11/5    A hefty bounty to the first person to bring me the mutilated, rotting
        carcass of the idiot who comes up with or creates those stupid
        http://lowermybills.com ads to refinance your home with the buttons for all
        the states and the completely unrelated to anything refinancing
        background (snake, cellphone, palm tree, etc).  A not-as-hefty, but
        still substancial bounty to whomever brings me the mutilated body of
        the person who makes those stupid IQ-lowering ads pop up on 1 in 5
        page views.  AARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHH.
        \_ er, do we get a bounty for introducing you to the concept of
           blocking popups?
           \_ Sorry, by "pop-up", I mean "appear".  The google toolbar seems
              to solve my pop-up issues just fine.  I am complaining more of
              the stupid Flash ads that are a billion pixels high and animated
              and catch your eye as much as you try not to look at them.  Those
              bloody things make me want to strangle a freshman.
           \_ and blocking ads. try the "adblock" firefox plugin, works great.
           \_ As above, Firefox has a number of extensions that block this
              sort of thing. Adblock, Flashblock, etc.

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:

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

        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.
