    I never noticed until I just messed up and did it, but if I just type the name of a movie into the URL line on Firefox, it goes right to the IMDB page for that movie.... This makes my life THAT much easier.... I can live happy now :haha:

    And I just found out you can rearrange the tabs by drag and dropping them. I'm sure there's an endless amount of little tricks waiting to be discovered.

    Try typing "14 bolt bible" and see what you get. Firefox is cool like that, you can type almost anything and it will find a webpage, but sometimes not the one you're looking for.

    Firefox is awesome in that it is open source. Meaning, if you don't like something about it, you can change it.

    Try typing these into the address bar:

    about:mozilla

    about:config

    In about:config you can edit and change any aspect of the program, though you have to be kinda nerdy to do it right.:wink1:

    Al ::.:.:.:...:...

    config files and me = dangerous. When i still played Quake III Arena, I'd spend hours just tweaking the config file manually to make it look good but perform as fast as I could get it.

    ok I found a new one. If you have a scroller on your mouse or keyboard--hold ctrl and move the scroller. this will change your font size within the browser. it's only temporary close and open it again and it's back to normal
