Tricks For Mozila

Magic Tricks in Firefox web browser

Jump to Tab
Press Ctrl+1-9 [ any number from 1 to 9 that'll make you jump to that tab window - Yes, this is firefox

Stop Firefox to stuck
If Firefox takes up too much memory on your computer, you can limit the amount of RAM it is allowed to us and you feel it is working slow and painfully taking too much of virtual memory. Go to about:config, filter “browser.cache” and select “browser.cache.disk.capacity”. Right click and select modify and change value to 15000 especially for computer connected to fast internet connections - slow dial up connections for many linux users I recommend using more memory as you may have a large swap memory ( RAM in windows ).

Stop Firefox Thinking delay
Also, right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Change it to “ nglayout.initialpaint.delay ” and set its value to “0″. This value is the amount of time the internet browser waits before it acts on the information it receives.

Customize Tab close preferance
Type 'about:config' in address bar ( Where you type etc. ). Edit the preference for “browser.tabs.closeButtons”. Here are the meanings of each value:

* 0: Display a close button on the active tab only
* 1:(Default) Display close buttons on all tabs
* 2:Don’t display any close buttons
* 3:Display a single close button at the end of the tab bar (Firefox 1.x behavior)

It will appear like this given in steps

step 1 : about:config
step 2: browser.tabs.closeButtons
step 3 : Right click on " browser.tabs.closeButtons " - and click "Modify"
step 4 : Use " 0" for close button to appear in one tab

Use any Search engines like or from your address bar
This applies with Bookmarks also.
First for keywords.
Step 1 Find any search engine - in this case - I'll open - right click on the search bar - menu opens up
Step 2 Click on add a keyword search( here is the catch - Why haven't you seen this before and why have you been so afraid to click)
Step 3 Start filling the box - fill anything but remember in the " Keyword " box you should type " the letter or word you'll use to access the search engine "

e.g in brief - > right click on search bar > click on "Add a keyword search" from the drop down menu > name = google , keyword = g > press ok!

Now go to your address bar ( where you type or any site ) and type "g index.of mp3 " g is the google search keyword you wrote before in the dialog box and index.of mp3 is your search > you can do this with any search engine ( Just copy it from here ) You will now be seeing a google search .Viola! it's actually quiet simple.

You can also do this with saving a entire location ; instead of using a search bar now you'll be saving a complicated address like - Hope you understood what a complicated address is. So now move forward.

Step 1 Go to "Bookmarks" in the Menu bar
Step 2 Right click on " Get bookmark add-on " and then fill the dialog box when filling the dialog box the most important thing is the location and keyword. In the location you'll fill the complicated URL ( ) you want to save > and after that use a simple keyword (remember (to make Logical keywords ( just for you to remember ) If you are trying for the first time don't be scared.)) Press Ok. Now just like a keyword search type the letter or anything you used as keyword > type it in the address bar > your whole link should open up.
