    I'm going to make a Firefox extension. I have knowledge in programming whatsoever, so this will be my first.
    But what would you like to see as a Firefox extension? Obviously it would have to be controllable by an extension, so don't ask for less RAM usage! ;)
    Also, if you have any tips or links (e.g tutorials), please give them! :)
    Thanks in advance,

    - Access to OS X' built-in spell-checker.

    - RSS handling similar to Safari's.

    - Block content's by type, with hotkey enabling. Like option-F to get rid of all Flash contents on all pages you visit.

    :)

    Very good idea. The extension wouldn't be cross platform, though, but that's OK. To anyone with more knowledge in programming: would this be possible?

    Well, there is saft, and that would be pretty hard. Maybe for a later project.

    Very nice idea. If this hasn't already been done, this is what I am going to do for my first extension. Thank you Mitthrawnuruodo!

    An extension that stops the MacOSX version from crashing too often? :rolleyes:
