Do you frequently browse social networking sites when you’re at work? Do you also fear getting embarrassed in front of your colleagues or boss for opening inappropriate sites when you really have you be working? Check out these five Firefox extensions that could save you in times of crisis.
1. Panic â€“ Download
At the press of a hot key, this addon closes all opened tabs and opens a new tab that leads to a web page of your choice (by default, a Google search page for â€œIncreasing Workplace Productivityâ€ is opened but it can be altered). Using another hotkey, the previously opened sites can be restored easily.
2. Page Title Eraser â€“ Download
Using this Firefox addon, you can quickly hide tab titles and also the favicon of any tab or all tabs. Just press the hotkey combo Ctrl+Alt+Shift+H to hide the current tab title.
3. Tab Renamizer â€“ Download
In just a flash, Tab Renamizer can rename the title of all your inactive tabs with the press of a hotkey (Ctrl+Shift+Z) by replacing it with random words. Otherwise, you can manually rename a tab by using the F2 key.
4. Faviconize Tab – Download
Shows only the favicon of the current website on its tab title. Just do a Ctrl+Shift+Alt and click on the tab title to reduce the tab title bar to show only the favicon.
5. Minimize To Tray â€“ Download
You can use this addon to minimize Firefox to the system tray instead of the taskbar or minimize to the system tray on closing the window. The pity is that this addon doesn’t work in the latest versions of Firefox.
