Lost a Bookmark in Firefox?

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.

Firefox Memory Leak Fixer – Maybe

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.

OpenBox

Right now there are not many options when it comes to opening Web sites in Firefox. The OpenBox Firefox extension gives you a few more options when opening up a new Web site. You can choose to open it in the current tab, a new tab or a new window.

diggbar Toolbar

I have been a big fan of digg.com for a long time, so I was happy to see this extension. The diggbar Toolbar extension for Firefox gives you a new way to navigate through digg’s interface. You can search the entire Web site. You can submit a story with one click. It also adds a few RSS feeds for the top digg stories. If you are a fan of digg, then you must “dig” this extension.
