new fox on the block
I still use SessionSaver though, so went over to extensionsmirror, which had a repackaged version. Kudos to Samir Boulema for that extremely useful resource, by the way.
Some notable changes (both good and bad):
The downloads window shortcut has changed from Ctrl-Y to Ctrl-J. Irritating
There is a RSS (live bookmarklet) feature in Firefox now, which appeared in the nightlies after 0.9.3 It goes hand in hand with a built in RSS Reader new in Thunderbird 0.8 Nifty
Find-as-you-type is disabled by default (that was the first thing I changed), but the new search function inside web pages is awesome. Appears as a small bar at the bottom of the page Nifty
I never install Flash on Firefox (and have no intention of doing so), and most Flash enabled pages now give a warning bar on top that says "Additional plugins to view all the media on the page". Rather nifty, but I wish there was a way to turn it off. Need to poke around about:config Hmm, interesting
The auto update and "install only from allowed sites" feature finally worked. I had to manually add "extensionsmirror" to the list of allowed XPI install sites. I've had a couple of spyware XPI install attempts, so this is most welcome Nifty
I've had a few unexplained page freezes (at least one required a full browser restart). Definitely the first I'm seeing that; and I put the earlier versions through a full workout too Ominous
The rendering engine is still a bit weird. Or is it just the broken HTML on Slashdot and a few other places. Oh well. Can't have everything Still holding out hope
Oh and The Oktoberfest kicks off this Saturday in Munich. Where the beer is served in maß and a good time is had by all.
