Firefox Poweruser Addons

The addons that I find useful when using Firefox


  • Dark Reader

    Free Mac Windows Linux Chrome Safari ... Thunderbird Firefox Website

    This changed browsing the web for me forever. Before I would hunt down styles for websites I liked, now I mostly just let Dark Reader take care of it.

  • Stylus

    Free Mac Windows Linux Chrome Opera ... Firefox Website

    Some websites have better themes available through Stylus, in which case I will use that over Dark Reader.

  • Tree Style Tab

    Free Mac Windows Linux Firefox Website

    My number one reason for using Firefox. I enjoyed this approach to browsing with Vivaldi, and this is like a refined version.

  • uMatrix

    Free Mac Windows Linux Chrome Opera ... Chromium Firefox Website

    Will break many websites by default, but by using it you gain a better understanding of how the web works and can control your experience. To use it with Decentraleyes you need to whitelist CDNs in uMatrix's dashboard.

    Avoid unnecessary centralized network resources, just load them localy.

  • Smart HTTPS

    Automatically changes HTTP addresses to the secure HTTPS, and if loading encounters error, reverts it back to HTTP.

  • Canvas Defender

    Free Mac Windows Linux Firefox Website

    As you browse the internet, sites you visit can attempt to take screenshots of your computer as a pixel-by-pixel unique digital "fingerprint" of you & and your devices. This is called canvas fingerprinting. This can risk your privacy, even if you're browsing anonymously, e.g. from behind a VPN or using the Tor network.

    Canvas defender is a Firefox addon that tries to defeat such tracking by adding random noise to your the screen capture. This has no effect on your online experience. This addon is different to others, in that it does not attempt to block the fingerprinting altogether, but rather to confuse it.

    Instead of completely blocking canvas fingerprinting, Canvas Defender add-on creates a unique and persistent noise that hides your real canvas fingerprint. This add-on protects you while browsing both in normal and private mode.

  • Offline QR Code Generator

    Free Web Firefox Website

    A browser add-on that allows you to quickly generate a QR code offline with the URL of the open tab or any (selected) other text!

    It works completely offline protecting your privacy. However, you can still enjoy features like colored QR codes!.

  • Bitwarden

    Freemium Mac Windows Linux Web Android ... iPhone Android Tablet iPad Self-Hosted Microsoft Edge Vivaldi Browser Chrome Microsoft SQL Server Tor Browser Bundle Safari Cloudron Opera Mono Brave Firefox Website

    My preferred solution to managing passwords across devices relatively securely.

     

    Bitwarden icon
  • Auto Tab Discard

    Free Web Microsoft Edge Chrome Opera Firefox Website

    Auto Tab Discard a lightweight extension that uses the native method (tabs.discard) to unload or suspend browser tabs to significantly reduce the memory footprint of your browser when many tabs are opened.

     

    Auto Tab Discard icon
  • Neat URL

    Free Web Vivaldi Browser Chrome Firefox Website

    Neat URL cleans URLs, removing parameters such as Google Analytics' utm parameters.

Onetab is SUCH a life saver!

Question: is there any great difference between uBlock Origin and Nano Adblocker? Just curious, as I use the former and wasn't familiar with the latter.

Outstanding list, very handy. If I may, there are a few other add-ons I use and really like, maybe you'd find them handy as well:

Small KeePassXC iconKeePassXC Mozilla extention.

Small WhatFont iconWhatFont

Small Privacy Badger iconPrivacy Badger

Small Terms of Service Didn't Read iconTerms of Service Didn't Read

Small Wikiwand iconWikiwand

Small CanvasBlocker iconCanvasBlocker

Thanks once more for the list!
