Doug: Would be interested in you sharing yours, too John
My Firefox use is pretty light, so this is not too exciting. I mostly use Safari.
- 1 Password
- Facebook Container, not sure how that got there, auto installed?
- Fraidycat, there is always room for another RSS reader in my life and Kicks Condor has some amazing stuff online
- Greasemonkey, I think I installed but it was to hard for me to figure out
- OneNote Clipper, from when I was testing OneNote
- RSSPreview, newly installed
- Save Tiddlers
- Want My RSS
- Firebug – disabled (I found it too much for my needs)
- User-Agent Switcher (disabled)
The only ones I am particularly interested in at the moment are the RSS ones, Fraidycat and Save Tiddlers.
Although I’ve got my main TiddlyWiki experiment running on a Raspberry pi using node (look at me!) and usually use Waterfox as the editor I am interested in other ways of using it.
In this microcast, I go through my Firefox extensions and the reasons I have them installed.
That was interesting, thanks.
I’d moved to Waterfox for my secondary browser when Firefox lost the display of RSS,
I’ve now added the RSSPreview add-on. Glad to get a reminder about Fraidycat too.
I take a lot of screenshots. Mostly I use the standard mac keyboard shortcuts or the home + sleep buttons on iOS or less frequently the snipping tool on Windows. These are all covered on How to take a screenshot. I find the mac ones to be the best for general purposes, lots of options at your finger tips.
Occasionally I’ll use other tools:
webkit2png a command line tool if I need to get a lot of webpage screens quickly or to do some automation.
Paparazzi a mac app gets images of full pages including the off screen sections.
Firefox’s Developer Toolbar is a new one to me. The Developer Toolbar gives you command-line access to a number of developer tools from within Firefox. One of the things it does is take screenshots, which can be of full pages. I used it to take this screenshot of the Glow Blogs Sites page (resized for display here).
To use the firefox tool you open the Developer tools (Shift-F2) and this opens a wee box at the bottom of the page where you type commands. For example
screenshot dev-tools.png --fullpage
Will save a png of the full pages into your downloads folder, the file will be named dev-tools.png
