Mozilla Community meet @ Ameerpet

Date: 19th july 3.0pm,ameerpet,A.P. INDIA
We started with  discussing each others favorite features of Firefox,
*Cbrao said that he is unable to open multiple Gmail accounts at the same time in Firefox, where as he can do so in IE8, using the 'Start a new session' feature. Veeven told him that he can use multiple profiles. (But, afterwards by Googling, he said found Gmail Manager.)
*veeven talked about the awsomebar and recent improvements like restricting the matches to bookmarks (*) and to tagged (+), etc.
* Manish enquired about a way to install/uninstall add-ons without restaring Firefox. Veeven told him that the Jetpacks can meet that requirement.
*Me & Sireesh proposed to start a community website for Firefox users in Andhra Pradesh. Manish suggested it would be better we conduct meetups about all free software's.
A gathering about Firefox without talking on Add-ons? Never.  We spoke about our favorite add-ons.
