Then it is a rage that builds up inside us because we don’t know how to remove that accidentally added word from the dictionary. Don’t worry, I am here to help!
Can you make Firefox forget about you visiting one website, without clearing out the rest of your saved browser history? Yes, you can – and it is fairly simple to do. This is one great Firefox feature that most do not know about it – so this is why I share it with you today.
Is your right-click context menu in Firefox getting a little bloated? If you go through a lot of extensions for Firefox, you can sometimes end up with more items in the right-click menu than you want. Then again, sometimes you might just want to move one option to the top while leaving lesser used options at the bottom. The Menu Editor extension for Firefox will let you customize that right-click context menu.
Every so often, a program we install will substitute an unwanted toolbar or default search engine in Firefox and we do not want it there. What is a Firefox user to do?

Finding your browsing to be a little cramped? Want some room to stretch your legs or just see more of the web page you might be currently visiting? FlexBar, a new add-on for Firefox, will give you all the screen space saving tools and resources you need at the touch of a button.
Once FlexBar has been installed, you can very easily configure the visibility of all your menu bars, sidebars, and information bars in Firefox. You can choose to always show, never show or just hide any toolbar in the Firefox interface too.
If you are a user of the Stylish extension, you will love this little tip. I use iGoogle, however I never stay on the page long enough to use the embedded chat they included a while back. However I am happy to say I found a solution.
Install this Stylish user style:
Once doing so, the chat (as you seen in the screenshot above) disappears. To make it work for me, I had to change:
However, once that was done – it worked flawlessly. An easy hack for a very lovable web page. Got to love these Stylish user styles!
I got an e-mail from a reader of Firefox Facts, and they wanted to know how can you re-organize your search engines in Firefox’s search box that lives in most people upper-right hand corner of Firefox.
This can easily be done via the built in search engine manager.
Click on Firefox’s search box, as if you were going to change search engines, and look at the bottom for a menu selection titled, “Manage Search Engines”. Clicking it will bring up the Manage Search Engine List. From here you can:
- Edit Search Engine Keywords
- Move Search Engines Up or Down
- Remove a Search Engine
- Restore the Default Search Engines
- Get More Search Engines
- Enable/Disable the “Show Search Suggestions”
There you have it. Now Firefox has not always had this option. Back in previous versions, you had to do some heavy duty hunting and pecking to really edit and organize your search engine selections. This at least gives you a more user friendly interface, and I am all about the user friendly around here.
