What Will You Learn?
Firefox Secrets will show you how to gain productivity by tweaking your browser to better suit the way you browse the Web. Firefox provides many ways to accomplish this - themes alter the appearance and position of on-screen elements, extensions modify or extend the browser's behaviour, and hidden and undocumented preferences allow you to control everything from how wide the 'search' box is to what happens which you hold down "Shift" and roll your mouse wheel!
You'll learn how to:
- Turbo-charge your browser by enabling Firefox's undocumented HTTP pipelining.
- Save time by having Firefox open all of your favorite Websites in tabs at start-up.
- Subscribe to XML feeds and read them from within your browser.
- Maintain your privacy on the Web by managing cookies.
- Never forget a password again, using the Password Manager.
- Master the secrets of the advanced about:config screen.
- Perform specialized Web searches from the location bar with smart keywords, and add your own customized searches.
If you are an experienced Web user or a Web developer, Firefox provides you with productivity tools to speed up Web page creation and debugging.
Web developers will learn to:
- Inspect and modify any element on a Web page, live in the browser, using the DOM Inspector.
- Use the Page Info interface to view comprehensive diagnostic information about a Web page.
