Keep your Quick Launch Simple

Friday, July 16th, 2010
Some times we’ll endup in having lots of shotcut icons on our desktop/quick launch toolbar. I was wondering how to reduce that since that looks very ugly for me to have long list of icons hanging on your quick launch bar.I was remembering that my room met was using some kind of utility to avoid this. After numerous trials i have got the answer back ;)
Create the shortcuts for all of your application which you wanted to get rid of from quick launch,into a folder(In my case it’s “D:\Kumar\Shortcuts”). I have followed the other quciker work around whcih is having call names for all the applications ;) . My list looks like the following. (i.e FF will call Firefox, EC will call Eclipse, ME will call to MyEclipse)
Shorcuts
Now how do i make this work through my “RUN” command in windows.
Go to My Computers -> Properties -> Advanced -> Click in Environment Variables -> Change the System Variable “PATH” like the following..
So you are going to append your folder(”D:\Kumar\Shortcuts”) with the existing value in “PATH”. After this go to Run command and type “FF” it should be opening FireFox for you.
Adding to System Var
Hope you liked it. :)

Sunday, September 20th, 2009
The recent Update from Mozilla for FF, made me to go crazy, Add-ons in my FF3.0.11 are not working in my new FF.Here is the work around, yeahhh ;)
When you are trying to install the extension, it may you give you the following error.
Install Failed
Download the XPI Files, For that You can follow this step.
saveas
Once you download the xpi file, rename the file extension with .zip.Open with Winzip/7Zip/Winrar.You will get the following structure.
struct
Open the install.rdf and change the em:maxVersion tag as follows
			<em:targetApplication>
				<Description>
					<em:id>{ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384}</em:id>
					<em:minVersion>3.0b1</em:minVersion>
					<em:maxVersion>3.5.*</em:maxVersion>
				</Description>
			</em:targetApplication>
		
When you are saving and closing your editor and go back to Winzip, You”ll be getting the following prompt. Click on “Yes”

Then rename your file to .xpi extension and just drag the file into FF. Then you”ll get the add-on installed.If you get any signing error, delete the meta-inf folder from the XPI file.
