    Have dl'd Mandriva 2008 and installed in VM: nice: looks good, goes well, good app selection: all good OOB, but, using FF as browser and installed TabMixPlus fro control: Mandriva breaks this extension :(

    This alone is an annoyance: anybody know how to fix this ?
    Mandriva has remodelled FF ? Is that Kosher?

    This gives me pause for thought re other extensions and functionality with FF in Mandriva.

    regards.

    If the problem is Mandriva's customized Firefox, then try a normal copy or a build such as Swiftfox.
