Or you can go to FILE, and then NEW TAB or CTRL T (I think?) Anyway, I am a new firefox user and love it compared to IE, though I still have IE on my computer. I will be downloading Firefox v 2.0 tonight.

I don't think you need to go to STAPLES for it, you can download it on the web. Check GB's first post on this thread for the url. :-)

GB, I am liking FF2 a lot!!!! :-) I just learned how you can open FF with the same tabs you closed (logged off) with. :-) I've been using Netcaptor, which feeds off IE, and was considering going back to it because it wouldn't keep the tabs, and I had to re-enter them. :-) YES YES YES .. FF2 IS GREAT!!!!

I'm still getting used to the add-ons. I think I might like the bookmark feature, but I haven't played with it yet.

Do Ctrl-T for new tab and type in the new url. I think there is a way to set FF up to open a new tab when you click on a link, so you might be able to do it that way too.

<Kicks GB for giving me a new toy> Like I need more toys. ROFL just kidding GB!!!

I was beginning to feel too stupid to understand the the Firefox spell check. Apparently it doesn't work until right clicking the input field (the box you type into) and selecting "spell check this field" in the drop down list. I mention this in case anyone else is having the same problem.

By the way, GB ought to be getting some kind of commission on this.

Oh I do get a commission. Firefox pays me 25% what you pay to download it

I downloaded a new theme and now I can't see how to switch between themes. Am I missing something?

I have never used the themes myself Z, but try this if you have not already.

Go to tools then add-ons then themes. My guess is that you will be able to switch them in there.
