Facebook is a tool that some of us use everyday, so we might as well make it look the way we want and add new abilities that we really need, right? FaceTweak is an add-on for Firefox that promises to be the Ultimate Facebook Enhancer. With it, you can add tons of tweaks to the Facebook interface and engine to get more out of this social networking tool.
Now, most of the time, when I see Firefox asking if I want to save my tabs for the next time Firefox starts, I quickly click through whatever I have to do to turn this extra warning off. However, I was thinking the other day, I wonder how I could toggle this interesting Firefox feature on or off again?
By default, Firefox has a pretty good pop-up blocker. It gets the job done. Sometimes, it does too good of a job and blocks a pop-up on a webpage where you want to see a pop-up though. Today, I will be showing you how to allow pop-ups for a certain domain from within Firefox.
Google recently changed the way your search results look and feel with a little more navigational help. If you are not digging the new left hand sidebar on your Google search results, and you want to remove (or just hide) it, I have two great solutions for you to try out.
Coming to Firefox, you will soon start to see your add-ons manager inside the Firefox browsing window, rather than a popup window.
Personally, I really hope they plan to do this with all the extra popup windows Firefox has, because I want everything to be integrated within the browsing experience, and it has always seemed to me that a tab would be a much better place to take care of editing add-ons, options and more.
So, do you like the planned change? You can read more about it on Boriss’ Blog.
Looking for a way to make the social networking web site, Facebook, even better? If some things annoy you about Facebook, or you are just an addict (don’t worry, your secret is safe with me) check out the Better Facebook add-on for Firefox.

While some do not enjoy the most recent enhancements to the classic Foxmarks Firefox add-on, there is a way you can get the new Xmarks to act a ‘bit more like it’s predecessor.
Turn off Smarter Search in Xmarks
The first thing you want to do is go to Tools > Add-ons and then click the options button for Xmarks. Now, under the “Discovery” Tab you can disable Smarter Search. In your Google search results, Xmarks will highlight the top three sites based on bookmarking history. Put your mouse over the special icon to the side of the search results to learn more information such as reviews, and rankings. If you don’t like it, turn it off.
Turn off Site Info in Xmarks
Next, in that same options window, you can also disable the Site Info, which will turn off the feature in Xmarks that gives you more information about a web site in the location bar. Once your done disabling things, hit the “OK” button at the bottom of the window.
There you have it, now the new features in Xmarks that some people may not like are turned off, and Xmarks starts to act a lot more like Foxmarks did.
