3/22    In Firefox, after I visit a page that requires a plug-in, it displays
        "Additional plugins are required ......" on top with an "Install
        Missing Plugins..." button.  When I click the button, it says the
        missing plugin is Macromedia Flash Player 7.  I click "Next" to see
        the license, and "Next" to try install.  Now it stays at the "Firefox
        in installing plugins..." dialg forever.  I tried in 1.0 several times
        before and now in 1.0.1, and the problem always happens.  Any idea?
        TIA.
        \_ What if you go to macromedia and manually download and install
           the plugin?
           \_ Hmm.  I go to the same page with IE6.0 on the same machine, and
              IE can play the animation fine.  Does that mean the plugin is
              already present on my machine?  Are plugins shared between FF and
              IE?
              IE?  -- OP
              \_ Okay, I go to macromedia and manually download and install the
                 plugin, and now it works.  Still wondering why clicking
                 "Install Missing Plugins..." doesn't work.  -- OP

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

10/2    Is there any Adobe Flash plugin for Firefox 3?  I go to a site that
        uses Flash and click "install plugin", then it says Adobe Flash Player
        is not available.
        \_ Uh, yes there is. Download and install it yourself if it doesn't
           work.

        of tabs open in another firefox window.  how do i combine them all
        into one window ?

3/4     Hi, what's the best free anti-virus software for XP?  What about
        anti-spyware?  Currently I'm using Active Virus Shield and Spybot.
        Thanks.
        \_ I've used: avg, spybot s&d, adaware, trend micro's housecall.
           \_ Does Spybot S&D protect Firefox?  It soulds like the injection
              feature only supports IE.

9/20    Is there a way in Twiki to have children inherit settings from a
        parent? I know there is a WebTopicEditTemplate which you can use
        for an entire Web, but what I want is to be able to have all of
        the children under a given topic automatically be populated with
        a template of settings when created. Is there a way to do that?

9/6     Firefox keeps your previous search term in the search box after you

3/4     So I'm new to AJAX and I have a few concerns. Let's say I include
        an iframe to a completely different website, say, one of the Yahoo
        or Google plugin (game, fortune) or something. Isn't it possible
        that we'll have variable name space collision between the different
        iframes? My understanding is all iframes and frame variables
        are shared but then again my understanding sucks.
