Firefox is a very popular open source web browser. This article provides some tips and information about extensions.

Firefox is supported and developed by The Mozilla project, which is a global community of people who believe that openness, innovation, and opportunity are key to the continued health of the Internet. Since 1998, we’ve worked to ensure that the Internet is developed in a way that benefits everyone.

How to make Firefox look like Google Chrome

Install these extensions:

  • Tiny Menu
  • Chromin Frame
  • Speed Dial

Then:

  • Close and restart Firefox.
  • Right click on a toolbar and chose Customise.
  • Drag all the items on the Navigation tool bar to the Menu toolbar, including the URL box and Google search box.
  • Click Done on the Customise Toolbar panel
  • Go to Menu -> View - Toolbars and deselect Navigation Toolbar.
  • Make sure Bookmarks tool bar is selected. Drag all your quick links there, and you can create folders on it with more links in them too.

That is it. You still have access to all the Menus via tiny menu. Now you have more screen and less toolbar and menu clutter. Your Firefox browser should now look like this.
