Speed up Firefox and Conserve Memory

No Comments »


As we all know that the Firefox browser takes a lot of our computer memory, this is of course made a slow computer performance and also affect our activity on the internet.

Why does this happen? One main cause is because Firefox itself. Although popular, it seems that Firefox is not a lightweight browser. This browser is quite fat and wasteful, because it spent a fairly high computer resource. For the first time you run it this browser (version 2) spends at least 10 mega memory in Linux, and 20 mega in Windows. The more you open tabs / web then spent the greater memory and the CPU busies all you work. Read the rest of this entry »

How to enable WebSocket in Firefox

No Comments »

WebSockets is an advanced technology that makes it possible to open an interactive communication session between the user’s browser and a server. With this API, you can send messages to a server and receive event-driven responses without having to poll the server for a reply.

As you might know, WebSocket is disabled in Firefox due to security issues (This was fixed in Firefox 6+ by implementing a newer version of the protocol that corrects the problem.) while it’s being supported in Chrome and Safari. However, you can still enable WebSocket in Firefox by opening

about:config and setting the network.websocket.enabled preferences to true

That’s it, Enjoy


Facebook Activity Log – How to

No Comments »

Recently I lost when I was unable to delete some post from my timeline and then I found that our activity log on our timeline serves many purposes.

You can use it to quickly hide old statuses you have made in the past, or delete them, you can also use it to Unhide statuses that you had previously hidden.
In addition, it shows you comments that you have made on other peoples’ stories/statuses/pictures and will allow you to delete those too, all in one convenient place.

To get there, go to your Timeline, and click on Activity Log.

That will open the activity log, and then you can scroll down to where that story is (or use the date links at the bottom) to find the post/story you want to hide or unhide. Look at the icons in the far right to see which ones are hidden and which ones are visible.

You can then click on the little circle/crossed out circle to select if you want it hidden or not.

If you “Feature” a story, it will take the full width of your timeline, so as to draw attention to that item. Think of it like “this one is important”.


Firefox , Flash player 11.3 & protected mode (Issues)



Recently (June 6, 2012) Adobe introduced its new Flash player version 11.3 which supports protected mode for advance protection and allow flash plugin to run outside browser process and create separate sand-boxed version of flash plugin with low integrity process that will surely increase protection from bugs/flaws in Flash players discovered in the recent past. But now Flash plugin is directly accessing Internet instead of asking its parent process, like in the past, Firefox/IE or other browsers were responsible for communicating with the internet, but this new upgraded version of plugin needs direct internet communication (which is bad in my opinion, as now we needs to track its outgoing/incoming connection separately, no matter it is running with low/little access of system resources) Read the rest of this entry »

Firefox 13 released

No Comments »


Firefox 13 released and a bit earlier then expected, Firefox 13 is an important release with a handful of much-needed features that are long overdue.

First of all, Firefox 13 debuts “New Tab” Page — a grid of your favorite and most-visited websites. If you’ve used Opera, Chrome, or indeed Internet Explorer, you will feel right at home with the Firefox 13 New Tab Page.

Second new addition is new “Home Page”

And third major change in Firefox 13, is SPDY — Google’s faster, newer, optimized version of HTTP; the contemporary/competitor of Microsoft’s HTTP S&M– is on by default, and will be used by any sites that support it (mostly Google-owned sites such as YouTube, Gmail, and so on, for now). SPDY can speed up page load times by up to 50%, so this should help battle the perception that Chrome is faster than Firefox

Finally, there’s a bunch of small, like : Restored tabs (when the browser starts) will not load their contents until you click them; Smooth scrolling is now on by default; the developer tools (Page Inspector, Style Inspector, etc.) have been upgraded; and of course there’s further support for various HTML5 and CSS3 tags and properties.

So Download new Firefox 13 from here


Mozilla has just released a new version of Firefox stable, bringing the version of the browser to 13.0.1 for all supported operating systems. The release notes list both the changes that Mozilla made in Firefox 13 and the three bug fixes in the Firefox 13.0.1 release, which had been released two weeks earlier.

As discussed in previous article, Flash upgrade has caused serious crash and freezing issues for some users, which the new version unfortunately does not address completely.
