Graphic displays with Firefox 3

  Rebuilt 21:07 24 Jun 2008

I am trying hard to get used to Firefox 3 despite some cosmetic changes I still don't like.

One of the most difficult is the way it handles graphics (not only JPG but also TIF). It may be fine when it is a genuine picture (not tried that yet) but when it is a fax or any other form of text then it is near impossible to print correctly.

Any chance of customising this?

(OH!! - and I would love to customise the drop down address bar so each only took one line)

Sorry, I didn't make it clear. I was comparing Firefox 3 to Firefox 2 (not IE).
I really liked Firefox 2 but I am finding 3 a bit hard going. I have had to report a number of problems with corrupted page displays.

I have looked at the customisation facilities and, so far, I have not found an option to change the look & feel of the dropdown on the central address entry bar.

However, thanks for all the links. I will work through them
