Over the last 10+ years, I've written some Mozilla Firefox Add-ons which have achieved relatively decent popularity (currently ~270,000 users). Some were written to request, some for my personal use, and some just to learn something new.
You'll find all of these Add-ons available for install at the Mozilla Add-ons site.
- Image Toolbar
- Save, copy and print images with a single click.
- New Tab Homepage
- Loads your homepage when you open a new tab.
- Context Search
- Right click and search using a selection of search engines.
- Context Highlight
- Right click and highlight all instances of the selected word within the page.
- Foobar Controls
- Control the Foobar2000 MP3 player from your toolbar.
- Paste Quote
- Pastes text, surrounding it with [quote][/quote].
If you like using these Add-ons, please do send a small donation. I never really set out to make money from these projects (which is just as well, because I haven't!), but it's always nice to receive a small contribution towards hosting costs and evening/weekend hours that I used up to push out a fix.
The Firefox Add-ons I have written are open source and available on GitHub. If you have suggestions or find bugs, then please raise issues in the relevant GitHub projects. If you are a programmer, feel free to fork and contribute.
