Getting Started with Firefox
Master the most important application on your computer.
For most of us, daily computing is unthinkable without a browser. We use it to communicate, share, research, write, watch movies, and stream radio. In short, the browser stays in the foreground most of the time. Although plenty of good browsers are available on Linux, Mozilla Firefox still remains a popular choice on most mainstream distros, including Fedora.
Even the most inexperienced users can learn Firefox's basics in a matter of minutes. After all, browsing mostly means typing URLs into the address bar and using the Back and Forward buttons. However, Firefox offers plenty of useful features that can vastly improve your browsing experience and make your daily computing more efficient.
Modifying Preferences and Interface
Although Firefox comes with sensible default settings, you might want to adjust the browser's options to make it behave exactly the way you want. To do this, press the Menu button and choose Preferences. All options in the Firefox Preferences window are tucked under several tabs. Some of these options don't require any explanation, or they can be left at their defaults. However, a few useful settings deserve a closer look.
