Re: [FireFox] No New Tab button Windows 8

The one you have is one of very few Logitech makes that is not low profile keys. But I don't like palm rests. Palm rests force you to bend your wrists to have your hands above the rest for typing. Logitech says that keyboard keeps you from bending your wrists but I think it is the opposite. I never bend my wrists with regular keyboards. My hand are not resting on anything when I type. I type like I learned on a non-electric typewriter when I was a kid. The problem with this new low profile keyboard is that it is way too different from a typewriter keyboard. The old computer keyboards were more like typewriter ones. This kind completely disrupts your rhythm. If you are young and never learned typewriter typing then it might be different but I need a keyboard as much like a typewriter one as possible ...plus a manual keyboard would be best as even electric typewriter keyboards are not as good as the old fashioned manual ones. My mother still types on an ancient Royal and folks marvel that she can do that and still has almost the speed and non errors she had when young. I've never really liked any computer keyboards...you really need to have never typed on real typewriters to be able to do well on a computer keyboard.

The palm rest is not even touched when you put the feet down on the underside of the keyboard.

If you lay it flat then your wrist will rest on the keyboard.

Ok, but I hate that. I want a real tilt so that my wrists rest on the pull out tray that holds the keyboard. This new keyboard has almost no tilt and you have to hold your wrists above the tray and no support for the wrists. You cannot typed on a keyboard that is flat unless you hold your wrists up all the time. I want a fully tiltable keyboard with no fat palm rest to put your wrists. Your wrists should sit on the tray not on the keyboard. I can't type on a laptop for the same reason...the keyboard is too flat and it is extremely difficult to type on a laptop.

It is too bad your stores do not carry the latest wireless keyboards from MS and Logitech. You might just be surprised how comfortable they are to type on let alone their keyboard customization features.

I saw two wireless ones in Wal-Mart from Logitech but they are the low key ones. I am back on the XP machine and I can type again properly. Plus, this older keyboard is very quiet and the new one is noisy besides it having no give to the keys. There is no lag on this old one. I don't get a lot too many spaces between words and even between letters in words like I do on the new one. I don't constantly accidentally hit the capslock key like I do on the new keyboard. It is a great relief to be back on the older keyboard. The difference between the two keyboards is astounding. I love the "give" when I hit a key on this old board as compared to a feeling of bangng my fingers on concrete that is unforgivin, with no give, on the new keyboard.

The new keyboard requires a very light touch which at my age, and having trained as a 11 year old on a manual typewriter, is too drastic a change I think. My mother couldn't even adjust to an electric typewriter and still types very fast, at her very old age, on an old manual typewriter that she hunt and hunt for a ribbon for several years ago. The new keyboards are fine though for kids just starting out typing.

Pale Moon doesn't have a new tab button in the tool bar, so I had to use the above extension to add it there.

It's weird to me because on my XP Pro virtual machine that also runs Fx 10 ESR, the default Fx theme has a new tab icon...doesn't look like the one I got from your link. So, I don't understand why Fx 10 ESR on Win 8 doesn't have the icon because it too uses the default theme. Ahhh....it's the Persona. I just installed a new Persona and got a whole bunch of icons in customize that were not there for the other Persona.
