Firefox’s Tiles on startup/homepage

September 26, 2016

I had a client ask about this and it’s really not obvious how to set this up so did some research and I know I’m not going to remember this in… an hour from now… so here it is;

  • Set the startup (home) page to about:newtab
  • From there you can pin, delete, etc the tiles.

Problems with Chrome on OSX

May 12, 2016

I had a problem with a Mac that whenever I tried to run Chrome it would fail. I uninstalled and reinstalled but it would still fail.

The fix was to clear out his Chrome profile located here;

  • ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome

If you don’t care about the plugins/Bookmarks/etc then go ahead and either delete or rename the Chrome folder. If you do then you’ll need to poke about within that folder to save the info you want.
