More Firefox Updates on the Way
According to an article at Mozillazine, the most recent release, version 1.0.5, has caused quite a few problems with Firefox's many extensions -- add-ons that make the browser more fun, useful and productive. Some of the more common problems with the latest version are discussed in this thread at the Firefox user forums.
So if you've been having trouble with any extensions, or even having difficulty getting Firefox to start up, help is on the way: Mozilla says it is likely a new version will be available later this week.
By the way, whenever I write about Firefox, invariably I get e-mails or comments from people asking how to tweak this or that feature in the browser. I'd be happy to do a series of posts about tweaking the browser to your liking, because doing so may not be the easiest task for the average Web user -- or at least for anyone who isn't familiar with editing style sheets, or doesn't know how to find and manipulate settings. So if you have any requests, send them along, either via the comments feature or by sending me an e-mail. I'll pick a few of the most popular requests and get to work.
Incidentally, my favorite extensions are Clone Window -- which opens an exact copy of the Web page you're viewing whenever you hit Ctrl+N on the keyboard; ForecastFox, which places little unobtrusive icons on the toolbar to display the local weather forecast; and FoxyTunes, which lets you control a variety of music players from within the browser.
