Sad about firefox

So for years I’ve used Firefox as my browser of choice. However with them moving to a more chrome like interface what this means is that a lot of the plugins I used to customize firefox will no longer work. I could switch to a browser like pale moon, but that last I used it, it wasn’t what I wanted either. Plus I hear it has some security issues. So I guess for now I’ll start using chrome again. Once Vivaldi get bookmark and setting sync I may consider switching to it.


Making apt:// work in firefox kubuntu

I finally figured out how to make apt:// urls work in firefox kubuntu. apt:// urls allow you to install software at the click of link in your browser. The fix was actually rather simple, just run the following command in your terminal.

sudo apt-get install apturl firefox-3.5-gnome-support

After running the command head over to allmyapps and test it by trying to install one of the programs they have listed.
