Today I’ll be teaching you how to make a list of all Firefox’s plugins, addons, extensions and themes with AND without using any third party applications!
So you can share the list anytime you want with your friends, or when reporting a bug or a conflict about Firefox. It is very simple and easy…

How to list Firefox addons without any third party applications:

To list all your addons just start Firefox and type the following line in the address bar and hit Enter…
about:support

This will basically show you troubleshooting information about Firefox including the current version of your browser, The modified preferences and also a list of the addons you have!
Just hold down Ctrl key and quickly select all cells under the “Name” column in the addons table, Then copy them to wherever you want!

How to list Firefox plugins without any third party applications:

Again, just like the one above, But you’ll type a different line in the address bar…
about:plugins
This will show you a list of all the installed plugins you have along with some information about them.

How to list Firefox plugins, addons, extensions using a Firefox extension:

extension-list-dumper This extension is called Extension List Dumper, and can be downloaded from here:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3746/

This extension adds a button (“Dump list”) to the Addons window. When this button is clicked, a new window pops up with the list of installed addons extensions, themes and plugins. It also shows the current version of Firefox and the operating system.
