How to turn Firefox into Opera

This is a series of Add-Ons I use to make Firefox a bit more like Opera. Personally, I use a variant of Firefox called Pale Moon which is supposed to be tweaked to have lower resource usage.

Mouse gestures:
All-in-one Gestures - Like Opera's gestures, but uglier and customizable.

Tabs:
Ctrl-Tab - Lets you switch tabs with your keyboard and gives you visual previews like Opera.
Tab Scope - Shows you a thumbnail of the webpage when you hover over its tab.

Random stuff:
Classic Opera - Random tabstuff
Select like a Boss - Gain the power to select text from inside links, like Opera 12 could do.
ReloadEvery - Reload a page periodically.
Sidebars List - Gain a sidebar panelthing that's vaguely similar and much harder to use than Opera's panels.
Speed Dial - I'm typing this because I feel the need to type something after each addon.

Re: How to turn Firefox into Opera

Opera 24 is okay, but they stripped out way too many features and practically all the things that made Opera unique. I've been chilling out on 12 for a long time, but things are starting to break here and there. Opera 12 is still the fastest, lightest browser I know of, but I needed to start looking for an alternative. Opera 24 is just a bit too heavy on the resources for my liking. I can work in Blender while having an Opera 12 window full of reference tabs without it having any noticeable impact.

Re: How to turn Firefox into Opera

24 is a nice browser, it just doesn't work well for me on my 8 year old hardware.

Re: How to turn Firefox into Opera

It's most likely been removed from Opera 15+. 15 is when they stripped out very nearly everything, and they've slowly added a handful of bits back until they reached Opera 24, but they still don't even have bookmark/speed dial syncing back up and working. It only works on Opera 12 and Opera Mobile Classic for Android.

You have a Mac, right?
