Plugins for Mozilla that allow a variety of different Web, E-Mail, and Interface features. Some are gradually being integrated into the browser itself such as MultiZilla (http://multizilla.mozdev.org/).
- Most downloads are small, only a 10-100 kilobytes and do not take long to download or install.
- Some plugins are in the early stages of development and damage the browser or prevent start up. Please note the front page for any warnings.
- Most plugins require the browser be re-started. If you would like to see the effects of your tool without losing a number of tabs, select “Bookmarks” – “Bookmark this Group of Tabs” and then restart the browser and select that bookmark.
