Essential Mozilla Firefox/Thunderbird Extensions (Part II)

Here’s the second, completed part of my list about Mozilla Firefox and Mozilla Thunderbird extensions and hints I find very useful for my daily work (and yours too, possibly ;):

Essential Mozilla Firefox extensions

Web Developer

Other hints for Mozilla Firefox:

  • Click with the middle mouse button to open a link on a new tab
  • Click with the middle mouse button on a tab to close it
  • Hit CTRL-p to print a page which is loaded in a new window without any menu or toolbar displayed
  • How to make Firefox silently display error pages (like in IE) instead of the error dialog boxes: Enter “about:config” in the URL field and change “browser.xul.error_pages.enabled” from “false” to “true” (just click on the entry to switch it)
