Here’s a list of 5 time tracker addons for Firefox which you can use to keep track of time spent working on projects and tasks. Working online as a freelancer means that you’re gonna need to do a lot of your own time tracking. Lots of apps, programs and services are available for time tracking but if your work requires you to use Firefox, then using an addon is a much better alternative. Let’s see what kind of addons we found.
Mind the Time
Mind the Time is a simplistic time tracking addon with 3 different ways of how it can keep track of time.
First it can keep track of time with automatic pausing if there’s 1 minute of inactivity. Second mode keeps track of time regardless of inactivity. Third keeps track of total time spent working on a project (not separately for each opened website/tab). Addon controls can be accessed from the top right corner and there’s also a summary page where you get an overview of your activities.

Clock It In
Clock It In is a time tracking addon which works alongside the ClockIt.In website. To use the addon you’ll have to register an account on the website.
With the addon you “clock in” after which the addon keeps track of time spent working on projects that you’ve created on the website. Each project can have specialized sessions and tasks. Clock It In is actually a new time tracking service, still in beta, with a lot of features only being planned.

FireTrack is a time tracking addon which tracks time spent on each website that you open.
Addon works automatically, you don’t have to configure options, turn it on or anything like that. To make sure that everything works correctly though, you can open up the statistics by right clicking anywhere on empty space of a website and selecting the “FireTrack” option from the right click context menu. Alternatively you can press Ctrl + Alt + i to open up the stats. Statistics pop-up in a small window, see image above.
Paymo Time Tracker
Paymo Time Tracker is another web service, a slightly more popular than Click It In and this time tracking addon works with the website.
Setting up the addon requires you to go through the usual steps. Register an account on the Paymo website, login into the addon and lastly turn on time tracking. Addon will keep track of time and update stats to the account on the website.

Timetracker by 7WebPages
Trello is one of the more popular time tracking services out there and this addon is an unofficial addon for Firefox which works with Trello.
Addon asks you to register an account with Trello and login after which you’ll get to control everything important for time tracking from a popup window.
Time tracking with Firefox can be slightly more complicated to setup (when using Paymo or Timetracker) or it can be easy, when using Mind the Time for example. We suggest that you go with the first two if you need advanced features and with the later for simple time tracking, nothing too advanced. Leave comments down below with opinions and suggestions.
