Firefox Add-Ons You Will Love!

I have chosen three Firefox Add-Ons that I feel Etsy users would love to know about. I am going to give a brief description of each. If you do not currently have Firefox as your web browser you need to download it before any of these Add-Ons will work. It is free, and can be found here: www.mozilla.com/firefox/

Quick Note

This Add-on allows a small pop-up window for you to make little notes to yourself. It saves automatically and is really handy!

To download and install go here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/46

To use this, select the Tools tab in your Firefox browser and click on Quick Note. You can choose to have it float, be a tab, or be a sidebar. You should try out all three to decide which works best for you.

Morning Coffee

This Add-on lets you click a cup-of-coffee on your browser that opens all of the websites you desire (in different tabs.) I find this to be a great asset in the morning, when I want to look at my store, my Google Analytics, and craft cult -- I can click one button and they all open for me. You can program different lists depending on the day and time.

To download and install go here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2677

To set it up, open the pages you would like to be added. Click on the little cup of coffee at the top of your screen, and then click "Add to My Morning Coffee." Then you can pick which list you would like to add it too.

Plain Text Links

This Add-On makes it possible to open text links that are not clickable. This saves the time of having to copy and paste text links into your browser. This helps out on Etsy because it essentially makes every link clickable.

To download and install go here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/78

Now anytime you see a link that is plain text, right-click on it. A little menu will come up and from it you can choose "Open selected url."
