Painlessly Remove Jimmy Wales from Wikipedia (Firefox)

2011-11-21_084509

We here at TinyHacker donate a tidy sum of money to various causes, projects and sharewares and would never dissuade anyone from doing the same. We draw the line at having to stare at Jimmy Wales’ mugshot on each and every Wikipedia page, year in, year out during fundraising season. Here’s how to remove him.

1. Install Stylish

2. Install Remove Wiki Banner from userstyles.org

In lieu of installing either, you can paste this code at the bottom of your UserChrome.css file:

@-moz-document

domain(wikipedia.org)

{

  #siteNotice {

	display: none !important;

  }

}

Popular multi-browser bookmark sync tool Xmarks is closing shop soon, here are their alternative recommendations. We’d buy them breakfast if we could, they’ve saved our bacon on more than one occasion. Foxmarks/Xmarks will be remembered as a success story, not a failure. The ultimate compliment is to have your extension incorporated into the browser, and Xmarks joins the ranks of session restore, spell check and many others. Below is the link to the announcement,
