"Firefox 2 theme for Firefox 3.x" version 0.9.4 out

Submitted by fabio on Tue, 2009-07-14 18:27.

After some days of tests by me and some friend who helped out I just submitted version 0.9.4 of the Firefox 2 theme for Firefox 3.x.

The version is waiting review by the editors at addons.mozilla.org so it's still not public. It should became available in some days. Once it became public it will be pushed to current users through firefox Addons automatic update.

Updated "Firefox 2 theme for Firefox 3" to Firefox 3.5 - version 0.9.4 beta out

Submitted by fabio on Sun, 2009-07-12 15:04.

The default Firefox 3/3.5 theme for Linux is, in my modest opinion, really ugly.

As soon as they rolled it out for Firefox 3 I reverted to the old Firefox 2 theme using an add on theme called Firefox 2 theme for Firefox. I used it for some months and I was really satisfied with it.

Unfortunately the theme seems abandoned, given the message displayed on its project page.

Debug Redirects and HTTP Headers in Firefox with Live HTTP Headers

Submitted by fabio on Wed, 2008-11-26 21:19.

If you are a web developer, sooner or later, you will have to play (or fight) with HTTP Headers handling.

HTTP Headers, even if hidden in the server-browsers interactions, are a fundamental element of the web.

Also a strong usage of HTTP Headers is done in SEO - Serach engine optimization, where they are used to keep Search Engines Caches updated.

A firefox search plugin for Drupal 6 apis at api.drupal.org

Submitted by fabio on Wed, 2008-06-04 13:41.

Some time ago I created a api.drupal.org firefox search plugin for Drupal 5.x and submitted it to the Mycroft Project for indexing.

Well, I've been requested to do the same for Drupal 6 Apis.

So.. I did it. There is now a Drupal 6 Apis search plugin available at Mycroft.

You can get it from the list of search plugins I created.

UPDATE: The following guide, originally written for Firefox 2, has been used successfully on Firefox 3, 3.5, 3.6, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12. Users of Firefox Portable edition (same versions) also have been successful using this guide.

The Windows computers available at my University permits login only by autenticated users (students) who don't have Administrator access and permissions.

Installing software on those PC is then not possible.
