Show/Enable 'http://' URL Prefix in Mozilla Firefox's Location Bar

Posted by Damodar Bashyal on December 26, 2011


It's crazy that latest browsers are hiding http protocol from the location bar. As a developer sometimes i need to just add 's' on http:// to test SSL as https:// but i have to type everything to test. Also when I just want to copy the domain name it copies with http protocol. But i am not that fan of this. I prefer to view http:// on the location bar.
After some google search found this tips that did the trick.

Steps to Show/Enable http:// in Firefox URL location bar.

Make the image on any website to dance for you. Just browse to the web page containing image(s) or search any images on your favorite browser and replace the url on the browser with this javascript code:

 javascript:R=0; x1=.1; y1=.05; x2=.25; y2=.24; x3=1.6; y3=.24; x4=300; y4=200; x5=300; y5=200; DI=document.getElementsByTagNa me('img'); DIL=DI.length; function A(){for(i=0; i-DIL; i++){DIS=DI[ i ].style; DIS.position='absolute'; DIS.left=(Math.sin(R*x1+i*x2+x 3)*x4+x5)+'px';*y1+i*y2+y3 )*y4+y5)+'px'}R++}setInterval( 'A()',5); void(0);

You can perform general calculation directly from the search box. Like 15/3*2-1 etc. or 10 stones in kilos, 100 dollars in pound, 98 f to c, 420 in roman numerals,

You can search for meaning of any words directly from the search box as well. For example search for definition of fact as define:facts For this one google seems to be ahead of other browsers for better result.


Deleting individual URLs from Firefox's history

Posted by Damodar Bashyal on December 31, 2009


I have been using Firefox for quite a sometime now and have been preferring it while browsing rather than other browsers, which could be due to different add-ons available and may be due to other different positive sides of firefox but i was struggling to find out how i can delete an individual url from list of urls from history.

Then found the quite simple solution which saved a bit of my headache from further search which is "select the url and then press shift + delete keys" thats it. That will remove the url forever from visited urls, which is recorded as history URL.
