To make your Firefox a power Surfing browser, I have compiled a list of some of the best and most commonly used Firefox add-ons.

Following Firefox Extensions make your navigation in Firefox as easy as possible.

Colorful Tabs

I usually have a lot of tabs open at any one time, so being able to differentiate them is a great help. Colorful Tabs is the simplest Firefox add-on that makes a strong colorful appeal.


It makes your tabs easy to distinguish while beautifying the overall appeal of the interface. This is quite a nice little

Tab Mix Plus

Tab Mix Plus enhances Firefox’s tab browsing capabilities. It includes such features as duplicating tabs, controlling tab focus, tab clicking options, undo closed tabs and windows, plus much more.


It also includes a full-featured session manager with crash recovery that can save and restore combinations of opened tabs and windows.

Fast Dial


Fast Dial is a great FireFox add-on and a feature that you all have probably seen in Opera already. Fast Dial replaces blank tabs with a panel of thumbnails of your favorite sites. So  whenever you open a new tab it will show you the list of websites you have added. From there simply click the thumbnail to open the website immediately. Plus point for Fast Dial is that it allows you to add up to 100 websites with the customization options.



Showcase provides a new way to manage your Firefox tabs and windows by showing them as thumbnails in a single window, tab or sidebar. Includes a find bar that will filter the thumbnails, and the capability to select the thumbnails in the same way you would select files in your system.
