Clear Firefox's private data every time you exit:

- In Firefox, go to Tools
- Options
- Privacy tab
- Check "Always clear my private data when I close Firefox"

Now every time you exit, a little box pops up asking to clear your data. Very useful for...well, I bet you can figure out why on your own

You can arrange windows on your desktop to be side by side automatically. When one of the windows you want is open, right click the other one in the taskbar and select either Tile Vertically or Tile Horizontally.
