3/25    Hey, what do some websites pop up extra windows on your screen?  Is
        there any way to turn that off?  I'm using Win 98, IE 5.0
        \_ http://mozilla.org/products/firefox
           \_ Seconded.  Firefox is pretty much the only game in town nowadays.
              \_ what? Mozilla can also block pop-ups, and FireFox is beta only
                 \_ I'm running the previous version of Firebird, and some
                    pop-ups have been getting though.  What's the dillyo?
        \_ you're kidding, right?  have you been living in a cave for the past
           five years?
           \_ No I was just trying to bait you guys.  Pretty pathetic response.  -op

5/18    On my Win7 machine, I've been using a PuTTY ssh session to soda as a
        proxy for my FireFox to bypass my company's OpenDNS when I visit
        http://tv.yahoo.com and so on.  It has been working fine for a long while.
        However, in the past couple weeks or so, my FireFox would either take
        several minutes to load the page, or failes to load it after several
        minutes.  I haven't changed any settings on my Win7 machine.  Rebooting

4/19    My Firefox 3.6.28 pops up a Software Update box that reads "Your
        version of Firefox will soon be vulnerable to online attacks."  Are
        they planning to turn off some security feature in my version of
        Firefox?
        \_ Not as such, no, but they're no longer developing this version,
           so if a 3.6.x-targeted hack shows up, you're not going to get

2/5     How is Firefox on version 10, while I still have 3.6 installed.
        I wait for the X.1 versions and they never come out.
        \_ I'm also on 3.6.26.  It claims that versions 4 - 10 are all faster
           than 3.6.x, but do they use more memory?  Thx.
           \_ Newer Firefox versions use less memory too:

9/13    Blah blah android blah, ok other than the bootjack stomp of the
        phone marketing crap of this, does anyone know where to find the old
        Android TCL scripting framework that was used for automating
        and controlling desktop apps (like mozilla for example). Thx.

2/18    Why is there now Firefox 3.5.8 when there was already 3.6 a month ago?
        \_ Why is there Windows XP SP3 when there was already Vista?
           Generally companies manage patches for at least two levels of
           product.  -tom
           \_ I see.  So Fx 3.6 is more like a new version than an update to
              3.5.x.  --- OP

2/5     I like Adobe Flash. When written correctly, it scales along
        with your browser size. It looks consistent on every single
        browser. It is predictable. On the other hand, I'm not a big
        fan of CSS/HTML, which for the most part, look wildly different
        between browsers, and don't even work consistently or
        correctly at times. So why do so many people (like Steve Jobs)

        An unusual visualization of browser market share from 2002-now
        \_ 1. Is it coincidence that it looks so much like the Firefox logo?
           2. Is Chrome eating away Firefox's share?
           \_ Chrome's user base is pretty much the same user base
              as Firefox user base, and to some extent, Safari. The

12/2    IE usage down but still kicking the majority ass. Chrome is also
        rising up high, almost at the Safari level. Firefox isn't
        doing badly either. Sorry Opera, you had your chance.

        \_ As long  as Opera is the only browser you can use on your Wii,
           I see a fine long life ahead of it.

10/1    I am thinking of installing firefox on soda under my home directory.
        Will this make me a hozer?
        \_ Possibly. I wonder if we should have another VM for that...btw,
           I remember someone saying they're glad we're not on FreeBSD
           anymore, but last I checked, a bunch of our stuff is on FreeBSD,
           but our login server is not.
