    I fixed nested lists and broken links, added Win Fx4&Fx6 screenshots, changed the behavior for remembering passwords, rewrote the introduction and master password sections, added a summary and keywords. It needs review.

    Thanks Scoobidiver. I'm going to do another pass and add some mac screenshots.

    I did a bunch of re-writing. I didn't really change any information — just lots of simplifying and clarifying. I also simplified the screenshots, going with the same save password prompt for Fx 4, 5 and 6 since it differs in trivial ways between versions. I also used the same images for the options panel for all versions of Fx since the only difference is the absence of the Sync icon in Fx 3.6. And finally, I experimented with animated gifs in the Viewing and deleting passwords section for Windows and Mac. The Linux version of that section has a still image.

    I find this tiring for the eyes.

    Let's try them out and see how it goes. We're going to do some user testing of the site soon, maybe we can get some feedback on these too.

    I like the idea of the animated gif also, especially for mobile articles because we can stack the screens instead of having them in a row. I approved this revision and made one typo fix, based on Verdi's draft, but maybe I jumped the gun here and we should discuss this more, or at least the speed of this animation?

    Thanks, Michelle
