Firefox is the browser of dreams for many people, it has tons of extensions that enhance the functionality of the browser. Yet many people in Pakistan don’t know how beneficial these extensions are.

Believe me, there are many wonderful extensions for every one and anything you want. The following is my take on the top 10 extensions that will keep your browsing safe and secure.
