    Added TrafficLight. Replace WOT with LinkExtend.
    Replaced Google Translator Tooltip with Highlight2Translate 2.0. Removed GoogleMonkeyR.
    Replaced Cursor indicator with Hover Cursor - another cursor. Added Better Scrollbars, Firefox 4 Addonbar in a corner, and Firefox 4.0 - Menu icons.

    Why do you have so many separate styles? At least some of them, depending on usage, can be combined into one. I'm not sure that there's any great benefit though, other than reducing clutter.

    I don't see them available combined. I'm not going to do it myself, because of lack of experience and they're working fine.

    I don't think they come combined, but I'm used to identifying code I need and having it in a "mega" sheet. That approach has its plus and minus points.

    May I count the lack of customization as customization?

    But you need to get a nice modern name for it. I'd go for neoSpartan.

    I can't help but post this:
    Mrk, modest as ever :D

    Firefox 3.6.21 works superb with all my programs and add-ons etc. Not a single glitch in sight.

    If that is FF customization, then NO FURTHER COMMENT is necessary. What more can a very happy chappie say ?

    My philosophy on life is to let others endure the bumps , bruises and losses of testing out new models, then when the dust has settled and all the blood has been spilt, step in and reap the benefits of a proven commodity at others expense.

    Well, I acknowledge all your observations, but my FF works fine without any problems and until Mozilla pull the skids from under me, I`ll stick with 3.6.21. I do not play games.

    It's interesting that they're keeping 3.6. going, I know quite a few people still use it. You should try the Portable Apps Firefox 6.0.1 English (British) version of course! ;)

    I'm very impressed with it.

    I think staying on 3.6.x has become a matter of prestige ;)

    I love upgrades because they're free :D Catch me paying for one!
