Adding search engines

Using Liferea as RSS reader
This does not work for now but the manipulation should be:
- apt-get install xulrunner-1.9-gnome-support
- Firefox -> Edit -> Preferences -> Applications -> Web Feed = Other -> /usr/bin/liferea-add-feed
As seen on some bugreports, nothing happens and the liferea-add-feed script is even not called
Anonimizing of your searches using BlackBoxSearch and CustomizeGoogle
For simple anonimization through a proxy use BlackBoxSearch. Mainly BlackBoxSearch anonimizes your searches by hiding your IP. Here is a greasemonkey script that makes the use of BlackBoxSearch automatic.
To obtain a complete solution you should regularly erase your favorite search engine cookies. If you are using Firefox and Google, this can be done automatically through the CustomizeGoogle extension. To do this you have to enable the privacy protection options of it.

Dictionaries for Thunderbird
- Don't try to install them as xpi, it won't work under Debian, instead, install the proper myspell package:

- That's all!
- Don't worry if you get twice the dictionaries in Thunderbird, these are just aliases created by myspell.
Themes for Thunderbird
For those who develop websites and need interoperability with e.g. the awfully broken CSS interpreter of IE, you can install IE under linux with those scripts and wine:
