I'm trying to find a good looking font for Firefox. It would be a shame to chuck such a nice browser just because the screen looks like c**p.

Thanks, varnuns. I'll do that. Which would you recommend for a person coming from EI7 (I've tried the ie/Vista looking one; didn't like it).

Yep. I think that maybe this is the one that I have been looking for. I'll try it out for a day or so and let you know.

Thanks.

I would also recommend you do a search for these on the firefox addons site:

Adblock Plus - Remove Ads from sites
ColorfulTabs - Gives color for each pagetab, pretty :)
Fission - Progress bar in address bar.
Keyconfig - Rebind keys.
Gmail Space - Use gmail as FTP
IE Tab - To load in explorer engine instead, VERY usefull
NoScript - Pure genius.
Statusbar Clock - Nice to have clock when viewing fullscreen.
Sage - Rss Feed (not important)
Hyperwords - Lots more options, like the most usefull copy txt on select.

Those would be the most important ones, also remember you can type in about:config in the address bar to further tweak it. Let me know if you found any of these usefull :)

I've been using that one - Truly great!
plus
StatusBarEx - I feel much better about the MB/phisical number that it gives, over Task Manager's.
PDF Download- Another good one.

I look forward to trying these.

I take it ALL back! Firefox is awesome! My system was screwed up, not the software. There is an explanation of the problem here.

Now if we could just resolve this copy-between-code-tags-form-the-page issue, I'd be really happy.
