Mozilla 1.1

weather: sunny
outside: 23°C
mood: underwhelmed,
maybe merely

Bunch of doody-heads.

The release notes say:

  • The tab bar now has a button for creating new tabs.

    Liars. There is no button. Unless I don't know what a button looks like. What they do have is a menu item for "New Tab" when you right-click on the tab bar, but I thought that was always there...

    They also switched the "Open in New Tab" and "Open in New Window" options in the hyperlink right-click pop-up menu. "Open in New Tab" used to be the first one. So, I've been Pavlov'ed into picking the first one. *ungh*

    Well, at least they fixed the stupid Bookmark crap. In 1.0, when I moved a bookmark by dragging it into place, it somehow popped into one spot above the one I wanted. And there were various other strange things with bookmarks.

    There's drag'n'drop support now. I can drag an image from the browser to my graphics app. =)


    The Pinball theme I was using had the tab bar hardcoded, so there was no button until I uninstalled and re-installed the theme. The Modern them has it though. I think CTRL-T to create a new tab is easier anyway.

    The button only exists in some themes - some hardcoded the "look" and so until their author updates them, no button. Try the modern theme that ships with it, I think.

    Ah, I see. I was using Pinball. Thanks =)

    My favorite new-tab trick

    My new favorite functionality is Gestures. Ok, it's a plugin, but now that I'm used to them, it's lovely. I open a new tab just by gesturing up. If I do it over a link, I get that link in a new tab, otherwise a blank new tab. I open a list of links each in a new tab with right-up(over the links)-left.

    Now if only my mouse had a wheel on it, I'd be happy.

    (grr, stupid typos - I type faster than my computer can comprehend.)
