Firefox v24 – JavaScript settings are gone?

Posted in Browser, Bug, How to with tags , , , , , , , on October 2, 2013 by Sirusdark

I recently noticed that the latest Firefox version was missing a very useful feature: the ability to control which behaviour of the browser JavaScript can and can’t change:

advanced_javascript_settings_ff

So here’s the Firefox extension that brings back the missing JavaScript options:

Escape from frames… with Firefox!

Posted in Browser, How to with tags , , on July 6, 2013 by Sirusdark

Frames are useful to embed content located on another page or from another website. They’re also problematic: bookmarking pages with frames is worthless since the content most likely won’t be the same (due to menu navigation usually).

Right click is your friend

When teaching computer class to newcomers, among the first things I tell them when using ANY computer is that Right-Click is there best friend. Firefox is no exception.

So all you gotta do is right-click on web pages and when you see frame options, simply open it in a new tab then bookmark THAT page.

Enjoy!
