Gecko-based browsers

From LinuxReviews
Jump to: navigation, search

Gecko is the rendering engine used by Mozilla Corporation merchendise web browsers such as Seamonkey and Firefox. Many other browsers, such as Galeon, are basically a version of this Mozilla Corporation rendering engine beneath a different graphical user interface.

[edit] Common configuration options

All (well, almost all) gecko based browsers allow you to type about:config in the navigation bar and then change all kinds of "secret" settings. These settings are common for all Gecko-based browsers, regardless of these options being available in the menu or not.

[edit] Privacy / Proxy settings

These settings may be important if you use software like Tor:

  • network.proxy.socks_remote_dns - Set this to true if you are using a remote proxy, it makes sure DNS lookups are always done remote (which avoids DNS-leakage).
