Full list of Mozilla Firefox Hacks for Browser and Addons


These are a few of my favourite hacks for Mozilla Firefox 3 all of these will be saved in the prefs.js file and can be altered either using the about:config method in the browser or by using a combination of the Edit my Config extension XPI and the Yaldex Software Free JavaScript Editor
always make sure that you create a BUP first before any changes.

browser.cache.disk.capacity » 150000
browser.cache.memory.capacity » 150000
This will set the maximum disk space and memory for the browser's cache to ~150Mb

browser.cache.offline.capacity » 20480
browser.cache.memory.enable » false
Forcing Firefox to disable the cache but also to keep it self-contained.
(this will make pages that you visit often to be slow and stay slow, though so be careful)

browser.download.manager.closeWhenDone » true
browser.search.openintab » true
So that the searches from the search bar go into a new tab instead of the current one.
browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground » true
This forces Firefox to open new links in the background so that it doesn't steal focus from the page I am still trying to read!
browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick » false
browser.tabs.tabMinWidthset » 0
Disables tab scrolling, otherwise you can set it to the minimum allowable width of a tab (in pixels) before tab scrolling comes in.
browser.urlbar.hideGoButton » true
To remove that Go button you never use anyway.
browser.urlbar.maxRichResults » 5
browser.urlbar.autoFill » true
This will enable auto-completion.

browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo » 1
The higher the number the higher the memory, so I set this to 1 because I still seem to close tabs accidentally, but usually only 1

browser.sessionhistory.max_total_viewers » 1
This determines how many web pages to store in the cache.
Setting to 0 saves about 4Mb of cache per page, but slows things down for back/forward operations.
content.notify.backoffcount » 5
plugin.expose_full_path » true
ui.submenuDelay » 0

content.max.tokenizing.time » 2250000
content.notify.interval » 750000
content.notify.ontimer » true
content.switch.threshold » 750000

zoom.maxPercent -> 400 for the ability to zoom closer
zoom.minPercent -> 10 will let you can zoom out further
browser.zoom.full -> false for Firefox 2-like text zooming only
browser.zoom.siteSpecific -> false Removes site-specific zoom settings
toolkit.zoomManager.zoomValues -> You can change zoom levels here


network.http.pipelining » true
network.http.proxy.pipelining » true
Allows for the use of proxy HTTP/1.1 pipelining.
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests » 8 (max 30)
Firefox can make more simultaneous connections for faster downloading
network.prefetch-next » false
network.http.max-connections » 48
network.http.max-connections-per-server » 16
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy » 8
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server » 8
nglayout.initialpaint.delay » 0
Firefox starts to render a page immediately (defaults to 250ms).

layout.word_select.eat_space_to_next_word » false
So that when you double-click on a word to select it, Firefox does not select the space to the right of that
word

extensions.checkCompatibility -> false
extensions.checkCompatibility.3.6 -> false
local_install.extensions.checkCompatibility -> false
extensions.checkUpdateSecurity -> false


extensions.getAddons.showPane -> false Removes add-ons search
browser.cache.offline.capacity -> 20480 Increase offline cache

Is it true that marlboro is marketing canabis cigarettes?


No. To do that, they would have to have manufacturing plants in the states where cannabis is legal. And even then, they wold have to have a legal source of supply. There is no legal source available that could meet production demand as of this time. Additionally, since the Federal government still doesn't recognize cannabis as legal, tobacco companies won't touch the stuff for legal and tax reasons. There is no profitability in the market as of yet for them. But I'm sure they have researched the feasibility and are perched to leap the second that legal barriers are removed and profitability is assured.

Were monopoly games used in WWII to hide escape maps?


Printing on paper was well known, but printing on cloth had special problems. The ink would run on the cloth, or the cloth would crease during the preparation or printing process, or the ink would smear. However, many board game companies were used to printing on linen and other cloth materials, which would then be glued to cardboard portfolios for their game sets. So the government turned to them for help.
The cloth maps were sometimes hidden in special editions of the Monopoly board game sets sent to the prisoners of war camps. The marked game sets also included foreign currency (French and German, for example), compasses and other items needed for escaping Allied prisoners of war. "To develop that kit, MI9, the British secret service unit responsible for escape and evasion, conspired with John Waddington Limited, the U.K. manufacturer of Monopoly. "It was ingenious," Philip Orbanes, author of several books on Monopoly, told Heussner. "The Monopoly box was big enough to not only hold the game but hide everything else they needed to get to POWs."[7]
200px-colditz_castle1.jpg Oflag IV-C, more commonly known as Colditz Castle Hutton was also responsible for the delivery of escape kits to POWs. The Geneva Convention allowed prisoners to receive parcels from families and relief organisations. These were dispatched through a number of fictitious charitable organisations, created to send parcels of games, warm clothing and other small comforts to the prisoners. One of the major problems of captivity was boredom, and games and entertainments were permitted, as the guards recognised that if the prisoners were allowed some diversions, they would be less troublesome. Games manufacturer Waddingtons helped by supplying editions of its Monopoly board game, and other games. Although to date, no examples of any such monopoly boards have surfaced, it is therefore doubtful if the operation to use monopoly as part of escaping tool for POW escapees ever took place. No samples were kept for record purposes in either Waddington or the War office archives and the pictures of such boards currently available are all modern reproductions.[8] Snakes and ladders, table tennis, chess sets and playing cards were used to smuggle in escape kits with hidden maps and other equipment.[9]
Escape maps were also printed on playing cards distributed to Prisoners of War. Only two decks are known to survive from this period, and one is owned by the International Spy Museum in Washington, DC. "During World War II, the United States Playing Card Company joined forces with American and British intelligence agencies to create a very special deck of cards. This deck was specifically created to help Allied prisoners of war escape from German POW camps. This deck of cards became known as the "map deck." It was made by hiding maps of top-secret escape routes between the two paper layers that make up all modern playing cards. These decks, when soaked in water, could be peeled apart to reveal hidden maps that allowed escaping prisoners to find their way to safety. Due to the nature of the war and the prosecution of war crimes thereafter, the map decks remained a closely guarded secret for many years after the war ended. The secrecy surrounding them was so high, that no one really knows how many were produced or how many have survived."[10]
Red Cross parcels were not used because of concerns the Germans would stop these reaching the prisoners if they discovered items hidden in them. The escape kits are credited with helping 316 escape attempts from Colditz Castle, which saw 32 men make it back home.

What is tbe difference between socialism and communism?


Socialism is government programs for the well being of the general public, society, so the government will give hand outs expecting nothing in return. The system is dedicated to the society.

Communism is when the government sets achievable goals, goals have to be achieved by the general public under the supervision of the government then any benefits from the labor/production/etc. will be shared among the community (ideally).

Change true false to yes no in SQL Query


This depends on the flavor of SQL you're using. If your column for true/false is boolean then the following would be one method:

SELECT CASE [Column] WHEN true THEN 'Yes' ELSE 'No' END

for something like MS Access:

=IIF(Column = True, "Yes", "No")
