Just had a problem with Firefox crashing out everytime I tried to insert an image into the post. It’s a bit weird as it was working only the other day. Anyway, a search found that the fault lies with Google Gears. Disabling it fixes the problem.

He believes any half-decent search should… return posts by most relevant first do proper searches based on the phrase you submit indicate which words matched the post […]
Having just created and submitted my first WordPress plugin, I thought I’d go through the process. And I have to say, WordPress don’t make it easy.
