Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I upgraded Firefox and now running 3.6.11. Now the tabs are behaving different. Instead of each new tab being put on the end of the list, they are put in front. In programming terms, what was FIFO has now become LIFO. Is there any config option to change this or do I need to downgrade Firefox and lock it there?

Even if Tex hadn't provided the solution the answer to that question would be an emphatic No!. 3.6.11 fixes a security problem and any lower version might have that (or even others that were fixed in subsequent releases).
Sorry, It's kind of off topic but have you noticed how in FF4 beta (/testing in Slackware) the right click menu items got rearranged to imitate Google-Chrome? The new arrangement is:
1.Open Link in a New Tab
2.Open Link in a New Window
Being a small detail, it's quite annoying as I automatically keep clicking on the second menu item which opens new instances of FF!
personally, I prefer the new way, it makes more sense to me.
Personally, I prefer having a way to choose. It's not the fact that the default changed that bothers me ... it was that there was no option to change it back under the obvious preferences tab called "tabs". OK, so the about:config will fix it. But doesn't "about:config" contradict what is supposed to be obvious and easy preferences settings?
Tab Tearing - Didn't even know it allowed for that. It seems cool - you can even drag the tab back from the new window into the original tab location in the old window. (You have to drag the tab from the new window not the new window itself.)
What do you mean you have to stop tab tearing though? Is this something that has been happening without you dragging the tab out? Or you have been accidentally dragging the tab out of the window when you were just trying to move it within the window?
