Bring the Legend of Zelda to Firefox

Zelda Theme for Firefox

Well, they did it with Mario – so why doesn’t the Legend of Zelda deserve a Firefox theme?  MoZelda (get it? Mozilla = MoZelda) is an awesome looking Firefox 3.5 theme that will be helping you battle Moblins before you know it.

With what looks to be some original art, mixed with some Link shots from the latest Zelda game, this theme is very visually appealing and colorful.  Also, it scores points with me because it is Zelda, probably one of my favorite video game franchises to date.

Grab the MoZelda theme while you can, before Gannon’s evil copyright lawyers come to ‘nab this treasure.

Link Tour Through the Firefox Knowledge Base

Firefox Knowledge Base The Firefox Knowledge Base has grown to become a pretty helpful tool when it comes to looking up or reading through documentation on some of Firefox’s features.  However, I bet you have not yet taken a deeper look at this great service provided by the Mozilla team.

As an example, did you know you can browse through all of the articles posted here:

They also provide you with a support forum too, so you can browse through past questions or post your own:

You might also want to register, so that you can help out as a contributor or just gain more access to the tools provided as a user. 

Also, you can’t forget about the awesome live chat available too.

As you can see, there is a lot to love about this support resource.  If you consider yourself a Firefox expert, you could always donate your time and contribute in a number of different ways.  If you are just a regular user, this is a good spot to bookmark just in case Firefox isn’t working right.

Has the Knowledge Base helped you, or is it still missing features you would like to see?

Copy a Link’s Name

I know I run into this issue from time to time and have yet to find a good solution.

It is hard to select the text of a link and not click on the link by accident. The Copy Link Name extension gets rid of that issue and gives you right-click access to copy the text you need. It copies the name (source anchor) of a link. Just a small extension that adds a context menu item to copy a link’s source anchor. Sure it could do more – but it does not have to.

Extensions 101

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.
