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.
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.
Need to disable some Firefox Add-ons? Personally speaking, I would consider add-ons to be themes, plugins and extensions you add to Firefox. If you need to troubleshoot a problem with the browser, disabling the Firefox add-ons you have added can sometimes be the quickest way to find the problem.
Want to give Firefox the power of speech? Text to Voice is a very cool add-on for the Firefox browser that lets you select text and have it spoken to you. It is almost like we are living in the future, hu? Select text, click the button on the bottom right of Firefox window and this add-on speaks the selected text for you. Isn’t it brilliant? Audio is downloadable.
Ever wanted to know how to start Firefox in Safe Mode? The Safe Mode in Firefox is a special mode that is usually used to help troubleshoot or fix problems with the browser. It resets some settings and disabled any extra things you have downloaded – like add-ons and themes.
After seeing friend after friend never changing the homepage in their browser, I felt like this obvious tip was worth pointing out. You can easily change the page that pops up when Firefox loads. This is called your homepage. Here is a quick and easy way you can setup your homepage (in 3 simple steps!).
Hey you, yes you over there. You are being tracked! From web analytics to ad serving, you get tracked when you visit just about any website out there. If you are paranoid concerned about such things, then you should pick up the Firefox add-on called, DoNotTrackMe.
