    I decided to start a thread for the remaining Windows XP browsers that are still being updated and the extensions that provide safe browsing and added features. Please share your experiences by posting screenshots, and most importantly, download links since Mozilla deleted all add-ons for older versions.

    I am basing this thread around extensions that work with New Moon, Pale Moon, Serpent and Centaury browsers. If you are posting extensions for Seamonkey please indicate it in your reply and whether the extension is compatible with NM/PM/SP/CY browsers.

    Ublock Origin
    I refuse to surf without this add-on.

    Install it, go to add-ons page and click options for Ublock.

    Click on Show Dashboard then select the 'Filter lists' tab

    Tick all the boxes then hit the 'Update Now' button and wait for all the lists to update. You are ready to surf!

    I know many of you are big fans of QuickJava as I too have been for many years. However I recently stumbled on an extension call PrefBar.

    [​IMG]

    It adds a toolbar with many of the same features of QuickJava but also includes a customizable User Agent Switcher thus eliminating the need for a separate add-on for that purpose.

    You can add/delete user agent strings as needed. Toolbar buttons can me moved/added/removed from the toolbar. Additional buttons are available here:

    Simple Add-on Manager 0.0.1 This handy extension adds a drop-down menu on your toolbar that allows you to enable/disable any installed extension(s) and plugins with a click. No need to go to the add-ons menu just to toggle an extension.

    Sadly I couldn't find this extensions archived anywhere on the web but I did have backup and am posting it here.

    Youtube Video and Audio downloader 0.5.9.

    This adds a button on your toolbar for Youtube as well as a download button on the bottom of any Youtube video you are watching.

    [​IMG]

    Click on the download button and you will be presented with available video/audio types to download.
    [​IMG]

    Click on the numbers at the bottom to see what other formats are available for download.

    When you first install this extension you will be prompted to download the FFMPEG library (open source) to enable conversion to other audio/video formats.

    [​IMG]

    There is a good chance you may already have FFMPEG installed because a lot of other video converters use this library - if you are not sure just let it download.

    If you do have FFMPEG installed you will need to go to 'Options' and specify the location of the FFMPEG.EXE binary on your computer.

    [​IMG]

    (The path of your FFMPEG.EXE will probably be different than mine).

    You can't download this extension from Mozilla anymore, only the newer WEBEX version.

    Fortunately the author has archived a version on Github that will work (I wish more add-ons authors did this).

    https://github.com/inbasic/iaextractor/blob/master/builds/0.5.9.xpi

    Click on the 'View Raw' link and it will download the XPI file that you can manually install.

    It's too late for me to edit my original post but this thread is for XP based Mozilla browsers - I mentioned Pale Moon but that is no longer supported in XP. I meant MyPal, not Pale Moon.:oops:
