Thanks Kudos..

I would love for them to update Orca since its still using Firefox 3.5.2 but they are putting all their effort into Avant 12. So maybe Orca 2 will include Firefox 3.6 instead. If 3.6 is released in the next few months that is.

Firefox 3.6 has been released
Release notes... wrote: What’s New in Firefox 3.6:

Firefox 3.6 is built on Mozilla's Gecko 1.9.2 web rendering platform, which has been under development since early 2009 and contains many improvements for web developers, add-on developers, and users. This version is also faster and more responsive than previous versions and has been optimized to run on small device operating systems such as Maemo.

Notable Firefox 3.6 features include:

* Available in more than 70 languages - get your local version.
* Support for a new type of theme called Personas, which allow users to change Firefox's appearance with a single click.
* Protection from out-of-date plugins to keep users safer as they browse.
* Open, native video can now be displayed full screen and supports poster frames.
* Improved JavaScript performance, overall browser responsiveness, and startup time.
* The ability for web developers to indicate that scripts should run asynchronously to speed up page load times.
* Continued support for downloadable web fonts using the new WOFF font format.
* Support for new CSS attributes such as gradients, background sizing, and pointer events.
* Support for new DOM and HTML5 specifications including the Drag & Drop API and the File API, which allow for more interactive web pages.
* Changes to how third-party software can integrate with Firefox in order to prevent crashes.

Please see the complete list of changes in this version.

No problem. That setting evaded me for a while as well but it didn't make sense that they would remove that feature. It just got moved in 3.5.
