Quickly Access Your History in Mobile Firefox For Android

Our own Whitson Gordon shares this tip for quickly accessing your Mobile Firefox history:

Tap and hold the Back button in Mobile Firefox for Android to pop up your browsing history. This also works in the stock browser on my Galaxy Nexus, but doesn’t seem to work in Chrome or Dolphin. If you’re using a different browser, give it a try!

Use Facebook’s Edit History as a Spoiler Tag

Josh shares a clever use for Facebook’s Edit History feature:

I was discussing the “Day of the Doctor” special with a friend on Facebook and realised my comment might have given away too much about the plot. So I edited the post and replaced it with a slightly less spoiler-filled comment.

Then I realised you can click on the Edited link to see Edit History of any comment or post. I figured this would be a perfect way to put “spoiler tags” on a Facebook post. Just type what you want to say, then edit the post to replace the text with “View Edit History for Spoilers” or something similar.

Change the Question to Change the Habit

Scout shares a great tip for changing habits:

This is a short video I put together about changing habits by changing the question you are asking yourself. The idea is to engage your unconscious mind to find the solution instead of reinforcing the problem.
