AddonFox: The Best Firefox Add-ons

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011 by | Filed Under: Using The Internet

Shawna from MS asks:

There are so many add-ons for Firefox – I can hardly keep track, much less find the patience to install them all one at a time! Is there a better way?

Are you a Firefox fanatic? Are you looking to spice up your Internet experience? If you answered “yes” to both of those questions then get ready to check out AddonFox. AddonFox brings a whole new meaning to the phrase “installing Firefox addons”. Get ready, because here it comes!

AddonFox is a Firefox extension which allows you to install many of the best Firefox add-ons with just the check of a box. I guarantee that when you’ll try it, you will find some really neat features to add to Firefox, without even doing any work!

To begin using AddonFox, navigate to and select the large green Download button.

To allow AddonFox to install, simply select Allow in the upper left corner, followed by Install Now.

The download is a small file so it should be brief. When it has completed, select Restart Firefox.

When the web browser reopens, the AddonFox Install Wizard will open a moment later.

Here you can see all of the categories AddonFox offers. I recommend you keep all of the boxes checked so you can get a good idea of all that AddonFox has to offer.

Next the list of Customization add-ons will appear. As you can see, there is a description for each add-on, and the More Info link will take you to the official add-on developer page, if you’d like.

Simply check or uncheck a box to download the desired add-ons. Repeat this for all of the categories and finally click Finish and the add-ons will begin installing.

When you are prompted to restart Firefox, simply select OK.

When Firefox reopens, if you check your Add-ons Manager, you will see all of the extensions have been installed. Now it’s your job to start using them!

A quick word to the wise: when using AddonFox, don’t select too many add-ons to download in one run. Otherwise, when Firefox restarts, you may be bombarded by all of the new features. Instead, add only three or four at a time, then open up AddonFox again.

Have fun!
