So I'm an opera user looking to get my beloved opera features in FF...

    Many extensions do exist, I grant you (and "AdBlock" for Opera is no where near as polished)

    Two things I specifically want:

    The ability to have "Insert personal information" in a right-click menu... something I used all the time in opera.

    The ability to zoom a page in 100% increments (NOT text zoom; zoom everything for me and make it fit my screen still) this is something i use in opera all the time (I'm constantly hitting "8" for pages with small text, and then hitting "*" to go back to 100%.



    I'd also like something to replace the "Wand" tool, thought i found some extensions that did that. Which is the best to use?


    It would be great if someone threw together an "Opera Extension Pack" for FF!

    Hi zsouthboy, For zooming in a page, try this: http://www.memb.jp/~deq/mozilla/pagezoom/

    I'm afraid I can't help you on the wand. What is it exactly? If you want, here's a pretty good website that lists the extensions you can use to further emulate Opera: http://www.scss.com.au/family/andrew/opera/firefox/

    For all the tab extensions I personally prefer Tab Mix Plus since it has most if not all of the features combined. You can check it out here: https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions/moreinfo.php?id=1122&application=firefox

    I appreciate the help.

    Pagezoom doesn't do what I want it to do, unfortunately. Opera does zooming elegantly (and dare i say...perfectly?), while it's rather haphazard in firefox regardless of the method used. Look at all the text that's unreadable!

    Looks like I'm sticking with Opera (which, i'm happy with, other than the AdBlock thing)
