  27. More Features
  28. FeaturesAwesome BarFind the sites you love in seconds (and withouthaving to remember clunky URLs).
  29. FeaturesStay in Sync When you set up Firefox Sync on your computer , all of your data and preferences (such as your bookmarks, history, passwords, open tabs and installed add-ons) gets stored securely on the Mozilla servers. Then you can connect other devices (a mobile phone for example) and they will be automatically synchronized, giving you access to all of your information no matter where you are.
  30. FeaturesOffline Browsing Take your computer offline and still have your information at your fingertips. Certain sites may allow applications—like your Web-based email—to stay with you at all times.
  31. FeaturesDo Not track Me Most major websites track their visitors behavior and then sell or provide that information to other companies (like advertisers). Firefox has a Do-not- track feature that lets you tell websites you dont want your browsing behavior tracked. When you turn on the Do-not-track feature, Firefox tells every website you visit (as well as their advertisers and other content providers) that you dont want your browsing behavior tracked
  32. Features Switch To Tab As you’re opening a new tab or typing in the AwesomeBar, Firefox will check to see if you already have that site open.If you do, you’ll be directed to the existing tab so you don’topen a duplicate.
  33. FeaturesTags Label a site with names or categories that are meaningful toyou. For example, you can labelboth and with the “news”tag. When you enter “news” into the location bar, both sites willbe shown as results. A single site can have multiple tags, andthere’s no limit to the number of tags you can create. You maynot remember the exact name of a site, but with a tag, you’ll beable to find it easily.
