Software Tips & Tricks!

Discussion in 'Software' started by Thomas Gabriel, Nov 4, 2012.

  1. Hi! I am inviting everyone to share some important software tips and tricks that could be useful to us. :)

    I am starting to share on how to secure and retrieve your password (in case you for get it) in each websites you access using Mozilla Firefox. I am using Firefox version 16.0.2.

    If you chose Firefox to remember your password option then the next time you visit the website again, it automatically fills in the username and password for you. In case, you've changed your password, just enter the right one.

    Viewing/Deleting a forgotten password saved in Firefox

    1. Choose Tools from the menu and select Options.
    2. Click on Security tab and Saved passwords button.
    3. On the Saved Paswords dialog box, click on Show Passwords to view or Remove / Remove all button to delete.

    Note: If you're not the only user then other users can also view your stored passwords. Use a master password to protect other user from viewing your saved password.

    Master Password Activation in Firefox

    1. Choose Tools from the menu and select Options.
    2. Click on Security tab and check the Use a master password check box.
    3. Then click on Change master password button, enter your new password.

    Tip: If you are accessing your facebook or email accounts using other computer don't choose Firefox to remember your password.

  11. Fing, the ultimate network toolkit

    Get in seconds a complete picture of the network you are in, including IP and MAC addresses, device vendors and ISP location. Born from the experience of the famous [email protected], Fing relies on a fast, network engine. Currently available as a Mobile App (Android and iOS) and Desktop command-line tool (Windows, OS X, Linux), Fing is free of charge and Ads. We intend to support more platforms in the future, including a long-awaited Desktop GUI.

    What does "Fing" mean? Originally, we thought that it would replace all your tools to Find and Ping devices, so we made up the term "To Fing", meaning both finding a device and verifying what's on it. We grew fond of the name* and now we hope you'd adopt it too.
