While the Firefox web browser is one of the most versatile when it comes to customizations, there are still a few areas that cannot be changed directly through the web browser's options or the about:config advanced configuration screen.
Mar Mod is a free Firefox add-on that can be described as an advanced tweaker for Firefox. The add-on can be used to change core features of the browser effortlessly.
Once it has been installed and the browser restarted, you will notice differences at once. Unlike other add-ons that tweak Firefox, it applies some of its tweaks right away.
You will for instance notice that the Firefox menu bar button has been modified and moved to the tab bar, or that the add-on manager is now using less height for each listing so that more add-ons are displayed on the screen at any time.
When you open the add-on options you will notice the tabbed interface that divides all tweaks into groups for easier access.
Lets take a look at each group of tweaking options in detail:
Some of the options that are enabled by default may irritate you. I'm for instance using a classic compact menu in Firefox, and the Firefox tweaker added the new Firefox single button menu to the tab bar despite of that.
You may need to change some tweaks in this regard to restore your original settings and preferences. This should not take longer than a few minutes tops though.
Mar Mod for Firefox is definitely an interesting add-on. Firefox users who want to modify several of the listed settings can download and install the Firefox tweaker directly from the Mozilla Add-on repository.
