Sometimes when you install a software downloaded from the internet, it ends up installing a toolbar or add-on in your Firefox browser – resulting in hijacked search results.
Similarly, follow the steps 3 and 4 for the following preferences too and reset their values to the default ones. If even after making the above changes, you still see the remnants of the search toolbar in the Firefox web browser, then its time to reset your Firefox browser and create a new profile. Linux Mint 13 just got released and I have been using it (MATE edition) on my laptop for nearly a week and from my experience, this is a very nice and stable release. As always on a freshly installed system, the first thing you need to do is to update the packages.
If your computer has a dedicated graphic card, you should consider installing the proprietary driver for it. After installing the driver, you need to reboot the system for the new driver to take effect. In Linux Mint 13, Firefox uses two search engines, Yahoo search if you use the search box and DuckDuckGo if you search in the address box. To change the search engine of the address bar from DuckDuckGo to Google, you open Firefox , type about:config on the address bar.
Linux Mint 13 comes with very few themes and icon sets so I think everybody would love to get more themes and icon to decorate the desktop. If you are interested in conky like me, you can check my articles about beautiful conky configs. You can use the Mint Menu to search for and launch applications or access quickly to preferred folders. You may find that after you remove some applications out of and add new ones into the Favorite List, the icons arent arranged into the order you want and you cannot drag these icons around on the menu. Besides the root partition, there are several other partitions in the hard drive of my laptop.
There are actually many ways to auto mount partitions in Linux, one of them is to use a tool called  "pysdm". After that, click on the Assistant button on the right and you will have a menu to customize the behavior of each partition.
Just do that to all the partitions you want to mount at booting up and next time, you dont need to manually mount these partition anymore.
By default, the desktop of Linux Mint 13 always displays the icons of mounted partitions and USB drives and I think that makes the desktop ugly.
Compiz is an awesome tool, you can do a lot of cool things with it so I recommend everybody to install Compiz.
I myself at times need to run some Windows applications so Wine is always a must-have tool for me.


Some toolbar software are so badly programmed that even after you remove them from Firefox, they leave behind the changed settings and your search results in Firefox are still affected. This article – how to reset Mozilla Firefox to fix common problems shows you steps to reset your Firefox web browser and get rid of all the annoying toolbars. However, depending on personal need and preference, users still need to tweak and customize a few things to make it more usable. To do so, you can click on the shield icon on the notification area, enter the password and the update manager will appear. When the open source driver does get the job done, it still cannot hold a candle to the proprietary one. I always prefer Google over these search engines so one of the first things I did after installing Linux Mint 13 was to change the Firefox search engine back to Google search.
You will see a warning, just click on the "I'll be careful" button to go to the config page. To customize the Mint Menu, right click on it and choose the Preferences option and the Menu preferences window will open. If you are using Linux Mint 13 too and have any other ideas, please tell me by giving a comment. To check for available proprietary drivers, open the Mint menu, go to control center then Additional Drivers then select the driver to install.
I may be accused of being flamboyant but a conky setup was the first thing I got for my Linux Mint 13 desktop. And I hate it when I tried to access a file from an application, I realized that I forgot to mount these partitions.
If you are using an ATI card, I recommend you to pick the second driver in the additional drivers window since the first one had caused my system to crash.

A button that must be used manually by the user does not change the fact that the setting must be stored somewhere and can be manipulated by third party software. Reply Soren Hentzschel June 28, 2015 at 12:12 pm # You think it's stupid to protect the users? It's a very interesting point of view.Users who can change hidden (!) preferences in Firefox can also install an add-on, where is the problem? The majority of the userbase doesn't know tools like about:conifg and need to be protected. YES they could have, but they didn't.Now, lets talk about "stupid" and "protect users"When you go to a site, that has an untrusted ssl certificate, and you get the option to "Add Exception", the idea behind the extra step is to protect the user, BUT, when you click the "add exception" you are taken to a page with additional information, and you still have to click to add the exception.


Again the added step to make sure a user really means to do this.The "stupid" factor comes in when you get to the add page, and the check box is DEFAULTED to checked, for "Permanently Store this exception"*THAT* is not secure! You should read the article again.I didn't read further because the first paragraph already misses the point.

They "know" what's better for users, they're pushing their ideas without giving a fuck about users opinion and feedback - but instead giving a shitty excuses about how they care and encourage people to bring functionality they broke again. Reply Soren Hentzschel June 28, 2015 at 12:32 pm # "Why I have feeling that M wants push that new tab page with these thumbnails to get some money from suggestions aka ads?"Your feeling is wrong because you can still disable the thumbnails.
Reply insanelyapple June 28, 2015 at 1:01 pm # And does that turns off the feature or just brings me texture that mimics about:blank? Still my fav browser, but their actions sometimes are so unnecessary and no acceptable alternative solution.I don't want to use any addon at all, Also i dont want their stupid thumbnails adds. Reply Chris Granger June 28, 2015 at 12:57 pm # I'm sure glad someone fixed this problem so quickly with an add-on. As active member in the Firefox support I see almost every day users with hijacked new tab pages.
And it should be mentioned that Mozilla not only removed this feature, Mozilla also introduced a new API for add-on developers to bring this functionality back. Firefox is becoming a bloatware browser where users need to install a big list of add-ons, hurting perfomance and memory usage, just to use again features removed from the browser because Mozilla didn't provide a better solution. You talk about this new API, so what will stop hijackers from altering the new tab page again?. If the same thing can be accomplished on the default New Tab Page, Mozilla is not removing this setting option from users. Reply fokka June 28, 2015 at 2:03 pm # thanks martin for reporting on the change and thanks as well to soren to giving us a solution to the problem!personally and as many other advanced users i'm quite sceptical about this "dumbing down" of the browser, since for me it always has been a given that i can change the newtab page to my liking without installing another addon.
