A Firefox download is a good browser whether for leisure or business. But this ease of use also exposes it to various dangers from the online world, especially when users are a bit careless of the sites they visit. That is why you need to make sure your browser is improved with upgrades for function and security. Here are some of the ways that you can do that.

To improve the functionality of your Mozilla Firefox download, you can install "plug-ins." These are basically a type of add-ons that can improve the browser's capability to recognise more types of content. As you may know, there are some file formats that are read only through patented technology that's constantly updated by its creator. A good example is Silverlight, which is made by PC creators Microsoft. You cannot view content that's delivered through Silverlight unless you have the plug-in installed in your Firefox download browser.

Another good example of plug-in is QuickTime, which is, interestingly from Microsoft's rival, Apple Inc. Some videos are streamed only through the QuickTime plug-in. To increase the functionality of your browser, you would have to install these add-ons. A more common example of a plug-in though would be Flash. This plug-in is responsible for playing FLV video formats on your Mozilla Firefox downloadbrowser.

Apart from functionality, it is important to take note of security. That is why there are also upgrades intended to increase the security capabilities of a Firefox download browser. You can install add-ons on your browser for this purpose. One of the most common add-ons installed for security is Web Of Trust, or simply WOT. This extension allows you to visit the web without accidentally visiting dangerous websites. It acts as an early alarm system that notifies you when you're about to enter a website that has security issues. In short, it saves you from websites that might send you spam and dangerous software.

A crowd favourite among security. That is why there are also upgrades intended to increase the security capabilities of a Mozilla Firefox download users would be Adblock. Also a type of security extension, this add-on lets you browse online without being bothered by pop-ups and other kinds of advertisements. Think about it. If you don't see the ads on your monitor, you won't be able to click them. That lessens your chances of falling for dubious ads that lead to infection-causing websites. It also lessens the occurrence of accidental ad clicks. Again, this saves you from the possibility of clicking a dangerous link that might send spyware or malware to your computer. That is perhaps the reason why around 800,000 copies the Adblock extension are downloaded every week. It is a very good complement to a Firefox download browser.
