Best Firefox Extensions
Table of Contents
Welcome to my comprehensive guide on the best Firefox extensions to supercharge your browsing experience! As one of the most popular web browsers, Firefox offers a remarkable level of flexibility and customization through its vast extension ecosystem. These extensions are like small add-ons that can enhance various aspects of your browsing, ranging from productivity and privacy to aesthetics and tailored experiences on platforms like YouTube and Reddit.
This extension provides the ability to work with tabs as “trees”.
New tabs opened from the current tab are automatically organized as “children” of the current tab. Such “branches” are easily folded (collapsed) by clicking on the arrow shown in the “parent” tab, so you no longer need to suffer from too many visible tabs. If you want, you can restructure the tree via drag and drop.
Simple Tab Groups works across browser instances/windows too. If you select a group in another window, the selected window will jump to the foreground with the chosen group selected. You can even select the specific tab within that group in background browser windows.
The Firefox Multi-Account Containers extension lets you carve out a separate box for each of your online lives – no more opening a different browser just to check your work email!
DownThemAll will help you select, queue, sort and run your downloads faster. It comes with advanced ways to select what links to download, and will remember your previous decisions so that you can queue more downloads with just One Click!
Advanced users will also like using renaming masks, which let you automatically assign names (and even sub-folders within your downloads folder), fast-filtering or even custom, re-usable filters.
SingleFile is an add-on for Firefox Desktop and Mobile that helps you to save an entire webpage* including images, styling, frames, fonts etc. as a single HTML file*.
This extension creates a context menu item in Firefox. When you click on this menu item, the previously selected text is sent to Google Translate for translating or to Google TTS for listening pronunciation. You can setup the default languages for translation on the options page.
An efficient wide-spectrum content blocker. Easy on CPU and memory.
Spoof websites trying to gather information about your web navigation—like your browser type and operating system—to deliver distinct content you may not want.
Privacy Badger automatically learns to block invisible trackers. Instead of keeping lists of what to block, Privacy Badger automatically discovers trackers based on their behavior.
This extension will automatically remove tracking elements from URLs to help protect your privacy when browsing through the Internet.
LocalCDN is a web browser extension that emulates Content Delivery Networks to improve your online privacy. It intercepts traffic, finds supported resources locally, and injects them into the environment. All of this happens automatically, so no prior configuration is required.
Facebook Container works by isolating your Facebook identity into a separate container that makes it harder for Facebook to track your visits to other websites with third-party cookies.
Google Container works by isolating your Google identity into a separate container that makes it harder for Google to track your visits to other websites with third-party cookies.
It is a fork of the Facebook Container addon.
Quality of Life
The EU regulations require that any website using tracking cookies must get user’s permission before installing them. These warnings appear on most websites until the visitor agrees with the website’s terms and conditions. Imagine how irritating that becomes when you surf anonymously or if you delete cookies automatically every time you close the browser.
This add-on will remove these cookie warnings from almost all websites! You can report any website which still warns you about cookies: just click ‘Report a cookie warning’ from the extension menu (the brown cookie image next to your address bar).
