Hi! This is Mooquackwooftweetmeow, a collection of stuff by Greg K Nicholson.
I'm often amazed by how many screenshots of Firefox include a critical update icon. A red disc in the top-right of the browser window means there is a critical update to Firefox available and that you should upgrade immediately.
I was going to entitle this entry Mozillanea but realised that was intensely naff.
Qute, Firefox's old default theme (and Thunderbird's soon-to-be-retired default theme) doesn't have borders on its toolbars (at least in the latest Firefox version; see also the Qute FAQ). Winstripe, the new default theme, does. Personally, I prefer no-borders - it looks cleaner.
Firefox's New Tab button looks like a slice of toast sitting in a toaster - with an overlaid plus symbol, of course.
I've been using Winstripe for a couple of hours now, and I'm surprised to report that it's passable. Crazy, eh?
Since the demise of the free FeedDemon betas, I'd been using Sharpreader or Wildgrape NewsDesk (depending on what mood I was in) to read RSS feeds. Neither was perfect, but I'd settled on Sharpreader, despite the oh-so-slow notification pop-ups (this on a 2.5GHz machine...). But today I thought I'd give the RSS Reader Panel for Firefox (http://texturizer.net/firefox/extensions/#rssreaderpanel) another try. Guess what? It's pretty good. The Open In Contents Area option now produces a spiffy-looking display, with the option of customising the CSS used (so you can't complain even if you don't like it).
Here's me thinking Internet Explorer wouldn't display this feed properly! Obviously, it doesn't... but it at least has a go at mangling it, leaving this text (and this) legible. You do get a nice piece of HTML above the title, however.
