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!

Enjoy!

Browsers – Duplicate bookmarks, keep notes and save time!

Posted in Browser, How to, Methods with tags , , , on November 17, 2014 by Sirusdark

Hello!

Here’s a quick tip on bookmarking (aka favorites)!

Adding #

Simply add # to the page’s URL (address) you want to bookmark and type after that character whatever info you want. Make sure there’s no spaces between words. That’s it!

Example

This :
http://www.sirusdark.ca/
Becomes this :
http://www.sirusdark.ca/#send-feedback-css-corrections

This works for any web browsers and the real beauty is if you copy that URL or export your bookmarks to another browser or a text file, you won’t lose those notes as they’re “part” of the address.

Duplicates case Duplicates

It’s also useful when you want to save a bookmark you’ve already bookmarked, but want to add a different note/comment along. Some browser allow duplicates, some don’t. This trick allows you to bypass such restrictions.

Enjoy!
