This handy firefox add on lets you hold down the right mouse button and draw a square over a set of links. Then, it will open each of those links into its own tab. This is useful if you have students placing links on a page and need to open each link to assess them. This is the only firefox extension that I found compatible with the newest version of firefox, although it is preliminary, I've found it to work fine for me.

An article about a new Firefox plug in called Ubiquity that is supposed to be particularly useful for people who have to translate quite a bit, but also adds custom programmability to ubiquity and your firefox web browser that allow you to close individual URLs, generate tiny urls, and all sorts of other things. WE'll see if this is the firefox plug in to end them all but I'll let you know. Meanwhile, if any of you have tested it, I'd love to hear from you.

Great, basic tips for why so many of us love firefox so much! Every time I do a workshop, I teach about tabbed browsing - you won't believe how many people don't know about it and it is one of the most useful things out there. Don't get so caught up in learning YOUR new thing that you neglect sharing something that could be someone else's most useful new thing!

There is a glitch in Firefox 3 and older versions of Java that CAN cause the keyboard to start typing backwards in URL and search boxes in Firefox 3.

This is the strangest thing, but it started happening to my class as they were working on Ning today. Checked everything and finally upgraded Java. So, if you're using Firefox 3 - upgrade your Java or you may start typing sdrawkcab !

Glubble is a firefox plug in to allow you to sort of monitor/ filter what they view online without having to pay for a filter. Yes, it is a filter, but for elementary aged children, I think it could be a good idea. Would love to hear a review from a reader.

Super cool add in for the new Firefox. Piclens gives you a 3 d way to browse videos and pictures on the web and is very very cool. Just remember that if you upgrade to firefox3 that some add ins won't work at the beginning. Firefox 3 has just entered public release which is usually about the time it has enough stability and support to make me happy.
