  1. Thank you for the Firefox update. I love it! Just the new drag and drop option for the tool bar has saved countless clicks 🙂

    May I add a “tweak’ to your great toolbar tip?
    If you remove all the vowels from the names of the sites, it makes room on the toolbar for more links! (-;

    Ex:

    Hrt f Wsdm
    Th Dr Pst
    Wndrgrnd Wthr
    WSTW
    FcBk

    etc.

    Shabbat Shalom!

    Sorry – didn’t detail how to do this. If your sites are already saved and you drag them to the toolbar, right-click on Properties and edit the name. If you are just now saving it, choose Bookmarks Toolbar under Bookmarks, and edit the name before clicking on Save.
