Disable Firefox’s AwesomeBar

Iceweasel and Scalix
January 26th, 2007 :: Permalink

The webmail frontend of Scalix only supports certain browser types which it checks using the User Agent string supplied by the client. Due to debians move to iceweasel this fails.

With the help of a plugin called User Agent Switcher you can use these settings to make things work.

Firefox 2 and tabs
December 4th, 2006 :: Permalink

And again an upgrade changed the UI. Each tab has its own close button, the one on the far right, closing the active tab is gone. If you like me liked the old behaviour better go to about:config and change browser.tabs.closeButtons to 3.

For more helpfull hints go to lifehacker.com

Update: It seems like there will be more options I’ll tweak, for example set network.dns.disableIPv6 to false, network.protocol-handler.external.mailto to true and network.protocol-handler.app.mailto to icedove
