After yesterday's exciting installation of Firefox, i uninstalled it today. I was a bit frustrated this morning when i realized it had automatically reordered my bookmarks. Alphabetical is nice, but not when i'm used to a different setup. Finally, the delay on loading many pages was really bothering me. I couldn't just middle-click on a bunch of links and read them all. I had to wait in between each click for them to load. Even IE is better than that (though it's a right-click "open in new window" thing).
So, i installed Mozilla itself. It's not as sleek, and it didn't import everything automagically, and it did reorder my bookmarks. Oh well, i reordered them back, deleted the extra bookmark folders, and renamed the undeletable folder to be one of the imported folders.
The directional arrows and URL line cannot be consolidated into the menubar line, oh well. But, no freezing when pages load. That seems to mean everything to me.
And the password level bar. Very nice. Like a non-beeping seatbelt warning. Informative without being annoying. I'll bet the developers don't vote Democrat.
And my find dialog is back. The find bar on the bottom is a cute idea, but it agitates me. Every single application i use has a popup find window, and kudos to Microsoft (in Office) for not making it modal. In Firefox having it there at the bottom requires me to remind myself where it is. It does have the advantage of being out of the way, and truthfully, it's like emacs (which i am used to) but something about it just didn't feel right. Either way, Mozilla's find fialog is a welcome sight.
So, i guess i don't like Firefox after all. I hope Thunderbird doesn't have these lockup issues.
