Favorite WebExtensions?

RESTED, RESTer, and RESTED APs have been suggested as replacements for RESTClient.

Hi @thaliel! I’m not seeing a direct 1:1 replacement for Reminderfox, but the developers have recommended the following options for users who want to keep their reminders:

  1. You can sync your current reminders with a remote calendar service, such as Google Calendar: http://www.reminderfox.org/remote-calendar-n/

  2. You can also export your calendar file and import into another calendar (like Outlook or Mozilla Lightning: http://www.reminderfox.org/documentation-user-guide-sharing-reminders/

“Try Bulk Media Downloader”?
Clearly you have not tried it yourself because if you had, you would not tell others to do so. Just read the reviews that people have left so far. Mozilla flat out screwed over so many users by killing Downthemall and giving us no replacement or options. Worst decision ever. Guess I’m switching to Chrome.

Hi, why is impossible? Please describe that and add a detailed feature request to make it possible.

To copy formatted links in HTML, Markdown, BBcode, etc. for the current page, as a replacement for:

we have:

Additionally when searching in the Finder for Make Link, the first proposition “Text Link WE” leads to a 404 https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/text-link-we/

Morning Coffee Quantum can replace Morning Coffee (legacy)

(sdevaney) #147

Yes indeed! Went with /tab-counter-webext/ as the replacement (the tool doesn’t offer multiple replacement recommendations, just one).

Thank you!

We already have Self-Destructing Cookies pointing to Cookie AutoDelete. But I’m really intrigued by Forget Me Not. I will personally keep an eye on its growth and development.

Email This is a replacement for Email This! (legacy). According to the listing, the legacy developer might still update to be compatible.


Not sure why there can be only one alternative, but I won’t start an argument here.

Is there anything speaking against adding it as alternative for Selective Cookie Delete, which is the one I used before and whose features are not matched by Cookie AutoDelete (and never will, the authors refuse this)

It can also be used as an alternative for Remove Cookie(s) for Site.

(since Cookie AutoDelete is also featured twice, I’m assuming it’s OK to list it as alternative for two extensions)

I’m glad you like it. Let me know if you find anything that can be improved.

I updated the tool to point Selective Cookie Delete and Remove Cookie(s) for Site to Forget Me Not. Thanks again!


On Linux (Ubuntu), I use a key-store namely gnome keyring with seahorse, in order to keep all my passwords into a single secure password vault
With firefox I was using GNOME Keyring integration in order to use them.

As GNOME Keyring integration is not compatible with Firefox Quantum, is there any alternatives in order to use Gnome keyring ?

Hello, I am a new WebExtensions developper and I just released my addon :

ScriptFilter https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/scriptfilteraddon

As a possible replacement for :
NoScript https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/noscript
YesScript https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/yesscript

I don’t have any review yet and I would like to know if it is good or if it needs some improvements so don’t hesitate to write a message. Thank you. Have a nice day :wink:

Just so you all know: You can use this little tweak to replace “Classic Theme Restorer”:

Generally in custom.css is very powerful, you can also use it to place your tab bar below the address bar or so. Anything is possible. :smile:

(rugk) #155

And NoScript is now also available as a WebExtension. New UI… but well… at least it works. (including its XSS blocker)

Measure-it can replace MeasureIt (legacy).


Web ScrapBook has some of the functionality of Mozilla Archive Format (MAF).


Hello, any suggestions for the following:

  • It’s All Text (incredibly useful)
  • TiddlyFox

And then for these that I’ve seen insufficient suggestions on:

  • Scrapbook / Scrapbook X (OneNote and Web Scrapbook are only close in concept, far off in execution)
  • Session Manager (this really ought to be in Firefox itself. It already supports restoring a crashed session, why not allow saving multiple session files with a name? That’s a pretty straight-forward feature.)
  • DownThemAll

To add to the discussion I did find that

  • “URLs List” is a mostly sufficient, albeit simpler, replacement for Copy URLs Expert

I was using “Copy as HTML Link” to make links to the current page. Now using “Copy as Markdown”.

YesScript -> NJS

Self-Destructing Cookies -> Cookie Auto-delete

For my Keyword Search add-on (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/keyword-search/) the replacement is https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/keyword-search-webextension/.

I’ve chosen not to upgrade folks right now, I’m just suggesting it (since the functionality is substantially different)
