Addendum to my vent of FF5. I just got my colorful tabs back! They installed it.

The colorful tabs still won't keep a color for the same site, though, but at least I can read them.

If they would just fix that, my Favorites, and be able to access Yahoo, I'd be happy.

Bookmarks works, but doesn't give me the option of putting things where I want on my list. It's strictly alphabetical.

Having to use IE for Yahoo stinks. There is no ad blocker.

My immediate thought was "10 pounds of potatoes is the amount needed for a big patch of perogies..." does this mean I'd get a dunce cap too?

Probably, if you were sitting next to me in class... and said it out loud.

You can modify your bookmarks to have any titles you want and sort them alphabetically. You can also create folders in the bookmarks to group similar links. For example, I have a folder for recipe sites.

I have no issue accessing Yahoo via FF. It may be a problem specific to your computer.

Take measurements and you'll see a difference. It will make you feel better when the scale numbers don't move. I've been running long distances for a while now and haven't lost a single pound (or inch for that matter). So frustrating.

I went for a long time without loosing, and found that at that time I needed to change the exercise. If you are running, try adding in a bike ride a week or playing soccer twice a week, etc. It is like our bodies need some sort of jump start again! I'm not sure why it works, but it does.

It's the magic of the human body...do you know that if you get dehydrated enough, your thirst mechanism fails and you can't tell you are thirsty. So if you should be thirsty...and you don't want to drink...you are already dehydrated and dangerously close to heat stroke. Lots and lots of water...besides nurses are not happy unless you are running to the bathroom all day!
