Mozilla Firefox What extensions can be added to the browser?
Mozilla Firefox without add-ons is a rather boring and uninteresting browser, not impressive either in speed or functionality. However, after installing additional plug-ins, it turns into a super-harvester that brings real pleasure when working on the Web. Installing add-ons is quite simple.
Go to the “Tools” menu, then open the “Add-ons” and click on the “Get Extensions” tab. You can search in your favorite, recommended add-ons or click on the “View all add-ons” link and select everything you need there, you can enter the name of the desired add-on in the search bar.
There are several thousand additions for all occasions for any purpose, new ones are created every day. But you should not get involved in them, a large number of installed plugins will slow down the browser. Probably, first of all, you should install Adblock Plus – a utility that prevents all jumping, blinking and sparkling on the pages of the site from loading, which can significantly save traffic. For this extension, there are a large number of custom filters to block various ads and dangerous domains.
The Adblock Plus Pop-up Addon installed with it will allow you to apply Adblock Plus filters to pop-ups. Fasterfox add-on increases page loading speed by changing browser network settings. With this add-on, Mozilla Firefox is not far behind in speed from the beloved Opera of many. Also increases the speed of the browser PlacesCleaner – an extension created to clean up the Firefox database. In the settings of this add-on, you can set automatic cleaning every, say, 7 days and safely forget about it, the add-on will periodically clear the browser memory. Many people save the workspace of the monitor and hide the taskbar, and then FoxClocks will come in handy.
It shows the time, day of the week, day, month, year. All this can be customized to your liking, in addition, you can set the time anywhere in the world, which is especially useful for those who communicate with correspondents from different time zones.

It is also easy to translate the entire page in one click on the icon. FireGestures add-on is designed to control the browser using mouse gestures.
