PostSubject: [Firefox] [tut] Hacks   Sat Apr 04, 2009 1:30 pm

heres a tutorial on how to hack firefox i made a awhile back and by made i mean found and posted somewhere

Firefox 3 about:config file is the core configuration file of Firefox. By editing about:config file we can get amazing hacks for Firefox 3. Firefox allows the users to change many preferences in the about:config file so it’s totally ethical to do it.Here is list of 21 Firefox 3 hacks & tweaks.

To get the Firefox 3 configuration file type “about:config” at address bar.

Here is List of about:config hacks for Firefox 3

1) Disable Extension Compatibility Checks
extensions.checkCompatibility = False
extensions.checkUpdateSecurity = False

2) Location Bar (Set number Auto Complete URL at Address Bar)

This is a good hack to trim down that huge auto-complete list on your URL bar. By default it displays maximum 12 URL

browser.urlbar.maxRichResults = #
Enter Number at # (3,10,12 etc)

3) Stop Displaying Website Icon (Favicon) in Address bar & On Tab = False

4) Disable Prefetch (Helpful for frequent Google searcher, low-speed internet connection or low RAM)

network.prefetch-next = False

5) Extend Spell check to forms

layout.spellcheckDefault = 2
Change Value from 1 to 2

6) Disable Blinking Text

browser.blink_allowed = False

7) Speed Tweaks

network.http.pipelining false to true
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests 30 to 8
network.http.max-connections 30 to 96
network.http.max-connections-per-server 15 to 32
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server 6 to 8
network.http.pipelining.ssl false to true
network.http.proxy.pipelining false to true

8 ) Disable Annoying Browser Behavior

Set all of above to value False

9) Remove Tab Close Button from all Tab and set A single Close Button at Right

browser.tabs.closeButtons = 3
Single Close Button to control all Firefox Opened Tabs. (value should be 3 and not 2 Thanks Andreas )

10) Disabler Browser Toolbar Tip = False

11) Show More Tabs on Single Firefox Window before Scrolling

browser.tabs.tabMinWidth = 75
Setting lesser value with reduce Tab width

12) Past Copy Content with Middlemouse Click

middlemouse.paste = True

13) Scroll webpage in One Go


14) Disable Delay Time While Installing Firefox Add-on

security.dialog_enable_delay = 0

(Zero is number of seconds Firefox should wait while installing Add-on)

15) Increase History Undo Close Tab Limit ( Recently Closed Tabs )


By default you can undo 10 recently closed tabs inorder to increase your history closed tabs. Change number 13 to as per your choice.

16) Open Firefox Default Search Bar Result in New Tab

17) Right Click View Source in Your Favorite Editor

view_source.editor.path= Path of Editor

(e.g. path C:\Program Files\npp.4.8.2.bin\notepad++.exe)

18 ) Enable/Disable Single Click to Select Whole URL in Address bar

To Enable Single Click Select URL of address bar use the below about:config Tweak

browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll = True
To disable Single Click Select

browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll = False

19) Emule/ed2k link association (Linux users) /usr/bin/ed2k
network.protocol-handler.external.ed2k = true

20) Fast Scrolling Across Tabs

toolkit.scrollbox.scrollIncrement =75
( 75 is number of pixels to scroll at a time when scrolling the tab strip’s scrollbox. (Default: 20)

21) Auto Complete URL while You type at address Bar


Many of above about:config hacks are available in Older Firefox Version, at the end if some thing goes wrong then feel free to restore your about:config to older setting see the below image of how to restore about:config

Hope you guys like these Firefox 3 hacks.

#1 may cause problems, if an old extension causes problems with new firefox you wont know till you see the problem, it will usually update the extension and shouldnt be a problem, only if you want to use an outdated extenstion should you turn this on

#3 seems pointless why wouldnt you want to see the little icon thing

#4 will slow you down if you have a good comp and good connection, but if your comp is crap it will make it slightly faster

#5 is great, makes spelling easier

#7 is good, but those numbers might not be the best for you, i would keep network.http.pipelining.maxrequests at 10 no matter what, as for the other numbers, it depends on your connection, if your connection is really good use higher numbers, if its not so good use those numbers, play around with it till you find what works for you

#11 will shrink your tabs so much that you wont be able to read the name, youll have to use the arrow thing to choose what tab you want, which makes #11 useless

#13 turns your mouse wheel into page up/down, its weird, if you like reading the entire screen then i would use it, else stick with your normal scroll

#14 is the best one here, the timer for installing addons is stupid and unneeded

#15 can save you sometimes, i have alot of tabs going at once and ill close alot at the same time to get them out of my way, something i close the wrong ones and need to reopen like 20 to find the one i closed by mistake, so mines set to 30

#16 is annoying sometimes, its easier just to leave it at false and use alt+enter if you want to open your search in a new tab

#17 is news to me, and its awesome, if you dont know what html, or page source means then it will be useless to you

#19 isnt needed anymore, its auto now

5, 7, and 14 are probably the most important
