Bookmarks, guest logins, and the Firefox browser

If you ever log in to a computer at the reference desk and the bookmarks are missing from Firefox or you find that the guest logins print out weirdly from Firefox, you'll want to install two different add-ons for Firefox. I've added detailed instructions in the wiki about how to get these two add-ons and how to configure them:

  • Foxmarks (this is the add-on you need to install and set up so that you get the standard set of bookmarks across all four PCs at the desk)
  • IE Tab (this is the add-on you need so that the guest logins you print out come out clearly)
If there are steps missing from the wiki pages detailing installation of these add-ons, I encourage you to edit the pages and help improve them.
