Windows 7: Firefox Question

Firefox Question

I recently was forced to switch from IE 8 to Firefox 3.6. (had a strange problem so I switched instead of fighting) I like Firefox but I would like it to look like IE 8. Is there anyway to move the Find Bar from the bottom to the top? Also is there a way to put the Bookmarks on the left like in IE 8?

Hi Bigmck

Not sure what you mean by find bar but you can put the bookmarks on the left using the sidebar.Go to View-sidebar and tick bookmarks, although these will always stay open but you can narrow the side bar.

If you click on Edit and Find, a bar opens at the bottom. IE had it at the top. I guess if I want Firefox to look like IE, I should use IE. Thanks for your help.

Firefox question
right now my homepages in FF are a few blogs, would it be possible to have each blog only open if there is a new post on it? it would make it faster and easier to see only the blogs with new posts on them, anyone know if this is possible? or some kind of similar alternative?
