How To Quickly View Multiple Websites At Once in a Single Tab or Page

H

Ever had the need to check on multiple websites at once? Or the need to view several websites at a glance? Or to quickly check multiple websites to make sure nothing’s wrong? Malware attacks and hacks are becoming more prevalent, and you might need to quickly just scan through the websites that you own to see if everything’s okay.

How To Use Home and End Keys in Gmail in Firefox on the Mac OS

H

While I love my MacBook Pro, I have issues with certain things in the usability department. For instance, after all that talk about a controlled User Interface and cross-application consistency, we still get hit with some pretty annoying bugs. Just like trying to use the Home and End keys in Gmail in Firefox – the default method (where you hit Cmd+left for home, or Cmd+right for end) just...

How To Open All Mailto Links With GMail Automatically in Firefox

The great thing about Firefox is that it has a built-in option to set mailto links to open up in GMail. That means you don’t have to stick with Outlook or Thunderbird or any of the desktop programs. To change your mailto handler in Firefox, just go to Tools > Options > Applications tab, and then type “mailto” into the search box. Next, click on the drop-down menu and...

It was until I went to...

How Does FireFox Weave Sync Benefit Me?

H

Mozilla Labs has been working on Weave, an official bookmark-syncing extension for Firefox. The newest version of Weave is out of beta, and on top of just bookmarks, it also supports syncing your FireFox history, passwords, preferences, location bar, and even your open tabs. It isn’t at a point where I would say that it’s reliable. For example, currently it only supports up to 25 open...

How To Select Columns of Text in Your Browser (FireFox)

H

This is a neat trick for copying columns of text from a table into some other application. This is particularly useful when you don’t need the whole table of information, and just want one column or several columns (e.g. just the usernames from a list of members).
