Palemoon web browser (7)

This is a fork of an older version of firefox, version that still supports old style browser extensions. Newer api is more limited in what it is capable of, so many extensions just can't be ported to the modern firefox.

Was searching for noscript for it, apparently they use https://addons-legacy.palemoon.org/addon/ematrix/ instead. Interesting, it's noscript, adblock, image disabler, cookie disabler in one package.

nMatrix is just a port of uMatrix which is available for all browsers.

Once you get used to it, you can't go without it.

I'd rather just don't visit sites that are so full of garbage that using uMatrix is necessary there. Like just staying here. Or just going offline completely.

Let's get palemoon to look a bit better.

To get rid of that giant blue button taking space, install https://addons.palemoon.org/addon/toolbarize-menu-button/ . It appears broken right now, doesn't really work for me.

To show tabs right in the window title bar just like all modern browsers do, click Giant Palemoon Button -> Preferences -> Tabs on Top. Make sure you actually have two bars open when you do it.

To show url of a link under cursor in a pop-up, instead of always wasting an entire bar on it, click Giant Palemoon Button -> Preferences -> Status Bar Preferences -> Status -> General -> Links -> Show links in -> Pop-up. Now you can just disable status bar by clicking Giant Palemoon Button -> Preferences -> Status bar.

To enable user input in browser console, go to about:config, and change devtools.chrome.enabled to true. You only need to do it if you are developing your own firefox... i mean, palemoon addons, or doing something advanced like that.

To open browser console, press ctrl-shift-j.

If some not very trustworthy guy tells you to type something you don't quite understand in that browser console, don't.

Because Firefox booted off older extensions from their website completely, you now have to use this.

By the way, if you try to install .xpi extensions, don't mousewheel click or ctrl-click, it needs to be a proper click or it wouldn't install.

This thing allows you view, edit, create, and delete cookies. This thing is kinda necessary for me, because I forgot the password for one site I use, and create a cookie instead.
