Couple of days back, I was trying to take screenshot with Firefox. As usual I started out with searching for plugins which could take a screen shot for the whole page and not just the visible portion of the page. Installed couple of them, some did not work. Finally I found something called Development Bar.
So, here is a simple way to take a screenshot. Press “Shift+F12”. This will bring up a bar in the bottom of the firefox window. To take a screenshot, type:
I was trying to install the duplicate Bookmark remover for the Firefox but for some reasons, was not able to install it. That apart, the point is that I was trying to get a program to do this for me rather than a plugin. So, after some search, finally I found here. This is a ruby script. The script requires ruby gems-json for doing this.
The idea is very simple. Export the bookmarks in json format.
Run the script with ruby on your bookmarks. This will create a new file.
Use the restore feature of the bookmarks to restore the newly created bookmarks file, which ofcourse should not have any duplicates. 🙂
Firefox 7.0 nightly builds have started and it seems to be quite fast. So, if you dont care about some sites not opening or once in a while your browser crashing, been using for 2 days on Windows , has not crashed so far and worked on all sites so far :), then you should install the Nightly build.
Head over to the nightly build site and install the appropriate build for your OS.
With all these now my Firefox process shows only ~130MB memory and decreases to ~12MB when minimized and am really happy with the speed. Also noticeably the CPU used is also quite low compared to Aurora I was using 2 days back 😉
