Hello all, I have a short and simple personal message to toss in with our regular scheduled postings. I know for a few months back there, the number of posts here really fell a little flat while I dealt with a number of personal issues and triumphs.

Firefox Facts has finally finished moving from our old sponsored hosting account from another hosting provider, to a brand new (and powerful) VPS hosting account. What is a VPS hosting account, and what does this mean for you, you and you over there? Check out the details on my fantastic other website, Mitchelaneous.com.
According to a recent Mozilla analyst report for the first quarter of 2010, Firefox is in control of 30% of the world’s internet browser landscape. How was this number reached? They combined several reliable sources, such as StatCounter, Quantcast, Net Applications, and Gemius. The only continent not highlighted was Antarctica, due to usage number for Firefox being somewhere in the 80s.
I figured today I would post some of the most wanted Firefox Facts that I have gotten and have not been able to answer. This way at least, we can get the ideas out there so that if there is a solution – we can find an answer. On the other hand, if there isn’t a solution, then at least we have created a place for extension writers to gain some inspiration.
Bob – how about being able to type an email now for a specified later delivery? (via Google’s gMail)
Ken – This is a simple one, but… I’d love it if the mouse-over tab color were different than the active tab color. Right now they’re the same. And if the mouse is over the [X], then it’s lit up the same way. I keep closing what I think is the active tab I’m currently looking at when it’s merely the one my mouse happens to be over. Frustrating.
Zeke – Need an easy way to resize the font for the “bookmarks” sidebar.
Evgeny – I would really like to have an extension for quick sending e-mail from GMail.
Jens – I want to know what week it is, in my statusbar. That feature is for some reason not included in “date & time” in Windows, not even in Google calendar, and not in my mobile phone. Why?
Seymour – What I would love to find is an extension that would display Bookmark folders in several columns next to each-other even filling up the whole screen; then I could more easily mouse over to the appropriate folder which then would expand when I moused over to it.
