UI Tweaker lets you change how things work, like the google search, can be only the icon untill mouse over, and things like that, check it out. Tab preview alows you to see what u have on one tab with a mouse over.

I tried:

very nice! especially FireFTP.

I only have one question for Bman, when I enter lets say ftp://192.168.0.150 (local FTP server). It prompts for a username and password, I enter my login, it goes to FireFTP but then tries to login as anonymous, can't it use the login I just provided? That would make this perfect!

I stoped using the program, cause I don't need it anymore. There should be an option in the settings for it, to change what it uses automaticly.

I think the web developer extension and the netcraft anti phishing ones are pretty impressive

That's kinda cool, but you can't remove any of the options, plus I don't really need it. Thanks, still cool

Ya, I wish you could hide it. The prefbar extension can be hidden by pressing F8 or under Views. A hide feature for Web Developer would make it much better.

I still have it linked just in case.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
