What I Learned about Firebug

Tonight I attended a meetup with the Austin WordPress group on how to use Firebug presented by Nick Batik. I have used Firebug for ages, but no one ever taught me how to use it, so I’ve just fumbled around and pretty much stuck to finding out what CSS elements did what. Here’s what I learned tonight! When inspecting an element you can click on a color code and then  [ Read More ]

Delete individual autofill entries

Today I did some clean up of my data on my computer. I created some groups in LastPass and did some site title clean up. I also did some research on how to get rid of autofill entries that aren’t right or got added without me realizing. I found this handy article on Lifehacker on doing just this. For example, I visit TripIt a least once a week and one  [ Read More ]

KohaCon12: Offline Circulation

My colleague at ByWater, Kyle Hall, was up next talking about the Koha Offline Circulation Tool. Kyle wrote the first offline circulation tool in 2006 and within the last year rewrote the whole thing to make it work with latest releases of Koha. With 3.8 we also have another offline circulation tool to use – this one is a Firefox plugin. Kyle started with a demo of the desktop application.  [ Read More ]

It’s finally happened – at least when we’re talking about the most popular single version of a browser. You can see it all in the bar graph above: Firefox 3.5 has dethroned  [ Read More ]

Firefox Add-On Collections

I vaguely remember seeing mention of Firefox adding collections a while back, but I didn’t pay it much notice. Today I was doing my research on Firefox and saw what a collection really is! Firefox collections are lists of add-ons put together by Firefox users! I did a search for library to see what librarians were recommending as Firefox add-ons and found a bunch I hadn’t heard of before. What  [ Read More ]

Ads in Firefox

I always tell people that if they have Firefox (and they should) they need to install AdBlock Plus. Today I learned about Add-Art: Add-Art is a free FireFox add-on which replaces advertising on websites with curated art images. The art shows are updated every two weeks and feature contemporary artists and curators. Neat – but if I get to choose between removing ads or replacing them with other images –  [ Read More ]

Integrated Gmail Firefox Add-on

I read about this neat sounding add-on for Firefox on Lifehacker – but unfortunately it’s not ready for prime time. Allows you to make the Inbox Collapsible and loads your choice of Google Calendar, Reader, Notebook, Groups, etc… plus Custom URLs and Google Gadgets seamlessly into the gmail interface. Works w/Google Apps Accounts and GMail Themes. I installed the Integrated Gmail add-on, but every time I went to Gmail I  [ Read More ]

This sounds so awesome!! On my list of 14 extremely useful Firefox addons I included ScreenGrab for capturing web pages to PNG or JPG images. Today, I replaced it with Screen Grab to WordPress. As you probably guessed, it’s got the same core functionality with one major addition: the ability to send images directly to your WordPress-powered blog. Heading off to download it and give it a whirl. Technorati Tags:  [ Read More ]
