Firefox has a lot of helpful features we don’t always use or know about. One of these that gets overlooked a lot is the Quick Find feature. If you want to simply find a phrase that appears in a link on the page you are viewing, follow these simple steps:

Having a hard time finding yourself around? Locator might be the Firefox extension you have been looking for. What makes it so special? Just simply select the address, right click with mouse, “Locate on Google Map” and your place will be located on the map.
Highlight, Right Click and Hold On!
It all reminds me of that time I went on a cross country trip with a midget named Sam and $20 in my pocket. From the Golden Gate Bridge all the way to White House – we never knew exactly where we were or how to find the next place we wanted to go.
Now if we had this baby loaded up in Firefox – finding our way would have been a piece of cake.
Ok, well maybe there wasn’t a midget named Sam. Maybe it wasn’t even $20 I had in my pocket. That doesn’t change the fact that Locator makes navigation an easier task for all.
I have an handful of Firefox tips that have to do with customizing the browser. A few people have E-mailed me these in, so there are too many to thank right now. So let’s cut through the introductions and get right into the good stuff.

One of my favorite features inside of Firefox is the find toolbar. Just by hitting Ctrl and F at the same time unlocks an ability to find anything one a Web page no matter where it might try to hide. Sure, other browsers have done the find bar before, but none are as good in my opinion.
