Another Brick in the Wall
navjotjsingh, i dont know abt the 80mb thing, but Indyan posted a 18mb download which has the best and has selected good extensions.

Just open the file (.xpi) and when u open for the first time it will ask from which file to open, then chose FF and ask it to remember as well. Then when FF open, it will get the .xpi to install.

@sav_more, follow the same procedure i said to klinux and it will be done.


Another Brick in the Wall
