Favorite WebExtensions?

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

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?


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made after that post, I’ve seen that none of them made it to the extension finder, that’s why I thought the list may be outdated.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.

¡Hola @caitmuenster!

FWIW https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/close-tab-double-right-click/ sort of replaces https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/double-click-closes-tab/

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

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.

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.

Colorful Tabs is a direct 1:1 replacement of Colorful Tabs (legacy) :slight_smile:

Thanks - home page looks much better now! I’ll need more time to figure out the CSS - but I’m glad to know there’s something out there.

Try Bulk Media Downloader and S3.Translator for your first two replacements. As for CacheViewer I’m not aware of a good 1:1 replacement.

Katalon Recorder (Selenium IDE for Firefox 55+) replaces Selenium IDE and Selenium Expert.

A few hours after Firefox Quantum was released, I created a transition top ten collection. Three of ten are 57-compatible:

  • Conex, mentioned in earlier posts
  • Rename Tab Title
  • Vertical Tabs Reloaded.

Vertical Tabs Reloaded is outstanding for:

The non-webextension add-on Tab Counter which points to this find-replacements url : https://addons.mozilla.org/find-replacement/?guid=tabcounter@morac

Can be replaced by these two webextension add-ons


Will these mappings make it into the find-replacement mapping on AMO?

FoxyTab also has a built-in Tab counter which can be turned off/on

Forget Me Not is a web-extension which make the browser forget website data, except for the data you want to keep. It can serve as a replacement for Selective Cookie Delete and Self Destructing Cookies, but adds some more things you can clean, like local storage and more.


does anybody have an alternative for reminderfox? Especially for a reminder that appears every first friday of the month

Location Switcher was suggested as a recommendation for Server Switcher (legacy) by the Server Switcher dev.
