It let's you open wmv files with mplayer (or any other video player) even if the mime-type is not set up correctly on the web page. This was a major pain in Mozilla.
Well, it's, of course, not mozilla's fault at all. As you said the site admins didn't do their job and never set the mime type correctly. At the end of the day you could say IE is at fault because it just ignores the mime type for wmv files and people checking their pages with IE only think "hey, everything works" when in fact it doesn't.
Isn't it aboutlugins for mozilla, too?A few minor quirks though. Had to dig hard to find where to check for installed plug-ins.
Hehe. Yeah, that's a left-over from before then first name change. The latest nightly builts do in fact use ~/.firefox (and automatically convert your ~/.phonix directory)It stores user data in ~/.phoenix, it would make more sense to have it in ~/.firefox.
Same here. Actually it's dafault for me on both OS X and linux since 0.7. There are just so many things I couldn't surf without: The adblocker extension and flash-click-to-play. Or the ingenious mycroft site search plugins: They add the ability to do direct searches on all major web site like google.com(/linux) imdb, ebay, amzon, wkikipedia, ... you name it, from the little box next to the URL bar.Anyway, it became my default browser really quick.
