To do / Notes ∞
safebrowsing is a proprietary protocol from Google.
- It's a nice way to track every URL you visit. Thanks Google!
- bug 201011 - custom key bindings no longer possible
When viewing a .txt file with the web browser, disable line wrapping.
To view the source of a URL inline
- Works on RSS feeds.
Firefox long-standing bugs ∞

- TODO - The ^w (etc) one.

Usage Tips ∞
To see full plugin paths in about:plugins
- (and restart)
- You can type in the top area, and then append a symbol to restrict the search. I already restrict matches to my history only, but now I can use this to search through things I've visited which are also bookmarks. Neat.
(was that all busted in 4.0?)
- This used to exist for the old "Mozilla", but was re-introduced in Firefox 3.0.
Multi-line selection ∞
- Select a line in Firefox with your mouse.
Press and hold the Ctrl key before selecting the second line.
Old Notes ∞
Don't show the download window, just download to the default folder:
- browser.download.manager.showWhenStarting false
TODO - When closing a tab, go to the left tab. This used to be doable in Firefox 2.
- When opening a link a new tab (middle_click), it inserts a new tab directly to the right. I want it to open at the far-right (possible with control-middle_click).
- personas is another example of the stupid direction things have been going.
- Fix accesskeys
Fix location bar
- I don't know what this means.
- Remove close buttons
- FIXME - Addons. Re-install each from source, verifying where they're located, and bundling any which are insisting on being unpacked. Can the extension filenames be corrected easily?
- then right-click in a text field, and select "check spelling"
checkplaces isn't being supported anymore .. need to find a replacement
Newer notes ∞
2016-03-20 - For some time I've been wondering what
netpreductions.sqliteis. I don't see it in Pale Moon, so I haven't researched this further.
