Load new tab at the end of the tab bar in Firefox

The recent update of Firefox 3.6.2 changed the place where it loads any new tab you would open.

Previous versions were loading new tabs at the end of the tab bar.

This update loads new tabs next to the tab you are in and this creates massive confusion since people have started to lost new tabs because there were expecting them to be at the right end of the tab bar.

To change this as it was before, do as follows:

– Open a new Tab in Firefox and in the location type “about:config” and hit enter
– If you get a warning message, just confirm that you want to access that page
– Once the “configuration” tab is loaded, in filter copy and paste this “browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent”
– It will filter all the settings and will show you only the one we need
– Verify the setting is Value= True, double click and it should change to Value=False

You’re done, now Firefox will open any new tab at the right end of the tab bar

Comments welcome!

HOW-TO delete all Delicious.com Bookmarks quickly

Delicious LogoShame on me when I have installed the Delicious.com Firefox Plugin!

It imported around 800 Bookmarks and fortunately it did not set them as Public, they were all Private but I did not want to use Delicious for my private Bookmarks!

So I was looking for a quick way to get tip of them all and then import only the ones I wanted to.

Googling “delete delicious bookmarks” resulted in several pages teaching some “hacking” ways to achieve such thing: exporting them into MySQL, then emptying the database and exporting them..and other odd things.

Maybe Delicious itself has made this thing much easier but I have done this:

– Login on Delicious.com with your account

– Click on the down arrow next to Bookmarks and select My Bookmarks and you will land to some URL just like http://delicious.com/username where “username” is your account name

– Go at the end lower right of the list where it says “Showing 10 Bookmarks per page” and change it to 100 Bookmarks, the page will refresh showing 100 from your bookmarks

– Click on Bulk Edit on the upper right of the page and the blue padlock next to each bookmark will disappear. An empty box will appear to replace the padlock, click on Select All and in one click you will select those 100 bookmarks

– Click Delete, then OK to confirm and then Yes to confirm again the action. You have just deleted 100 bookmarks in 3 clicks

– Repeat the action for all of your bookmarks. As said I had 800 bookmarks there and in a couple of minutes I got rip of them all out of Delicious

– At the end of the process you will see again the You have no bookmarks … yet!

Another mission completed!

Comment out your experience with this method!

The URL showing up when you change the number of bookmarks to show is something like:

http://delicious.com/username?setcount=100

I have tried to alter the value of the get parameter “setcount” for example, for 800 bookmarks:

http://delicious.com/username?setcount=800

But it did not work, it seems the higher number of shown bookmarks is 100

Running 2 Firefox sessions at the same time

You might want to run 2 or more Firefox under Windows at the same time, but with different sessions, not just 2 Firefox windows.

Here is how:

– close any Firefox session and make sure it is not running in the backgroun with Task Manager
– Start > Run > firefox -P
(this should start Firefox ProfileManager)
– create a new profile name and location, decide the default profile or enable the ProfileManager dialog window to appear each time you launch Firefox
– create as many shortcuts as many profile you have created this way:
– Shortcut Name: Firefox Profile1, Firefox Profile2 etc
– Target: “C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe” -P Profile1 -no-remote and
“C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe” -P Profile2 -no-remote

(Replace the location with yours and Profile1 with the one you have created)

Now you will be able to launch 2 different Firefox sessions, either with a different profile.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

Creating Virtual Host pointing to an IP on GoDaddy

Purpose: have a Virtual Host, vhost, subdomain, vanity host…pointing to a unique IP address, for example if you don’t have hosting service at GoDaddy.

There are a lot of documents explaining this but there have created a lot of confusion up here so I would like to clear things up.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

If you want to accomplish what follows, read on.

Issue:
– GoDaddy as Domain Registrar, so you will use GoDaddy Domain Manager
– Hosting your sites somewhere, where the web server ip is 111.111.111.111
for example because you own a dedicated server or you have a fixed IP address
at home and you want to host your sites at your place
– Hosting subdomains, virtual hosts, vhosts etc on other IP addresses
for example:

http://www.mydomain.com > 101.101.101.1
http://dev.mydomain.com > 201.201.201.2
http://test.mydomain.com > 103.103.103.3

– Log yourself on GoDaddy Domain Manager and click on the domain you to work on
– Click on Total DNS Control
– Note that you have an A(Host) Record called “@” and pointing to a GoDaddy IP Address, then you have a CNAME Record called “@” and pointing to your virtual host “www”
– Click to edit the A(Host) “@” record and change the existing IP with the one you want for
http://www.mydomain.com, for example 101.101.101.1
– A dialog will appear to confirm the change has been recorded
– Click ADD NEW A RECORD button and type only “dev” for dev.mydomain.com, the enter the IP Address, for example 201.201.201.2 and confirm
– A dialog will appear to confir the change has been recorded
– Repeat this for each subdomain or virtual host you may want to add and then wait for 24-48 hours for the DNS to propagate

You may want to keep open a terminal window or a DOS Prompt window and

ping dev.mydomain.com

from time to time to see when you DNS has been updated. When it starts to reply, you can open your browser and point it to http://dev.mydomain.com and it will open the WebServer Default page on 201.201.201.2

Just create the new domain “dev.mydomain.com” on your server and the magic will happen

Enjoy

Asus EEEPC 1000H Bios Update

Internet rumors go around Windows 7 on EEEPc so we have done that and one task is to update the bios with the 2204 version 26/10/2009.

We have used a USB SD Card Reader and a 512Megabyte MMC Card with its SD adapter but in general every old SD (FAT16) should be ok

Here are the steps:

1) Download the bios from EEEPc Asus Site and unzip it. The file will look like 1000H-ASUS-2204.ROM but you have to rename it to 1000H.rom to be able to use it

2) Insert your USB Pen Drive or USB Card Reader and format it as FAT16 then copy the file 1000H.rom onto it

3) Make sure your 1000H is powered off, no USB Device is plugged, it is running on power supply and the battery is fully charged. Insert the USB Pen Drive or USB Card Reader with the bios on it and boot the machine.

4) During POST press ALT+F2 and the Bios Update Utility will start looking for USB Device, it will find yours and will start reading the 1000H.rom file, once done it will delete the current bios and then will replace it with the new one. At the end the procedure will ask you to power the machine off, remove the USB and restart it

5) When you boot it the new bios configuration utility will show up for you to configure some stuff just like boot order priority etc, just do what you need and save it

6) Congratulations! You now have your bios updated and you may proceed to install Windows 7 Ultimate
