Spin Through Toolbar View Options

Although many people never change their toolbars from the default settings, all standard toolbars on the Mac offer six states: icon only, text only, and icon and text, with all three coming in normal and small size. You can change them by choosing View > Customize Toolbar.

But there's a shortcut that makes it easier to check out each variant. Simply Command-click the toolbar lozenge at the upper right of a window, and the toolbar switches to the next view. Click it enough times, and you cycle back to the start.

 
 

Firefox 6.0.1

A fraudulent SSL certificate has been issued for some public Web sites belonging to Google by the certificate authority DigiNotar. Although DigiNotar has now revoked the fraudulent certificate, which should protect most users, it’s conceivable that users on a compromised network could be fooled into using a fraudulent Web site masquerading as a Google service. Because the extent of the problem isn’t yet clear, Mozilla has released Firefox 6.0.1 (along with updates to all other currently supported Mozilla software) to revoke trust in the DigiNotar root certificate, which you can also disable manually. There are no other changes, but it’s worth getting the update to avoid potential problems related to the fraudulent certificate. (Free, 28.1 MB, release notes)
