Firefox Extensions: Your favorite or most useful

<< < (24/192) > >>

Extension does more but actually all you need is a few lines in userchrome.css to combine stop/reload:

/* combine STOP and RELOAD buttons ------ */
#stop-button[disabled="true"] { display:none; }
#stop-button:not([disabled]) + #reload-button { display:none; }

Be sure stop button is to the left of reload before you apply or it wont work. Possibly the other way round  8)

There are also tricks/extensions for hiding tab-bar/toolbars, like bookmark bar only show when you hover mouse at menu bar for example. Annoying but some like it.

Miniflat is plain ugly  8) Matter of taste but Littlefox is more designed for maximum pixels 

Autohidestatusbar gives you more pixels, works very well

TinyMenu helps too.

Think I have 40 or 45 extensions. A few have not been mentioned or they will be again...
