    Changing statusbar default display. Previously, the statusbar displayed (by default) "FoxyProxy: " as well as the FoxyProxy icon. Since color-per-proxy was introduced, it doesn't make much sense to keep the "FoxyProxy: " text there by default. Mode can be inferred from icon color. Moreover, many addons are trying to minimize their statusbar footprint these days. It makes sense to remove this default option. The new default is to display just the FoxyProxy icon. You can restore the text by clicking Ctrl+F2 then Global Settings tab-> Indicators->Show mode (text) on statusbar. This does not affect upgraded installations; only new installations.

    Version bumps; officially dropping support for Firefox 3.0.x -- I'll see if I can bring it back later. The previous FoxyProxy BAsic release (1.7.4) doesn't work with Firefox 3.0 already due to the Firefox 4.0 porting efforts. Unfortunately, that release wasn't labeled as such so Firefox 3.0 users were automatically upgraded.
