Remove the Toolbar Notes in Firefox 3

More of a pain than a savior, the toolbar the toolbar tip floating boxes of help and information in Firefox tend to hurt me more than help me.  Yes, I know the reload button allows me to reload the current page, I got it!

remove-helpIf you want to disable this feature, follow these steps:

Step 1: In your address bar, type in about:config

Step 2: If given a warning, tell Firefox you promise to be nice.  Now type this into your Filter search box at the top:

browser.chrome.toolbar_tips

Step 3: Now only one result should be showing up.  Right-click where it says “browser.chrome.toolbar_tips” and select “Toggle”.  You want to turn this from True to False.  (If you want them back, just toggle it again to turn this feature back on).  Now you can go ahead and get back to your browsing.

There you have it, no more annoying popup tips coming your way getting in the way of your browser thanks to our good ol’ buddy, about:config.

Remove Firefox 2 Go Button

There is nothing wrong with the Go button and there is nothing wrong with those who like it. Hey, if I had a reason to use it – I would. Thankfully though, I have an enter key, which in turn does pretty much the same thing. Banish the Go button from your installation of Firefox 2!

What do you need to do? Well just type “about:config” and scroll down till you see this:

browser.urlbar.hideGoButton

Then change it from false to true. That’s right, get Firefox your way with just a few clicks.
