A while back, I got fed up with the memory leaks of Safari, but found Firefox to be a bit too poky for everyday browsing. Also, I can’t even find words to describe my seething hatred of Firefox’s insistence on keeping a blank window open when I close the last tab in said window.
So I started using Camino as my default surfing browser. Firefox is still my web development environment, of course; I just seethe for a moment when a blank window occurs and then keep going. Life in Camino has been a mostly positive experience, but there are a few things that really irk me. I’m wondering if the (Lazy)web can help me fix them. To wit:
The form autofill routines latched on to some early mistakes of mine, and now just will not let go (for example, my name gets filled into the e-mail field and vice versa when commenting on WordPress blogs). I want to fix this. Where do I find that information?
Safari has an autofill feature I really like, which is that it remembers every input ever made for a given field on a given page, and uses them for autocompletion. For example, it remembers every blog post title I’ve ever input through it, which helps me avoid duplicates. Is there a way to get or add something similar for Camino?
Is there a way to turn off all favicons, including the default green diagonal bookmark, in the Bookmarks bar, but leave them in the Bookmarks menu? All I can find is
browser.chrome.favicons, which seems to kill all favicons everywhere, and doesn’t seem to turn off the green guys (unless I did something wrong).
Camino hasn’t been all pain, certainly. I absolutely love its state restoration feature, for one. And once I got into
about:config and flipped a few settings (such as disabling “Delete” as a back button equivalent), and ran the shell command to get inline URL autocompletion (as documented most of the way down this “Hidden Preferences” page), I was much more satisfied with my Camino experience. I’d just like to get it the rest of the way there, if I can.
