PageRank not Working – Here’s a Fix

I reinstalled my Google Toolbar in Firefox recently to check out some of the newer features that might impact SEO and brand reputation (such as Google Sidewiki). Unfortunately doing so caused the PageRank feature of the toolbar to stop working. Reinstalling and restarting didn’t help but here’s what did (courtesy of this post):

  1. Enter “about:config” into Firefox’s Address Bar.
  2. Right-click on any item in the list of preference names, select “New,” then click “Boolean.”
  3. Enter “google.toolbar.firstrun.done” as the new preference name, then click “OK.”
  4. Select “True,” then click “OK.”

Now my only problem is finding pages which actually have something written about them in Sidewiki. So far the only page I’ve seen with comments was the Sidewiki page itself… :)

Must-have for multiple Gmail attachments – dragdropupload

A lot of you probably already know about this, but if you ever want to do multiple file uploads in Firefox then this Firefox Add On / Extension is for you:


This Add-On lets you drag a bunch of files from your computer and drop them on a standard file input upload box. If the web site has been built a particular way to allow for multiple upload boxes generated dynamically (such as Gmail), dragging a bunch of files onto the single upload box will automatically generate a whole heap of individual upload boxes. Very neat! :)

This is mega handy when you want to send a whole bunch of pictures to someone via Gmail.
