Well after much delay I finally got around to upgrading to the latest version of Firefox, 2 point oh, early Tues morning. I'm pretty pleased so far. I miss some of the features of Tab Mix Plus, but that's about it really. Thanks to Lifehacker I was able to get it up and running all tweaked out on only 2 hours, which was good cause it was 4am when I started, haha!
Here's what I did. First, of course, I installed FF2 (duh). Next I tweaked the about:config file. Make sure you read through all the comments as well as there are additional tips as well as corrections and additions. Next I streamlined my interface. Again, read the comments too! Reading through these two guides also led me to the following three awesome interface extensions
- Searchbar Autosizer - keep that search bar from wasting space
- Stop-or-Reload Button - instead of having a Stop and Reload button, the button you get depends on whether the page is loaded or in the process of loading. Genius!
- Tiny Menu - Consolidates the menu bar into a single drop-down
All in all I'm quite happy. Next project is seeing if I can make myself switch from Outlook to Thunderbird...
