Now living in the dusty plains of northern Texas, I don’t do a lot of surfing. Actually, I can honestly say I have never surfed before. For those of you who do surf without a keyboard, WindFox is an extension to take with you to the beach.
Have you updated your version of Firefox yet?
Mozilla Corp. Thursday updated its Firefox browser to fix 7 flaws, including 4 pegged by the open-source developer as “Critical.” Of the four critical vulnerabilities patched in Firefox 188.8.131.52, none are currently being exploited, Mozilla said in detailed descriptions of each fixed flaw. In fact, Mozilla said in several of the descriptions that it was not sure whether the specific vulnerabilities could be exploited, but had issued patches just in case.
Easter eggs hidden away inside of programs is nothing new. What I didn’t know till this morning was that even Firefox has a few tricks up it’s sleeves.
It was a lot of fun to read but one thing that really struck me as interesting was this about:mozilla “Easter Egg” that they mention. The Book of Mozilla has been something that even the first version of Netscape has had in it. You can pull it up in Firefox/Netscape by typing in about:mozilla into the Address Bar and pressing Enter.
With pumpkin season close upon us, and with Halloween only a few weeks away, it may be time to start making plans – and maybe some stencils.
Can you beat this jack-o-lantern from last year with one of your own? Better start practicing now.
I am not really that big of a sports fan. If you are not wearing wrestling tights or boxing gloves, you are not going to get my attention. I shouldn’t let me hate for other sports stop me though from spreading the word about a cool sports-related extension I found though.
One of the best tools I have found thus far for backing up your settings and profile in Firefox is MozBackup. I have tried them all, and this freeware program is the one I keep coming back to.
MozBackup is a simple utility for creating backups of Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, Mozilla Suite and Netscape profiles.
It seems like some other backup programs for Firefox miss something, or don’t restore just right. MozBackup does just about everything right, and hasn’t done me wrong yet.
One of the few annoyances I have found with Firefox 2.0 is there was no way for me to add Rojo in as my feed reader of choice. By default, if you don’t use one of the recommended ones, you are out of luck for right now. I decided to look around to see if I could find a solution though.
Gabbly is a very cool chat service. What is so cool about it? It allows you to instantly connect with any number of people viewing a single Web site. Any service like this must have a Firefox extension that is equally as great, right?
Finally the extension we have all been waiting for! Now we can have MC Hammer functionality built right into our favorite browser.
Adds ‘STOP! Hammer Time..’ functionality to FireFox – Simply go to “view -> toolbars -> customise” and swap your stop button for the hammertime button!
Remember learning how to convert one form of measurement to another in school? I never really liked those few weeks in class, and now I feel vindicated that I didn’t learn a thing. You know why? Well, I have found a Firefox extension that will do all the hard work for me.
