RE: [NTO] Firefox help
- Hi again Christine,
Re your 'rant'. I started messing with computers when storage meant punched
paper tape - spooling a job was exactly that! Arguments over 'was tape
better than cards?' I remember when the first "hard disc" arrived, it was
the size of a washing machine and everyone treated it with awe. Stored a few
MBs on about 5 discs the size of 78s.

This is the one that actually moved the tabs for me. Thank you.
I'm still wishing for a more obvious tab shape, which is splitting hairs,
and a keyboard command for a new window from a link (vs. a mouse command),
but this makes me happier.
What will happen to those of us who disdain mice when all the
original/older/experienced programmers die off? These kids who never
learned to keyboard will rule the day and productivity will slow, slow, slow
and frustration will rise among we older people until WE die off and the
younger people will know nothing differently.... Ah well. My own personal
Thanks for the help as always, guys!

I would recomend Tab Browser Preferences over Tab Browser Extensions, TBE
has long been known to be the source of trouble, while it is an effective
extension, it tries to do too much, and can effect firefox's preformance.
TBP is also more current, while TBE is a bit old, partly due to the simpler
nature of TBP which makes updates easier.

The Firefox release notes have some good information:
The profile folder is located on these versions of Windows, by default
(It can be specified at another location):
Windows 2000, XP Documents and Settings\<UserName>\Application
Windows NT WINNT\Profiles\<UserName>\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox
Windows 98, ME Windows\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox
There is a profiles.ini, and pluginreg.dat and the directory with a
"salted" name for each user in the Firefox directory as listed above.
When you re-install Firefox, just copy the profile folder to the desired
location, and you should be good to go.
