Perhaps the number one reason Firefox is so popular is due to the Adblock extension. Adblock filters out advertisements from websites. To download Adblock, go to the Adblock page located in the extensions portion of the Firefox website. Once you install Adblock, you'll also want to install the Adblock filterset.G Updater which is an extension that updates the advertisements to block automatically!
An extension extends the functionality of Firefox. These are generally downloaded through their secure site, which can be tricky to find the most useful extensions. My goal is to make it easy to find and use the best extensions for Firefox. Extensions can do many things, from installing useful tools to blocking advertisements to adding entertainment.
To get extensions for Firefox, you click on the Tools menu, then click Extensions. This will bring up the extension manager, a simple interface which allows you to manage your extensions. Click on Get More Extensions.
With the increasing popularity of the free browser Firefox, I have decided to start this tutorial for users of other browsers.
