Right now when I press Enter, it opens in the current tab, and it kind of defeats the purpose.
Pressing Alt+Enter instead of Enter works. Trying to find if there's a way to make it the default.

Anybody know if there's a way to click on a linked picture and open a new tab? Middle click used to do it, but now it doesn't seem to work. (e.g. those buttons on the top of the FW screen.)

ctrl-click no longer works either, is there anything faster than right-click "open in new tab" every time?

I think I solved the problem by loading another extension. It seems to work now.

You can drag tabs around to reorder them; I think this is new to v1.5. Just though other FF users (who hadn't noticed) might like to know.

Are you saying that tab reordering was around in previous versions?

'Right-click -> Open Link in New Tab' is my all-time favorite browser feature.

Favoriter than just using middle click to do that?

Since updating adblock (which apparently was my main offender), FF's been sitting pretty at 80k.

I don't use adblock. I turned off Forecastfox and rebooted. 189,996K. Admittedly, I'm using Fasterfox.

While memory usage usually runs from 90,000k to 115,000k (which is quasi-acceptable), why does firefox consistently use 40-75% of my CPU usage??! I'm not doing anything crazy-go-nuts with it.
