Change Ctrl+Enter Behavior in Firefox


Let us discuss how to change Firefox so that Shift+Enter auto-completes *.org instead of *.net. If you are unfamiliar with how this works, you can enter in google into the address bar, and use Ctrl+Enter instead of just hitting enter and Firefox will automatically complete it to www.google.com.

About:Config Tweak
To adjust the built-in Ctrl+Enter setting, you can just set some values in the Firefox configuration to change the default from .com to whatever else you want. If you want to change Shift+Ctrl+Enter then you’ll have to skip down to the next section.Navigate to about:config in your address bar, and then filter by browser.fixup as shown here:



There are a couple of values that you can set related to this setting:


  • browser.fixup.alternate.enabled – You can use this to turn the Ctrl+Enter behavior off entirely.
  • browser.fixup.alternate.prefix – This value sets the prefix assigned before the keyword you type.
  • browser.fixup.alternate.suffix – This value sets what is assigned after the keyword. For instance, you could use this to change the default suffix to your country code, like .co.uk

Use the URL Suffix Extension

If you want to configure all of the settings, including the Shift+Enter for .net and the Ctrl+Shift+Enter for .org, you can use the URL Suffix extension to configure all of them, or even set a custom value for when you hit Enter in the address bar.Install the extension, and then open up the options through the add-ons screen. You’ll see this easy to use dialog:

Any changes you make in here should be immediate.

No Domain!!!



How to Fix if Location bar Searches are Affected


If a term is entered in the Location bar, Firefox sends a request to your ISP to see if the term is actually a website address. If the server returns a no-such-domain error, Firefox will then initiate a search using the site listed in the keyword.URL preference . A number of ISPs and DNS servers are set not to return a no-such-domain error, and will redirect to their own search site instead.Make sure that the keyword.URL preference is set to the search site you want and that it's turned on.

Firefox redirect all searches

Firefox is a Web browser that allows you to search for content using search engines like Google, Yahoo! and Bing. If your searches are getting redirected to other sites, your computer might have gotten infected with the TDSS rootkit. This rootkit redirects your searches to websites that feature advertisements and other types of malware. You can remove this rootkit using the TDSSKiller application from Kaspersky.

How to stop websites from tracking the location



Most major websites track their visitors' behavior and then sell or provide that information to other companies (like advertisers). Firefox has a Do-not-track feature that lets you tell websites you don't want your browsing behavior tracked. This article explains what tracking is, how the Do-not-track feature works and how to turn it on.Tracking is a term that includes many different methods that websites, advertisers and others use to learn about your web browsing behavior. This includes information about what sites you visit, things you like, dislike and purchase. They often use this information to show ads, products or services specifically targeted to you.
When you turn on the Do-not-track feature, Firefox tells every website you visit  that you don't want your browsing behavior tracked. Honoring this setting is voluntary — individual websites are not required to respect it. Websites that do honor this setting should automatically stop tracking your behavior without any further action from you.
