Mozilla Firebird is ready to rock



Mozilla Firebird is almost ready to replace IE on my desktop. It is fast, and almost all of my habits from IE carry over. Joel’s review of it is what got me to try again. I’ve tried Mozilla several times in the past and just given up because it was such a pig.

I have two complaints. First, the middle-click and drag scrolling behavior of IE is not supported. Second, the Moveable Type entry body editing box does not have the useful little “make link” button, which I use a lot.

I suppose maybe the latter problem is because Moveable Type doesn’t know that Firebird is capable of the same tricks that IE is.

Update: This and this solved my problems! Thanks to Mike Goodspeed for the help. That’s great evangelizing at work!
