    Just installed Firefox 0.8 for a test spin, and have some
    quick comments and observations for the good of the order.

    1) I realize this is a work in progress. Keep up the good work!

    2) Dial-on-demand works! Nice to have this back after several
    problematic previous versions of NetScape. Remains to be
    seen if it will continue to work for any length of time, and
    I don't see any menu to set these options, so I am still a
    little concerned.

    3) Downloads|File Types needs work. There is no "add" button,
    and many common file types are noticably missing from the list.

    4) I can't find anywhere to set the bookmark path. Previous
    versions of NetScape that I am familiar with had a .ini
    file that made things easy.

    I'm mostly happy with it, but there doesn't seem to be any "save image"
    option. :(

    What I'd really like to see is the same kind of image-handling konqueror
    uses. If you disable images and a web page has images, then a "load
    images" icon appears on the toolbar. You can click that to load all
    images on a page, or you can rightclick on an empty image box and select
    "view image" to download just that one image.

    What all this means is that I can surf in snappy text mode, yet if
    something looks like it might be interesting I can easily view all
    images or just one particular one without having to navigate a
    preferences menu.

    The other thing I'd like to see is an option to automatically mail-bomb
    Macromedia every time I get another one of those annoying "do you want
    to install Flash" dialogs!

    Those are example file paths. You can point it at any file you want.
    Check out for finding your
    profiles, then modify the path to point at the bookmarks.html file that
    you want to use.

    It just takes a bit of practice, but it's worth it. Good luck, Aron

  6. Be sure you have Windows Explorer set to show hidden files.
