    You know how in Firefox when you right click on a photo on a web page there is an option to make it your wallpaper. When you click that. A little box apeers letting you make it Center,Tile or Stretch and also lets you pick the color of the backround. I love this option and im really hoping it will be in IE7 Final! Has anyone here heard if it will be added to IE7? I know I can right click on the Desktop and do it from there but having it like the way it is in firefox is much more convenient and faster. I know some of you make think its funny but this is the number 1 thing I hope that is added to IE7. I wish there was a way I could e mail the people working on IE7 about this. I bet it would not even be too hard for them to do.

    Any news on this?

    I hope not.  I don't like the extra dialog.  IE tends to get it right most of the time and if not i can always right click the desktop and change it. 

    I wouldn't be upset if they make the change, but I think we need a crusade against modal wizard dialogs cropping up everywhere. 

    Sometimes I want stuff to just be done and don't want to wait. Modal dialogs are horrid design that should only be used when necessary.  MessageBox.Show() is destroying civilization as we know it.

    What about if the dialog box had a "Show this next time too" checkbox?

    There's a work-around

    Open about:config and look for "browser.xul.error_pages.enabled", set it to "true".

    Problem solved Smiley
