Now Check out these little items that you most likely were not aware that they even existed. :-)If you all thought firefox was fast before, which it is, try these out.Hit CTRL T to open a new TABThen type about:config in the address bar and hit enter.Now look for the following 3 Items in the long list, and when you find each one, double left click on each and in the value box place the following.network.http.pipelining Value truenetwork.http.proxy.pipelining Value truenetwork.http.pipelining.maxrequests Value 100After that, Right click somewhere on the page, and choose:NewInteger, and type this in:nglayout.initialpaint.delay Then enter value as 0Great for Broadband Connections.Tips Originally from:http://www.mozilla.org/support/firefox/tips#oth_rendering***********************************Let your computer read back to you.***********************************Now, how about letting your computer read that next article for you instead of you. Or read out a post like this one.Get FoxyVoice here:http://foxyvoice.kenche.info/It is an Extension for Firefox and you must have the MS Speech Recogntion SDK Installed.http://www.microsoft.com/speech/download/sdk51/Once you install the extension, close your browser, and restart it. Look in the bottom right hand corner of the Firefox Status bar. You will see a little smily, Highlight some text and left click, and it reads back what is highlighted. It even works when you go to a different Tab. Talk About Multitasking. :-)By The way, both of these are 100% FREE.Enjoy the Tips and The Talk.IE....

Thank's for the info! I have one problem since going to Mozilla, I can't bookmark a specific Avsim forum, It always comes up as Avsim main page.

Try opening up the link to that forum in a new tab or window (that way the nav bar is not present at the top) and try bookmarking that way.Or you can try right clicking on the link to the forum and chosing 'bookmark' or some similar wording.
