When it’s possible to give the browser you’re using your own personal touch, it’s more pleasant to use. With Firefox, there are various things you can change to give the browser your own personal touch. You can choose from different colors and designs and if you ever get bored, change them at any time.
How to Add a Theme to Firefox
To give Firefox the look you want, you’ll need to go to the add-ons page. You can choose from a very long list of themes to choose from. When you’re on the page, scroll down a little, and you’ll see the themes option. They’ll be separated into two sections: Recommended themes and trending themes.
If you don’t see a theme you like on the main page, click on the see more themes option. You can search for your new themes by scrolling. Or, you can use the search tool to find a specific style.
How to Customize the Home Page for Firefox
When you access the home page for Firefox, it’s beneficial to see the thumbnails of the sites you frequently visit. But, if you’ve never changed anything, you’ll only see popular sites that aren’t the ones you want to have there. The good news is that changing the thumbnail on the home page is easy.
What you can do first is remove the ones you are not going to need. Place the cursor over the first one you want to erase until you see the three dots. Click on the dots and choose the remove option.
After you remove a few, you’ll start seeing some blank thumbnails. To add the sites, you want to click on the pencil icon and when the new window appears, add the necessary information.
How to Adjust Site Permissions on Firefox
By modifying site permissions, you can make browsing a site more enjoyable. For example, you won’t have to deal with annoying pop-ups or any notifications. You can adjust the site permission by going to:
- Privacy and Security
- Site Permissions
If there are any sites you want to allow a specific permission, click on the Settings button and add the URL. At the bottom left, you can check a small box if you want to block new requests for a certain permission.
There are other things you can do to personalize Firefox, such as turn off search suggestions and have sites stop asking for your permission.
How to Change the Toolbar in Firefox
Having the features, you regularly use at hand lets you get things done faster. Firefox lets you modify the toolbar so you can organize them the way you want. You can modify the toolbar by clicking on the three-lined menu option and choosing More tools > Customizr toolbar.
