Need an easier way to find locations? Quick Maps will let you find locations on Google Maps in just a second.
Were you upset when Firefox changed the way it started to show regular images in the browser? I don’t mean on a webpage, but when you look at a single image after typing it’s location into the address bar. Bug 376997 added a stylesheet to top-level images that forces the background to black and centers the image. This extension removes the stylesheet, returning the background to your configured default and removing the centering.
Switching tabs in a hurry? Tab Wheel Scroll is a great add-on for Firefox that allows you to use the mouse’s scroll wheel to switch between open tabs in Firefox. It would be really nice if there was an option for switching tab groups when cycling over the Tab Groups button. Aside from that, this extension is perfect.
Want to know how to manually backup your bookmarks? Automatic systems aside, there is nothing better than diving in and manually backing your content up file by file. This way you know it is taken care of for sure. Also, many people say you don’t really have a file backed up unless you have two backups for a file. So, I thought I would take a minute to walk you through the steps of backing up your bookmarks.
You know what I find as an annoyance? Looking through my bookmarks – each one with it’s own favicon except those three at the bottom! If you are as organized and seek balance as much as I do, I bet you have found yourself in the same boat. Thankfully, IdentFavIcon will automatically generate favicons for those websites out there that do not have one.
Want to automatically save the text you type into any textarea in Firefox? Textarea Cache is a fantastic add-on for Firefox that lets you do it. This extension save the content of a WYSIWYG editor or textareas (like you see in the comments here). This is really handy if you do a long comment or post in one of these boxes and the browser caches or the webpage dies. Now you can bring your text back from the dead.
It is always a good idea to clear your browser’s cache. This is the location that all the files, scripts, and other assorted parts of a webpage are stored. By doing so, you can make sure you are viewing the latest and greatest versions of any website you are browsing. So, how can you do all of this automatically?
Here are the steps you need to take.
The cache in Firefox is a place where images, scripts, and other parts of a website are stored while you are browsing. Sometimes, clearing the cache in Firefox can help speed up the browser or help make sure you are viewing the latest version of the file or website you are looking at. Here are the simple steps to take to clear the cache in Firefox:
Print all the tabs!
The Firefox extension, Universal Print, provides Firefox with four printing modes: print this tab, print all tabs, print select tabs or print preview. These are definitely options I wish I had with the default Firefox installation. It is nice to know I can now print multiple tabs without having to jump to each one to start the process over again, and again, and again.
