Thanks to Stainless, my hard-headed and stubborn azz finally got around to trying out Firefox web browser. Loving it so far!

So to the folks that use it - What are your favorite Add-Ons?

So far, I've only got 'Awesome Screen Shot Plus'. Pretty neat. Have only played with it for a few minutes (Wife's at work so I'm watching football, and drinking beer too Laughing ), but works much better than the IE version.

Anyone see fire fox was just the final Jeopardy answer? Very Happy

"The Final Jeopardy question (9/26/2013), in the category 'The Internet' was:

The animal for which this computer program is named is actually a red panda."

My wife knew the correct answer. I didn't get it.

The only two I have are:

Forecast Fox - Weather toolbar

HTTPS: Everywhere - Web Encryption

I have used the weather toolbar for years and HTTPS for 6 months or so.

Cool, thanks guys. I'll check all of those out. The 'User Agent Switcher' sounds particularly good as I was on some site last night and it locked up because I wasn't running IE Evil or Very Mad .

I tried Chrome a couple of years ago and didn't like it. Maybe it's changed, but I'm pretty damn happy with Firefox for now.

You ought to stay a couple of releases back from latest release. Sometimes they release it without working all of the bugs out of it.

After many years, I have dumped it at home for Chrome. Every update seems to have an issue and is quickly followed by version *.0.01.
