Feb 26th 2011 12:14PM @Bryan Price I couldn't get it working either. I just get a blank space when I click on it.

10+ great add-ons that only work with Firefox 4 (Download Squad)

Feb 21st 2011 1:39PM Instead of Barlesque I would recommend Firefox 4 UI Fixer as it lets you move all your status bar buttons around so I have mine in the top right next to the search box, much like Chrome does.

My favourite search addon is Scroll Search Engines which lets you mouse wheel over the search box to change search provider. The best thing is when you highlight something and right click to do the context search you can use the scroll wheel there as well. Brilliant. (Although it's currently not compatible with FF4 all it takes is a quick bump to the max version and it works perfectly.)

Finally, I like the idea of App Tabs but mine don't stick when you restart the browser. I wouldn't use them if I had to set them up every time. I had heard it might be a conflict with TabMix Plus but even when I disable that it still doesn't work. Anyone esle have the same problem?

Jun 11th 2010 3:36PM You can't do I'm feeling lucky in the integrated search bar. Plus the text of what you searched for stays in the box for all to see.

Windows 7 Folder Background Changer personalizes Explorer views (Download Squad)

Jun 7th 2010 4:57PM i Just discovered a totally simple way of doing it with no extra programs at all. Open your folder, right click anywhere inside and click customize this folder. On the customise tab you can simply click change folder icon at the bottom and point it to the new .ico.

Here is a quick shot I did with the utorrent folder to illustrate:


This is on Windows 7 by the way.
