Conheça 12 truques para o Firefox 3


Adblock Plus: Advertisement blocker, plus the automatic blacklist updater. I used to have Adblock Filterset.G Updater installed, but apparently the project died.

AddBookmark Here 2: in each bookmark/favorite folder, it adds a “Add Bookmark Here” option, to add the current page to that folder.

All-In-One Sidebar: It adds a vertical sidebar with buttons, giving you a single-click access point to history, bookmarks, themes, extensions, and anything else you might be willing to put there. Very handy.

Better Flickr: A compilation of useful Greasemonkey scripts for Flickr.

Better YouTube: A compilation of useful Greasemonkey scripts for YouTube.

CustomizeGoogle: CustomizeGoogle is a Firefox extension that enhance Google search results by adding extra information (like links to Yahoo,, MSN etc) and removing unwanted information (like ads and spam). All features are optional and easily configured.

Download Statusbar: show the downloads on a temporary status bar. Neat!

Email This! Bookmarklet Extension: Email This! will send your recipient the link, title, and a selected summary of the webpage you are viewing.

Extended Copy Menu: Provides the option to copy selection as plain text or html.

Fasterfox Lite: Performance and network tweaks for Firefox. 1.5 – 3.0.3 This Fasterfox was edited from the fasterfox 2.0.0 to work with FireFox 3.0.3.

Fission: takes the progress bar out of the status bar in the bottom, and into the address area in the navigation toolbar. It opens more space on the status bar, although it doesn’t look too good with some themes.

Forecastfox: Weather forecast, with a very complete locations database. Even Sumaré, SP, Brazil (a.k.a. No-one-cares-about-land) shows up there 😉

FoxClocks: FoxClocks lets you keep an eye on the time around the world – or just your local time – by putting small clocks in your statusbar. Choose from a set of useful time formats or create your own – custom formats are easy to create and very flexible.

FoxyProxy: you can set a list of different proxies and assign different sites (using match patterns) to each proxy.

Gmail S/MIME: Send and receive signed and encrypted messages in Gmail.

Google Gears: These are the gears that power the tubes! 🙂

Greasemonkey: User scripts manager. It allows one to create scripts to do a lot of things, like modifying the pages you see.

HttpFox: An HTTP analyzer addon for Firefox.

Live HTTP headers: Vew HTTP headers of a page and while browsing.

NoScript: Javascript, Java, Flash and other junk blocker.

PDF Download: When clicking on a PDF file, it opens a box asking what you want to do: download it, see it, etc..

QuickRestart: Adds a “Restart Firefox” item to the “File” menu.

Read it Later: Read It Later allows you to save pages of interest to read later. It eliminates cluttering of bookmarks with sites that are merely of a one-time interest.

Screen grab: It will save what you can see in the window, the entire page, just a selection, a particular frame… basically it saves webpages as images.

Tab Mix Plus: a multi-functional extension. I use it to: add Duplicate Tab / Duplicate in New Window; Undo Close Tab; to make the close tab button on each tab (with a time delay – it is invisible, but if you hover the mouse over the tab for some moments the close button appears) and other nice features. 🙂 Create disposable email addresses.

User Agent Switcher: Adds a menu and a toolbar button to switch the user agent of the browser.
