Don’t you hate it when you find something interesting on the front page of digg.com and it is already down due to the high traffic demands? So do I. Some people belly-ached over my last digg-related Firefox extension pick. Digg Coral Cache should be a winner with everybody. It turns those links into Coral Cache links or a user-specified cache-server link.

These movies might not help you use Firefox any better, but some of them are pretty fun to watch. The project is to “create a 30-second ad, in any style (live action or animated,) that brings Firefox to life for the millions of Web users who have yet to discover Firefox and the better Web experience it delivers.”
My suggestion for you? Go watch “Wheee!”, it is my favorite so far.
Why doesn’t Firefox have a print preview button/option on the toolbar? You would think that one would be a given. If this has been bugging you as much as it has been bugging me, give this extension a shot. The Print/Print Preview extension gives you back that print preview you miss.
This weekend I made a big mistake, I accidently deleted one of my folders inside of my bookmarks. I looked around for help, but there was none to be found. How did I get this folder back?
Well, all you have to do is open the Bookmarks Manager (Click on Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks). Once you are in there, hit the Ctrl key and Z key to undo your last action. You can also go up and select Edit, then Undo. Now all you have to do is train your fingers not to be so twitchy.
Can’t get enough of that memory tweaking and fixing for Firefox? Well I think I have one more resource that should help you get your fix. Firefox Tweaks, Extensions and Optimizations gives just about every memory and performance tweak I have ever read about. The best part about it all, is they are all in one place.
Chris Pirillo has just posted about a great PlayStation Portable related program that will let you read eBooks on the little system. As he also mentioned, this is a great way to thumb your way through the Firefox Facts eBook as well. Check out what Chris had to say and pick up the PSP eBook downloads he provided.
Yet another Firefox memory leak fixer has been made public, but you have to do a little editing under the hood to get it to work. I tried it out myself, and I have to say it did bring down my memory use. In fact, it cut my Firefox memory usage down by 25 percent or so. If you don’t mind messing with Firefox’s “about:config” settings, then give this a shot.
Ever wanted to know what was under those search result links in Google? With Cooliris, all you need to do is hover your mouse over the link and you get a preview of where it leads. This Firefox extension also works with Google image searches as well. Think of this as a sneak peek before you click.
