A look at the best Firefox add-ons of 2012, a holiday gift for Firefox fans, and an infographic that shows how 2012 was a great year for Mozilla.

Mozilla has an add-ons board that analyzes the newest add-ons and recommends the best ones to the millions of users who make up the Firefox community. As the year comes to a close, the aforementioned add-ons board, a team of Mozilians who absolutely love add-ons, put together a list of the top 12 add-ons of 2012 – one for every month of the year. Let’s take a look at that list, shall we?


Top 12 Firefox Add-ons of 2012 – One for Every Month of the Year
  1. January - LastPass Password Manager: free online password manager and form filler.
  2. February – All-in-One Sidebar: open various windows as sidebar panels, and quickly switch between them.

“All year long, you — our Firefox fans — give to us. You use Firefox. You help us make it better. You help us fight to keep the Web open and available to all. And we love you for it! That’s why we’d like to use this opportunity to give a gift back to you! It’s our way of saying “thanks” and “Happy holidays!”

As Jonathan Nightingale, VP of Firefox Engineering, put it, 2012 was an incredible year for Mozilla. The desktop browser was streamlined and upgraded, the Android browser was rebuilt from the ground up, the excitement around Firefox OS is growing, Mozilla reaffirmed its position as an advocate for user sovereignty, and more. The infographic below presents an overview of Mozilla’s incredible year.
