Mozilla has released Thunderbird 3.0, their email and news client, but after upgrading from Thunderbird 184.108.40.206 I found that my RSS feeds were no longer displaying the linked web page when viewing them, instead they were displaying the article summary.
There are two different settings controlling this functionality, the first can be found by entering ‘Manage Subscriptions’ and editing the individual feed. There is a tick box called ‘Show the article summary instead of loading the web page’, to load the web page, make sure this is unticked.
The second setting can be found by viewing the feed and then on the main menu navigate to ‘View > Feed Message Body As’ and selecting ‘Default Format’.

When email is downloaded by Microsoft Outlook (external link) it is stored locally in a special file format with the extension PST, the default location of your PST file varies by which version of Microsoft Windows you have installed.
For Windows 2000/XP (external link) the default location is:
C:\Documents and Settings\<user_id>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
For Windows Vista (external link) the default location is:
This is because Microsoft changed the LOCALAPPDATA location when they created Vista, yours can be found by opening a Command Prompt window (Run > cmd.exe) and then running set.exe, this will display a list of special strings that have been setup for your current login. If you search through them you should find the LOCALAPPDATA string, this is then used to build the default location by adding MicrosoftOutlook onto the end.

Or how I learned to stop worrying and make Firefox look like Chrome.
When Google Chrome was released it suddenly dawned on me that Firefox did not blend very well with Windows Vista. The main problem is the complete lack of transparency which when comparing Firefox with the standard Vista dialogs was an obvious difference. As with most things Firefox this problem has been solved by an add-on called Glasser (external link). This is currently an experimental add-on so you will need to create a Mozilla login before you can download it, but I have been using it successfully for weeks now with no stability problems. It does cause some issues with the menubar but these can be solved by installing another add-on called Personal Menu (external link), this hides the menubar and moves it elsewhere onto the browser window.
