Use Mozilla Firefox’s Sidebar Option


al1r4do5 Use Mozilla Firefox’s Sidebar OptionFirefox has lots of neat plug-ins, but if you don’t require them and can get the same result with something more standard; it nice because it uses less resources and less resources typically mean a faster system.

A lot of people know you can drag URLs from the address bar to shortcut bar in Firefox, but I don’t think average people know about the option to optn those links in the SIDEBAR.

For my example here, I used Twitter [m.twitter.com]. It’s easy simple and straight forward.

You can do the same thing with Facebook.

The possibilities are almost endless.

To set it up, enter this in to the URL:

https://mail.google.com/tasks/ig?pli=1

Drag this to the Shortcut Bar and then adjust the settings to open in the Sidebar; your done. It’s uber-easy.

What’s your cool way to use the Firefox Sidebar?

Hope this helps.
