized not all my add-ons had been converted for Firefox 3, which is the default browser with the distro. Luckily, by far and away the most useful extension is for my del.icio.us bookmarks. The del.icio.us sidebar is actually *more* useful than the website itself, since it allows you to sort your tabs and bookmarks by alphabet. I’m totally keyed in to having an online bookmark account (I’m regularly at 4 different computers, and it’s a lifesaver if I need to hop on someone else’s machine and get to a critical site), but I don’t care about the sharing aspect, and haven’t found a decent site to top del.icio.us, despite its shortcomings.

    Found your site via LifeHacker.

    Thanks for recommending these add-ons. There is so much choice when it comes to FF add-ons that it can be a time consuming process just going through the install-test-delete cycle.

    The only problem I’ve had has been with RC1 and web developer toolbar. For some reason FF would randomly fail to load up CSS and images for sites. I’ve temporarily disabled WD toolbar and the problem has gone away.

    Thanks for recommending these add-ons. There is so much choice when it comes to FF add-ons that it can be a time consuming process just going through the install-test-delete cycle.

    The only problem I’ve had has been with RC1 and web developer toolbar. For some reason FF would randomly fail to load up CSS and images for sites. I’ve temporarily disabled WD toolbar and the problem has gone away.

    The most important for all developers is firebug …..is elementary …. you miss it up on the list…….
    until the version for ff3 is not set up, some of us won’t install it.

    You should really consider adding ‘showcase’to the list…it’s awesome, and works with FF3.

    Still no TabMixPlus nor FireFTP. And the RedShift theme is not yet ready. However, FireFox V3RC2 is out!

    Since RedShift is not yet ready, I am using the “In The Dark” theme with Firefox V3. The “PitchDark” theme is also V3-ready and is another choice.

    The DownLoadStatusBar add-on is not working under Firefox V3 RC2, although it does install

    I went back to Firefox V2.

    I found that I could not download naything in FF3, something about my Security Zone Settings blocking it.

    It works fine in Firefox V2, though.

    I am back on Firefox V3 after researching and finding “the solution”. I say “the solution” because I do not like it. “The solution” is to go into Internet Explorer (IE) and under the tools/security/zones, modify the settings. It really sucks that Firefox deferred to Vista/IE for this.

    I uninstalled the FireFTP add-on and installed the stand-alone FileZilla FTP client.

    I only need the TabMizPlus add-on now!

    OK, Last post today unless something happens. I promise.

    I downloaded and installed a DEV build of the TabMixPlus add-on. It seems to work.

    So, I uninstalled Firefox 2.0.0.14 and am completely on Firefox 3.0 RC2 now.
