Thinking of using Firefox in your library?

If not, you should be, IMHO. Anyway, here’s two somewhat technical articles related to this topic.

  • Hacking Firefox at my library: instructions & stuff
    Instructions on how to lock-down and tweak Firefox for public consumption. I don’t necessarily agree with everything suggested but I don’t have any problems big enough to complain about either.
  • 40 Useful Firefox Add-Ons for Librarians
    There are a lot of Firefox add-ons out in the wild. Here’s a list of 40 that are most useful for us librarians. Part 1, Part 2, Part 3

    Thank you for linking to my Firefox instructions.

    I’d like to clarify, though: that post is not about “recommendations” for hacking Firefox and what libraries “should” do, it’s just a detailed description of what I did at my library. It’s very specific to the needs of my library, which is why I sprinkle the post with notes about how you can change it to pretty much do whatever you want.

    Thanks for the clarification. Sorry I wasn’t more specific. That’s what I get for trying to clean out the to-blog-list all in one day.:-)
