Tip & How-To about Mozilla Firefox

How can I check what plugins are loaded in my Firefox Browser ?

Download the most popular plugins from the addons website

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/browse/type:7

Not sure that you have the correct plugin OR its not upto date then check this link and it will tell you remember not all plugins are dervived for XPI add-ons like the Microsoft Silverlight Plugin and the DivX Web Player

Another great way to find out what plugins that are loaded into Firefox is to use the my config option in the Mr. Tech Toolkit add-on you may want to check the show descriptions + filename in the options menu to display the DLL file and Version info.





Examples of Popular Plugins

ADOBE DOWNLOAD MANAGER FOR FIREFOX XPI
This will download the Adobe Reader and other large files unless you have a download manager installed like IDM one of the fastest on the web, if this is the case don't install Adobe DLM
ADOBE SHOCKWAVE SLIM
This will install shockwave for director plugin
GARMIN COMMUNICATOR PLUGIN FOR FIREFOX EXE
This will enable your Garmin SatNav to communicate with Firefox
WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER PLUGIN FOR FIREFOX EXE
To add wmv content to be played in Firefox

Download Vidios


First you will need firefox. Best web browser you can get.
http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/

Once you install firefox, now you need to apply some add-ons.
There are several add-ons that will allow you to save the video stream to your hard drive. I prefer download helper, but there are others, and they work just as well.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3006

most of these files are ".flv". So if you want to play them back you will need a media player that can read ".flv" files.

I like VLC:

To enhance fire fox, try using other add-ons:
