    Wink HOWTO: Make Firefox interact with unity bar

    It is quite simple but for firefox funs it will be useful!

    STEPS:


    1) Make a backup (anywhere handy) of the file /usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop
    2) Extract the attached archive and replace the file
    /usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop with the generated file (named firefox.desktop as well)
    3) 'Repin' firefox(uncheck "Keep in launcher", launch firefox, check "Keep in launcher") OR relogin OR restart unity (unity --replace)
    4) Enjoy the new firefox feature you added by right clicking on the launcher's firefox icon:


    Note that you can also add your own features you would like to by editing the .desktop file and seeing the firefox's available arguments by giving 'man firefox' in a terminal, as the whole thing is quite simple

    Enjoy

    Interesting. Thanks for sharing.

    I don't use Unity, but this will definitely please a lot of users.
