Firefox ranks as the third most-used browser in the world — and fans of it remain fiercely loyal. So what makes this free option so enticing, and how can you make sense of its maze of many menus, buttons and options? Technology writer James Vautravers walks you through the basics of how to get started, providing practical tips for installation, setting up your home page, customizing and using themes and even adding a few extras — such as a dictionary, ad blocker or social media extension — to enhance your experience and pack more power with a click of the mouse. “Firefox Basics for the Computer Illiterate” explains the ins and outs of privacy and security, so you can adjust how and whether your activity tracks while online. From start to finish, Vautravers’ step-by-step guidance sets you on your way to browse like a Firefox pro. Excerpt from the Book:“Firefox is the third most-used browser in the world. But it is different from its competitors in that Firefox is a not-for-profit venture. Mozilla, the corporation and foundation that created and distributes Firefox, is motivated not by a drive to make as much money as possible, but by a drive to make the Internet a better place. Firefox looks simple enough, but the more you poke around and click its various buttons, the more complicated it becomes. It can even seem rather daunting. But fear not, this book will cover all the basic features of Firefox, as well as a few not-so-basic ones, in a plain and easy-to-follow approach.” Highlights:Easy instructions for getting started with FirefoxCustomizing your browserEnsuring browsing and search securityAnd much more!Includes:1.Introduction to Firefox and Mozilla 2.Downloading the Browser3.Customizing Firefox4.Privacy and Security5.Next Steps with FirefoxAbout the Author:James Vautravers lives in Portland, Oregon.

This is your guide to building Internet applications and user interfaces with the Mozilla component framework, which is best known for the Firefox web browser and Thunderbird email client. Programming Firefox demonstrates how to use the XML User Interface Language (XUL) with open source tools in the framework's Cross-Platform Component (XPCOM) library to develop a variety of projects, such as commercial web applications and Firefox extensions.This book serves as both a programmer's reference and an in-depth tutorial, so not only do you get a comprehensive look at XUL's capabilities--from simple interface design to complex, multitier applications with real-time operations--but you also learn how to build a complete working application with XUL. If you're coming from a Java or .NET environment, you'll be amazed at how quickly large-scale applications can be constructed with XPCOM and XUL.Topics in Programming Firefox include:
- An overview of Firefox technology
- An introduction to the graphical elements that compose a XUL application
- Firefox development tools and the process used to design and build applications
- Managing an application with multiple content areas
- Introduction to Resource Description Files, and how the Firefox interface renders RDF
