A short list of browser extensions I like to install so I don't have to go hunting when setting up a new machine:
(Very much under construction (redesign).
|uBlock Origin||uBlock sans Origin was acquired by AdBlock Plus and permits "acceptable ads" which they receive money for|
|NoScript Security Suite<|
|FlagFox||Displays a country flag depicting the location of the current website's server and provides a multitude of tools such as site safety checks, whois, translation, similar sites, validation, URL shortening, and more...
This extension has a wide userbase and bears the Recommended by Mozilla badge; it is much more popular than Country Flags & IP WHOIS but less functionality. Use this if you judge risk by installed userbase.
|FoxyTab||Collection of Tab Related Actions e.g. Duplicate, Close Duplicates, Close to the Left, Copy Title, Merge Windows, Save as PDF, Copy Urls Tab/All/Left/Right, Host keep/close/close other, Sort by URL/Title, Asce/Desc, Move, Reload, Reload Timer
FoxyTab also displays a country flag for the geolocation of the remote host's IP however it provides a multitude of useful functions otherwise provided by several smaller extensions with smaller userbases. Do not use in conjunction with other flag-bearing extensions if your degree of autism conflicts.
|Country Flags & IP WHOIS||FireFox||Adds a toolbar/address bar button with an icon of current location of the website's server. This information is extracted from the IP address of the responding server. The extension has a built-in table to convert the provided IP address to the country flag.
The most (useful) options on a geolocating, flag-displaying extension that I have yet encountered and the one I use personally.
- uBlock Origin
- ScriptSafe or NoScript (ScriptSafe has wider adoption on Chrome)
- Privacy Badger
- HTTPS Everywhere
