Fortunately Mozilla Firefox created the add-ons for its internet browser. The add-ons are extra tools you can download to extend the possibilities of using the world wide web.
There are two add-ons that are unmissable when you work with internet. The first one blocks most of the adds that are integrated in websites. It's called Adblock Plus. It comes with a package you can choose from and most of the adds are blocked. Flashblock is the second one. It prevents all the flash files on websites from popping up. You've to click on the pictogram to play the flash instead.
Another nice addition, is the dictionairy that can check your spelling in many languages.
Good bye to all the adds, welcome easy readable websites. If you want to check out more add-ons, the recommendations on the Firefox website are worth a look as well. Every country has its own recommendations.
A tip (if you already use Firefox you might know this already, but for those who don't): if you want to see a new web page, but you don't want to leave the current one, press the right mouse button on the link and choose 'open in new tab'. You can open a new blank tab using the command ctrl t or for Mac users command t.
