Screwing around with Firefox’s about:home search

So after finally getting it the Nightly firefox built I of course went around looking for something easy to change that I understood but would also ALWAYS be visible/accessible.

After searching around for a bit I found the code that affects Firefox’s about:home page. What I did was change the function that would launch a Google search based on what was entered in the textfield from dynamic (so whatever the user entered) to a static value.

I currently have it set to always query “Seneca College” rather than whatever the user enters.

Screwing with about:home search

Let’s see. How about we try searching for Firefox…..

Wait what?

Hey wait a minute……

That’s all for tonight folks. My CPU is complaining about being taxed so much for the last 3 hours so it’s time to give it a break.
