Firefox 2.0

Alright, so I downloaded the new Firefox 2.0 and here's my problem:

You know when you go to quick post in this website... you would hit Alt + S as the keyboard shortcut. Well, in Firefox 2.0, it definitely opens up the history tab next to file, edit, view, history, bookmarks, tools and help. Is there anyway to get it to stop opening the "History" tab in Firefox or am I going to have to get used to actually clicking the "Quick Response" button?

I know this is random and dumb, but I'm curious.

personally I love firefox, but I work in a sysadmin role and since the customers use IE it had better look right in IE so I use IE. but firefox with the adblock plus add-on rocks.

I only use the Firefox, but if need be (i.e. a stupid plug in...) I installed an add-on to switch back and forth between IE and FF in the FF browser. It's sweet. It's called IE Tab.

i used FF on my old comp because IE kept crashing ( corrupt or something) but on my new comp i find IE is actualy just as fast, and blocks popups better

IE Tab is cool but it renders things slightly differently than IE.

As for old browsers,
I've used slipknot, mosiac, various netscape browsers all before IE had the market.

love the firefox.. and even if IE comes with tabbed browsing, id still feel comfortable with FF. one downside with firefox is that it takes up so much of your PC's memory.

^^ It may take up memory, but on my comp its like 2x faster on average.

Its better than IE in my opinon. FF is helping to prvent IE from taking over the internet just like Google is trying to.
