I’m giving up on firefox on windows for now. It can just crash sitting there doing nothing. Yes, it’s probably Windows’ fault, but the aggravation is all mine. Unfortunately, safari is a dog’s breakfast on windows, but what can you do?
At least I’m not alone …
Make Link :: Firefox Add-ons copies the current page as a link. Just like that.
I’m trying to make Firefox on Windows XP like Firefox with the GrApple theme on OS X. I don’t have to have it look the same, just compress all the bookmarks in the toolbar into the width of the screen.
This is how I want the bookmarks toolbar to look:
And this is how it looks right now on Windows:
I can find any number of links about only showing the favicon, but none about turning it off to save space. Aargh!
I (heart) Adblock Plus: and to think it’s bad for the internet …
I see that my company’s Outlook Web Access does much niftier things on IE than on FireFox:

But in true MS dunderhead fashion, when you quit the mail client, it clears all your cookies — including the ones of sessions on other sites. Microsoft, this isn’t DOS; people multitask these days …
Ah, New Tab Homepage brings happiness to this Firefox user. I rather got to like the lightweight Epiphany browser during my mini-itx odyssey. When you opened a new browser tab in Epiphany, it loaded your home page. The supposedly more advance Firefox never did this.
New Tab Homepage fixes this, and doesn’t add any other tab-related cruft that I couldn’t use.
Firefox‘s tabbed browsing really irks me sometimes. I was most of the way through composing a pithy (no, I don’t have a lisp) entry, when I try to close an unwanted tab with the [X] icon. Kaboom! My entry’s gone. Seems I closed the wrong tab.
With great power comes great confusability, I suppose.
If you install the Aria Download Manager and the FlashGot Firefox Extension, you now have a painless way of managing multiple downloads. It makes an even better linux allofmp3 downloader than the previous suggestion.
From October 31, 2004 to November 6, 2004, more than a third of my readers were using Mozilla. Less than a year ago, it was about 10%. The real common sense revolution rolls on!
