  • WebRTC Vulnerability Shows Local IP Address Even When Using a Proxy or VPN Firefox Fix And Disable Solution


    If you visit a site that exploits the WebRTC vulnerability including whatismyipaddress.com it may show "Local IP Address" which would be the real IP of your machine.

    It's a little tricky if you are running a 64-bit OS which most people will be.

  • Linux Mint 17 How to Enable File Sharing Option in File Manager


    I still cannot understand how this would not be enabled by default and I struggled to find the reason why with manually installing samba etc.. wondering why the option for sharing was not in the menu. On Linux Mint "MATE" the package is called "caja-share" and on Cinnamon it is called "nemo-share" so edit the below command as necessary: *Also note that the "samba" package is necessary as it is not inst........

  • Flash slowing down your Firefox browser? Install Flashblock plugin


    Install the "Flashblock" plugin because we all know most unwanted high CPU usage situations come from the browser usually because of a looping Flash ad taking up 100% CPU.

  • Ubuntu/Linux disable extra Mouse Buttons Microsoft Comfort Mouse 4500


    I find it very annoying that this mouse has buttons on the side where you grip it and the left one goes back in the browser and the right one goes forward. Imagine if you're filling out a form and hit it, most forms/websites have no protection against it. Source: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2065400 Here's how I fixed it with xinput, it's too bad there's no good standard GUI to........
  • Firefox 11 solution for hidden tabs to the right


    After about 15 tabs I believe, they become hidden on the right side and are accessible only by furiously clicking the "right arrow" and even then it takes forever and honestly this hidden tab feature seems to slow down everything. If you enter "about:config" in your browser without the quotes just set this value to get rid of this annoying (one of many new) feature from Firefox (set it to false and restart your browser): services.sync.prefs.sync.brows........

    So you've just purchased your SSL cert, renewed it and installed it or maybe you've had it installed and working fine all the time with all other browsers but you've upgraded to a recent version of Firefox and suddenly get the warning "Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer" error. This is terrible since if you bought an SSL cert, you are most likely using it for trust purposes for your business and obviously that message will scare away most potential customers.........

It has a built-in popup blocker which works great and most importantly, it doesn't have a million critical security flaws which could compromise your security such as passwords for on-line banking etc..........
  • iPhone has no password/wand manager saving feature in Safari Web Browser


    I kind of expected this feature to be there in some form, to stay ahead of the pack Apple needs to stay on top of this. User's of HTC's Android smart phone which uses a Linux based OS with Google's power behind it, note that you can save passwords in the browser on that phone. Apple needs to continuously evaluate the needs in its core apps and make sure the features are cutting edge and top notch, if other phones come out with some of these seemingly small but essential features........

    This is unfortunate and frustrating as many sites use it, a lot of people are frustrated that TinyMCE does not work on the iPhone Safari browser.
