Google Talk Flash App.

A pretty handy feature that I found several months ago is the GoogleTalk flash app.  It connects to GoogleTalk just like their main installable client.  However, the flash version is definitely more portable.

If you would like to open this in your FireFox sidebar, open the client link from above and add a bookmark. Right click that new bookmark and go to it’s properties.  Select the “Load this bookmark in sidebar” check box at the bottom.  Click ok and then open the link.

FireFox Addon:WebMail Notifier

WebmailNotifierAwesome little Firefox Addon. WebMail Notifier is a simple little addon that allows you to setup many web accounts for automatic notification if you get an email or message in one of those accounts. It has an “add script” feature that can be used to create custom account notifications or select from the currently available list. Currently I set mine up to monitor my Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo accounts as well as Adsense, Facebook, and LinkedIn.

Firefox:Disable Virus Scan on Download

Firefox PortableWhen Firefox finishes downloading items, by default it does a virus scan. This can can cause FF to hang for a bit as well as prevent you from accessing the file until the scan is done. If you have antivirus software installed on your system, it will already prevent any viral activity via it’s real-time scan.

You can disable this feature by typing about:config in the address bar, and then filtering on browser.download.manager.scanWhenDone. Double click this line to set the value to false.
