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

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

Some time ago I created a 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.

Thunderbird: Sort / Rearrange accounts and define a startup folder using the Folderpane Tools Extension

Submitted by fabio on Sun, 2007-05-27 17:17.

I use Thunderbird as my email client. I'm very satisfied with it: I spend a considerable amount of time writing/reading emails and Thunderbird has always been a wonderful tool for this.

Two features I always missed from Thunderbird were the ability to sort the different accounts on my profile to my taste and defining a default start up folder.

I just created and submitted to mycroft, Mozilla/Firefox search engines plugins archive, a plugin to search for Drupal 5.x apis at

Unfortunately, while I was submitting the plugin, I forgot to change one value which let the plugin search into 4.7 documentation instead of 5.x.

Mycroft does not have an editing feature then I was not able to correct the problem.

Then I had to submit the plugin again which now works.
