Newsfeed layout customization
It would be very helpful if the center column/right column boundary could be dragged by hand, or at least had a wider layout option. You could dynamically resize it. The newsfeed column length could also be dynamically resized. This would allow the user to maximize the information visible in the newsfeed if wanted--i.e. making it the focus of the browser page if need be. Also, the popups which appear while rolling over the newsfeed could be maximized to stretch to the left side of the browser when they open, so the user could maximize the information visible in those as well. Those three changes could, in my opinion, make the new facebook UI newsfeed features more bearable. Thank you for your diligence and hard work on this public service you are performing.
While I appreciate the "stretch the layout to full screen width" feature under BetterFB's "Layout" tab, it ends up being too wide. I'd like see a field where we can enter our preferred width.
The "Layout" options allows us to select what we would like to see, or hide. But we cannot change the order - or the position - of items in any column.
It would be excellent if we could drag/drop items to change their order, or even move them to a different column completely.

Yes, this! This is just what I came here to request, myself. Full screen width leaves a lot of dead white space on the right, especially since I hide the chat dock and news ticker and such. It'd be great to be able to enter a desired percent width.
