  1. I don’t like it, at least the Windows version. I’m now having a hard time saving images (right-click, save image as…). Firefox won’t let me open shortcut folders. I know, I probably need to rebuild my user profile or something.

    On a side note, this form has some odd behavior (background image overlaid on top of form) using Firefox on Mac.

    The background image thing is caused by the Google ads. I’ve only seen it happen in Firefox (and Mozilla). Not sure what’s going on.

  3. I don’t get it, Google Ads? It only started happening to me once I upgraded 1.0.1 and it happens on every page, not just pages with Google AdSense running. I wish I could go back to 1.0, but I can’t find that build any more (no, I didn’t look too hard).

    Now I have to save all my images to the desktop and then move them around the old fashioned way.

    I was referring to the “background image overlaid on top of form” problem, which is caused either by the object loading the ads or the iframe written by the ad code.

  5. Oh, right. Two different topics about background images makes Justin confused.
