Open a new tab on Firefox and type “about:support” and hit Enter. This will give you a list of all installed Firefox extensions and the Modified Preferences. From the Extensions table, copy all entries in the “Name” column. Hold down the Ctrl key and drag the mouse all the way down until you reach the end of the column. Next, open up Microsoft Excel or Google Spreadsheets and paste this data into the first column. Give the column a title something like “All Addons”.
