Firefox Extensions: Your favorite or most useful

<< < (127/191) > >>

Cuffy:
My interest in extensions was limited to one that would defeat HTGs "lazyload". Once the subject was opened I got the idea that many people were looking for particular extensions, as I was, and sources were drying up.
That user script mirror was advertising 137,000 user scripts with no search available. Having used WinHT in the past I decided to give it a shot. After 3 hrs and 20 mins downloading, thousands of 404s. thousands of 0 byte files, and Avast going stark, raving ape, blocking malware, I stopped and checked my bounty.
Scripts going back to 2005, plus the other problems made the decision to dump the whole package really easy.
Just pulling down .js files was an idea. Plugged it in again and what I got this time was no better.
The scripts come down identified by a number, user script.xxxxxx.js, with no way to know what you were looking at. Dumped the whole package again!
There is nothing at that mirror site that's of any value, or use, to anyone! Game over! :(

Curt:
I am very grateful for the mirror-userscript "site". It is merely a static picture from the beginning of June 2014, but it is so much better than no userscripts at all. I am especially pleased with KarmaDecay "Reverse image search of Reddit": http://karmadecay.com/browser-tools

Back to what this thread is about. Here is my newest list from Pale Moon 24.5 > Add-ons Manager > Extension List Dumper:

((as time is passing, more and more addons are said to be outdated. However, if you begin with installing Nightly Tester Tool (from https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/nightly-tester-tools/ ) and click "force compatibility", all will be well; the old addons are not too old! The biggest problem may be the growing number of abandoned homepages that I have not (yet) replaced with the equivalent Mozilla link))

It is working fine, but because Download Statusbar not has been updated for 2½ years, I have now replaced it with been testing the more advanced Download Status Bar, https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/download-status-bar. I'll stay with the abandoned for a while. The new boy in town is https://addons.mozilla.org/da/firefox/addon/s3download-statusbar/

Cuffy:
Curt, you must be a Wizard??  :huh:

137,000 scripts on that site and NO search.
How do you find anything?
Over 5,000 pages to scroll through  :down:

bob99:
Curt, thanks for your list. I recently changed to PaleMoon and will be checking these out.

IainB:
This could be a very useful Firefox add-on for those US users who want to "follow the money": Install Greenhouse | Expose Political Corruption

Very nifty.
