I found a cool extension called called ListZilla that exports a list of extensions and themes in either vB code, text or HTML format. I thought it'd be cool to see what extensions others use, and maybe find a few new ones to meet your needs. Download the ListZilla extension and post your extensions. :thumbsup:


Here's my list, as output by ListZilla: (I edited out the [sub] tags, as they do nothing.)


Enabled Extensions: (20)

BBCode 0.3.7 - Adds BBCode to the context menu for forums like Mozillazine (PHPBB and others). Based on Cussers pastequote extension.
Bookmarks Synchronizer 1.0.1 - Bookmarks Synchronizer is a Mozilla Firefox extension that let you connect to an FTP/WebDAV server and synchronize your bookmarks that are stored in an XML file. Setup is easy; just write in your FTP/WebDAV server address, username, password and a name for the XML file (by default called xbel.xml). To start, press Upload to create the file on the server and set if you want to automatically download the file on startup or upload it when you close your browser.

Close Tab On Double Click 0.1.2 - When a tab is double clicked, the tab will close

That's exactly why I'm still running 1.0RC, I'll update when all my extensions work.

From what I can see... Duplicate Tab, Undo Close Tab, miniT (drag+indicator), and Close Tab On Double Click functionality is all included in the Tabbrowser Extensions.

They are, but it only offers limited functionality. The seperate extensions offer more options, at least last time I checked. I have an older version of TB though, as I'm still running 1.0rc, because some of my extensions haven't upgraded yet. The mouse gestures ext I use makes it worth waiting for.

Either 1) right click the extension, save it to your desktop, then drag it into the browser windows, or 2) click the “settings” button on the far right of that bar when it pops up and add the site to the allowed list.
