In the latest versions of Firefox, you have the ability to use their free built-in PDF viewer, rather than using one that you have had to download to check out what PDF files have to say. However, some people have emailed in and have requested a way to disable this new feature in Firefox.
Tired of getting suggestions through the search box in Firefox? There is a really easy way you can disable that feature of the browser. These suggestions are data pulled in from the search engines themselves. Firefox merely retrieves the search suggestions from the search engines, and displays the list to assist you in selecting a search phrase that has been used by many other users throughout the world before.
Save Text to File is a Firefox add-on that allows you to save highlighted text to an external text file. This is one of those features you never realize how handy it will be until you start using it. I often like to save ‘bits of articles and other things I read to go back to it later. This makes saving that information in a new location all that much easier.
Would you like to zoom in on a webpage with tiny text? Maybe you need to make a website with huge text a little smaller? Thankfully, Firefox makes it really easy to zoom in and out of a webpage to make it more readable. You can do it with the keyboard, your mouse, the menu or via the toolbar menus.
The BYTubeD add-on for Firefox will let you download a ton of videos from YouTube, all within a matter of minutes. All you need to do is collect the links for the videos you want to download and let this great extension do the rest of the work.
With most modern browsers, the idea of having pop-up advertisements is a thing of the past. However, sometimes you do need to see a pop-up window. Most often I see this with websites that have old membership areas that haven’t been updated in a long time. I also have this problem on my bank’s website too. So how can you tell Firefox to let certain domains show pop-up windows?
The Nautripolis theme for Firefox is a blend of both new and old designs. You get a mix of Areo and a mix of the Gnome art style too. In the past I have looked at this theme and didn’t really find it that functional – however, after giving it a second look I do have to say it is not that bad.
I use Facebook a lot, both for work and for play – so if there is anything I can do to make my Facebook browsing experience better, I am all for it. That is where SocialFixer comes into play. This is a fantastic extension for Firefox that fixes tons of annoyances with Facebook. You have full control over which ones you use and which ones you do not, so let me dive a little deeper into some of the tweaks you can make.
Do you want to customize the Gmail interface to your liking and strip away the ads? The Firefox extension, Gmelius, will do that and much more. It is the sleekest Gmail related add-on for Firefox I have seen in a long time.
