I woke up this morning to an interesting new button in my Firefox browser. This paper airplane button was resting in my toolbar and I wondered to myself, “what add-on added this?”.

Mozilla recently made a deal with Yahoo to take over the default search function in Firefox. Now, this is great news for competition and all but I don’t use Yahoo. I use Google. So, how can you set your default search from Yahoo (or anything else) back to Google? Follow these simple steps.
Recently, I started to reorganize some of my bookmarks in Firefox.

Now that the mobile version of Firefox is a lot better, I have ditched the basic browser that came with my phone and reinstalled Firefox. One nice thing about Firefox is it allows you to sync your bookmarks and more across multiple devices. This means I can access my same list of bookmarks from anywhere.

Real Kiosk is a Firefox extension that defaults to full screen, disables all menus, toolbars, key commands and right button menus. Alt+Home still takes you home.
