    It seems we hardly knew yee. When the world discovers your passing it
    will cause an immediate drop in the international stock exchanges of at
    least 20%, I predict.

    It always worked so poorly, I won't miss it. I tried of=d for a while,
    then dragged it off the toolbar.

    Maybe an extension to add this is the better way to go.

    Yeah, I'm still waiting for an easily (grandma-easy) configured
    component bar resurrection on the status bar (as exists in the suite.)
    It just seems that since the browser is the primary net client for most
    folks, having access to their other net clients from the browser is a
    natural.

    I agree with Lee's idea that an extension is the way to go. I never
    used the mail button (or menu item), but I did have a download
    manager and an ftp client integrated in Firefox 1.0.x by using the
    External Application Buttons extension. ISTM better to let the user
    choose which internet apps to add.

    Unfortunately, that extension hasn't been updated . . . .

    Well, I just found that Geckozone has an updated version of it, but
    it doesn't work well for me. I wish Torisugari would come
    back to update his extensions.

    I could accept an extension but as you indicated above both the benefit
    and the anxiety of extensions lie in their add-on nature.

    The benefit is that only those who need the added feature need carry the
    bloat, the anxiety is that those who need the feature too often are left
    hanging onto a back-level when it doesn't work in the next release.

    Oh well, I'll suffer through it :-)

    Gee, would that people would update their extensions and *themes* like,
    well, the manager of say, Sky Pilot.

    A backhanded way of saying many thanks!
