I just had the strangest thing happen, something I really like and now it is gone. I was looking at some stuff in Google Images and when I clicked onto a pic link, the window that opened up almost looked like what has been shown on TV with Windows 7. The whole screen as taken over by an interactive menu that looked 3D! All the images were lined up in three LONG rows across and I could click onto a pic or area and move the whole thing from side to side. It was really cool and when I hit the arrow key to go back, it was normal. I then hit the same link and it too was normal. I don't know what was happening but I really liked what I saw. Any idea on what went on? I would love to have it back. Btw, I am running XP. Thanks.--Mark

I also want to say that when this 3d thing happened last night, it took over the whole screen. It was not limited to the viewable space within Firefox.
