Better PDF Downloads in Firefox

I hate it when a PDF opens up inside of my browser, no matter which one I am using. It wastes my time and I would rather not have Adobe get it’s mitts all over my beautiful Firefox interface. Now you can either poke it back with a stick – which is not the easiest thing to do Online – or you can pick up the PDF Download extension fore Firefox. This extension allows to choose if you want to view a PDF file inside the browser (as PDF or HTML), if you want to view it outside Firefox with your default or custom PDF reader, or if you want to download it!

PimpZilla Theme for Firefox

PimpZillaPimpZilla is probably the best looking ugly theme I have ever seen created for Firefox. They have updated the style yet again – this time for Firefox 2. Oh yes, it is as unique as it has ever been.

Probably the most tacky & overdone piece of GUI design ever. Accept no less: Surf in style and browse like a king!

I would say that is an understatement for sure.

Find Torrents on the Web

Need help finding your torrent seeds via the Web? Now you can search for and wide. You can search every torrent search out there today. Frankly though, I doubt you will find what it is you are looking for. Why not try to search them all at once – and spend more time download and less time searching? That is what the Torrent Finder Toolbar delivers.

Torrent Finder Toolbar is a torrent search toolbar for Firefox, which enables users to search over 100 top torrent sites and trackers from their Firefox browser.

Interview With Asa Dotzler

Asa is a very interesting guy. I have to thank him somewhat for the popularity of Firefox Facts and him making mention of it on his blog (as well as giving me feedback on the eBook). Check out this interview with him as he discusses the new commercials that Mozilla is going to be pushing out to a TV near you – sometime soon.

Later today Firefox will begin broadcasting, for the first time, four “fan-produced” commercials on prime time television. Initially the ads will only run in the San Francisco and Boston regions, but this will be expanded over time.

The 4 video ads are a sampling of approximately 300 clips which were submitted to Mozilla’s Firefox Flicks program. The theme of the ads is that Firefox is “the safest, fastest and most enjoyable way to experience the Web.” The ads are also partly sponsored by Firefox fans – and Mozilla will insert the names of those sponsors at the end of each commercial.

iMacros for Firefox

When it comes to doing little every day tasks via your browser, there really should be an easier way of getting things done. For managing all these smaller jobs, I would suggest you check out iMacros.

iMacros for Firefox relieves the repetition of checking on the same sites every day, remembering passwords and filling out web forms. Web professionals can use the add-on for functional and regression web testing of web applications.

Black OldFactory Theme for Firefox

OldFactoryNow I am not going to call this theme ugly, I am instead going to use the word “unique”. It is very unique in the sense that I have yet to see another one like it. It is very different from the rest of the themes out there because it is very dark in nature. I also really enjoy the use of levers as buttons as well.

It might not be for everybody, but for those goth friends of yours – it might be right up their alley.

Firefox Does Not Go Any Faster

I feel somewhat vindicated today. Why? Well after reading this post over at Windows Skills, I feel like the world makes a little more sense. I had never noticed any difference when installing these extensions or programs that were suppose to make Firefox faster. Turns out they might not do a thing.

There are many articles and tools which promise to increase your browsing speed. Well, I usually don’t like spending too much time on this but today I decided to try a small tool and show you the results. I’m sure the guys at TotalIdea did a good job looking for ways to improve our browsing speed if we use their freeware application so I didn’t spend more time looking for something else.

Read things over for yourself, leave your comments and let me know what you have to say on the subject. Can you really get Firefox to go any faster that it already does?

Change or Disable Tab Overflow

It seems like with Firefox’s tab overflow features that were released in Firefox 2, people either love it, hate it or want to change it. Now I have had several E-mails sent to me looking for the best way to get at least two of those done of those done. (Not really sure if I could help you love it.) Luckily for you and me I have found a guide that will help you do just that.

Some folks, including myself do not like the tab overflow feature that was added to Firefox 2. For those of you who are not familiar with this feature when the width (in pixels) of the tabs becomes less than set amount (default is 100 pixels) Firefox will add scroll buttons to each end of the tab bar (see sample here). The purpose of this feature was so that all the tabs open will have a minimum width of 100 pixels. At 100 pixels the tabs are still relatively readable.
