Enable URL autofill in Firefox

A little thing that bugs me about Firefox is that when you start typing an URL in the address bar there is no autofill:

However, Mozilla have again predicted that I and other people will whine about that and have actually added this feature, but have disabled it by default. In this short tutorial we will show you how to enable it.
First, open Firefox:

In the address bar enter about:config:

Hit Enter. Firefox will warn you to be careful, as you are about to open the configurations to your browser:

Click the I’ll be careful, I promise! button. The configuration page will open:

In the Filter textbox enter autofill:

Here you can see the browser.urlbar.autoFill setting. It has the value false. Simply double-click on the row it is to change it to true:

Close the window and try to type an address in the address bar:

Default file type in Windows 7

This tutorial will show you how to change the default program for a file type in Windows 7.

Quite often you have more than one application that can open a certain file type. For example most of the media types can be opened by most of the media players. Most of the times when you install new software Windows associates all the file types that can be opened with the new piece of software with it. And most of the times we don’t want that. We will show you how to change the default program for a given file type.
In our example we will use a video file (.wmv to be specifically) which by default is opened with Windows Media Player.

How to count unique records with sql

In tis tutorial we will show you some very basic SQL queries for extracting the exact information that we need from our database.

For our tutorial I have used a simple table with three fields over MySQL database server.

How to paste selected text in Konsole with Shift+Ins

In this tutorial I will demonstrate you how to make Shift+Ins combination behave the same way as it does in Gnome terminal when using Konsole. I myself have been a gnome user for the last 5 or more years. I do not know why exactly but Gnome was pretty much all that I needed plus all menus, buttons and fonts were looking like one sold piece of art. However as any Linux Desktop user I was thrilled to try the new features that KDE 4 could offer. KDE 4.0 sucked, KDE 4.1 sucked too, KDE 4.2 was ok and now KDE 4.3 rocks.
