This freeware Firefox add-on greatly helps users insert proper coding in forums that allow text markup. As with most Firefox plug-ins, you merely drop the download onto your add-on window to install this tool. Lacking its own interface, BBCodeXtra adds commands to the Firefox context menu.

Users get immediate access to about 30 formatting commands with this handy tool. Operation is simple, merely right-click where you want to place the code, scroll down, and choose the proper item. The add-on has three menus for bbcode, HTML, and XHTML, but you can remove unneeded menu clutter by disabling any of the three menus with a single click. Each includes basic formatting codes to make text bold, italic, or underlined. Image and URL commands are also available with a click. Clipboard and list codes are featured in submenus.

We would have liked the option to remove specific codes we know we'd never use, but BBCodeXtra is still an add-on we'd recommend to any forum user or blogger.
