Help a newbie move from 0.8.3 -> 0.9.2

Hello! I've been using 0.8* for as long as I can remember. I've been hesitant about 0.9* due to lack of the "special" installer, but since columns UI has been released, I've swallowed my fear and upgraded.

Everything seems pretty keen, I've grabbed a lot of support plugins and components, but there are a few things that are majorly bugging me.

-- The properties window -- what happened to the "next" and "last" buttons? It makes manually editing tag info a serious pain in my arse- What is the recommended way to manually edit a large group of songs at once? I used to just crack open the properties window, type what I wanted, and click "next" and it would save as I go. Now I even have to select the field and manually hit edit, close, open a new window, etc.. pain.

-- The other thing is the new FreeDB plugin. It's useful, yes, but I like the old one much more. Does there exist a ported old version, or otherwise source? The new one just can't cut the rope fast enough.

-- On the mode of tag editing and sorting, is there anything in the works for a musicbrainz plugin? (seeing as freedb is apparently going south?)

Sorry for the nüb post, everyone!

Regarding the first question, foo_infobox is the component which had the "Next" and "Last" buttons.

rgr dat, thanks. I never really figured out which components were stock and which ones were added, I had just used the "special" package for as long as I can remember. There are so many plugins, I really don't have the time to sift through all of them. I hope a new special package gets made at some point down the road
