That wasn't me, but I noticed the problem on a few sites as well.

I do like the extension. A few suggestions:

- with the lists, why not make all the data appear in the columns? For
instance, with images, I need to click on each image to get to the alt-text.
Why not just add an alt-text column?

- a print button on the list windows would be useful

- the toolbar that appears across the top of my browser doesn't seem
moveable or hideable. Since the same options are in the TOOLS >>
ACCESSIBILITY menu, it'd be nice to have an option to hide the regular
toolbar just to conserve screen real estate.

- a lot of the features are also features found in the web-developer
toolbar. That's not a critique...just an obvservation in case you weren't
aware of that extension too.

Overall, though, it's definitely a nice add-on to Firefox.

Also, I've been playing with the Fangs extension a bit too (the screen
reader 'emulator') and that's becoming quite useful as well.
