about Direct Folders Jun 2011

This is an excellent program, which I've used for several years on Windows XP and now on Windows 7 64-bit. Very handy in many ways, and very much worth trying. There's a small problem with recent versions of Firefox, which I hope the developer will soon find time to fix.
