Firefox 4: Hide the Bookmarks Bar & Stop trimming URL previews

1. To automatically hide the firefox bookmarks bar when the toolbar is not in use, and have it show up when the mouse hovers over the Firefox toolbr, copy/paste the following code in your UserChrome.css file:

#PersonalToolbar { visibility: collapse !important; opacity: 0.1; -moz-transition: visibility 30s, opacity 30s ease !important; } #navigator-toolbox:hover #PersonalToolbar { visibility: visible !important; opacity: 9; -moz-transition: visibility !important; }

To adjust the time it has to pass before the toolbar gets hidden, change the two 30s values. Tip from Lifehacker.

2. To stop firefox 4 from trimming the URLs in the status bar, copy/paste the following code in your UserChrome.css file:

statuspanel { max-width: 100% !important; }

This tells firefox to allow the status panel to use length 100% of the status bar. You can adjust this number as you like. Tip from Lifehacker.

I love it. Firefox 4 is so damn fast. 2 quick observations:

1. The tabs were moved below the address bar, the ‘RSS Feed’ button was moved to the top of the Bookmarks menu, and the ‘Reload’ button was moved to the right end of the address bar. If you want these back right-click on a blank space on the menu bar or the tab bar (see how) and click ‘Tabs on Top’ to move the tabs below the address bar (see how), or select ‘Customize’ and drag the ‘Subscribe’ button to the address bar (see how), or select ‘Customize’ and move the ‘Reload’ button to the left of the address button (see how).

2. The Add-on toolbar isn’t on by default. To turn it on, right-click on a blank space on the menu bar or the tab bar again and click ‘Add-on bar’ or press the Control and slash buttons together (Ctrl+/) (see add-on bar).

So, get firefox 4 now!

Make New Tabs Open at Far Right in Firefox 3.6

Lifehacker:

The official Firefox 3.6 release changed where new tabs open from clicked links—to the right of the tab they launched from. Liked it better the old way? Here’s the quick fix.

The Mozilla Links blog points out a few about:config tweaks that Firefox 3.6 users might be intrigued in, especially if the new version handles things a bit differently than you’re used to, and you don’t want to spend time getting used to the new scheme. To set new tab behavior back to its old ways—opening in the right-most slot—enter about:config into your address bar, click that you’ll be careful, then enter browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent into the search bar. Set that value to “False,” and your new tabs will open where they used to.
