Speed Up Firefox web browser ?? Not really

Filed under: firefox, Mozilla, Tuxicity — tuxicity @ 1:29 pm

An article about speeding up your Firefox web browser caught my interest since I enjoy enhancing my Internet experience.

Unfortunately applying all these bells and whistles, explained with wonderfully detailed screenshots, did not do anything for me and my browser.

I can imagine after all those tweaks one believes his browser is faster, and even if he noticed no improvement what so ever, would he dare to admit to it ?

Well I dare and dare others to also admit there is nothing whatsoever faster on your Firefox web-browser after these, in my opinion, bogus tweaks.

Filed under: firefox — tuxicity @ 5:52 pm


Most of the new features in Mozilla’s Firefox 2.0 aren’t readily apparent, even to a seasoned Firefox aficionado.

Interview with Firefox Founder and Creator Blake Ross

Filed under: firefox — tuxicity @ 1:53 pm

……………To answer your question, Firefox was designed to make Web browsing easier and more enjoyable for the largest number of people. This sometimes correlates with feature paucity, but not always. I think spell-checking is a great example of a feature that improves the experience and appeals to everyone without getting in the way. And “Places” is not a new feature but an upgrade of bookmarks and history to bring them into the 21st century……………

IE7 being caught by Firefox despite 100 million installations

Filed under: firefox, internet explorer — tuxicity @ 1:49 pm

Microsoft is crowing on its own blog that IE7 has just passed its 100 millionth download. What the blog doesn’t say, according to an Information Week article, is that most of the downloads are upgrades from IE6 and that the Mozilla Firefox browser continues to gain ground.

Firefox or Internet Explorer? Why Not Both?

Filed under: firefox, internet explorer — tuxicity @ 2:06 pm

I’m an unlikely Solomon, but I do know what I would order if I were in charge: Use both Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. There’s an awful lot to be gained by going through the refreshingly simple download and installation of Firefox 2 and running it alongside IE, which comes installed as part of Windows.

Change language in Firefox and Swiftfox web browsers

Filed under: Debian, firefox, Kubuntu, Ubuntu — tuxicity @ 10:09 am

First you need to install the language xpi that you want (Just click the .xpi to install it).Download .xpi file for Firefox/Swiftfox 2.0.0.1 from here.

After you have installed the xpi file, open up a new window/tab. In the addressbar copy and paste

about:config

Hit enter and you will see a list of stuff. Now copy and paste the following into the search/filter area

general.useragent.locale

Now you will se only one entry, doubleclick on it and add the code for your language (the same as the xpi file).
So if you installed the sv-SE.xpi you enter sv-SE.

After this, restart Firefox/Swiftfox and you have your preffered language.
