You should see something like this: localhost user

Now, edit to: localhost user user

(Replace “user” with your hostname).
Save and exit the file.

Now your applications launch should improve.
Currently There are two bugs filed against this you can check here and here .

Set Your Firefox Homepage to Multiple Tabs

With this tiny Firefox feature, you will be able to set your default homepage to multiple pages which will open in different tabs. All you have to do is add this symbol, “|”, in between your websites. This is how it should look…
You can add as many or as little number of sites as you would like.

This will also go into effect whenever you hit the home button on your browser. Some of you might have already known about this, but it’s news to me.

Local DNS Cache for Faster Browsing

The package we will be using for caching nameserver lookups is called dnsmasq. So first, install it using:

$ sudo apt-get install dnsmasq
  1. Go System -> Administration -> Networking
  2. Click the DNS tab
  3. Press the Add button and type and press enter
  4. Click on a different entry so that isn’t highlighted and then click and drag to the top of the list
  5. Press OK and you’re done! :-)
