FireFox: still a few rough edges

I’ve been using the “FireFox”: web browser more heavily lately, especially since I found these two extensions:

  • miniT, which lets me move the tabs around (I can’t believe that wasn’t built in — it’s in every other tabbed application, even ones from the Dark Empire).
  • Session Saver which stores the window and tab state of FireFox and restores it the next time FireFox is started. That was a key feature of Opera that kept me using that browser.

However, one thing that Opera and Internet Explorer does better than FireFox is searching inside text boxes. This is a big deal if one is trying to fix templates on a Movable Type weblog. Opera, unsurprisingly, does the best job. Normally it doesn’t search text boxes but if you click inside one then it will search that box. IE seems to always search everything, which is still better than not being able to search at all.
