>>First do I change the icons back to version .7 and .8 (I think they looked better)
I'm not too sure, but you may want to dig arround the extensions, by going here:
>>How do I get rid of the GO icon. Don't like it at all.
You may just want to change the theme. I personally like the Noia 2.0 Extreme theme from Mozilla.
>>How do I change the search toolbar on the right, so it uses google.co.uk and ebay.co.uk
You can find hundreds of more search engines for the bar by visiting:
I hope this helps!
tinkering with the browser.jar (browser.xul file) in the chrome folder would customize it fully ....
If you right hand click next to the address bar you can select "customise" then simply drag the Go button into the box of unused icons :D
So how do I remove search plugins.
I want to replace the google.com for the google.co.uk
Has anyone thought of doing a web master world plug in?
Sorry to answer myself, but if you just go into the searchplugins dir and you can edit and delete to your hearts content.
To change the default search URL (and many other settings), type "about:config" (no quotes) into your address bar. This is a "page" inside Firefox itself, with many browser configuration settings displayed and editable.
Look for the setting "browser.search.defaulturl", right-click, and change the value to "http://www.google.co.uk/search?lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=" or whatever URL you like.
If you bookmark the "about:config" page, you'll have easy access to tweak the other settings, too.
To change the look of the buttons, just download a new skin. (I think there is one for the old look.)
You can add a search engine by clicking on the arrow next to the big G in the search field.
The old default skin is called Qute - but it hasn't yet been updated for 1.0. Most likely, it'll be available in a few days, so I'll just have to be patient until it turns up as an update.
I find the default theme particularly ugly - it's the weakest point of the browser in my opinion. Qute was (and is) beautiful, and is a far better choice.
They had to lose it because of licencing problems.
