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.

Jailbreaking the Goddess is a revolutionary revisioning of the feminine divine. Where the maiden, mother, crone archetypal system is tied to female biology and physical stages of life, the fivefold model liberates the female experience from the shackles of the reproductive model. In a woman's lifetime, she will go through several different cycles of beginnings, potential, creation, mastery, and wisdom. This fivefold model is not an adaption of the threefold. It is a new system that embraces the powerful, fluid nature of the lived experience of women today. Join Lasara Firefox Allen as she explores the nature of the five archetypes; gives examples of what areas of life each might preside over; lists goddesses that fit within each archetype; suggests ways to begin building relationship with the different archetypes; and provides simple rituals for recognition, transition, and invocation. Praise: "Jailbreaking the Goddess is an important contribution to the writings on Goddess tradition and feminist spirituality. . . . I love her political savvy, her sensitivity around issues of diversity and cultural awareness and appropriation, and her unabashed celebration of pleasure, sensuality, and life!"—Starhawk "This fiercely inspired body of work is art, theory, and passion. Genius."—Rosa De Anda, from her foreword "Lasara Firefox Allen delves deep into the ways in which colonialist language has shaped our experience of the divine feminine. . . . This is an innovative work that has the potential to change the face of modern feminist spirituality."—Suzanne Sterling, founder of Voice of Change
