The Best Firefox Add-Ons of 2011

Here’s a nice round-up of some of the more interesting Firefox add-ons from 2011 …

We have almost hit the one post per day mark in 2011, with 352 posts published that covered the Firefox browser in one way or another. Not all of the posts were add-on reviews though as we have covered Firefox news, updates, and cross-browser related news as well here on

What better way to start the New Year with a look back at some of the best Firefox add-ons that we have reviewed here in 2011. Please note that this list may include add-ons that have been around for a longer time. The only qualifying factor is whether they have been reviewed on Ghacks in 2011 or not.

Each add-on is listed with its name, a short description, link to the review and direct link to the Mozilla Add-ons repository.
