Hi Swarfega,

Sorry, but no. You have to go through the Tools menu in IE8. I do miss that from IE7 myself as well. :(
 
what in the world were they thinking? Is it really that hard to make that feature automatic? It's the one addictive thing about firefox... It's crazy that IE makes it so difficult.
