Access OpenType Font Features
OpenType fonts (.otf) often have special features, such as swashes and alternate characters, that are accessible in any app that uses the OS X font panel, including Pages and TextEdit. To access them, type and select your text, press Command-T to open the font panel, and then choose Typography from the Actions pop-up menu. That shows the Typography panel, where you can toggle available options for the font and characters you've selected.

Note that if you haven’t opened Firefox in awhile and allowed the automatic updates to be applied, you’ll have to go through multiple updates to get to Firefox 18 (our version needed to first jump from 16.0.1 to 17.0.1 and then to 18).
I'm not sure I've actually used Firefox other than to check a Website in about two years . . .
I use this a lot to search TidBITS, Amazon, and Google (since I have the omnibox set to do Google Browse By Name, per http://tidbits.com/article/12099 )
I shudder to think what will happen when Firefox reaches drinking age!
