Keeping everything synced up is rather easy these days, thanks to great new features like the sync option built into Firefox 4. However, even after it has been set up – how do you get the most out of it? You could sync your desktop browser settings, bookmarks and passwords up with your cell phone. Let me show you how to securely access your Firefox history, bookmarks, tabs and passwords on the go.

Need a way to quickly do more with your mouse when browsing the web using Firefox? The MouseControl add-on is a nifty tool that allows you to switch, close, quick return, duplicate and zoom just by clicking on your mouse buttons.
Amazon is my proverbial Walmart when it comes to shopping. I do probably 90% of my online shopping at Amazon, cause they always have what I need. AmazonAssist is a new Firefox add-on that helps me find product information and promises to enhance my shopping experience. Does it?
If yesterday I showed you a small fix to a small problem in Firefox 4, today I am just throwing the kitchen sink at you. The Firefox 4 UI Fixer is a pretty self explanatory add-on for Firefox. It allows you to tweak various setting that have been changed between Firefox 3.5 to Firefox 4.
The Drag Button add-on for Firefox will give you more toolbar buttons to add into Firefox, giving you the ability to drag, minimize and more from the click of a button. Once installed, you can unleash these new customizing options by simple customizing your own toolbars from within Firefox.
Backing up and restoring your bookmarks in Firefox is a pretty easy thing to do. However, did you know that Firefox has a way you can rollback to a previous day’s bookmark backup? This can save you a lot of heartache if you have accidently deleted a folder of useful bookmarks and you need to get them back in a hurry.
By tweaking your browser cache settings from within about:config, you could see a ‘bit of a speed boost when it comes to using Firefox on a daily basis. You see, when images are loaded by default, they can be cached so they don’t need to be redisplayed or looked for again. What we will be editing today will control the maximum amount of memory used for caching images.
Working in the web hosting business, I need to often look up IP addresses and find out more about the servers that websites are hosted on every day. A Firefox add-on like ShowIP makes this job just a little ‘bit easier for me. With it installed, I can show the current IP address (or addresses) of the current page I am viewing in the Firefox status bar.
Although the feature might not get as much love as others, the Live Bookmarks function of Firefox is one to be admired. Live Bookmarks can deliver you the most recent updates to you from any website, right in Firefox. This is done through the magic of RSS (really simple syndication) and the Firefox browser. So how can you set up a Live Bookmark and what exactly are they good for? Let me walk you through the process.
Need help distinguishing which tab is which in Firefox? OK, maybe telling where one tab ends and another begins really is not that hard. However, it would help if each tab was colored. ColorfulTabs, one of my favorite add-ons for the Firefox browser – does that with style.
