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 tried firefox for two weeks and found a few niches that Mozilla had that I prefered over firefox so I went back to Mozilla, whew...long breath.
In Mozilla you can set the mouse scroll to a number of lines at a time whereas in Firefox I couldn't find this option.
When using an e-mail program other than mozilla (while using firefox) it won't open a new window from a link in the e-mail if another instance of firefox is currently open.
These are two that stood out to me, there were others but I can't remember them off the top of my head. Overall, I think firefox is a good, fast web-browser but I prefer the multi-functionality (good scrabble word lol) of Mozilla instead.
I was talking with a buddy of mine yesterday that worked for AOL. He apparently knew some of the developers of Mozilla and was told that when they pulled Firebird and Thunderbird out of Mozilla, they didn't just leave behind the other components. Apparently they also left behind a bunch of old, entangled, buggy code. Apparently the separation enabled an easier flushing of the system.
