Firefox Extensions

Image Zoom

If you have ever had an image that was too large to fit on your screen or too small to see the finer detail in your browser or email, then image zoom can help. Image zoom gives you complete control of the size of most images displayed in mozilla based software. Both individual images or whole pages of images can be zoomed.

SpellBound for Firefox 1.x and Thunderbird 1.x

SpellBound is a port of the spellchecker code and user interface from the Mozilla Suite's Composer that enables spell checking in web forms such as html textarea / input elements (html input password elements are not checked by SpellBound) and rich text form elements. This allows you to spell check forms (e.g. message board posts, blog entries, wysiwyg, etc.) before submitting them when using your Mozilla Firefox or Mozilla Suite browser.

Save Image in Folder

This extension helps you to quickly save images into different folders without having to click through your folder structure again and again.

Simply create your personal set of frequently used save-locations and access them via context-menu.
The folders can automatically be opened by your favourite file-manager upon downloading.
They can even be browsed within Firefox using a new toolbar-menu.

NoScript

NoScript provides extra protection for your Mozilla/Firefox or Flock browser: this extension allows JavaScript and Java execution only for trusted domains of your choice (e.g. your home-banking web site).

This whitelist based pre-emptive script blocking approach prevents exploitation of security vulnerabilities (known and even not known yet!) with no loss of functionality...

You can enable JavaScript/Java execution for sites you trust with a simple left-click on the NoScript status bar icon (look at the picture), or using the contextual menu, for easier operation in popup statusbar-less windows.
Watch the "Using NoScript" video kindly contributed by John Wilkerson.

8) Interesting, this shows that such a function is possible… I regret to miss it in XnView in a way I proposed here… and I don't use Mozilla stuff.

VuDu- I definitely think noscript is a good thing (I just wish it worked in k-meleon). Being able to turn on javascript on certain sites while telling the rest to shove it (yet not having to constantly toggle javascript on/off) is great.

Features:
* Customizible statusbar
* DualChecking system (this makes it so that you really know if the site is safe or not)
* Changing what to do when the icon is clicked on
* Blocking pages (if you hit a phishing site you are automatically blocked)
* Several Languages (RO, CN, DE, PL, TW, SE, FR, HR, IT, NL, ES, SK, BR, and EN) are supported and more are coming
* The ability to turn off the phishing filter
* SafeView (this is called continue in the extension) allows you to view the phishing site temporarly before reloading the filter)
* An Up-To-Date blacklist using data from PhishTank.
* AutoUpdating (the extension will auto update)
* Very fast.
* Free and only 39kb!
