The Firefox Thread

Postby oc12 » Sat Nov 25, 2006 4:06

Firefox thread for tweaks, hacks, add-ons and other customizations. Enter here, infomation is free to the world, no payment required.


Firefox is set to having a close button on every tab. If you hate it or just want to change it back to how it was, here’s how.

1. Type about:config into the url bar.
2. In the Filter: field, type browser.tabs.closebutton
3. Hack the integer value to:
* 3 - Close button on far right of tab bar (Firefox 1.5 style).
* 2 - No close button. Must use middle-click, Ctrl+W or File -> Close Tab.
* 1 - Close button on all tabs (default).
* 0 - Close button on active tab only.


You like having a dozen or more Tabs open at once. (yes)

>> about:config
>> browser.tabs.tabMinWidth
>> #

# = 0 it gets rid of the scrolling annoyance
# = the lower the # the more tabs can fit before scrolling
(I put 50 but 75 probably would be fine for most, default is 100)


Limit RAM usage with Mozdev values:
(mine is set @ 65536 = 64MB)

>> about:config
>> browser.cache.memory.capacity

32 MB 2048
64 MB 4096
128 MB 6144
256 MB 10240
512 MB 14336
1 GB 18432
2 GB 24576
4 GB 30720


Faster Fox
>> network.http.max

2x (double) the four #'s if you have 6+mbps
1.5x, if you have 3-6mbps
Leave as default if below 3mbps

also change if above 3mbps
>> network.http.pipelining >> true
>> network.http.pipelining.maxrequests >> 8


Last Firefox has this wacky little feature that downloads pages from links it thinks you may click on pages you view, like the top result on a page of Google results. This means you use up bandwidth and CPU cycles and store history for web pages you may not have ever viewed. To change this lame crap, set the network.prefetch-next key to false.

>> network.prefetch-next
>> double click it

Dislike the default theme, change it at
https://addons.mozilla.org/themes.php?app=firefox

Mine is Nautipolis since 2003.
