Just annotations of little "how to's", so I know I can find how to do something I've already done when I need to do it again, in case I don't remember anymore, which is not unlikely. Hopefully they can be useful to others, but I can't guarantee that it will work, or that it won't even make things worse.

Three convenient customizations to firefox / iceweasel

Restore an old/previous session, but do not load the tabs right away: an end to the dilemma of empty session versus restoring tabs. Add to "about:config", if it's not already there:

Code:
browser.sessionstore.restore_on_demand
Set to "true", and it doesn't hurt to add also:


Code:
browser.sessionstore.max_concurrent_tabs
Set to 0. I guess it depends on the version or whatever, I don't care to find out. I wish I knew that long ago, apparently it exists ever since firefox 4. Which isn't that long ago anyway, with all the new-version-number-frenzy they got into.



Making mozilla look native: I guess it may depend on which DE you're using; I'm on openbox and using qtcurve, which generates the same version of a custom theme for both QT/KDE and GTK (but not GTK3), and it worked quite well, it only lacks a highlight on tabs as we hover:

http://userstyles.org/styles/49622/n...fox-4-on-linux

It says "4" but works for firefox 10 or whatever it's now.



And for those who prefer compact interfaces: "replacing the Iceweasel/firefox button with an icon":
