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!

Now this extension delivers something I have never seen before. FavLoc allows you to set folders as “favorite locations” to which you can easily download. FavLoc menus will appear on the File menu (for saving pages), the context menu (for saving images and links), and on the download prompt. For those of you who have been needing a quick and easy way to send Web content to your PC in an organized way – this one is for you!
The folks over at Download.com have posted a pretty nice round up of the best themes out there for Firefox. Did they miss your favorite? Let me know!
Our first Firefox theme gallery offered new ways for surfing the Web with Firefox 1.5, but not all of those themes came along with the recent upgrade to Firefox 2. We’ve dug deep to find the best and the brightest themes for the new version of the open-source browser. A few are repeat performers, while others are fresh looks for enhancing your daily Web surfing. If you don’t have Firefox, download it now.
If you have not upgraded to Firefox 2 yet, then there is a security alert that you should pay attention to. Here is the inside information.
As part of Mozilla Corporation’s ongoing stability and security update process, Firefox 184.108.40.206 is now available for Windows, Mac, and Linux for free download from mozilla.com (http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-older.html). We strongly recommend that all Firefox 1.5.x users upgrade to this latest release. This update is available immediately in 37 languages including German, French, Spanish, Japanese, Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Korean, and more.
Note: Firefox 1.5.0.x will be maintained with security and stability updates until April 24, 2007. All users are strongly encouraged to upgrade to Firefox 2 (http://www.getfirefox.com).
Media Pirate is an image and video downloader and makes it easy to
steal barrow media content from websites like blip.tv, break.com, dailymotion.com, ifilm.com, media.putfile.com, metacafe.com, myvideo.de, video.google.com, vidilife.com, youtube.com, zippyvideos.com and many other Web sites.
Yes, it is true! Children are dancing in the street because Firefox 2 is being released today. If you are so excited that you can not wait till your version of Firefox updates itself – your in luck. Firefox 2 is already sitting on the FTP servers ready for you to download.
Oh you didn’t know? World Firefox Day is coming soon, and the folks at Mozilla want you to be apart of it and the browser.
This new site, located at World Firefox Day will guide users through the simple steps of 1. selecting one person (and only one person) who needs to be saved. 2. inviting them to download and install Firefox. 3. registering to have both of their names listed and celebrated in an interactive display inside of the Firefox 2 program.
I hate the fact that I have no control when it comes to loading PDF files in the browser. That is the reason I picked up the PDF Download Firefox extension. 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! This is how PDF controls should have been done in the first place.
For those of you out there that like to stay on the leading edge of browsing, the newest release out of Mozilla’s lab has hit the streets and is gaining steam. Personally, I think I’ll wait for the final version to come out. If you are interested though, here are the links:
The VideoDownloader Firefox extension has been getting a lot of buzz lately, so I thought I would look at an alternative way of downloading media content via your favorite Web site. The UnPlug Firefox extension scans web pages and tells you where things like media players and other embedded objects are getting their data from, and displays it as a simple hyperlink.
