The New Firefox Home Page

The New Firefox Home Page

Mozilla plans to make a bunch of changes in the next two versions of the Firefox web browser, and users who are running either the beta or aurora version of the browser right now get a taste of those changes already.One of the changes is a new home page. Firefox users should not confuse this page with the homepage that they can set freely in the web browser though. The home page is displayed to new users who install Firefox for the first time on the system, when you enter about:home in...

Auto Refresh Select Tabs In The Firefox Web Browser

Auto Refresh Select Tabs In The Firefox Web Browser

Have you ever been on a website where you waited for something to happen? Maybe it was on the Yahoo Mail website where you have been waiting for the registration confirmation email of a service that you just registered with, or you are on eBay waiting for the auction to end. If you are impatient, you may have tapped on the F5 key every few seconds to reload the page to see if anything has changed yet.That’s fine and doable if you are waiting for one page to reload with the information...

Google Chrome Reveals Extensions To Websites

Google Chrome Reveals Extensions To Websites

I may be old-fashioned in this regard but I prefer websites and companies to know as little about me as possible, unless the information are used for a service that I make active use of. I do not mind Amazon knowing that I’m an adult male, as this is blocking recommendations and offers aimed at a female audience on the site.Ideally, sites that I do not have an account with should know nothing about me. The Polish security researcher Krzysztof Kotowicz discovered a possibility to fingerprint...

Tranquility Improves The Readability Of Websites In Firefox

Tranquility Improves The Readability Of Websites In Firefox

Tranquility is definitely not the first add-on or bookmarklet that is improving the readability of websites in the Firefox web browser. We have covered quite a few apps that can do that for you, from Readable over Tidyread to the recently released Evernote Cleary extension. All tools work considerably well in the browser. They have in common that they turn a common web page into a compressed page that is displaying the article or post on the page, and barely any other page element. This...

Firefox Could Get H.264 Support After All

Firefox Could Get H.264 Support After All

Remember the HTMl5 video war from about a year ago? When browser manufacturers left and right claimed allegiance to H.264 or WebM? For the user, such moves can often be disastrous, anyone remembering the Blu-Ray vs. HD-DVD uncertainty knows what I’m talking about. With HTML5 video it came down to Microsoft and Apple supporting H.264, and Mozilla, Google and Opera supporting WebM. Google furthermore had support for H.264 built into the browser, but promised to remove support completely...

Find Out What’s Currently Planned For Firefox 13

Find Out What’s Currently Planned For Firefox 13

Even though Mozilla would prefer users not to look at Firefox versions anymore, it is something that I like to keep track of to see what’s changing in the browser. It is easier to compare Firefox 12 to Firefox 13, than it is to compare Firefox released in February, with Firefox released in March. Why? Because you might end up comparing the same browser versions, and come up with zero changes or feature additions otherwise.Firefox 13 is currently being prepared to be moved to the Aurora...

Schedule Websites To Open Automatically In Firefox

Schedule Websites To Open Automatically In Firefox

With a default installation of Firefox, there are two options to open websites automatically in the browser. The first is to configure the browser to load one, multiple or random, homepages on start, or when you open a new tab. Your second option is to load the previous browsing session when the browser starts.There is however no option to load websites on schedule, say once a week on a specific day, or even once a year. The extension Morning Coffee offers to open sites on a specific day...

Private Browsing Without Closing The Active Firefox Session

Private Browsing Without Closing The Active Firefox Session

One of the things that has always annoyed me in regards to Firefox’s private browsing mode was the fact that the browser did close the active session before switching to that mode. And while Firefox offers to save the active session, that is the open tabs and other session related information, it is nowhere near as comfortable as a solution that would spawn a new private browsing window without affecting the active session.Google Chrome and the Opera web browser handle the private...

Firefox 11 Stable Released

Firefox 11 Stable Released

Firefox users who cannot wait to update the stable channel of the web browser from version 10 to 11, can download the new version from the official Mozilla ftp server or third party download sites early. Please note that while it is unlikely that the final version will get replaced in last minute, it has happened in the past. It is recommended to wait for the official release announcement if Firefox is running in a productive environment, or if you do not need to have access to the new...

Mozilla Begins Work on Firefox Metro Version

Mozilla Begins Work on Firefox Metro Version

If you have followed the development progress of Microsoft’s upcoming operating system Windows 8 closely, you may know that it ships with two different versions of the Internet Explorer browser. First a standard desktop version of Internet Explorer 10, and then a second version for the new Metro user interface part of the operating system.This opens up a new predicament for other browser developers as their browsers suddenly only work in one part of the operating system, and not the...

Google Play My Music Hotkeys for Firefox

Google Play My Music Hotkeys for Firefox

Google Music has been moved to the new Google Play subdomain along with the Android Market, part of Google Books and Google Movies. The main purpose for the move was to consolidate all services under one address, to make it more attractive and accessible to users of the service. The main aim of the service is to create a counterweight to Apple’s iTunes service which is also offering different media in one interface.Google Music users who open the service’s website now are automatically...

Mozilla Retires Add-on Collector

Mozilla Retires Add-on Collector

Remember the Firefox collections feature? No? Then you are not the only one. Back in 2009 Mozilla introduced collections to the official Firefox Add-ons repository. With this feature users could create their own add-on collections, and publish them  publicly on the Mozilla website. A collection usually listed between 5 and 30 different add-ons that other Firefox users could then install more comfortably in the browser.There was no option to install all add-ons in one go though, but a third...

Safe For Firefox Visualizes Secure Connections In The Browser

Safe For Firefox Visualizes Secure Connections In The Browser

The Firefox web browser displays several indicators in the browser interface when you are connected to a secure website (using SSL). The first indicator is the https protocol in front of the web address instead of the http protocol. The second that the company, website or service name is displayed in front of the address, and that it is highlighted in color.Firefox distinguishes between standard secure connections, and sites that use Extended Validation certificates. The former are highlighted...

Hide Watched or Bland Videos On YouTube

Hide Watched or Bland Videos On YouTube

If you are a regular on the video hosting site YouTube, you might feel that the site is missing options to hide or remove videos. This can be interesting for subscription videos that you have no interest in or that you have already watched. YouTube offers no controls to remove watched or bland videos from your list of subscriptions, or the new channel listing on your start page.The userscript YouTube Tweak changes this by adding delete buttons to those listings so that you can remove videos...

Mozilla Personas Renamed to Background Themes

Mozilla Personas Renamed to Background Themes

And the confusing name changing continues. If you are a Ghacks regular you know that Mozilla made the decision earlier on to rename their email-based login system BrowserID to Mozilla Persona. The issue here was that the name conflicted with Personas, which provided Firefox, Thunderbird and SeaMonkey users with the means to change their program’s skin easily.Mozilla therefor made the decision to change the name of Personas as well, to avoid one being mistaken for the other. The new...
