5Service good; product not so good.
By L. L. Gray
The 2 books were delivered on time, but I was dissapointed that they were so dated. They were not mis-represented, I just neglected to pay attention to the details of the listing.

4Great Book For Firefox Beginners
By Dan McKinnon
I found this book to be a great resource for beginners who are new to Firefox, or an individual that wants to learn more about why they should immediately stop using IE and make the switch! 'Firefox Secrets' is well written with an easy style, not assuming that you are an experienced user, instead it takes the approach that you are new to the joys of using the best browser in the world. Mr. Yeow introduces the reader to the basics of obtaining Firefox, and then quickly goes into the #1 difference that makes Firefox fantastic - tabbed browsing. After explaining what tabbed browsing is and how it can be configured to fit your needs, Bookmarks are examined and then Themes are discussed.

For anyone that is a little bit familiar with Firefox, a look at how to install and configure some of the best extensions on the web is a worthwhile venture, and finally the Author talks about tips/tricks and the available web development add-ins out on the web.

I especially found the web development section to be the most handy. I was already familiar with the outstanding Web Developer extension and have used it for some time, but there were also links to an advanced Javascript debugger, along with other tweaks that the author recommends to improve the web browsing experience.

If you are an expert at Firefox you probably won't learn much from this book, but for any new user or someone who would consider themselves an amateur, I would recommend picking this up because it's very likely that you'll pick up something new -- whether a trick you did not know about or a hot extension, it's unlikely that anyone but the most experienced of users isn't going to learn something new from this text. I found this to be an enjoyable and easy read and I think you will find it worthwhile to peruse as well.
