Recommended Firefox Extensions

With time I have collected a few Firefox extension to make my browsing experience more safe and tools to support my development work or for daily life. In general I have to say that the more extensions you have installed the more memory your browser will allocate. This can be problematic on older slow systems. So keep it to a minimum of extension.


  • NoScript
    The best security you can get in a web browser!
    Allow active content to run only from sites you trust, and protect yourself against XSS other web security exploits.
  • Disconnect
    Basically the same as Ghostery but for double the security I have both installed.
  • Decentraleyes
    Protects you against tracking through "free", centralized, content delivery. It prevents a lot of requests from reaching networks like Google Hosted Libraries, and serves local files to keep sites from breaking. Complements regular content blockers.
  • Ghostery
    Prevents a page from loading tracking sides and from placing an cookie within the browser.
  • ?_ Neat URL
    Remove garbage from URLs.
  • uBlock Origin
    Finally, an efficient Ad blocker. Easy on CPU and memory.
  • Skip Redirect
    Some web pages use intermediary pages before redirecting to a final page. This add-on tries to extract the final url from the intermediary url and goes there straight away if successful.
  • Disable WebRTC
    WebRTC leaks your actual IP addresses from behind your VPN, by default.


  • DownThemAll!
    A simple tool that allows you to instantly download all links from within a web page. Additionally it breaks up the download of an file in more pieces and downloads them separately and therefore faster.
  • Auto Reload
    Especially useful for local developed site templates this extension reloads an page automatically if it detects any change in the source code.
  • Send to Kodi
    Sends YouTube videos, video and music links to Kodi for playback. Adds a right click menu for links pointing to YouTube and audio/video files for direct playback on your TV with Kodi.
    Works with all versions of Kodi (tested up to v17.1 Krypton).
