question- FBD's epic "I'm a dumbass who doesn't know anything about comps" thread
    #363419 - 02/13/10 12:35 AM (6 years, 9 months ago)

if i'm running firefox, there's no reason to really keep internet explorer is there? i could just uninstall it right? i mean, is there any reason at all to keep it?

ok...i'm in a computer learning mood tonight.  i've got a post i'm goin through on the shroomery, and i got a question, what's new huh?

http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/10821767/page/20

It's done that for years, but hardly anybody ever notices. There's a lot of great Windows features like that.






what are some of the other features he speaks of? like keyboard shortcuts and features and whatnot?

sure, you will notice that change though when it prompts you to input stuff that it used to remember.  passwords and usernames mostly.

No clue man, don't know nothing about the business end of things with them.

What I do know is I downloaded both at the same time about 6 to 8 months ago.

At that time chrome didn't work for shit on many sites I visit, nor did it work with my magnifier that I use to read.

Now days the sites aren't and issue and they have lots of new addons that are cool.

But it still doesn't work with my magnifier exactly right, in time I think they'll get that fixed as well.

3.6 lol. thank you.

i just added on no script for firefox as well. what exactly is a script.

does it prevent scripts from running from sites you don't want it to (i.e. bad porn sites, pop ups, etc. etc.) and in turn, prevent viruses??? or help to anyway?

i can't look at videos either. it says i've got javascript off or an old flash player. i'm thinking it's java script because my flash player wasn't old like 2 hours ago. how do i turn it back on?

yes, my buddy (who is a hardcore IT guy) has that on his machines.  I think of it like a firewall.  Did you not read the description of the plug in before you dloaded it?  Google the name of the program and read the first few pages that come up.

i think, in the bottom right corner of your firefox window there will be an anti sign (circle with diagonal thru it).  click it and chose to allow scripts for that page.
