They have Adblock for Chrome.

For a while, I opted to use Nightly, FF's nightly build, so the changes were gradual for me. When updating it, often it would warn me that certain add-ons were not compatible. I only use a few like add-block, etc., which was irritating so I stick with FF 9.0.1.

Anything is better than IE.

I use these forums to glean Mozilla knowledge. I am a Seamonkey, (Netscape), fan.

I was hoping that FF 9.0.1 would enable one of my favorite features of IE. Unfortunately, this is, apparently, not the case.

That is, the ability to easily (one step) send pages (not links) by E-mail. Links have the bad habit of expiring or disappearing. I will have the pages sent by E-mail until my PC, Carbonite, and the internet crash.

I realize that saving pages sent by E-mail is the new age equivalent of clipping articles out of newspapers or magazines and placing them into a scrapbook. Does this qualify me as a curmudgeon or merely an old codger?

I think you are smart. I save important information on my hard drive and back it up twice. I do not trust the cloud. Even if I do everything right, too many people who control my information seem to be making mistakes.
