Extensions slow down Firefox so I prefer disabling all but the most important Firefox extensions when coding.
Here's how to do it:
- First, create a development profile following these instructions http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Managing+profiles
- Next, create a shortcut that starts Firefox in development mode:
# Mac OSX /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -P development -no-remote # Linux /usr/lib/firefox/firefox-bin -P development -no-remote # Windblows "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -P development -no-remote
