Mozilla Firefox Add-ons

With Add-ons (sometimes also called extensions), it is possible to provide additional functionality to Firefox.

You should install only really necessary and well-known Add-ons because there is no standardized quality assurance for them.

Installation

Firefox Add-ons are getting installed via .xpi files. If your are browsing a website with Firefox and you are following a linked .xpi file, Firefox should ask you if you want to install the file.

To install an Add-on manually:

  1. Download the .xpi file (use “Right Click\Save as…” to prevent triggering the common installation wizard)
  2. Goto “File→Open File” (shortcut: Ctrl+O)
  3. Browse to the .xpi file you downloaded and press Okay.
  4. A “Software Installation” window will appear. Press the “Install now” button when it becomes enabled.
  5. Restart Firefox. You can delete the downloaded .xpi file now.
