Now that I have a faster puter (Dell Optiplex 990 -Windows 7 with 10 GB memory) I find that more extensions are fine. Firefox still crashes sometimes, but I just bring it back up. And if I anticipate a problem, I do a Restart (e.g. extension Restartless Restart). And I keep an external Firefox kill shortcut nearby that uses PsKill. And Session Manager.
The first 10 are the most fundamental, basic extensions are:
Linkman (although I use the Dropbasket)
Tab Mix Plus
Download Manager S3
Open IT Online
Cleanest AddonManager and/or Slim Add-ons Manager
Telify and Skype Click-to-call
Avast Online Security and Bluhell Firewall.
unmask and/or Unhide Passwords.
The Add-on Bar (restored)
There are a bunch more installed that I am considering and a bunch more I am considering to install!
Hmm... Now I'll have to really read the thread!
Here is my current tweak.
Tab Set Saver and Tab Mix Plus
Normally I have TMP at five rows. For this tweak I may set it higher. First I do my normal stuff of setting up a page of many related open windows, in this example it is Windows Tweaks. I move any oddball stuff out. Then I save it as a set using TSS to a special folder on disk. Then delete the window. Then bring up the TSS page up. (On the TSS extension discussion, I suggested automating these steps.) I can then have multiple related TSS pages. Voila! 25+ visual links grouped together in one open page. Memory minimal and organization assistance. This can be done with my main work and social pages as well, as an alternative to Xerpi and other bookmark and Start Page ideas.
If you have tools that accomplish this type of idea better, please share away
This creates a simple .html file, which I can also upload.
