Make Firefox Use Multiple Rows of Tabs

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.

To set this option, you must have the Tab Mix Plus extension installed. Assuming you do, open up the Tab Mix Plus options dialog via the Tools menu.

Choose the Display tab/icon on the top, and then make sure you have the Tab Bar tab selected.

Change the option for "When tabs don't fit width" to "Multi-row", and then check out the multiple-row goodness.

Its very easy to install and use.

Create a TinyUrl the Easy Way in Firefox

Have you ever tried to email or IM somebody a link from a site that has ridiculously long URLs, only to have the link break because it was too long or got cut off? The solution to this problem is to use a service like TinyUrl that turns a really long link into a really short link.

If you find yourself using this feature all the time, then you need the TinyUrl Creator extension for Firefox, which makes it very easy to not only create TinyUrls, but access the ones that you've already created.

Once installed, just right-click on any link, and choose "Create TinyURL for this Page".

With the default settings you'll get a popup confirmation that tells you the new link has been copied to your clipboard.

If you click the Save button, you can save the new TinyURL into Firefox. Note that this doesn't save as a bookmark, it saves in the extension's saved panel.

To view TinyURLs that you have previously saved, go to Tools \ TinyUrl Creator \ View Saved.

Here you can see the list of saved links, and then copy the TinyURL to your clipboard. This is extremely useful for links that you need to use often.

If you don't want the confirmation dialog every time you create a link, you can go into the TinyUrl options panel and check the box for "Do not show confirmation dialog upon TinyUrl creation".

With all of the features in this extension, it makes dealing with TinyUrl virtually simple and easy.

Backup and Restore Firefox Profiles Easily

Now you can easily transfer your Firefox profile from computer to another computer without any pain. Surely you can easily locate the firefox profile directory and then copy it to othet PC,but then it doesn’t show up in the list, and many other small issues which may bother you.

MozBackup application is for bavking up the files and restoring profiles to a single backup file. It is the moist easiest way for restoring and keeping the backup for files.

When you launch the application, you can choose to either backup or restore the profile. You can choose which profile to back up, and what file to save it as.

You can restore the profile on another computer by simply launching the MozBackup application on that computer, and then selecting the profile to restore to, and choosing the backup file that you copied from the first computer:

It is the easiest manner for restoring and keeping the backup of files.

Use Google Talk Sidebar in Firefox

Instead of using the Google Talk client embedded in Gmail, why not use it in your sidebar instead? Thanks to the gTalk sidebar extension, we can do just that.

Once you install the extension, you'll need to add the button to the toolbar. Right-click where the buttons are, choose Customize, and then add the icon you can see here.

This icon will let you open the sidebar, where you can open multiple conversations in separate tabs. Just keep in mind that if you close the sidebar, it will close the client as well.

This extension is also extremely useful for sending somebody a quick email. Just click on their name in the list or search for them via the search box, and then you'll see an email button.

Clicking this button will open up a message window already addressed to that contact. This is typically what I use the sidebar for - rather than just chatting, it's the quickest way to send an email.

Note that you can also use the keyboard shortcut Alt+G to open the sidebar.

Using Secure Login in Firefox

The regular Firefox password manager will automatically fill in the password fields for you, which gives malicious sites and hackers the chance to use javascript to read the password. Granted, this isn't a common occurrence, but it's still wise to be wary.

Using the Secure Login extension, you'll see these gold bars around the login credentials instead, but it won't fill in the fields automatically.

Just click the Secure Login button and the form will be filled and automatically submitted.

You can also use the keyboard shortcut Alt+N (customizable) to login even faster.

The button isn't automatically added to your toolbar after installing the extension, but it's easy to add: just right-click over the back/forward buttons and choose Customize Toolbar. You'll find the Secure Login button in the list.

The preferences have a lot of other options as well, like not automatically submitting the form when you click the button if you don't like that behavior. You can even customize the highlight color around the login elements.
