GUI Config & Configuration Mania – 2 Useful Firefox Addons

Tired with “about.config” to set advanced settings in Firefox because of  technical and packed in a geek interface ?Here are 2 addons which enable you to hack this settings.

1. gui:config 0.3.7 :gui:config makes it easier to change preferences that can only be found in the “about:config”. The extension supports a comfortable way to apply changes to these options. It displays the options, included in the current version, using checkboxes, drop down lists and text boxes.

With Bug Shooting, you can catch anything from icons in the taskbar, third party programs or simply capture an area or the entire screen. It also lets you copy from the clipboard to import images into Bug Shooting and vice versa, i.e. copy from the program, complete with annotations, and paste it into another application. This is one of it's most useful features because with similar programs, you end up unable to share screenshots on the clipboard.
