Firefox 56 to 57, my changed list of essential extensions to gain back freedom on the broken internet

Well, after ages and lots of donated money to the extension developer (yes, I do an you should do the same!), mozilla made fundamental changes in ther way how to extend their browser. Because of that, I need to update my collection of extensions.

Firefox 57? Thats the browser where you have to open "about:config", search for "pocket" and set the value to false for "extension.pocket.enabled" and "browser.toolbarbuttons.introduced.pocket-button". You also have to disable all the spam on your blank start page (new tab). And of course, disable and remove all cliqz related shit.

Here is my new list working with firefox 57. Lets see how well things are working out. The mozilla extension search results are as bad as google search results today.

Firefox 29 and the lost add on status bar

As user of the only real big open source web browser i was astonished about the gone add on status bare since version 29.
After a few minutes of searching, i can recommend two extensions, the addon bar or status 4 evar.
If you want to know more, read this thread or this howto.

pentadactyl is working on firefox 22 with current nightly build

Gosh, that had been two unproductive days in the matter of working with my browser. I just updated to firefox 22 and pentadactly was not working anymore. So i had to work two days without a usefull userinterface. I'm happy the current nightly build (Pentadactyl Nightly 2013-06-29) has raised the supported version to 24. So you can update your firefox and just install the newest version of pentadactyl :-).

And please donate to that lovely piece of software, i can tell you the last two days weren't the same.
