While Lookout claims to have a fix, this submitter found it was possible to bypass that fix easily as well.

Okay, so here's a list of must have extensions for FireFox and why (All found under the 1.0 link of extensionmirror.nl): Adblock - Get rid of those ads in web pages Allow Right Click - Stupid web masters won't stop me! Basics - I like having a new tab button BugMeNot - No web registration ColorZilla - Cool little eyedropper in FireFox CuteMenus - Adds Icons next to the context menus Download Statusbar - Much better than that download manager Minit - Reorder tabs, really nice Popup Count - See how many have been blocked Popup Alt - See those alt tags Reload Every - Add meta refresh to any site Session Saver - If you don't get anything else, get this.
It saves your tabs and history/location in each one and restores them
on start, even after a crash. Don't use multiple windows though,
it only saves the last window closed (includes things like dl manager
and extension manager.) Spellbound - Spell check your forms before submitting. (Needs to be better integrated.) Target Alert - See what it is before clicking on it. (Still slightly buggy) Text/Plain - Make a URL in plain text a link by highlighting it Titlebar Tweaks - Change how the title is displayed for pages Tweak Network - Use that broadband connection User Agent Switcher - Useful for those pages who want only IE Weatherfox - See what's going on outside your cube Web Developer - Helps deconstruct your website so you can build it correctly
Best part of extensionmirror.nl is that they usually have extensions
repacked for the current FF version even if the author hasn't done it
Oh and for those keeping track, I do have a few more extensions, but
they are not listed on this page, so I'll post them separately.

I'm in a class this term that requires me to print hardcopies of code for submission. So, when I've finished my code, I fire up vi and start printing. 28 pages of mostly white space later, I realize that there must be another way.
Looking around on the web I found c2ps (I have used a2ps in the past when printing a number of files.) However, even this tool didn't do it all for me, as I was looking for a booklet format with no blank pages.
So I put it to you, the slashdot reader/programmer, what tools do you recommend for printing out 28+ classes in booklet form.
(Incidentally, the instructor also requires that we submit an electronic copy, along with a VC++ project, so I'm open to both windows and Unix tools.)
I'm putting this here in case my submission is rejected

Lately, I've been seeing a few things that disturb me more than a little...
First is moderators who are not paying attention.
For example: My comment was modded down as redundent even though I was the first to post on the issue of mac address spoofing.
Second, there has been more than a few users who seem to get pissed off at people for putting up what they feel is inaccuate information.
For example: Perhaps if they had looked at my sources and bothered to read them they might find that I did research this and I was telling what I felt was the real story. Now if they feel I'm wrong, they could have e-mailed me, or better yet, talked to my sources and possibly correct the information out there. Instead, they whine and complain that I got modded up.
Well, I made a comment in response to a message about how the fact that the wtc attack was just liberal propaganda; saying that it was time to stop bickering between parties. Then I re-read the comment and found that it was ment as a joke, so I replied to myself saying sorry I shouldn't have posted. Well it seems that both messages got moded as trolls and as offtopic. What kind of moderators do we have here? I didn't post again expressing my outrage out of fear of getting moded again. I ask anyone reading, what do you think of this situation?
