Mozilla (+Firefox) user pref/extensions

(mentioning things not easily found by looking through options...)

These are only from a typical users perspective, not hardcore/web developer needs (like I'm typical)

Site icons

Here's the setup I run, BTW, some are defaults...

  • browser.chrome.favicons = true
  • browser.chrome.load_toolbar_icons = 2 (wouldn't try that on dialup :-)
  • browser.chrome.site_icons = true

(See Hidden Mozilla Prefs by Pratik Solanki)

Popup blocking

This means a website doesn't take over the "Window Open" popup

  • dom.disable_window_open_feature.location = true
  • dom.disable_window_open_feature.menubar = true
  • dom.disable_window_open_feature.resizable = true
  • dom.disable_window_open_feature.status = true
  • dom.disable_window_open_feature.titlebar = true
  • dom.disable_window_open_feature.toolbar = true


I couldn't live without Adblock.
I run the latest nightly, and just don't see Ad's anymore (after spending a little time training it on what I did/didn't want).


Yep, couldn't live without it either. Grab at SmoothWheel
If your on a fast compluter, it beats the built in smooth scroll, especially the "smoothness" and deacceleration coming to the end of a page...

Mozilla 1.7 RC 1 Released

The latest Mozilla Suite to be released is 1.7 RC 1.

Hopefully lots of people download and "push" the release to see if we can find any problems/crashers...
