If yesterday I showed you a small fix to a small problem in Firefox 4, today I am just throwing the kitchen sink at you. The Firefox 4 UI Fixer is a pretty self explanatory add-on for Firefox. It allows you to tweak various setting that have been changed between Firefox 3.5 to Firefox 4.

Over at Mozilla Labs, they announced that they are no longer going to maintain the Prism project. For those of you who remember, Prism was Mozilla’s answer to the chrome-less browser. Something you could use to launch web applications (like Gmail) as a desktop application. The idea was to blur the line between desktop programs and online programs.
How do you quickly scroll to the top or the bottom of a webpage? While we might often think of the mouse’s scroll wheel as a pretty default “duh-like” answer – there are other and maybe better ways to get the job done in Firefox.
Along with all of your productive and useful websites out there, gaming websites or online games often get tossed to the wayside. You know what though? Supporting games and independent developers is just as important as supporting the guys making the awesome website applications we all know and love. With that said, I am happy to see Mozilla has launched the new Mozilla Labs Gaming.
It looks as if Dell is going into the browser business, with its virtualized version of Firefox. The idea here is to provide the users a virtual instance of the browser, so that malware and other bad things can’t reach your main system files. This in turn would reduce your overall exposure to drive-by malware attacks from websites that might host malicious code.
There will be no more updates for Firefox 3.0.x anymore, so if you haven’t upgraded to Firefox 3.6 – you had better hurry up and do so. That was the official word from Mozilla on the topic in a recent meeting.
The History Submenus extension for Firefox is here to make thumbing through the browser’s history easier.
Is it time yet?
Come on, is it time yet?
If you find yourself asking this question time and time again, it might be about time you picked up the Simpler Timer add-on for Firefox. This clock and timer, once installed, lives inside your status bar (or toolbar) for easy access.
On Friday, Mozilla Firefox was downloaded for the one billionth time since the release of 1.0 in 2004. To help celebrate the news, Mozilla has released a new web site called One Billion + You.
From there, you can easily post to Twitter how much one billion really is, such as:
- A bowl big enough to fit one billion goldfish would be as big as a stadium.
- One billion stacked coins would reach nearly 1,000 miles high.
- One billion centimeters is approximately the distance from Chicago to Tokyo.
- One billion seconds is roughly 31.7 years.
- One billion kilograms is equal to the weight of 250,000 elephants.
- One billion credit cards weigh as much as fifty-two blue whales.
If that wasn’t enough, you can also make up your own to share on Twitter or Facebook. Also don’t forget to decorate your Twitter icon with a Twibbon too.
The new Firefox logo has made its first appearance in the wild. So, what do you think? Do you love it, hate it, or not really see a difference?! Check out Alex Faabord’s Mozilla blog if you want to check out and pick up all the various shapes and sizes.
