Favorite WebExtensions?

Re: the collection at post 38 please also consider Mozilla-featured extension Print Edit WE as a replacement for Print/Print Preview. Thanks.

Hi, one more, Tab Auto Reload also maps nicely to ReloadMatic (which I’m the developer of). Thanks!

For Sort Tabs, Extension Finder makes a non- specific recommendation:

Another specific recommendation:

Sort opened tabs and find duplicated

Five gold stars from me https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/sort-opened-tabs/reviews/950983/ and it’s probably one of my top ten extensions for Firefox Quantum.


All Tabs Helper is useful, but it occupies the sidebar. So for example, you’ll be unable to use All Tabs Helper alongside Tab Center Redux.

I prefer Sort opened tabs and find duplicated because (as shown in the screen recording) it can be used without obscuring any of the sidebars. Also because it presents a red alert, in the toolbar of Firefox, wherever there’s exact duplication in a window.

Even though there is a snaplinks plus version available, it is a bit buggy (and alrady a year old) without any new version in sight. If there is any decent alternative that lets me select as well normal links as well as images linking to somwhere, please let me know

I asked the FoxyLink developer to extend his as well to allow a user to copy both the text for the url and the url to the clipboard for multiple links at the same time. Also to allow the user to choice of opening the links in new tabs.

I use multi links plus currently and have been using it for years for various things. Mostly for work.

Do you know a non-WebExtension alternative for a legacy addon? Please comment here Alternatives to legacy add-ons that don’t have direct WebExtension ports

(Anonyme Anonyme) #117

Hi! I search another addons who will be compatible with the new FF57 to replace “Download Status Bar” et “Redirect Control”. Do you have an idea?

Instead of Undo Close Tab I would suggest Undo Close Tab Button as an alternative to Undo Closed Tab Button. While the button might not be as pretty as the currently proposed alternative the list function for recently closed tabs is better implemented, instead of having a menu nested in a menu to see more than 6 recently closed tabs you can see a maximum of 25 directly.

At the same time I would suggest Happy Right-Click as an alternative to Right to Click and Multi-Keywords Highlighter (firefox/addon/multi-keywords-highlighter) as an alternative to Multiple-Highlighter (firefox/addon/multiple-highlighter).

Unfortunately I’m not allowed to post more than 5 links so the last two links will have to fixed.

Just got a recommendation for FoxyImage to replace Flip or Rotate Image. (FoxyImage may also be a good replacement for other image rotators/flippers but I haven’t done too much investigating there.)

Hi @sdevaney! It seems the extension finder has not been updated for a while with the latest suggestions, could you take a look?

(sdevaney) #122

Hi @Jan7. Other than your recent recommendation (which I’ll happily investigate asap) the tool should be current. However please know that we have sometimes received multiple different replacement recommendations for a piece of content do we’ve been selective about which to choose. Do you see a glaring omission?

(Caitlin Neiman) #123


should be able to replace



@sdevaney, thanks for clarifying. I was referring to the 4 legacy extensions shared in a previous post. While checking some other suggestions made after that post, I’ve seen that none of them made it to the extension finder, that’s why I thought the list may be outdated. The ones I linked to map nicely to Search by Image in terms of features.

Looking for a replacement for DownThemAll!, ImTranslator and CacheViewer
Please help

(JudyB) #129

One of the things I liked best about Firefox is the clean interface - and now there’s a tab taking up unnecessary space at the top of each window, and my home page is full of stories about zombie ants and rats in Australia - eek! I expect I can find a way to clear the home page, but I really don’t like tabs, and hope you’ll add a version of Hide Tab Bar With One Tab - or anything else that gives me the option of removing or hiding them. Thank you.

(Martin Giger) #130

You can hide the tab bar using some custom CSS for now: https://vimeo.com/235127546

And you can clear the new tab with the settings cog in the top right of it, or remove the elements you don’t like.
