Firefox 3.5 – making firefuck start in fullscreen mode

I want firefox to start in fullscreen mode.
This is apperantly not supported by default in firefox.

Install this plugin: http://www.krickelkrackel.de/autohide/autohide.xpi

Now you can launch firefox:
/usr/bin/firefox-3.5 -fullscreen

Firefox 3.5 – making “Well, this is embarrasing” go away

The session handling in firefuck could be quite wearing sometimes.

This is how you disable this function:

about:config

Change these to false:

browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash
browser.sessionstore.resume_session_once

How to speedup Firefox by VACUUM’ing FF’s sqlite databases

Firefox easily often gets like Hersheys’s Syrup.
What may help is to cleanup the SQlite3 databases Firefox uses to store _SHIT_

First see that you have sqlite3 installed:
apt-get install sqlite3

Then stop/kill/murder all your firefox procs.

Run the following from a console:
for i in $(find ~/.mozilla -type f -name '*.sqlite' -print);do sqlite3 $i "VACUUM;";done

Most garbage in your firefox databases should now be clean. Fire it up again.
