If Firefox is your preferred web browser, you aren’t alone. However, of all the great features offered by Firefox, it can never fully meet the needs of every online user. That’s where add-ons come in. Firefox add-ons allow you to customize your browser experience to better meet your individual needs and are great at picking up where the basic browser tools leave off.

If the primary realm where Firefox seems to be failing at meeting your individual or web development needs is with font-related elements, don’t fret. A range of font-related add-ons are now available to better meet your needs and improve your web browsing and developing experience. Here are five current Firefox font-related add-ons worth checking out.

    Could you please provide us with a link for WhatFont? I have searched it but it couldn’t be found in Firefox add-ons database 🙁

    Btw, Font Replacer is incompatible with FF5 and also was removed from the list of FF add-ons 🙁
