Firefox Plugins


This article will show you how to configure plugins for Firefox.

Plugins (modules) are special components required for the correct display of web pages. Don't be confused with Firefox plugins and add-ons. A plugin like Shockwave Flash is required to view videos. And add-ons, for example, Video DownloadHelper, allows you to download these very videos. Of course, in order for the Internet to be comfortable, plugins need to be updated periodically. In this article, we'll show you how to find out what plugins you have installed and how you can update them.

First, you need to check what Firefox plugins you have installed.

To do this, open the Firefox panel and select Add-ons (Fig. 1).
