Special tech tip for Firefox users!

With extra hugs to dalizzie da geek!

If you’re using Firefox, you’re missing the mouseover texts, which means all kinds of Extra Special Jokes are going on, and you’re missing them. Well, maybe the jokes aren’t all that special, but still.

Two things to do: Go to ‘Tools’, then ‘Addons’, then ‘Get Add-ons’, then ‘Browse All Add-ons’

Search for, and install, Popup ALT Attribute (to make the alt text appear as a mouseover text) or IE Tab (to allow you to load an IE tab within Firefox).

ETA:  After receiving several heartfelt pleas, including one from me, the developer has updated this add-on to work in Firefox 4!

Back to our earlier post:
You can install both. If you install IE Tab, you’ll get a little icon in the bottom right-hand corner of each browser tab. Usually, it will be the Firefox icon. Click on it to toggle back and forth between IE and Firefox; the icon will change.
 
An added level of coolness is that it will only apply to the one tab; your other browser tabs will stay Firefoxy.
