TLS in HTTPS protects the HTTP request, but it doesn't protect the lower layers. That is, a HTTPS website can still be blocked by inspecting the TLS "Server Name Indication" header (the same feature that's used for HTTPS virtual hosting), or by IP address (if the client doesn't request any specific server via TLS SNI), both of which are sent outside the TLS ...

Go to your power management options, and select the profile: High performance. Then tweak the on battery part to your liking. Note that even if you would tweak it similar to the balanced setting, it will still do weird stuff to consume energy. For example, I use intensive programs for making music, and on the normal setting, I can't even play back some of ...

2 hours of browsing and 400MB cache translate to an average of 56KByte/s while browsing. Seems pretty legit to me. If you suspect that the cache does not only fill up because of browsing, you should consider scanning your PC for Viruses/Malware. The accumulation of 400MB of Cache should really not slow down your Computer, unless your hard disk is running ...

This is not a bug. it is compliance with RFC 2616 Multiple message-header fields with the same field-name MAY be present in a message if and only if the entire field-value for that header field is defined as a comma-separated list [i.e., #(values)]. It MUST be possible to combine the multiple header fields into one "field-name: field-value" pair, without ...

Have you tried Firefox in the Safe mode, with all add-ons disabled? Right now on my computer, Firefox is using 0.2% of CPU processing, though it goes up to ~2% when playing a Flash video on YouTube, so the behavior you're experiencing is not normal. To start in Safe mode: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode.

The easiest way to retrieve a site's icon programmatically is to use the http://grabicon.com service, and I'm not just saying that because I created it :) It's a drop-in replacement for google's S2 service - it's free, lets you specify the icon size you want, and generates unique default icons for sites that don't have one. Just do this: ...

You can use bookmark keywords to search from the address bar with them (like wr for the Russian Wikipedia etc.).

I believe that setting was removed by Mozilla. The alternative way is to set the search bar engine to DuckDuckGo and the address bar will also work as needed. In order to change the search engine, navigate to Firefox preferences, click on the Search tab, find Default Search Engine, drop-down the list which might currently be set to Google, and select ...

Google Chrome comes with its own built-in Pepper Flash Player, so there is no need to install an additional Adobe Flash Player if Google Chrome is the only web browser that you are using.

Since IE is so tightly wired into the rest of Windows, if you change IE, Windows functionality can be altered. Microsoft prefers upgrading using their Windows/Microsoft Updates system, which is Invented Here, as opposed to Not Invented Here (for values of Here = Redmond).

The reason is that the (global) setting is no longer affected (Firefox 35 and later) by changing it in the find facility itself. Instead, it has to be done through the about:config mechanism: Enter about:config into the address bar and press Enter. Accept the warning message. Type "case". Double click on the entry accessibility.typeaheadfind.casesensitive ...

Firefox is ok with duplicate bookmarks, it's just that Ctrl + D that assumes you don't want duplicates. Here are a few workarounds: Before pressing Ctrl + D, add a # character to end of the URL. This makes no difference for the interpretation of the URL but is enough for Firefox to think it's a new bookmark. Instead of using Ctrl + D, go into the Bookmark ...

You can use gi. This always works. You can also use i. This will work perfectly on Google. i will take you to ignore mode, so the focus is completely with google. And Google has this feature that when you type on their page, the search bar automatically gains focus and you're in their search bar automagically.

For Firefox, there's Hide Unwanted Results of Google Search. Seems to work reasonably well - just right-click a link in the search results, and click hide, and it will hide all results from that domain (you can add a manual regex in the settings, instead, if that's more useful).

For future reference, in case anyone has this problem, check the shortcut you use to start the program. The last adwares I cleaned (manually) used that simple but effective trick.

…the article images fade in instead of already being there… What you are seeing is a frontend web development technique known as “lazy loading.” The idea is that if a page has—let’s say—20 images on it, the browser would only load images as they appear in the viewport. This speeds up page load since maybe like 3-4 images can show up in the viewport at a ...
