Re: [FireFox] No New Tab button Windows 8

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.
