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.
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.
Basically the same as Ghostery but for double the security I have both installed.
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.
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.
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).
