The neat thing is that you can open links in new tabs by middle-clicking them (or ctrl+clicking them; you can also middle-click bookmarks or even the back and forward buttons to open things in new tabs).

So you can visit a forum and middle-click all the topics that interest you and have them all load in the background while you get to them one at a time. It also simplifies window management since you can resize, minimize, whatever a single window instead of all of them. It really grows on you once you get used to it.

About the textboxes: Firefox 1.5 has a new feature where you can create domain-specific style rules. Go to C:\Documents and Settings\<your user name>\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\profiles\<random string>.default\chrome\ and create a file called usercontent.css. Then you can add something like...
Code:
@-moz-document domain(forum.interference.com) {
	textarea
	{height: 20em; width: 50em;}
}
...which'll make your text boxes pretty big.
GAH! It didn't work. My paths don't go in that order. I don't have Application Data coming up in mine.

Poo!

Hey about the text box size, how do you create a file? Or you mean a folder? for usercontent.css? And how do you add the code? :lost:

I haven't tried it but I think you need to go to the directory that typhoon specified and create an empty text file in, for instance, notepad called usercontent.css, copy/paste the code that typhoon wrote into this file and save it in this directory.

Yeah, it's hidden by default. Try typing it into the address bar or showing hidden files in Tools|Folder Options|View.

Should work after you restart Firefox.

Nope.


Here's what I got. I really just want to make the box wider. Not necessarily taller.

Maybe the file should be userContent.css?

Windows shouldn't be case-sensitive, but Unix/Linux is. Not sure how Mozilla handles this in Windows.

I used Firefox with my old laptop that ran Windows. I use Safari now with my iBook.
I have been thinking about putting Firefox on here.

Hmm.

Just tried it. It worked fine for me, too (thanks typhoon )

Sicy, are you sure you copy/pasted the entire code? Including the little bracket at the end?
