First up, There’s a new tutorial, How to Change Firefox’s Default Search Engine, that shows how to change Firefox’s default search from Google to Ask. It’s an easy to do mod that not only puts Ask where Google was, but also allows you to incorporate more search engines as well if you like.
On an unrelated note, I’ve been having trouble with digg.com lately. the last couple days or so my profile page doesn’t load all the way. The right sidebar loads, but the recent activity and recent shouts part of the page doesn’t load. It’s weird because I can load anyone else’s profile without a problem. I also had my wife try loading my profile and she had the same problem. So I know it’s not my browser… and I’ve re-booted a couple times since this happened so I’m also pretty sure it’s not my connection either.
