  • Sometime you need to run firefox from the command just to rectify something about it.Means,if some of the addon broke you firefox setting or theme broke your ff setting then fall back to commandline i.e shell and type the mentioned command. It will open up an information box with few option along with the checkbox besides them(means you can select them) to start the web browser in safe mode.Besically deactivating all the addon and theme,except the default one.Once you are done/rectified thing ..close that session and reopen the browser normally.It should work.

Check These Out

Regex to remove HTML-Tags from a file
This regular expression removes all HTML-Tags from the file.

Include a remote file (in vim)
Like vim scp://yourhost//your/file but in vim cmds.

backup local MySQL database into a folder and removes older then 5 days backups

Check your unread Gmail from the command line

Create a video screencast of any x11 window, with audio
The script gets the dimensions and position of a window and calls ffmpeg to record audio and video of that window. It saves it to a file named output.mkv

LIST FILENAMES OF FILES CREATED TODAY IN CURRENT DIRECTORY
This version eliminates the grep before the awk, which is always good. It works for GNU core utils and ensures that the date output of ls matches the format in the pattern match, regardless of locale, etc. On BSD-based systems, you can easily eliminate both the grep and the awk: find . -maxdepth 1 -Btime -$(date +%kh%lm) -type f

Bash prompt with user name, host, history number, current dir and just a touch of color
I put that line in my .bash_profile (OS X) and .bashrc (Linux). Here is a summary of what the \char means: n=new line, u=user name, h=host, !=history number, w=current work directory The \[\e[32m\] sequence set the text to bright green and \[\e[0m\] returns to normal color. For more information on what you can set in your bash prompt, google 'bash prompt'

Shell function to create a directory named with the current date, in the format YYYYMMDD.
Creates a directory named with the current date, in the format YYYYMMDD. If you give it a directory name as an argument, it will create the new directory inside the specified directory. This is an alternative to command #1993.
