1) Foxy proxy

FoxyProxy is a Firefox extension that automatically switches an internet connection across one or more proxy servers based on URL patterns. A reliable proxy will allow you to check applications from different locations. It comes as a Firefox and Chrome extension.

2) Wappalyzer

Wappalyzer is a browser extension that uncovers the technologies used on websites. It detects content management systems, eCommerce platforms, web servers, JavaScript frameworks, analytics tools, and many more. It has an open-source license and is available for both Chrome and Firefox.

3) Shodan

Shodan is a search engine that lets users search for various types of servers (webcams, routers, servers, etc.) connected to the internet using a variety of filters. This search engine can play an important role in your bug hunting. This plugin can help you discover where your target web app is hosted, the IP and who owns it, hostnames, operating system, and any open ports and services.

4) HTTP Header Live

HTTP header live is a software add-on for the Firefox or Chrome browser that is used to view a website’s header information.

It can even be used to check if the vulnerability exists and also has a user-friendly interface that makes it easy for you to do fuzz testing, hash generation, encoding and more.
