The Add-ons Manager page (about:addons) doesn't allow to Find in page. It has a search field, but it only searches online in This is wholly inadequate once one has more than a couple of screenfulls of add-ons.

In my case, I have over 80 add-ons enabled (and many more disabled). Whenever I have to find the right one for anything (enabling or disabling, changing preferences) it's a pain, since I have to scan the list one by one, check whether the name relates to what I want, and try to remember what each one is for.

Ideally we would be able to search for a string appearing in the name, description or release notes of the add-ons.

Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.

In general a search-, filter- and sortable table view would be very nice.

Phew - 80 add ons and counting?
You must have loads of experience.
Are there any that you highly recommend?

For those interested, you could vote for this to be fixed in this bug report: . The "Vote" button is in the Details section, near the top of the page.

Spencer: just the results of years using Firefox. You'll find the ones that work for you. Anyway, I couldn't manage without TreeStyleTabs.

Awako: did you even try?

Not having this drives me nuts. Even a basic Ctrl+F would fix this.

I have lots of installed plugins but not all of them are enabled because I only enable them when they are needed so FF runs good.

The best place to store those great plugins is in FF so you never loose them, but at the same time you do not want a 100 plugins enabled.

This is where the search installed addons would be useful and perhaps with these additional things:

  • Search in the title and description (maybe have search options for selecting)
  • Filter by category
  • Filter by status (enabled/disabled)

This is an annoyance, trying to manage over 20 addons for power users

Hey all,

Good news...

This is currently available in Nightly (feel free to check it out) and we're aiming to ship it in Firefox 112. Stay tuned for more updates 😀

This is great news, I saw the bug report go to "wontfix" and I was worried !

Firefox is on a roll lately !

In the mean time,

this addon will give your a text list of your addon

 Add-on List-o-matic 9000"


It would be nice to have a link to the add-on's page, currently there is only a link to the author


Also it would be nice to have a filter search on the add-on page

Type some text and it only shows your add-on with matching text


And it would be nice to be able to select text and copy from the add-on page

It is very strange that you cannot select text here !
