Organizing bookmarks is something I have done for years but I am always surprised to see when I glance over a friend’s computer how unorganized bookmarks can be. You can save yourself a lot of time though if you take a few minutes to get your bookmarks in order. Here is how you can make new folders to organize your bookmarks.

How can you see some of the Firefox Addons that might not be ready for “prime time” or mass usage yet? Starting a while back, the Mozilla people decided to create a special section for themes and extensions like that. What is the name for this magical place? The Sandbox.
So how do you gain access to this area? It really is not that difficult. Just click on the “Register” link on the Mozilla Addons web site, fill in your information – and you are all set.
Now as a word of warning, some of these themes and extensions have good reason for not being on the public list just yet. If you feel like you want to help out you might try installing one you like, and then give the author feedback about any issues you have or any fixes that might come to mind.
I got an E-mail the other day from a guy who wanted to know if I knew of a starting spot for people to visit if they were interested in making extensions for Firefox. I had to do some hunting around – but then I found this link via Mozilla’s own Web site:
Extensions are small add-ons that add new functionality to Mozilla applications such as Firefox and Thunderbird. They can add anything from a toolbar button to a completely new feature. They allow the application to be customized to fit the personal needs of each user if they need additional features, while keeping the applications small to download.
There is a lot of good information here to be had. Check it out for yourself, and if you have any more resources please leave a comment and let us all know about them.
Not yet sure what Greasemonkey is all about? Here is one nice guide to get you started.
Greasemonkey is a Firefox extension that allows you to write scripts that alter the web pages you visit. You can use it to make a website more readable or more usable. You can fix bugs that the site owner can’t be bothered to fix themselves.
