Re: Firefox add-ons

Can I suggest people try InfoLister which will produce BBcode of all you extensions with complete descriptions (and clickable links to the add-ins where it can):
Here's my list:
Extensions (enabled: 17, disabled: 1; total: 18)

  • British English Dictionary 1.19 [br]
  • Copy Plain Text 0.3.3 [br]Copies text without formatting
  • DOM Inspector 1.8.1.6 [br]Inspects the structure and properties of a window and its contents.
  • Fasterfox 2.0.0 [br]Performance and network tweaks for Firefox.
  • Firebug 1.05 [br]Web Development Evolved
  • FireFTP 0.97 [br]FTP Client for Mozilla Firefox.
  • FlashGot 0.6.1 [br]Enables single and massive ("all" and "selection") downloads using the most popular external download managers for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and FreeBSD (dozens currently supported, see Extension's Home Page for details). FlashGot offers also a Build Gallery functionality which helps to synthetize full media galleries in one page from serial contents originally scattered on several pages, for easy and fast "download all".
  • InfoLister 0.9f [br]Lists installed extensions and themes
  • Java Console 6.0.01 [disabled][br]
  • JavaScript Debugger 0.9.87 [br]
  • PageZoom 0.3.3 [br]Adds page zoom functionality.
  • PDF Download 0.8.1 [br]Allows to choose what you want to do with a PDF file: download it, view it with an external viewer or view it as HTML!
  • Print/Print Preview 0.4 [br]Replace the default "Print" button with the Mozilla Suite style "Print/Print Preview" toolbar button/menu. Adds new options to context menu as well.
  • Style Sheet Chooser II 1.5.0.5 [br]Choose author-provided alternate style sheets.
  • Tabbrowser Preferences 1.3.1.1 [br]Enhances control over some aspects of tabbed browsing.
  • Talkback 2.0.0.6 [br]Sends information about program crashes to Mozilla.

I think "fasterfox" was one that appeared on Slashdot as an extension to avoid 🙂  Since I have a PAYG account, it would cost me too much cash!

The Enhanced Prefetch feature is the culprit and should be turned off as it does really nasty things. The rest of it is fine.
N.B. Anyone running websites should put the following in their robots.txt file (irrespective of whether they use fasterfox themselves):
User-agent: Fasterfox
Disallow: /

Ah yes, Pre-Fetching - an easy way to delete things from many badly-written websites.
