Firefox extensions I use – update

I recently gave a list of the Firefox extensions that I used. I also spoke about Deepest Sender. I just got a new computer and had to reinstall all of my extensions. I am using Firefox 1.5.0.1. One of my extensions did not work so I had to install Nightly Tester Tools to get BBcode to work. All you have to do is install the NTT and restart Firefox and you can install BBCode. It does require you check the NTT checkbox before you hit the install button for BBCode. In the future if you upgrade your Firefox all you have to do is go to the extension window and click on the NTT button and it will make all your extensions work. This was very useful.
I got some new ones as well.

Domain Details – This adds a little menu when you right click on a web page. It has two options. The first is just a plain whois. You have to enter a CAPTCHA for this one. The second gives a report about your site. Stuff like Backlinks, Alexa info, where the server is, type of webserver, pagerank, and info from your registrar. The second does not require a CAPTCHA. They both open up in an unfocused new tab.
Web Developer – I may be the last person on the planet to install this. I have heard a lot about it but never understood how it would help me. I have seen some sites that were cloaking and redirecting with javascript and the toolbar allows me to turn off javascript. It lets you turn on and off many things. There are way too many items for me to list here. Just check it out.

    You are not the last person on the planet using Web developer toolbar. I used to use it but after many FF updates is broken now and I miss it!
    I also use Google global to see the results in different countries :)
