Make YSlow work with Firefox 9.0

YSlow won’t work with Fire Fox 9 because it requires Firebug to work. And the latest versions of Firebug, 1.8, 1.9, and 1.10, do not work with YSlow. Until Yahoo gets around to updating their plugin, use this method to make YSlow work with your Firefox. You may want to backup your profile before doing this – instructions are provided at the end of the posting. Type in about:config into your address bar. After accepting the “this is dangerous” message right click and create a new entry. Make sure it is a BOOL. Set the name to: extensions.checkCompatibility.9.0 and then set the value to false Now visit http://getfirebug.com/releases/firebug/1.7X/ and click on the latest version of Firebug 1.7, which I believe is firebug-1.7X.0b4.xpi I’m assuming that you already have YSlow installed – but if you don’t then install it too. Restart Firefox. Voila! Now your YSlow is working again! Feel free to leave a comment to thank me or suggest any tips or tricks related to YSlow and Firefox :) You can either keep using Firebug 1.7 but if it’s really bothering you go ahead and reinstall the latest Firebug and then create a separate profile to use with YSlow. See Mozilla’s notes on using separate profiles: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_manager

Most Common User Agents

A dynamic, downloadable list of the most common user agents. Have you ever wondered what Most Common User Agents are? This is a list of the most common user agents, dynamically generated to remain accurate and up to date. Often times people will post a list on their site, which soon becomes outdated. So, I decided I would create a user agent list that is dynamically generated and updated- it uses data from my own website to keep the list of user-agent data up to date – which means the list stays up to date as new browsers are released and new user agents emerge. It is, in effect, a highly accurate representation of common useragents. Below you will find a table showing the most popular / most-used UserAgents and percentage of visitors who had that user-agent when they visited the site. And, as of May 2012 this page should now be even more dynamic with a new method for calculating a rolling average of visitors. Your user agent is: Last Updated: Tue, 27 Oct 2020 23:35:27 +0000 percentuseragentsystemuser_agent_string_md5 11.2%Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/85.0.4183.121 Safari/537.36Chrome 85.0  Win10ce4e9e986b0fbc713624d54b83c362839.2%Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/86.0.4240.75 Safari/537.36Chrome Generic  Win1044a5e524f134e3228c7b0b16c2224ffc5.9%Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:81.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/81.0Firefox Generic  Win10061976375808a67dff9a2be9bf8194433.5%Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/86.0.4240.111 Safari/537.36Chrome Generic  Win103a39a1d66137823f367d0482940bd7b83.1%Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_15_7) AppleWebKit/605.1.15 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/14.0 Safari/605.1.15Safari Generic  macOS4853ba0b18950b426d4c3572e2139b702.5%Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_15_6) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/85.0.4183.121 Safari/537.36Chrome 85.0  macOS2e3b07d506595682929bc3b13f0800012.2%Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X … Continue reading
