The Mozilla/Firefox/Thunderbird discussion (Part 3)

hmm.. i have two windows open with 17 total tabs open.. only just over 100MB total for Firefox 3 (beta 4)
I haven't put FF3 on my new system yet.

Still working on getting all my old saved games transferred :)
Since FF 3.0 was released, one of my favorite addons was the "minimize to tray"

it does not seem to be supported anymore at least for now or never could find a straight answer. I was searching Google and found a simple work around to make it work for 3.0 :)


Okay, Firefox 3.0 came out, but several extensions I use frequently are not compatible. One I use alot when working on multiple applications is the Minimize to Tray add on, which saves valuable taskbar space by minimizing FF to the system tray instead of the task bar. Well, MTT is not compatible with Firefox 3, which at first made me want to go back to 2.x. A little searching and I found a fix -

1. uninstall MTT from the add-on manager and restart FF

2. install Mr. Tech Toolkit at and restart FF

3. go to the following link - and click the Install link towards the bottom of the page, or click this link to go directly to the .xpi -

4. Restart FF. In the Mr. Tech Toolkit options, go to miscellaneous > xpi install options > *UNCHECK “enable addons compatibility checking”. Restart FF.

5. MTT should now work. Test out by doing a ctrl+shift+m

Bottom line, this is a very useful extension, and we can now use it with FF3…

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
