Firefox is an internet browser that can be downloaded and installed to your My Documents folder - which means it looks the same on every campus computer you use as well as at home if you customise it in the same way.
It is used by a large proportion of staff and students and can be customised by adding toolbars and add-ons.
The most commonly added features are the Google Toolbar, delicious, Twitterfox and Google Notebook.
NB Firefox is not supported by Helpdesk. See Firefox support for instructions and help.


Firefox on Campus


To use Firefox on campus you need to add a setting.

In Firefox go to Tools --> Options --> Advanced --> Network --> Settings

Select 'Automatic proxy configuration URL' and insert:
http://tafex.proxy.tas.gov.au/auto.pac

Then click 'OK' - you may need to close and re-open Firefox before it will work.
