Firefox 2 Config Tweaks
Firefox 2 was released during the Raya holidays and I managed to installed it only yesterday. I didn’t notice any obvious speed improvement in the office though but I trust the developers when they say it is faster.
One of the new features of FF2 is the individual close button on each tab and I felt the inconvenience straight away when I closed one of my tabs after I accidentally clicked on the button.
On the previous version, I used the middle-mouse button to close the tabs.
Luckily, Lifehacker highlighted this in one of its tips. We can change this behaviour and revert to 1.5’s behaviour (for those who don’t want this feature that is).
Just do this,
- On your FF 2 tab, type about:config.
- Locate the lines browser.tabs.closeButtons
- Right-click on it and select Modify
- Enter 1 (Close buttons on each tab), 2 (no close buttons at all) or 3 (close buttons at the far right)
That’s why Firefox says itself as “fully customizable to your online life”.
