Firefox 1.0 on my Laptop

Again the upgrade was pretty straight forward.

Though it did complain about update difficulties for TripleSelect. Though it previous version wasn't disabled. And, all my Firefox installs have it.

But, I found an update and installed that.

I depend on TripleSelect to make up for the loss of the IE text selection 'feature', to cut and paste numbers from my 401k providers website into MSMoney. It doesn't use a table to render the table of numbers, so have to use text selection. And MSMoney doesn't like it if numbers are supplied without digits in front of decimal point or containing whitespace on the end....

The only other quirk about Firefox that didn't seem to get fixed in 1.0 is the Window title bar only shows the last updated tab. Closing the tab(s) or switching to other tabs (that have finished loading) won't update the title. Makes it hard to figure out what I'm looking at, especially when reading message forums from last read point. The message subject is either in the title bar or at the top of the page...neither of which are visible due to this quirk.

At least it works on Linux (wonder how those upgrades will go). Of course, my Linux box is headless at the moment, because I'm still waiting for the replacement of my Dell 1800FP.

No feedback yet

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
