Find Add-ons for Mozilla Firefox

Finding and learning about add-ons, or accessory programs, for Mozilla's Firefox web browser is quite straightforward. With a few simple searches, you can add any number of small programs that make browsing the internet, organizing downloads, and adding various customizations incredibly simple, and all with no noticeable slow-down. And as long as you use Firefox's built-in "add-on update" feature, you can use these accessories indefinitely.

This article will help you to find add ons for mozilla firefox.

  1. Open Firefox, and click on the "Tools" option in the menu bar.
  2. Click "Add-ons" to open the built-in firefox add-on search engine. This should open a new window.
  3. Click the "Get Add-ons" button at the top of the window.
  4. Click "Browse All Add-ons" to open a new browser window that has Firefox's official list of sponsored add-ons. You can then look at a number of add-ons by category.
  5. Click "Recommended Add-ons" to see a list of the most popular add-ons. Although these are often very useful, they may not fit your actual needs, and the list is relatively short.
  6. Enter a term in the blank search field to see a list of Add-ons matching your criteria. You can click on the titles to learn more about them.
  7. Click the "Add to Firefox" button next to any add-on to install it. Follow the instructions that appear for the specific add-on in case it requires you take some further action. Usually, all you will need to do after clicking "Add to Firefox" is restart your browser.
