comment How to turn off Firefox 3.5's in-browser media player?
My appologies, I sould have read more closely. If you go to tools>add-ons>plug-ins and disable quicktime, you will have to select what you want firefox to do.

comment How do I image my hard drive for backup? Or do I just need to backup the files?
If you are transferring to Windows7 you do not want an image - unless you want to keep the door open to roll back to your previous OS. An image restores the operating system along with all your files.

Depending on the program you use. With drive snapshot, the compression is pretty good, and you end up with a smaller image. With some imaging software the image is the size of the entire disk - not just the amount used.

You can't actually boot to an image. An image is a little like a zip folder. It has all the files, but they need to be expanded before you use them. Can take an image and restore it to a disk and boot to that though, if that's what you are trying to do. You can boot to an external if you have your BIOS set correctly.

That's what an image is for. You can do a complete format of the drive, and then restore your system from the image. It's a bit for bit copy of your hard drive (effectively).

using volumouse also seems to break functionality. I will have to find a script for that as well.
