Hello everyone - i experienced an inability to connect with the internet after upgrading to the latest firefox-version and the same happened to a couple of other users here on Lanzarote. The Internet Explorer still worked "fine" (the word "fine" shouldnt be used cause after working with firefox for a couple of years the work with IE is like an essential downgrade...) and in Firefox the warning "internet connection does not seem to be working" appeared. Turning firewalls off didnt help (this was suggested by the official firefox-help-site), only deinstalling the browser and installing an earlier version.
Somebody experienced similar things and/or knows whats behind this?
Firefox includes a built-in spellchecker that lets you know when you're misspelling words in an email or other text entry box. But what if you want to spellcheck an email that's already been sent or a web site that's already been published. In Firefox it is simple......Type
sundiro50: They're actually JellyFish match files. Basically they contain game notation so that you can open and review the game on a software that supports that format. http://www.paulspages.co.uk/bgreplay/
sundiro50: Well, i had never heard of a .mat extension so i looked it up
There are 3 different types, so i guess it would be handy to know which one we are dealing with.
The most common one is a Microsoft one (Microsoft Access Table = MAT), and to open it you need Microsoft Access. You can download a free 60day trial of it, BUT it should be part of Microsoft Office (do not know about 2003 version).
When a person downloads Backgammon games from the archive they end up in a .mat extension....I am having no luck opening these files. What happens is : I am getting an error saying: not a valid shortcut....I am running Microsoft Office 2003,....and have tried what I know, but with no luck,.....Any help forthcoming will be greatly appreciated....... :-)
Binabik: To be honest i have not checked Well not like FF anyway. That is the big thing with FF is that is it so resource hungry. As long as you have plenty of RAM you can not beat FF really. Is all i can say is try it
MadMonkey: Was it your own birthday? HAPPY BIRTHDAY! :O) Thank you Ian - does Prism also need a lot or RAM? I had decided against Chrome because in addition to the known issues with it, my computer started having hot flashes - lol - the screen would start to flicker and that made me nervous - crashes have been known to occur with chrome....
Binabik: Sorry i did not reply yesterday (Birthday drink and everything lol).
Did you try Exporting your Bookmarks to your Desktop and importing from there ? If it is speed you are looking for Mozilla do a Application (that is also a Firefox Add-on as well) called Prism. It is faster than any browser as it runs a website as an application as such (for want of complicated terms lol). You get nothing else apart from the webpage, no Add-ons, no forward/backwards, Bookmark buttons etc..etc....
If you fancy using it, i would suggest downloading the Add-on version into Firefox. Once installed, just click Tools on any website you use (or spend a lot of time at) and in the pop-up menu you select 'Convert website to application'. Give it a name when the page pops up, and it will create a Icon on your desktop.............. instant speed lol
All this said, try to get the Bookmarks sorted as well lol
I just installed Chrome and for BK I love it, it's fast for me. I tried to import my bookmarks from FF and it doesn't work. I looked on Chrome for help and this is the message: Some users have resolved this issue by editing their registry. Please note: Editing your registry can be potentially dangerous. If you're unfamiliar with the Windows registry, make sure you have the guidance from someone who does." I'm not comfortable trying that, so, can I just copy/paste my bookmarks? Would the copy/paste hold when you switch from FF to Chrome?
rabbitoid: I can not say i have my friend, if anything 3.5 is faster
Have you cut the number of posts it displays on a page down ? or as you say, maybe it is linux.
One thing i have found that i use is Prism (made by Mozilla labs as well). Basically, it turn any website you visit, into an application and runs it like that. Much faster. The only downside is you can not use Add-ons with it lol.
Oh, and i do not know if it will work on linux eiither
Well i am sure we all know what was happening 40 years ago, yep, people were walking on the moon I get lots of great stuff from all over the web to do with computers and technology. I got this today, that i thought i would share
Ever fancied being on that first flight to the moon ? Well, take a look at THIS little journey awesome....
coan.net: The only add-ons I use are Fasterfox and Safescript - the latter is now driving me nuts as it's become too complicated... Where do I go to wash the windows? I've used CCCleaner before, is that what you use for registry cleaner? Sorry, I'm mush when it comes to computer ablities.... I don't have a lot of RAM either - sigh...... Thank you all for your input!
Since my computer has been a bit slow, I called AT&T to check the lines, and they found to errors on the line. Then they had me go to speedtest.net and I couldn't find the map they said was there. So then they had me switch from FF to IE, and then I saw the map and ran the speed test. Everything was as it should have been. So, I decided to use IE and see how that was - BK is a lot faster for me now as are other sites. I wonder if I should delete and then re-install FF? Any suggestions?
Binabik: Diskeeper will almost never do a full defrag (only 1 fragment per file) because it's just not worth it. Defrag is usefull when your disk is so fragmented that permance suffers greatly because reading large files will imply running from one sector to another half way accross the disk. However, if when you have large chunks, there comes a point when it is more time consuming to move such large chunks around than the performance gains you may get from it. If you look at that log in detail, you'll probably find out that most of the resulting fragments are large and that few files will be spread accross more than 3 or 4 fragments (except, maybe, for really big ones)
I think this is explained in greater detail in the application's help but that's the general idea. Still, you can request a full defragmentation somewhere in the options, if I'm not mistaken...
When I defrag my computer, which I do at least once a week now, this is the message I get at the end:
Findings on C:
Diskeeper has completed a defragmentation run on this volume and there remain 1276 fragmented files and 3508 excess file fragments. (There were 4806 excess file fragments before the defragmentation run, and now there are 27% less.)
The average number of fragments per file is 1.03.
You should schedule Diskeeper to run considerably more often than it has been running to reduce the current fragmentation and maintain a lower level of fragmentation. This volume is moderately fragmented, with 50% of the total volume space available for defragmentation.
The number of excess and fragmented files never go down more than this - could someone tell me what's happening and what I can do?
Is Facebook really worth $6.5 billion? - Can this be because BrainKing now has a page there OR because Facebooks Russian backers agreed to pay $14.77 a share for Facebook common stock ???? I wonder lol
MadMonkey: The basefont element was deprecated in HTML 4.01, and is not supported in XHTML 1.0 Strict DTD. I think it's only supported by IE, though some browsers may keep some compatibility mode for it to work.
