The Best About:Config Tweaks That Make Firefox Better

The Best About:Config Tweaks That Make Firefox Better | Le Top des Applications Web et Logiciels Gratuits | Scoop.it

Firefox doesn't get enough love these days, but it's still the most customizable browser around thanks the numerous options in about:config. Here are 10 under-the-hood Firefox tweaks you should try out.

 

If you aren't familiar with about:config, it's simple: just type about:config into Firefox's address bar and you'll be greeted with hundreds of hidden settings tweaks that change how Firefox works. In some cases, these are quirky or unfinished features, but in other cases, they just change certain parameters that Firefox uses by default. Double-click on any item to change it, but be careful—some options may act weird, slow down Firefox, or break it altogether. Check out Mozilla's Knowledge Base entry for more information.

 

We've shared a number of about:config tips over the years, but it's been awhile, so we thought we'd revisit some of our favorites—along with some new ones we haven't seen before.
