  • On the Tenth Anniversary of Firefox, New Developer Edition Unleashed

    I've been using Firefox for a long, long time…ever since the early betas, and jumped on board as soon as 1.0 was released exactly 10 years ago. As a professional web developer, it goes without saying that I have to use quite the plethora of different browsers to get my job done (love 'em or hate 'em): Internet Explorer Firefox Google Chrome Safari For a while, Opera Numerous mobile browsers For a while, Firefox was the de facto for developers as the developer tools far surpassed...
  • Why Are Modern Browsers Such Memory Hogs? A Short Primer on Processes, DLL's, and Threads

    I normally don't like to participate in the so called "browser wars" and that is not the intention of this post. But, I feel that the title poses a legitimate question: What is going on with modern browsers sucking down memory like tequila shots these days? As a web developer, I have a slew of browsers installed on my machines for testing: Internet Explorer (unfortunately): Necessary evil, plus it's the only browser that supports Windows Integrated Authentication, which is mandatory...
  • Unable To Open URLs After Upgrading Windows XP x64 To Service Pack 2

    I recently upgraded my Windows XP x64 installation to Windows 2003 Service Pack 2 (for those not in the know, SP2 for Windows 2003 also applies to XP x64 since they are the same code base) only to run into an issue where clicking on any urls/hyperlinks from desktop applications (Outlook, Word, etc) generated the following error: "General Failure. The URL was (hyperlink name)." I use Firefox as my default browser, and it was definitely related to SP2 as this problem didn't show up until after the...
  • Upgraded To Firefox 2.0 -- Minimal Effort Required

    I attempted to upgrade to Firefox 2.0 when it first came out a couple of weeks ago, however at that time the majority of the extensions I use were incompatible, and no updates were available. Fast forward to now, and the majority of my extensions do indeed play nice with 2.0...ones that did not have either been integrated into 2.0, or were worth just getting rid of entirely. I won't list my catalog of "must have" extensions however I did stumble across a new one that I absolutely love so far though...
  • I'm Either The Last One To The Party...

    Or no one has thought about this yet: The more I've pondered this piece of news the more convinced I am that it's a fake request. Too many things just don't add up (and at the risk of making a fool out of myself I will not list them here...I have listed them on another popular news site and if it does indeed turn out to be bogus I will link back along with the obligatory "told ya so"). I hope it's not, but I think someone has pulled a fast one on us. Guess we'll see what happens.
  • Microsoft Invites Firefox Development Team To Redmond

    Via Ars Technica ( full post here ): Microsoft wants to help aid in the development of Firefox. It sounds pretty scary, doesn't it? If you're still here, let me tell you that it's not as bad as it seems. Sam Ramjii, Director of Microsoft's Open Source Software Lab, has extended an invitation to the Firefox and Thunderbird developers asking them if they'd like to visit the company's open source research center. Microsoft's hopes are that, in a four-day span, the company can provide the open source...

  • Performancing for Firefox Extension

    The good folks over at Performancing have released what looks to be a very promising Firefox extension: Performancing for Firefox . I haven’t been able to get much functionality out of it yet using the MetaWeblog API (which is what Community Server uses) account settings, but apparently it’s working for other account types. Regardless, it looks very promising, so here’s hoping they get the MetaWeblog stuff cleaned up. I dare say it could even replace my beloved BlogJet if all the...
  • Upgraded to Firefox 1.5 -- So Far So Good

    But didn’t I just say that I was going to hold off for a bit ? That was the intention, but late last night (bad case of insomnia), Firefox started behaving very strange…namely tabs weren’t getting selected correctly (it was related to an update of this extension , read the comments), and even more strange was that attempting to pull up the extensions dialog wasn’t working (just pegged my machine at 100% and gave me a blank stare). How are you supposed to uninstall an extension...
  • Must Have Firefox Extensions

    Sara’s post inspired me to hammer out a post of my favorite Firefox extensions: Tabbrowser Preferences . Adds lots of capabilities to Firefoxes tabbed browsing system. ForecastFox . You can never have enough weather reports, right? Mouse Gestures . This is my absolute favorite Firefox extension; it’s become second nature (to the point where I do gestures in other applications and wonder why they aren’t working…whoops!); I can’t imagine browsing without this extension. Getting used to it takes some...
