Post your Firefox Answered

I've gotten so used to having my links, toolbars etc where they are, that i though "What would it be like to use someone else's customised Firefox?" Hence the topic. So go ahead and post a screenshot of your customised Firefox, call it a social experiment. It doesn't matter how over or under the top it is, I'm just curious to see. I'll get the ball rolling on this one...

Its Seamonkey, not FF, but close enough, right? I have... lets see... A decent theme chosen at random. (The default really sucks, it looks like its from pre-2000) I cant think of any plugins... I switched recently. Firefox has been using 1.4GB of my memory. Its annoying.

You running linux? I have seamonkey too and didn't like it. And 1.4 gb? Whats with that?

Yeah, I'm using linux. I'm normally running compiz and emerald, and using the Paper theme, but I was doing some CPU-intensive work, so I turned it off. As for the 1.4GB, I have 2GB in my comp total, plus 1GB of swap. But yeah, its bad. I've been having seamonkey open for about 2 days straight, and with about 50 tabs for 1 day straight, and its still under 700MB. I've used opera as well, but I didn't like it. It had something that just bugged me that I couldn't place my finger on. I was afraid of seamonkey's graphics, like the pixelated stoplight, but this new theme is a bit nicer?

I agree with you on the opera front, i hated it for no real reason. It's just not got the following that FF has. I hate it when you get forced to use IE and end up middle clicking links to try and open them in new tabs :P.

Okay, I'll humor you. Let's see, addons: macfoxIIgraphite: gives it a nice Mac-y look on XP...!@#!# XP... AdBlock Plus: eliminates ads so I don't have to wait while some high-resolution GIF loads. CookieSafe: Ony accepts cookies from sites I specifically allow dragdropupload: Allows drag & drop uploading to my library Fission: puts the loading progress bar in the address bar, like Safari Greasemonkey: Automatically clicks "view all steps" on Instructables TabX: keeps the close button on every tab, no matter how many are open IE Tab: Lets me open IE inside Firefox, for IE-only pages.

You must have a 19" monitor for that size? Or is it just high res?

. What does CookieSafe provide that isn't built in to FF? . I'm gonna have to check out this Greasemonkey. That's the third reference I've seen in as many weeks.

CookieSafe gives you more control in an easy-to-use layout of where you get cookies. You can tell it to accept cookies from a domain, but if a third party (read: ad) tries to install cookies, you have to give specific permission. All this from a little icon on the status bar. I'm pleased with it.

. Thanks! Don't think I need CS, but I've installed GM with the ?ALLSTEPS script and bookmarked greasespot.net. Can't say I understand the script, but I'm always impressed when anybody can do something useful with four lines of code.

That's a standard setting in Safari. I would have guessed it would be in Firefox too... Hmmm...

It is, but you have to go through a bunch of submenus to find it.

Oh, and the add-ons are: ABP(add block plus) Chat Zilla, Platypus-for-Greecemonkey, Faviconize, PTE-Page title eraser the second last one I couldn't live without. >whatsis... I have them there because I have the tab bar always shown, so I don't want to loose any more screenspace and the original space there was empty.

. Most keyboards have a key labeled Print Screen or some abbrev of such (mine says PrtScn). Or you can find many utils to do it for you - try searching for "screen print", "screenshot", "screen dump", etc.
