    Arrow Hidden Firefox Interfaces

    Hidden Firefox Interfaces
    What is not accessible through the menu

    [ Here Some More .... Continuation of Last FF Post ]

    Sometimes, software applications look like a computer game because they hide menus, options or features. The way computer games have secrets or cheats, the same way some applications encapsulate hidden resources that in a normal procedure are not revealed for the user. It's like having a car and not knowing what's under the hood. Did you know that your web browser has something to hide from you? I bet you didn't.

    Mozilla Firefox is a dangerous competitor for the almost omnipresent Internet Explorer. Constantly improved over the last years, it has become a reliable alternative for the Microsoft's product. And more than that: there are so many computer users that consider it safer and faster. Well, the present article does not intend to draw a comparison between the two internet browsers. The goal of it is to show you that your favorite browser (in case Firefox is your favorite) has something to hide.

    Firefox keeps some secrete configuration interfaces that are not accessible through the menu. To get to these configuration interfaces you need to type in the address bar: "about:" followed by a parameter. Here are the hidden interfaces along with their "pass keys":

    About:

    Typing it simple, followed by no parameter, it will display the About information which is accessible from the
    menu too. Therefore, we cannot say this is a hidden feature.

    About:buildconfig

    This will show you information about the Mozilla Build options.

    about:cache

    It will display cache statistics regarding the disk cache and the memory cache device. It also lets you know which is the cache directory and provides a list with cache entries. Normally, Firefox does not permit you to view cached webpages. Hence, this option is great.

    About:config

    This is maybe the most powerful and more complex hidden option available in Firefox. You should work carefully with these settings if you want your browser to act normally later.

    About: Plugins

    As you may have guessed, this option will display detailed information about all the plugins installed for Mozilla Firefox.

    About:credits

    By typing this command, you will get the whole list of those who struggled to bring you this amazing browser. I know this is not vital or important regarding the browser functionality, but it is good and fair to know who worked for your comfort. There are a lot of names sorted by the name initial.

    About:Mozilla

    Reveals the Book of Mozilla. The Book of Mozilla is a well-known computer Easter egg that was present in Netscape too. There is no real book entitled The Book of Mozilla. However, apparent quotations hidden in Netscape and Mozilla give this impression by revealing passages similar to the Book of Revelation of the Bible.
    The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only moment you reject all help are you free.

    Arrow Give Firefox an Adrenalin Shot with Preloader

    Give Firefox an Adrenalin Shot with Preloader

    Firefox may be my browser of choice but there are times when it is REALLY slow , so slow in fact that I am sorely tempted to defect to Opera or even gasp Safari!

    It’s sometimes even worse when you’re opening up Firefox. You click on that little Fox icon and it sits there thinking “hmmm….he wants me to start up…will I or won’t I? Let’s think about it for a few minutes ”. Meanwhile you’re sitting there gnashing your teeth and flirting with the idea of walking on the wild side with Flock.

    But you don’t have to wail and despair any more! During a little stroll through SourceForge, I found an interesting program called Firefox Preloader which was short on technical details but long on prospects. It claims to be able to “improve Firefox’s start-up time”.

    Now at this point, you’re probably very cynical about anything that claims to be able to speed up Firefox. After all, a quick Google search on “optimizing Firefox” or “speed up Firefox” brings back countless hits (some of them totally useless) and often, messing around with the “about:config” section of Firefox can harm the browser more than it can help it. So I didn’t immediately fall head over heels in love with Firefox Preloader. I too had my healthy dose of scepticism. However, overwhelming curiosity won the day and I decided to see if it really did work.

    From the little I was able to find out, Preloader pre-loads various parts of your Firefox browser into the memory (presumably the most important parts ) so that when you want it to start, it is able to open much faster than normal. In fact when I clicked on the Fox logo to start the browser, it shot open like a politician being caught in a brothel with his pants down . The tabs fired open one by one as if they had drank five cups of coffee each. Firefox is now so fast it’s unnerving me.

    If you feel the need, you can “unload” what Preloader has loaded into memory and tell it to “reload” Firefox (see the menu to the left). You can access this menu by a small Firefox icon which appears in your system tray. You can also tell Preloader to start up when Windows starts and you can also tell it where to find Firefox in your computer by specifying the path in your PC.

    You’re probably wondering how much CPU this program uses up. Well I can tell you - virtually nothing. In fact it barely registers at all. It rarely goes above 4000k and 0% CPU.

    The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only moment you reject all help are you free.

    Arrow How to change drive letter assignments in Windows XP

    How to change drive letter assignments in Windows XP

    This post describes how to assign, to change, or to remove drive letters on a drive, a partition, or a volume by using the Disk Management snap-in in Microsoft Windows XP.

    The Disk Management snap-in is an administrative tool for managing hard disks and the volumes or partitions that they contain. Use the Disk Management snap-in when you want to add, to change, or to remove drive letters on drives, on partitions, or on volumes on your computer's hard disks, CD-ROM drives, and other removable media devices.

    Your computer can use up to 26 drive letters, from A through Z. Use drive letters C through Z for hard disk drives. Drive letters A and B are reserved for floppy disk drives. However, if your computer does not have a floppy disk drive, you can assign these letters to removable drives.

    Before you modify drive-letter assignments, note the following items:
    • • Changing the drive letter of the system volume or the boot volume is not a built-in feature of the Disk Management snap-in.
    • • Many MS-DOS-based and Microsoft Windows-based programs refer to specific drive letters for environmental or other variables. If you modify the drive letter, these programs may not function correctly.



    How to assign a drive letter

    To assign a drive letter to a drive, a partition, or a volume, follow these steps:
    1. Log on as Administrator or as a member of the Administrators group.
    2. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Performance and Maintenance.

    [ OR You can Right Click on My Computer Icon and Choose Manage ]

    Note : If you do not see Performance and Maintenance, go to step 3. Performance and Maintenance appears in Control Panel only if you use Category view. If you use Classic view, Performance and Maintenance does not appear.

    3. Click Administrative Tools, double-click Computer Management, and then click Disk Management in the left pane.
    4. Right-click the drive, the partition, the logical drive, or the volume that you want to assign a drive letter to, and then click Change Drive Letter and Paths.
    5. Click Add.
    6. Click Assign the following drive letter if it is not already selected, and then either accept the default drive letter or click the drive letter that you want to use.
    7. Click OK.
    The drive letter is assigned to the drive, to the partition, or to the volume that you specified, and then that drive letter appears in the appropriate drive, partition, or volume in the Disk Management tool.

    How to change a drive letter

    To change an existing drive letter on a drive, on a partition, or on a volume, follow these steps:
    1. Log on as Administrator or as a member of the Administrators group.
    2. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Performance and Maintenance.
    3. Click Administrative Tools, double-click Computer Management, and then click Disk Management in the left pane.
    4. Right-click the drive, the partition, the logical drive, or the volume that you want to assign a drive letter to, and then click Change Drive Letter and Paths.
    5. Click Change.
    6. Click Assign the following drive letter if it is not already selected, click the drive letter that you want to use, and then click OK.
    7. Click Yes when you are prompted to confirm the drive letter change.
    The drive letter of the drive, the partition, or the volume that you specified is changed, and the new drive letter appears in the appropriate drive, partition, or volume in the Disk Management tool.

    How to remove a drive letter

    To remove an existing drive letter on a drive, on a partition, or on a volume, follow these steps:
    1. Log on as Administrator or as a member of the Administrators group.
    2. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Performance and Maintenance.
    3. Click Administrative Tools, double-click Computer Management, and then click Disk Management in the left pane.
    4. Right-click the drive, the partition, the logical drive, or the volume that you want to assign a drive letter to, and then click Change Drive Letter and Paths.
    5. Click Remove.
    6. Click Yes when you are prompted to confirm the removal.
    The drive letter is removed from the drive, from the partition, or from the volume that you specified.

    Troubleshooting

    • When you try to change an existing drive letter, you receive the following error message:

    The volume volume_label drive_letter is currently in use.
    If you continue, the new drive letter will be assigned; but you can still use the old drive letter to access the volume until you restart your computer. The old drive letter will not be available for assignment until you restart.

    Warning: Changing the drive letter of a volume could cause programs to no longer run.
    This error message may appear if there are files that are in use on the drive, on the partition, or on the volume. These files may be in use by you or by other people on the network. To resolve this issue, use one of the following methods:
    • Click No when you receive the error message. Quit all the programs that are using the files on the volume, and then change the drive letter. To do this, right-click the volume, click Change Drive Letter and Paths, and then click Change.
    • Click Yes to continue with the drive letter change.

    • When you try to remove an existing drive letter, you receive the following error message:

    The volume volume_label drive_letter is currently in use.
    If you continue, the drive letter will be freed; however, it will still be available for use until you restart your computer.

    Warning: Changing the drive letter of a volume could cause programs to no longer run.
    This error message may appear if there are files that are in use on the drive, the partition, or the volume. These files may be in use by you or by other people on the network. To resolve this issue, use one of the following methods:
    • Click No when you receive the error message. Quit all the programs that are using the files on the volume, and then remove the drive letter. To do this, right-click the volume, click Change Drive Letter and Paths, and then click Remove.
    • Click Yes to remove the drive letter the next time that you start your computer.
    The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only moment you reject all help are you free.

    Manually manage computer memory

    When your computer's physically installed random-access memory (RAM) is running low, Windows adds available memory by using a paging file, generally known as virtual memory, on the hard disk to simulate physical RAM. By default, the virtual memory paging file that is created during installation is 1.5 times the physical RAM on your computer. Therefore, a computer that has 1GB of installed RAM will have 1.5GB of virtual memory.

    You can manually change the size of the paging file to make it larger or smaller. You can also optimize virtual memory use by dividing the file space between multiple drives and by removing allocated space from slow or heavily accessed drives. To optimize your virtual memory space, divide it among as many physical hard drives as possible. When you select drives, follow these guidelines:

    Try to avoid having a paging file on the same drive as the system files, usually drive C.
    Avoid putting a paging file on a fault-tolerant drive such as a mirrored volume or a RAID-5 volume. Paging files do not require fault tolerance, and some fault-tolerant computers experience slow data writes because they write data to multiple locations.
    Do not put multiple paging files on different partitions on the same physical disk drive.

    How to manually change the size of the virtual memory paging file

    You must be logged on as an administrator or as a member of the administrator’s group to complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings may prevent you from completing this procedure.

    To manually change the size of virtual memory, follow these steps:
    1.Click Start, click Run, type sysdm.cpl in the Open box, and then press ENTER.
    2.Click the Advanced tab, and then under PerformanceSettings. click
    3.Click the Advanced tab, and then under Virtual memoryChange. click
    4.
    Under Drive [Volume Label], click the drive that contains the paging file that you want to change.
    5.
    Under Paging file size for selected drive, click Custom size, type a new paging file size in megabytes (MB) in the Initial size (MB) or Maximum size (MB) box, and then click Set.
    6.Click OK to close the dialog box and apply changes.
    Note
    After you change the size of the paging file, you may be prompted to restart Windows. If you are prompted to restart, the changes will not take effect until Windows is restarted.

    Notes

    To have Windows select the best paging file size, click System managed size. The recommended minimum size is the same as 1.5 times the RAM on your computer, and 3 times that figure for the maximum size. For example, if you have 256 MB of RAM, the minimum size is 384 MB, and the maximum size is 1152 MB.
    For best performance, do not set the initial size to less than the minimum recommended size under Total paging file size for all drives. The recommended size is the same as 1.5 times the RAM on your computer. It is good practice to leave the paging file at its recommended size as performance can decrease if a paging file is too large. However, you may increase its size if you frequently use programs that use lots of memory, such as graphics programs or games.
    MS strongly recommend that you do not disable or delete the paging file because this can lessen the computer's performance. However, if you decide to delete a paging file, set both the initial size and the maximum size to zero, or click No paging file. How to manually optimize the memory usage

    You can optimize your computer's memory usage to reflect your specific needs. If your computer is used as a workstation instead of as a server, you can increase performance by devoting more memory to your programs. Your programs will work faster and the system cache size will remain the default size that was included with Windows XP. Or, you can set aside more computer memory for a larger system cache if your computer is used primarily as a server, or if you use programs that require a large system cache.
    1.
    Click Start, click Run, type sysdm.cpl in the Open box, and then press ENTER.
    2.
    Click the Advanced tab, and then under PerformanceSettings. click
    3.
    Click the Advanced tab, and then under Memory usage use one of the following methods:
    Click Programs if you use your computer primarily as a workstation instead of as a server. This option allocates more memory to your programs.
    Click System cache if your computer is used primarily as a server or if you use programs that use a large system cache.
    4.Click OK to save preferences and close the dialog box.
