I really love and prefer to use Mozilla's Firefox web browser. I know IE supports tabs now, for browsing, but I just find Firefox to be cleaner visually. I love that when I reopen Firefox I can have it set to reopen my windows and tabs from my last session. Another thing I really like in Firefox are the Add-Ons. I use FireFTP for uploading my files. It is the easiest FTP program I have ever used, and the great thing is that it just opens in a tab in your web browser! The Download Statusbar is another favorite as is Foxmarks Bookmark Synchronizer which I use to keep the bookmarks on my tower the same as the bookmarks on my laptop. This is so helpful! and it works great. I am able to keep a bookmarks "toolbar" just above my browser tabs, a horizontal string of folders with all my bookmarks organized and easy to click from. The fabulous part of this is bookmarking-made-easy. I just drag a tab to a folder and it saves that page bookmark in whichever folder I drag it to. There are just a great many things I love about Firefox.
Still, I've been having some glitches which made some things a little frustrating. I had tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but that doesn't remove Firefox from your system so it doesn't really help. This morning I suddenly had this one inch high solid tan horizontal bar underneath my browser window status bar. Some other things seemed to be working oddly too, so I tried a system restore. Everything was back to normal, except the tan bar was still there so I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox hoping whatever little setting had gone haywire would be righted. The tan bar was still there. So I decided to find out how to uninstall Firefox completely. I found this page which was very helpful. ("This article contains instructions to uninstall Firefox and remove it from your system.") When I reinstalled I could tell that it was a nice new install. But, the tan bar was still there. Back to the Google drawing board. So I found this link, Gray bar below the status bar, and now the tan bar is gone. It took a little bit, but I finally found which extension was causing the tan bar. So, just in case you ever need to know, this is how to get rid of that tan bar.
