Firefox Address Bar – Change it back to the default!

Firefox the geeks favourite browser.

Firefox has a very clever address bar, that can predict URL’s better than any other browser in the market.

You can also search directly from the address bar. By Default, Firefox uses Google to search for user queries. Sometimes, these address bar settings are hi-jacked by toolbars and other softwares (As I unfortunately found out!).

They change the default Google search into other. In my case, after installing iLivid download manager, my default search changed from Google.com to searchqu.

In this post I’ll show you how to restore the default address bar search settings.

In order to restore the address bar search settings to default, open your Firefox and follow the below steps.

  1. Type about:config in address bar and hit Enter. A warning will be shown to you, don’t panic just press “I’ll be careful, I promise!” button.
  2. In Filter box, type keyword.URL.
  3. Right-click on keyword.URL and select Reset.

Free and Legal Film and Movie Downloads

Without getting into too much of a debate, about downloading films for free illegally, it is possible to download and watch films that are out of Copyright, or in the Public Domain for free.

There are a lot of sites that host the films

As such, I hope the below list of sources help if your interested in looking for out of Copyright or Public Domain films.

Wikipedia – A very robust list of all films out of copyright, with such classics as It’s a Wonderful Life to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Click on the film you want, and view its information. To the bottom of the page you should find a link to the film online.

BFI – The British Film Institute, offers a variety of free films and shorts to watch.

Internet Archive – A slightly American tang, but very good all the same. From movies to Public Service Announcements.

OpenFlix – A directory of films all thought to be in the Public Domain.
