David McRitchie, my main Firefox web page begins with


Another way of viewing my website is through


My System: Firefox 2.0.0.8 using about 110 enabled extensions, Dell Inspiron 1521 (laptop) with pre installed Windows Vista Basic Home (32 bit), hardware: AMD Turin 64 X2 Mobil Technology TL-50, 1.87 GB RAM, ATI Radeon XL270, Hard drive is 160 GB (8GB reserved), Windows NTSF files. laptop has a 15" screen (13" x 8")

Additional Firefox pages on my website:

Extensions

More information on Extensions than could be included on my home page (I use these extensions)


Problems and Pet Peeves

  • Addons_2007 New Format major problems (Bug: 372841) very little improvement at AMO (addons.mozilla.org), even if I personally can do searches with Google.
  • Profile not readily available for users, makes it difficult to help others and wastes tens of thousands of hours in the Firefox community (finding/helping/documenting).
  • Bloated extensions or extensions where a simple user configuration change would have sufficed Options (Tools menu), about:config, userContent.css, userContent.css, user.js)
  • Inability to lock a Tab (Bug: 392313) without an extension such as "PermaTabs" (conflicts with "Customize Google") or with very questionable "TMP" (bloated, poor - reversed naming usage). Strange to have an outright rejection as Opera has some of what is wanted. Very difficult to work with validating a lot of links when invoking a link can hide the page you are working on then get it refreshed, so you have to start all over again.
