Thank you. I've been using the fox for a couple of months now, and am still getting used to its abilities. One thing I downloaded today is a function that synchronizes my bookmarks when using multiple computers. I can't wait to get home and 'synchronize'.

GB, Thanks for the recommendation. The installation was as easy as could be and the interface is intuitive. I've been using IE so long it may take some getting used to but I vaguely remember more disorientation transitioning from Mosaic.
I miss the spellcheck button on the Google toolbar. Is the spellcheck you mentioned in firefox an extension? Any (other) extensions that experienced Firefox users recommend?

Nope it is actually integrated right into the browser. Now when you type something, in DC for instance, if you misspell a word it will underline it. The all you have to do is right click on that word and it will give you the options you can choose.

I downloaded it yesterday, i like the new additions to the browser. I also like the new look. Firefox>IE7, imo.

GB - I meant to tell you about the spell checker - it's awesome isn't it??? I uninstalled ICheck or whatever I had.

I still don't see what you were talking about about opening new tabs that you were explaining to SuzyQ3. If I right click on a tap it says open new tab - that's the only way I know to do it. I don't see anything at the top of my browser that says New Tab or New Window.

If you right click on your tool bar (where the URL address bar is) and click customize then you can add the New Tab and New Window buttons if you want kitchenelf.
