    I didn't like allinonegestures. I preferred <a href="http://optimoz.mozdev.org/gestures/">this one</a> since it's closer to what I was used to with Opera.

    Misu Hey, I saw that.

    I like the one for Bloglines, so that I can access my blogline subscriptions at any time - it also informs you when one of your subscriptions has updated. Its pretty cool.

    Another one I'm trying right now is BBcode.

    It adds a context menu for easy access to BBCODE formating in forums such as ours.

    BBcode is actually very, very cool and useful. It makes it easier and quicker to manipulate your post in the way you would like.

    I just successfully tested out another extension that is kind of fun.

    It's called Translation Panel and it allows you to add a button on your toolbar that opens a a translation panel.

    Well done, lad!

    I am voting on this for PoD just for the information you've provided and made it easier for me to upgrade to 1PR. :)

    Love the zoom. Comes in VERY handy not having to open another program when thumbnails are posted here.
    Anyone know when Shockwave 3-D will be compatible?

    It was quite painless for me, and I was frankly expecting the worst.

    Many of my extensions automatically updated when I installed the new version. The rest I had to search out a little bit. However, it now looks like Mozilla Update has done a good job of refreshing to the 1.0PR versions of most extensions so that would make it much easier.

    There have been reports of Shockwave 3-D working on the Mac version of Firefox 1.0PR. If true, then it will only be a matter of time (if it isn't already).

    I downloaded bugmenot, but where is it? How do I implement it?

    Go to WP for example. Try to get in to an article. See the registeration page where it asks you to put in stuff. Right click in one of the boxes and bugmenot extension does the rest.

    What ethics said. It just adds a choice to your context menu (right click menu).

    This isn't an extension, but I thought I would post it here anyway.

    Firefox 1.0PR now has the ability to add live bookmarks. What is that you ask? It's the ability to put RSS feeds right into your bookmarks. To me, this is now one of my favorite features!!

    For a better explanation and a how to, please check out this site.

    My only complaint is that I have yet to find a way for them to auto-refresh, but I can't imagine that taking too long for someone to write.

    Oh very slick, I couldn't figure out where it was hiding itself - thanks.

    It still does not beat (Lissa's favorite and mine :)) Bloglines. With Mozilla's Bloglines notifier at my bottom right, I am all set to go. :)
