Firefox plugins and upgrades

A first place to look for Firefox plugins in Ubuntu is in Synaptic – do a search on Firefox and scan the list. Make sure you have all the standard repositories enabled and also, perhaps, repositories such as medibuntu.

You should find the popular plugins such as image zoom, adblock plus, fireftp, flashblock, scrapbook, flash, and others there to install system wide and under system management.

Some other plugins I find useful includ all-in-one sidebar, autopager, colt, download statusbar, FEBE, password exporter, scribefire, tab mix plus, unhide passwords, and uppity.

If you upgrade your firefox version, such as using 3.5 (shireteko) in Jaunty from the Universe repository, you’ll find the system plugins may not be compatible. Then you have to load them as local plugins.
