I'm only now learning to appreciate smart bookmark folders, but I'd like to be able to create more specific searches with them. Specifically, I'd like to be able to limit my searches to the tag field. I have a "recipe" smart bookmark that works nicely, except for the "Recipes for financial success" article that it also pulls in.

EVERY time I use firefox, it has a new update available. Can I please tell you how goddamned annoying this is? I think it's on version 3.5.13 right now. DID YOU REALLY NEED TO RELEASE THIRTEEN FREAKING VERSIONS OF VERSION 3.5?!?! Give me a break.

Would you mind PLEASE saving your updates until it's at least major enough to warrant a tenth-of-a-version-number, as in, from 3.5 to 3.6, etc? Is that really too much to freakin ask?

So some virus-infected "article" comes up and, stupidly, I open it. O.K., whatever. My SpyBot thing has kicked-in and now most of the crashing has stopped. BUT, I still get annoying pop-ups and my Homepage keeps getting changed to "Startup" and I have to constantly change it back (to Yahoo). It *seems* that a simple, very very simple, "site block" -- tailored to keep this or that annoying, spammish site -- tool could/should be available. But either it's not, or the application/tool is buried so deep in all the other bells and whistles of All Things Firefox, that this simple and obvious tool can't be found.

What's with this???
