    I would definetely start using Firefox over Safari, but I like how in Safari and IE, when you press the Tab key it only goes to text fields, but in Firefox it seems to go to text-fields AND links... anyone know how to change this?

    There is an extension that covers this; Configuration Mania
    Once installed go to Tools->Congifuration Mania->Keyboard Navigation and check the boxes you wish for Tab Key Navigation

    is that a Windows-only Extension? I can't seem to make it work on 10.3

    Works fine for me
    What version are you using? Mine is: 1.05.2004110501
    Where did you get it from? I got mine from: http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/index.php?showtopic=204

    Try this:
    In the address bar type: about:config
    In the Filter bar type: accessibility.tabfocus
    Control+click on it (or you should be able to double click it as well) and select Modify
    Enter in 7 and click Ok
    This should get you the same effect as what Configuration Mania does.
