Default Making use of the new Firefox 3 Page Info menu

The Page Info menu in Firefox 3 has been redesigned to provide the user with additional information about the currently active website. The easiest way to reach that menu is by left-clicking on the Favicon of the website and then on the More Information button. For those that do not know, the Favicon is the small icon on the left side of the url of the website.
The Page Info menu offers four tabs and opens in the security tab. This tab lists if the website is storing cookies on the computer and if a password is saved for it in Firefox. This makes it way easier to look up a password if one is saved for the website. A click on the View Saved Passwords button opens the Password Manager of Firefox which displays filtered results for the domain name.

This new feature makes it possible to view saved passwords with four clicks. The old way of looking up passwords requested keyboard input to filter the results or an endless scrolling session to find the password without filtering in the list. Thatís comfortable and nice.
The Permission tabs provides access to site specific settings. Should images be loaded, cookies be allowed, pop-ups be shown or extensions installed from that domain.
The Media tab is more interesting because it provides access to a Save function. It displays all objects that have been loaded from a website which includes images and html files mainly. Previews of images are provided in the same tab and it is possible to save all contents easily to the hard drive by selecting everything and clicking on the Save As button.

This menu needs some improvement though. The files cannot be sorted although they are shown in columns. It would be nice to be able to sort by file types and download all images or mp3 from a website by selecting only those files.
