I was wondering if there is a functionality or maybe another addon for Firefox were I can export all my addons into a simple list - preferably txt or html. I mean only the names because I start to lose track and want the same addons at home and work.

Extension List Dumper is an addon that can save your addons and themes as a file.

Edit: As of Firefox 30, the above addon no longer works. You can get a list of all installed addons and other information about your Firefox installation by entering about:support in the URL bar. You can also try Addon List Dumper (restartless) instead if you want to easily export a list.

Brilliant. Exactly what I had in mind. –  user48604 Mar 28 '11 at 9:04
You deserve an upvote for that but my reputation is too small. –  user48604 Mar 28 '11 at 9:06
@user48604: You have now enough rep to upvote :) –  Mehper C. Palavuzlar Mar 28 '11 at 10:38
I do now. Here it your upvote. –  user48604 Mar 28 '11 at 11:40
Addon List Dumper (restartless) is great...not exactly what I wanted but close enough for me to work with it for my needs. –  Michael Tunnell Aug 21 '14 at 22:43

or just backup everything:


FEBE (Firefox Environment Backup Extension) allows you to quickly and easily backup your Firefox extensions. In fact, it goes beyond just backing up -- It will actually rebuild your extensions individually into installable .xpi files. Now you can easily synchronize your office and home browsers.

FEBE backs up your extensions, themes, and (optionally) your bookmarks, preferences, passwords, cookies and just about everything else Firefox offers (it can even backup/restore your entire profile).

FEBE is fantastic but not for this. FEBE is great for actually exporting the extensions for backup and syncing but it does not offer what the OP requested. –  Michael Tunnell Aug 21 '14 at 21:40
