    Seems that about:plugins is bringing up information not just for firefox, but for all other browsers (i.e. Internet Explorer).  I'm still wondering what is going on there.  I've marked I.E.-specific ones in red

    I think Netscape plugins are stored in a shared directory somewhere so any browser can use them (and yes, IE still uses old Netscape plugins), so a plugin installed for one would show up in any other browser's list.

    My FF2:

    Extensions:
    Download Statusbar
    Feedview (disabled, not compatible with FF2)
    IE Tab

    Tabbrowser Preferences
    User Agent Switcher
    View Source Chart
    Web Developer
    Window Resizer

    Themes:
    (Ones that work)
    Firefox default (current theme)
    Noia 2.0 (eXtreme)
    Outlook 2003 Blue
    Winstripe FF Classic
    (Ones that I wished worked)
    Tango Icons

    Plugins:
    IE Tab Plug-in
    QuickTime
    Flash
    Office 2007 Plugin for Netscape

    Perhaps I should download a Plugin to stop Firefox 2.0 from crashing so freaking much!  I mean what the heck, it has locked up on me today alone 5 times!  Thats on XP and Vista, XP it did it twice, and Vista 3 times. 

    What is the deal with that?  Anyhoo my array is quit small as I try to keep unnecessary clutter.  So its Google Toolbar, and thats it.

    Is anyone else seeing this thread in a strange format? I see it not like the other threads, but in smaller, blue text, with no background.

    I've noticed a bunch of my extensions are complaining about dependencies, and FireFox says they're disabled.

    But they still work.

    I really wish noscript didn't kill the WMP extension.

    When I did use FF, I used to use the Pimpzilla theme.

    I was rather fond of that theme.

    Did you try clicking on the no script icon and giving permission to the blocked item?

    >But they still work.

    I think that means the Fx administration feels they need to be improved.

    Ah but by then it's too late, the plugin has crashed already and won't resurrect.

    And if you kill Firefox it will recreate the sessions, and crash again. Heh.

    The only way around it is to turn noscript off before you hit a media page, or enable that site permanently.

    Now, if only I can figure out why it keeps loosing my spellcheck settings for the C9 input boxes.
