  • Replied in New Firefox
    Zero crashes here with Firefox 57 on Windows or Linux. I like it. However, Firefox has received a huge overhaul and, despite many beta cycles, I'm sure there are a few bugs that need crushing
  • Well, I'm celebrating the fact that we finally put that old chestnut to bed :-) Good grief, how many threads did we have to endure on that imaginary catastrophe?
  • Oops. Got it! Send three and fourpence, we're going to a dance :-)
  • It looks more like any other DNS service to me. DNS filters for known malware sites can be useful but I worry that some folks will be misled into thinking Quad9 gives them comprehensive protection ...
  • Opendns? It's a direct competitor. Not yet proven of course but maybe it will turn out better (or maybe not). Either way, folks should think about who they wish to share their online habits with as ...
  • Hey, it works for Apple, Facebook, Google, Twitter et al :-)
  • I think you can tweak that with about:config: browser.download.autohideButton;false
  • Try going into the Customize screen as described before. You may have one or more "Flexible space" widgets on your toolbar. They will show up as empty boxes. If so, drag them off the toolbar.
  • I don't really understand what you're trying to change. I don't see much empty/waste space that you could extend those into. You can put the download button back. Right-click in the empty space to ...
  • Well, DNS is only gonna help if the malware embeds a hostname rather than an IP address. If I was writing the code, I'd embed multiple IP's and I know that at least some malware does that. Quad9 ...
  • It's a pseudo-random alpha-numeric profile identifier generated automagically by Firefox.
  • It should be fine even if you need to tweak the pt size. I'll post one more version of the whole CSS. This one is pretty much what I was aiming for at the outset: /* urlbar font */ #urlbar { font-f ...
  • Here's mine: C:\Users\malch\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxxxxx\chrome\userChrome.css I'm guessing you need to create a chrome folder within your specific profile and place it in there.
  • This is still very much a work in progress but here's my current userChrome.css assembled from various bits I found online: /* urlbar font */ #urlbar { font-family: monospace !important; font-size: ...
  • That would be more complicated. But the macro could be pre-loaded with some common search forms -- the user could just just off those he or she wanted to be included. Major search engines, mapping ...
  • Heh. You could maintain your favorites in an Excel spreadsheet: * Category * Caption * URL It would be pretty easy to create a macro that would spit out a nicely formatted HTML document that could ...
  • Hmmm, I stand corrected. It seems that you can use file:/// for the FF Home page. However, I use an extension to set my New Tab page to the home page. And that says: "Access to local files via URL ...
  • Yes, but it's not complicated. Mine looks like this: Here's the corresponding markup: http://malch.com/nikon/search.txt Most of it is concerned with putting those 4 boxes in a nice tidy table.
  • Not if you keep the link captions short. I have a couple of hundred links showing on one page (without scrolling) plus 4 search forms. No. HOME opens a web page that happens to contain a bunch of ...
  • That's what I do too. In fact, my home page even has several search boxes on it. One for Google, one for Google Maps, one for Wikipedia, one for IMDB... Except Firefox Quantum :-( They prohibited ...
