In honor of the 500 million download mark we’re celebrating by raising 500,000,000 grains of rice in one day to help feed the world’s poor. Since we have reached the milestone, it is time to flock to freerice.com and attempt to push the days total over 1/2 billion. This is just a foreshadow to where one day Firefox will be. Food for thought, uh, better yet, Food for Lives; if we reach 500 million grains of rice, that’s a direct contribution in feeding 25,000 people for one day! Donate now, http://freerice.com

Easily Stop Firefox from Consuming Your Cpu Cycles

Easily Stop Firefox from Consuming Your Cpu Cycles published on No Comments on Easily Stop Firefox from Consuming Your Cpu Cycles

You may be thinking that you have done all the things to stop this nasty habit of Firefox. But have you tried this? I’ve done this is Firefox 2.0.0.3 but this will work with all the other versions of Firefox. Ok! here’s the trick.

1. Type about:config in the address bar and press Enter to get the Firefox expert configuration page.
2. Type browser.cache.disk.capacity in the Filter text box.
3. Modify the value to 16384
4. Restart Firefox and there you go!
After doing this, CPU usage for Firefox should stay under 10%

I’m sure that I’m having all the Fun with Firefox, But are you sure, that you are not missing anything? If your answer is “no”, then you gotta checkout these Bookmarking and Social Sharing Add-ons, If your answer is “Yes”, you still got to make sure you haven’t missed anything. And if any of those names are unfamiliar to you, believe me young grasshopper!, you have already missed enough, so grab it now!!! don’t miss any Firy fun anymore! -SeeJay

Hi!
Remember some guys blamed me that there’s no use in opening Firefox inside Firefox? 👿 . Ok! Here is an useful one. 😀
You know what happens when you type a “word” in the Firefox address bar right? yes it gives a Google search on that “word”. As an example if we type “wordpress” in the address bar and press Enter key then Firefox will Google for “wordpress”.
But what if you want to go to wordpress.com or wordpress.org ?. Ok here is the trick!
First open a new tab in Firefox by pressing Ctrl+T type “ANYTHING” in the address bar and press Ctrl+Enter It will automatically add http:// and .com and go to http://www.ANYTHING.com
If you press Shift+Enter It will go to http://www.ANYTHING.net and pressing Ctrl+Shift+Enter will automatically add http:// and .org and will go to http://www.ANYTHING.org
How cool is that?… 😕 well, not that cool.But I’m sure its useful

Firefox Logo on my front gate!

Firefox Logo on my front gate! published on 1 Comment on Firefox Logo on my front gate!

Hey! this crazy idea came to my mind while I was having an evening walk with Firy (Firefox’s pet name).Hm…. yeh!yeh!! yeh!!! I know what you are going to say. How can you have a walk with Firefox? right? Well, Its true that firy can’t walk in the road or in the beach. But there is a fantastic place where you can take firy (firefox) to a walk. Yes! the World Wide Web (WWW) 😀 Is there any better places to go with the most romantic browser of all? Anyways this isn’t what I’m going to tell you.
So this is the idea which came to my mind. My dads going to have a new front gate to our garden and he is planning to have a Design (maybe the symbol of our family 😀 ) on it. And you have already guessed what I am planning to have as the Symbol right? yes, what else? Firefox logo 😀 Wow! it rocks me when imagining how the local geeks 😯 will behave when they saw the Ff logo on my gate 😈 I’m sure they’ll become green with Jealousy :mrgreen:
But there are some problems in making this possible. I’m not sure whether the local gate manufacturers are capable of redesigning the Ff logo with metal. And the biggest one is making dad’s mind to take the decision to use Ff logo, Maybe I’ll win these problems and succeed, or maybe dad will send me to a mental hospital to have a brain chk 🙄 Believe me there’s a huge possibility for the send one 😆
Oh! And I was wondering, Are there any Firefox fans who got the Firefox logo on your gate or on the front door? Or do I have to take the Patent for this gorgeous Idea? 🙄
Happy Hacking!
