Greasemonkey How To Bypass Firefox 4.0 Beta’s Incompatible Add-on Error and Install Extensions Anyway The latest Firefox Beta is rather awesome, with tabs on top, and a new menu that looks like an awful lot like Opera. It’s all very slick, until you try and install your favorite extensions that haven’t updated yet. Here’s how to force them to work. Here’s the error message we’re talking about: Side note: want to test the new beta out for yourself? Open up the about:config page, and then right-click anywhere and choose New –> Boolean. You’ll get a popup menu, at which point you’ll want to use one of the two values as the preference name, depending on the version you’re using: 4.0 Beta: extensions.checkCompatibility.4.0b4.0 Release: extensions.checkCompatibility.4.0 Then set the value to false. At this point your extensions should install just fine… Important Note: At the moment of the writing of this article, Greasemonkey is really actually incompatible with Firefox 4.0 beta, and continually opens up the homepage with a never-ending list of tabs.

Microformats SkipScreen Éradiquer la poussière d'un MacBook ou MacBook Pro en moins de 10 minutes ! Bien entretenir son matériel, c'est limiter les risques de vieillissement prématurés et lui assurer une longue vie. Nettoyage du MacBook Blanc Unibody C2D (2009 et 2010) Le concept "Unibody" ayant été appliqué au MacBook Blanc (commercialisé fin 2009), la conception est assez similaire (lire : MacBook Blanc Unibody (2009-2010) C2D), il suffit de procéder comme pour le MacBook Pro 13" C2D 2.4 GHz de notre "Pas à pas", seule différence : la nécessité de déconnecter la nappe SATA du lecteur optique afin de dégager le ventilateur, elle passe au dessus. Pour accéder au bloc de ventilation, il est impératif de déconnecter la nappe SATA du SuperDrive et de dévisser ensuite les trois vis Cruciforme (cerclées de vert). Ne pas oublier de débrancher l'alimentation du ventilateur, opération très similaire étant donné qu'il s'agit d'un connecteur de surface comme sur les actuels MacBook Pro.

Comment augmenter l'autonomie de la batterie Constat L'ennemi de tout ordinateur portable, c'est la chaleur qu'il produit. Trois composants principaux de votre ordinateur portable génèrent de la chaleur: 1. Sur un MacBook, un MacBook Pro ou n'importe quel PC, les fabricants utilisent généralement des disques durs dont la fréquence de rotation est inférieure aux disques durs des ordinateurs de bureau. Exemple: Les MacBook Pro embarquent des disques durs ayant une rotation de 5400 tr/mn, alors que les iMac et les Mac Pro embarquent des disques durs ayant une rotation de 7200tr/mn. La raison est simple: Un disque dur tourne quasiment en permanence et comme tout matériel électronique cela sollicite la batterie et l'énergie produite génère de la chaleur. En abaissant le taux de rotation, on diminue la chaleur produite par le mouvement. C'est l'une des raisons pour lesquelles on voit se développer de nouveaux supports de stockage, qui ne sont plus des disques, mais de la mémoire flash. 2. 3. 1. 2. 3.
