3 Must have Firefox Addons for Ubuntu Users

There are not too many Firefox add-ons specific to Ubuntu Users. However I found these three add-ons really useful.

Firefox Notify

With Firefox Notify add-on, you can receive all Firefox notifications through Ubuntu's native d-bus notification system. Works for Gnome as well as KDE environments. It may work on other distros too, you have to try it yourself.



Download from here  (The link is down. Use the command below)
Edit: Also available in official Ubuntu repositories: sudo apt-get install xul-ext-notify

Search Ubuntu Packages

Lets you search Ubuntu packages right from Firefox search box.

Download from here

TerminalRun

This is really useful add-on for Ubuntu users. This add-on allows you to select shell commands from any web page and execute them just by a simple right click.

Install it (from the link below) and test it on following commands:
  1. df -h (show disk space)
  2. free -m (show Ram Usage)


This means that adding a ppa from any webpage is really simple :)
