Tech Tip: Reset Firefox

Reset FirefoxFirefox is a great web browser but sometimes things go wrong and  you may want to reset your web browser to its original state. This could be because of unexplained slowness, malfunctioning extensions or simply a desire to refresh your browser. Instead of uninstalling and reinstalling the browser you can conveniently Reset Firefox.

To Reset Firefox open the Firefox menu then from the Help menu select Troubleshooting Information. In the top right of the tab that opens is a button with the option to reset Firefox. On Windows you can also access this option when Firefox is not running through the Start Menu by selecting your Mozilla Firefox folder in All Programs and running Mozilla Firefox (Safe mode). In the dialog box that opens you will be presented with the option to reset Firefox.

When you reset Firefox you will be clearing, cookies, bookmarks, browsing history and saved passwords. You will also lose any extensions (add-ons) that you manually installed. Since these may be the origin of the problems that caused you to reset the browser in the first place this behaviour is understandable. You can always install Firefox Add-ons after the reset is complete.

Tech Tip: Save money by buying Kindle version of books

Kindle AppIf you do not have a problem reading electronic copies of books you can save a lot of money by purchasing electronic copies of books instead of hard copies. Amazon  offers free Kindle Reading apps for various devices and platforms. You can read Kindle  versions of books on a computer (Windows or Mac), smartphone (Android, iPhone & iPod Touch , Windows Phone, Blackberry) tablets (iPad, Android tablet, Windows 8) and of course one of Amazon’s various commercial  Kindle devices. You can also access books via a regular browser using the Kindle Cloud Reader.

Kindle versions of books are a great option if you are going to school or want instant access to books without the hassles and costs of shipping. I was able to purchase a Kindle version of a text book for $7 USD when the paperback was priced at about $78 USD (before shipping). The Kindle reading app is similar to  Adobe Reader used to view PDFs and other electronic book readers you may be accustomed to. It allows you to copy text, highlight and add notes. An Amazon account is required to use the Kindle apps.

Tech Tip: Update Windows programs with FileHippo Update Checker

FileHippo Update CheckerIt can be a task to keep all the programs on your Windows computer updated. Allowing programs to automatically update themselves may slow down your computer start up time and hog system resources. Not updating software can make your computer vulnerable to security exploits fixed in newer versions or leave you without the new features of the updated software.

If you would like to update your Windows programs manually but want to easily see which programs are outdated you can try FileHippo’s Update Checker. You simply download the program and it scans your installed programs notifying you of those that are outdated afterwards. The Update Checker directs you to FileHippo’s website where the version  information of outdated software is presented along with the version information of the latest available versions. You can then download the latest version directly from FileHippo’s website or search for it from each individual software vendor’s website if you prefer.

Since the FileHippo Update Checker only scans for programs in the FileHippo repository it may not detect all outdated software on your computer. It is also not a replacement for Windows Update which every Windows user should run regularly to stay updated with security updates from Microsoft. The Update Checker scans the programs installed on your computer and reports it back to the FileHippo website too provide you with the available updates so only use it if you are comfortable with this behaviour.

Windows Live Messenger to SkypeIn case you haven’t heard, Windows Live Messenger is being retired and Microsoft is urging its users to switch to Skype. The instant messaging client that rose to popularity as MSN Messenger is due to be shut down in March 2013 everywhere except China (BBC News). As an alternative Microsoft is urging its users to switch to Skype – an instant messaging client from a company Microsoft bought in May 2011.
