    Question for all the firefox experts out there...

    When using IE, I have the option of having links underlined all the time or just when I'm hovering over the link. Does Firefox have something similar? Right now all the links on sites I'm viewing with Firefox are underlined, and I find that to be a pain.

    I've looked in their help file, but came up empty. Any suggestions, comments and/or info will be, as always, greatly apreciated. Many thanks in advance.

    Adam :)

    Not sure....I use Firefox but hadn't paid attenetion that it does that. Since it transfers some settins from IE when installed mabey that has something to do with it??

    Adam,

    Here's how you change it.

    1. Type "about:config" in the address bar (without the quotes)
    2. Find an entry that says browser.underline_anchors by searching for the word "underline". (Use CTRL-F to bring up Find).
    3. Double click on this entry to change it to user set
    4. Close & restart Firefox.

    Worked for me on Firefox 2.0

    You are certainly welcome. About:config lets you change many settings in Firefox. Very useful.
