[Yhslug] using linky firefox extension

Since at least one of us has been in an extension-sharing mood
in recent days... I thought I'd chime in with a chorus of "a
few of my favorite things". Some of the extensions I've found
sage: A better RSS Feed handler than Firefox's built-in
Live Bookmarks. (Using Sage's export/import feature,
you can easily share your favorite feeds with others.)
mozex: Among other things, allows you to use the editor of
your choice when working with web form entry fields.
This is really great when editing wiki pages. Naturally
my preference for this extension is setup to use the
One True Editor ;-)
Web Developer: If you do your own web pages (or want to
learn how someone else has done theirs), just get it.
wmlbrowser: Occasionally, one stumbles across a page that
can only be viewed from a mobile device... unless you
have something like this which displays WML (Wireless
Full Fullscreen: Guess what it does. ;-) (Goes beyond what
F11 will do for you.)
Less exciting but handy are ReminderFox, ForecastFox and
ChatZilla, which pretty much do what their names suggest: A
pop-up reminder, a weather forecaster, and an IRC client.
For those of you not using rsync to synchronize your computers,
Google's Browser Sync extension looks promising. And Gmail
Notifier's handy as well.
Last but not least, the incredible time-waster: StumbleUpon,
which randomly directs you toward fun web pages, and learns your
preferences for what you consider "fun".
enigmail: A must-have for making GPG handy to use.
Mail Redirect: "Bounces" mail rather than forwarding it.
Mnenhy: An ugly name for a very featureful extension that allows
you to design your own custom headers, and decide which headers
to display on a regular basis. Also handles x-faces headers.
Display MUA: (Actually "Display Mail User Agent Extension" puts
an icon into messages you read, indicating which mail program
the sender used.
If any of those sound like your cup of tea, and you have trouble
finding the ones you want, send me e-mail and I can provide more
details, but I think most of them were obtained directly from
Mozilla's web site.
