Posted in Browser, Firefox, How to with tags , , , , on January 7, 2018 by Sirusdark

Hello world!

First of all, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

Today I finally figured out how to friggin completely disable those pesky Web Push notifications requests in Firefox and I’m now sharing it with you! Here’s how:

1. Go in Firefox’s configurations:


2. Turn off 2 settings (just one doesn’t work – I’ve tried)

Search for these two settings and toggle them to FALSE
(either Double-click or Right-click > Toggle)


That’s it! You can now resume life.

Firefox Quantum or version 57.0 – How to downgrade

Posted in Browser, Firefox, How to, Internet, Knowledge with tags , , , on November 15, 2017 by Sirusdark


Today, my Firefox managed to update itself to version 57.0.0, aka Firefox Quantum. The latest crap from Mozilla.

If you’re like me and hate it, here’s the link to downgrade to the previous version (56.0.2 64bit): Setup 56.0.2.exe

No need to do anything special, just run the installer and you’re done. Firefox will revert to 56.0.2.

I am currently testing this new Firefox to get it to work the way it should and I’ll share my findings as soon as I can. Stay tuned!


Software Update – Firefox 56.0 finally released!

Hello dear power users!

Firefox finally released their new version and I wanted to let you all know it indeed fixes the latest crash issues – closing Firefox would close the app, but its process (firefox.exe) would keep running in background until it crashed.

This new version released 3 days ago (September 28th 2017) and since I only got back from travelling yesterday, well, let’s just say I’m not the first telling the world about it. :D




Firefox’s latest installer now installs automatically in 64 bit. If you happen to install it alongside an existing 32 bit Firefox installation, you can safely proceed to uninstall it – your personal data and profiles stay untouched!



How to filter Internet content easily under 30 seconds

Hello dear readers & visitors!

A friend of mine recently asked me if there was a way to easily filter web content so his kids and family wouldn’t stumble on adult content or other unwanted content.

Among the most simple solutions, one really stood out. It’s FREE, takes 30 seconds to implement, can be customized and in some case,┬ácan even increase your browsing speed!


OpenDNS offer such a service and it’s free! In case you don’t know what OpenDNS is, it’s one of the biggest DNS service provider out there. Also, it’s now part of Cisco. So it’s not some obscure service I’m writing about.

How can you use it? Simply edit your DNS settings in your device or router! There are 2 ways to do it: with or without an account.

Keep-it-simple method

No account, configure and forget. Add these 2 FamilyShield nameservers (DNS resolvers) in your network settings and you’re good to go! It uses a set of presets and does the job well.

Power users & granular control

Want more POWAH? Create a free OpenDNS account, add your network, customize your categories, create whitelists, etc. and even help tag websites to improve the service!

If you don’t wanna do it for your whole network (via the router), make sure you install the little IP Updater app to update your IP address to your OpenDNS account. It’s available for Linux, Mac and Windows.

Here you can find the screenshots showing you how to edit your DNS settings in every Windows versions. It’s very straightforward. If you have any questions, ask!

Now remember, no amount of security and control mechanisms will replace good teaching and being a role model to others.

Be the example to follow.

Firefox issues (v.42+ ) – How to access JavaScript Advanced Settings again

Posted in Browser, Bug, How to with tags , , , , , , , on October 15, 2015 by Sirusdark

Firefox‘s new options menu is good looking, sure. But it’s now incomplete, as some options are unavailable. JavaScript’s advanced settings is one of those “gone” settings from the new interface. In case you’re wondering what the heck it’s all about, you might wanna install that Firefox SettingSanity extension I recommended some time ago.

Configuring da configs

Here’s how to switch back to the good ‘ol menu and access those beloved Advanced JavaScript Settings:

Simply set the browser.preferences.inContent to false in Firefox’s settings, about:config (only works in Firefox).


Back in business

Once it’s turned to false, you’re good to go!
