 +==== Updates ====
 +To disable automatic updates you now have to do it though ''​about:​config''​ :/
 +
 +  - Enter ''​about:​config''​ into the address bar,
 +  - Search for '​update'​
 +  - Find ''​app.update.auto''​
 +  - Double-click on that link to change ''​true''​ to ''​false''​.

 +==== Reader View ====
 +
 +Reader View is a nice clean way to read stuff online. Makes a lot of news and writing sites actually tolerable. Strips out everything but the text and images. Especially great on mobile, as it will turn pages that aren't designed for a small screen into something comfortable to read in that format.
 +
 +Some add-ons for enhancing reader view (that I'm yet to test 8-)):
 +
 +  * [[ffaddon>​reader-view|Open in Reader View]] - right-click menu option.
 +  * [[ffaddon>​automatic-reader-view|Automatic Reader View]] - Always open particular sites in reader view.
 +  * [[ffaddon>​auto-reader-view|Auto Reader View]] - ``

   - Enter ''​browser.contentHandlers.types.[number].uri'',​ then add the URL for your readers 'add feed' function placing a ''​%s''​ where the feed's URL should go. This last part's the trickiest to describe, 'cause it's gunna differ for each reader. But I'll add examples below   - Enter ''​browser.contentHandlers.types.[number].uri'',​ then add the URL for your readers 'add feed' function placing a ''​%s''​ where the feed's URL should go.

 +===== Troubleshooting ===== 
 +==== Browser works, pages don't load ==== 
 +Sometimes after a crash Firefox will start-up just fine, but pages won't load. Deleting ''​~/​cache/​mozilla''​ seems to fix it.
