Firefox Firefoxes is a shell scripts that will install all major versions of Firefox on OS X, and set up separate profiles so you can use them simultaneously.

You can create a new service with automator, use the "Run Shell Script" action, and use: open -a FireFox "http://www.google.com/search?q=$1" as the shell script text, then save it as "Open with Firefox" or whatever you like. -or- follow this summary from this thread: Download and Install OnMyCommand/OMCEdit Open OMCEdit Click on "Download Commands" ...

Here an answer from our friends over at SuperUser. TL;DR: You can, but only with some extra software. They suggest AudioHijack Pro

Safari stores its passwords in the OSX Keychain. Open /Applications/Utilities/Keychain Access.app, select the "Login" keychain (this should be default) and select "Passwords" under "Category". Doubleclick an entry and check "Show password"; you'll be asked for your login keychain password (this is usually the same as your account password). (For a while I ...

Yes, you can have both versions. In fact you can install the new Firefox in your home directory's Application folder (and it will be only accessible with your account). If you don't have ~/Applications folder, you can create it (and Finder will mark it with the same icon as the /Applications one). Note that you cannot use both versions simultaneously. You ...

This isn't a dialog, this is the result of mounting (opening) the Firefox.dmg (think of it as an archive or drive image). For mac users it's obvious - you should drag the FF icon to the Applications folder shortcut (the blue folder). This will copy the Firefox application in the /Applications/ folder. Then just unmount (eject) the Firefox.dmg archive and ...

You can disable or change the shortcut for Dashboard in System Preferences - Mission Control for Mac OS X 10.7+. In older versions of Mac OS X the appropriate preference pane should be called Exposé. After you changed the shortcut, it should correctly activate Firebug instead when Firefox is active.

You should try opera Opera 12 download it fast and works well. Caveat: Opera only works on Macs with Intel-based processors. If you have a PowerPC chip (G5), good luck. Opera 12 won't work.

Any application can network directly or use the system settings. As @geekosaur states, Opera has its own setting, as does Firefox (along with the option to use the system settings). Chrome and Safar use the system settings. It's really up to the application developer how they implement their proxy controls (if they even have proxying!).

For passwords, I highly recommend 1Password. It won't enter the passwords into Safari for iPad (drat it) but it will sync your passwords with your Mac, and then you can search for what you need on the iPad.

Chris, You can achieve this using the keyboard prefs just as you were trying. You simply need to create one more shortcut. In Chrome you would: Set Command-D to Open Location... Set Command-L to Bookmark This Page... By setting an explicit shortcut for Bookmark This Page... you get rid of the conflict an ensure there aren't two menu options with the ...

Opera is the next biggest after the main lot Opera also has a mobile version, the idea of Opera is to load all of the HTML and files before it displays anything, so it loads full web pages faster than most The next important thing about Opera is that it has support from webmasters. If you look at Apple source code on their websites it mentions support for ...

The difference is likely to do with the architecture and interprocess communication choices of each browser. Modern web browsers render pages in separate processes. Apple has a framework called IOSurface that provides a streamlined way for one process to pass an image to another process. This framework was introduced in Mac OS X 10.6, aka Snow Leopard, for ...

For the impatient: You have two possibilities: PowerPC-based Mac: TenFourFox and no Flash. Intel-based Mac: Opera (thanks to Cybermatatu for this one!) with older Flash 10.3 (beware, Flash 10.3 is an archived version and is no longer supported nor updated with security fixes by Adobe). Long version: If you use an Intel processor you can use Opera: ...

Seeing your comment, this is because when you click the X on a Mac app, you are only closing the window, not the Application itself (like it does in Windows). Therefore you were still in a 'current' session, and that session had no windows.

If you have installed many fonts (font packages), you should disable the ones that you don't use. Also try running Firefox in safe mode (without addons). FF4 should start for about 2-3 seconds.

To remove Firefox.app: Login with an administrator account sudo rm -rf /Applications/Firefox.app/ You get the same result by just dragging the Firefox app from /Applications/ to the trash. If the crashes continue after reinstalling, deleting preferences and support files in the user library may help: ~/Library/Preferences/org.mozilla.firefox* ...

To type this character, type ⌥+E, then ⇧+E. "É" is the character I get. In Lion, I understand one can hold down the key, a la iOS, and get a list of possible characters with accents for many of the keys:

French layout? Press caps lock ⇪. Press the é key (that's the 2 on a QWERTY). Press caps lock ⇪ again. But you need to make sure you're using the French layout, and not French - numeric (“Français - numérique”, French flag with “123” beneath it). Otherwise, you're explicitly asking the system to use the caps lock key as a shift lock for the numbers ...

I have had some success in a Flash-less world by using Safari, and enabling the Develop menu. Then when I get to a page that requires Flash, I can set the User Agent to report as an iPad and I will get videos streamed in a QuickTime player rather than Flash-based.

Possible solution: changing first preferred language in browser. It might fix the problem if you choose English as you first preferred language in browser settings. When requesting a page, browsers sends list of preferred languages for content. (For example, based on these settings Google redirects you to your local Google site.) Changing preferred ...

Firefox requires a Window library to be linked with e.g. QT, Gnome and several other C libraries. Thus to build it will need a lot of other code so I think using Macports/Fink would save time. If you want any other X11 apps then Macports/Fink is likely to be the easiest way to get them. Also as per @Nathan G. I have found installing Macports not to be ...

What you need to do is create a new Automator service. Unfortunately, Firefox's AppleScript support sucks, so you'll have to do it manually. You should be able to use a combination of the tips in this article and this comment, and the page Calavera linked to should give you a general idea of how to format the URLs.

The file what you downloaded, is an "DMG" archive type (like ISO image). When you double click on it, you open it (called mounted it). After opening the archive you should install the application - simple way - drag and drop into the destination. After the install - eject and usually can trash the dmg archive.

This is the definitive answer. Here are two official FireFox add-ons (plugins) that let you modify or define your own keyboard commands and shortcuts. Key config My Keyboard Navigator

I'd say Omniweb by the Omnigroup.
