bonus points if someone can tell me the name of an addon that had a background, clock, and a nice greeting message but can't remember the name of it

DownThemAll
DownThemAll Anti-Container

Tab Groups (if you're using a version that already has native tab groups gone)

Those are the ONLY thing keeping me on Firefox. DTA and Tab Groups are awesome

No reason to use a bunch of old/inferior (NoScript), abandonware (Policeman) or redundant (Random UA) extensions.

DTA is a download tool not a privacy tool. Anti-Container is an extension of it to pick up more links

>>52934605
the single-link download has a nice text input which is waaay faster and less error-prone than navigate on the shitty default Save To window (you'll never accidentally click an existing file and almost overwrite it) . Renaming masks are sometimes handy. But really I like the text-input save location because I can pick a folder, example "4chan", and then quickly type the sub folder like "g" or "reaction faces". Same with porn, quick saving to specific folder.
I guess the bigger feature is the link scraper. You can filter URLs, extensions, etc. I have a custom regex filter for 4chan links which keeps out any of the reverse image search links that would normally get caught by the default image filter.
And typical download settings like rate limits, how many connections total, how many connections per server.

I take advantage of the keyboard shortcuts in the context menu also. Right-click on something, then hit "N" for downloading the link or "S" for the image. Right-Click then "N" on the page (not an image or link) to get the page scraper.

I also forgot that I have the addon Menu Editor to clean up the context menu, so there aren't any other shortcuts that use "S" or "N"

It's just waaay faster to navigate than the default save/download menus.
>>
Ghostery is nice if you don't like google tracking every porn site you go on.

Try YouTube Center. It has a shitload of features including a downloader

Does umatrix have clearclick? I think not.
>>
>>52934861
Noscript isn't inferior. It does exactly what it says.
>>
>>52934951
Clearclick is a fucking buzzword.
With default-deny rules (using either uMatrix or uBlock Origin) you are immune to that shit anyway.
>>
>>52934962
uMatrix is a more modern, lightweight and restartless extension which does more than just block scripts.
For example you don't need ReqPolicy or User Agent Spoofer if you have uMatrix = less extensions = less bloat.

It also doesn't have a history of redirecting you to its author's homepage after every update and displaying ads which are whitelisted by default in NoScript.
NoScript developer is shady as fuck.

Image Search Options
adds reverse image searching to any image

FindBar Tweak
adds the much-needed Highlight All by default, and other assorted search tweaks

Tab Control
puts new tabs next to the current one instead of all the way on the right

Media Stealer
kinda like Tamper Data but specifically for snagging video links. Useful for those super-pain-in-the-ass video sites that break their videos into multiple segments. Find all links with the addon, download with a DL manager, recombine

Are you seriously asking why you should care that an extension that promises to protect you against scripts, and includes whitelists for the developer's own scripts/ads (that could potentially serve you malware)? Why do you even use security/privacy extensions if you are this careless and naive?

It's beyond shady, it's potentially straight up dangerous. I'll never trust that fucker again.

It's very well-documented and you'll be glad you did.

umatrix and ublock is a buzzword

noscript - 10
umatrix - 0

>>52935101
This is the same arguments Adblock Plus shills use to justify the inclusion of "acceptable ads".
Yes, you can opt out of it. But why the fuck should you have to when there are better alternatives?
And more importantly how can you trust a company/developer with security/privacy when they have a history of shady shit like that? Who knows when the next update will "accidentally" re-enable acceptable ads or some other bullshit.

GPL. The GPL makes freedom possible. I don't care whatever the Noscript author does because whatever he does, the GPL means everybody is allowed to change it.
>>
>>52935199
>GPL means everybody is allowed to change it.
Sure, but that means nothing since everyone (including you) is just using the vanilla build anyway.
>>
>>52935215
That means exactly what is written. The whole purpose of the GPL is that all users have the right to do it. If someone finds something specific, someone will normally issue a patch to fix it.

What are you not getting? That means nothing.
ABP is also (at least partly) open source but that doesn't mean people aren't using the vanilla build from Mozilla Addons complete with the acceptable ads bullshit.

It only matters if someone actually does something about it.
For example, Adblock Edge was created because Adblock Plus was (is) shit.

But I'm not seeing any NoScript Edge ITT, do you?

Of course. People are fine with Noscript. If people are not fine, then they will fork it. The fact that people don't fork free software doesn't mean anything. The only important matter is that the software is free.

cool ideal but not really practical if you were to use it like noscript. not only would it be even more of a hassle for the user but most scripts you would block on a website don't have any valuable functionality (to you), so why wouldn't you block the entire thing? though I'm thinking of cross-site stuff. it would be nice to have like an "analyze script" button on an entry in noscript or umatrix or whatever that would open an editor and highlight the functions in the script. having to deal with those special scripts though, even if you saved alternative versions for each site would bog down the extension I think.
>>
>>52946011

I thought of this because why whitelist google.com to execute any script it wants if i only want to enable captchas to work on 4chan.

I guess you are right , google obfuscates their scripts enough to make it a hassle.
>>
>>52946255
yeah, and in cases like that where the script is part of authorization systems that link to even more shit it probably would break if you tried to slice it apart if you could even figure it out. after all something like that would be considered an attack vector for that software.
