My Favorite Top Five must have Firefox Add-ons

My Favorite Top Five List of FireFox Add-ons that I use and you must have.

Here is a list of my favorite top five Firefox add-ons that I use very often. I just can’t imagine doing so many things on Internet that I do everyday without their assistance. I also been using couple of others which didn’t make into the list since this is list of only Top Five.

FireFTP is my personal top favorite, which lets me manage my site. FireFTP is a free, secure, cross-platform FTP client that provides easy and intuitive access to FTP servers. This eliminates a piece of software for those of you who use a separate program for FTP. Along with transferring your files quickly and efficiently, FireFTP also includes more advanced features such as: directory comparison, syncing directories while navigating, SSL encryption, file hashing, and much more! Webmaster should try this.


StumbleUpon allows you to discover and share great Web content matched to your personal preferences. Whether it’s a website, video, picture, game, blog, or wiki, StumbleUpon helps you find interesting pages recommended by like-minded people with a single click of the Stumble! Button. This helps you find interesting Web pages you wouldn’t think to search for. Read my earlier post about StumbleUpon.


ScribeFire (previously Performancing) is a full-featured blog editor that sits right in your Firefox browser and lets you post to your blog easily. You can drag and drop formatted content, including images; from the page you are browsing and take notes as well as post to your blog. ScribeFire is compatible with most of the blog systems.


SearchStatus a neat little tool that provides you with some handy shortcuts for site information like PageRank, AlexaRank, backlinks, keyword density, link reports, whois, keyword/nofollow highlighting, backward/related links and a bunch of other search engine marketing related tools. I use the tool to track the pagerank and alexa rank of site that I’m browsing.


FoxyTunes places remote controls for the media player of your choice within Firefox so you can control your music without leaving your browser. The controls appear on the status bar or one of the toolbars, so no space is wasted. You can pause, forward/reverse, play, adjust the volume, and see what’s playing. There’s also an alarm clock and a sleep timer. This is a must-have extension for users who regularly listen to music while browsing the Web as it is to me 🙂

Thanks to those wonderful add-ons. This is my favorite 5, I do use others too but not that often. If you have some else in top 5 list, your comments are welcomed.

  1. I have some more in my wish list …

    Web developer, Download Statusbar and Coolirirs Previews …

    I dont go with fireFTP … I never had a good exp with that …. a external FTP app would be better ….

  2. Hey there, I got you tell you this about your Firefox Addon, “It totally SUCKS”. Do you think a person would need a addon like this to search shopping sites when there are some good websites like ? What would be the necessity of EU using it rather than

  3. It’s a good question. We were focusing on people who wanted to pricecheck across the web. Pricegrabber only had a limited number of stores in its database, so we figured: why not save the time and hit a wider variety pricechecking sites at once? We were trying to make the bargain hunting a lot more efficient.

  4. Well, I would appreciate if you’re able get a platform where you can gather the price across all stores in a single place… Right now, I see pricegrabber is much easier to me. Keep us posted when you have next version of your addon released. I would go back and review it again. !

  5. Hey Benedict,

    As promised, I’m writing again regarding our new extension. We recently (dec. 21) released a new version of the extension: We’ve updated the search feature, but the two new (hopefully useful features) are 1. price protection – we make it super easy to use the site, and 2. a coupon code button, that helps users quickly find coupons. When you are not using the toolbar, you can easily hide it via the right click menu. Would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks!

  6. hey there, thank you for writing in the update. I have got a chance to try the new Firefox toolbar. First one, I have noticed the toolbar has not been published in Mozillia Firefox add-ons repository. Also the toolbar has nothing to do with the new functionality added. All the new features are incorporated with the web search or query. The coupon search simply redirects to google custom search which can be made better. Altogether I really don’t see any potential use of using this toolbar. I’m sorry if you think I’m being more negative. You have to enhance the toolbar with foreseeing potential use of it. hope you understand what I mean.

  7. Thank you very much for your comments. Sorry for the very late reply – your comment went into my spam folder, and I just caught it.

    1. We are trying to figure out a way to enhance the coupon code function. If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear it…it currently takes way too many clicks to get from the coupon code button to the actual codes.

    2. Did the price protectr function make sense? We’re hoping it makes it a lot easier for people to protect items they buy online.

    thanks again, and again – sorry for the late reply.
