My firefox is behaving strangely today. The favicons in the Bookmarks toolbar are switching by themselves! I recreated the bookmarks and record a video to show you what I mean. The video is very blur. If you cannot see, I will try to explain. Initially I have my bookmark icons in the following order: friendster, facebook, google. When I start firefox, my laptop seems loading a heavy process (the harddisk LED is blinking so fast). At the end, the order turned out to be facebook, google, google. I hope the bug will be fixed soon or I will report this problem using Launchpad. I think there is a memory leak in Firefox or my Ubuntu is infected by virus?

Update (25 Aug 2010):

Restoring bookmarks is not a solution. Just now I was wondering what is the “Desktop Couch Scratch” folder in the Organize Bookmarks. After google search, i guess the bug is related to Ubuntu One bookmark sychronization. I hope by uncheck the bookmark in Ubuntu One settings can eliminate this issue.

I was wrong again. Unchecking the bookmark for Ubuntu One settings doesn’t help either. So I go to Firefox menu Tools -> Add-ons and click the Disable button for Bindwood.

Microsoft just announced  a new lightweight web development IDE call WebMatrix. It is a good news for web developer who started to develop website or web application using ASP.Net. It includes IIS Developer Express (a development Web server), ASP.NET (a Web framework), and SQL Server Compact (an embedded database). The feature that most interested me is the ability to start developing from popular open source application such as Joomla, WordPress or Drupal. Microsoft also enable developer to install PHP in Windows and IIS through an easy installer call Web Platform Installer (Web PI). However, it seems MS is trying to promote its own SQL Server instead of using MySQL or other database system. For me, I already decided to switch my OS and development to Linux and using all open source tools. It is left to you to decide.
