Friendly reminder

The new FireFox patch is out, I know I used to miss things like this if people didnt straight up tell me so gogo security!

It appears as though adblock hasnt been updated yet... err.. not that I use an adblocker or anything :thumbsup:

As long as this is a friendly reminder thread... You all should remember to reload your avatars. It looks rather ugly around here with all those messed up, blocky avatars.

This is like the 3rd firefox update in 3 months. And I don't really see any difference...

I don't think the thing in the top right corner works for finding new versions. At least, I didn't have anything up there to click this time around. I know I have before though.

it works but usually a firefox popup appears saying that there are new updates to download.

Also, don't forget to take the batteries out your fire alarms and to unlock your doors.

I'm actaully going to let mine keep getting distorted to see if it starts to look like anything after a while. maybe it will look like the virgin mary and I can sell it on ebay for mega-$$$ to some crazy casino!

or maybe I'm lazy and can't find a 'tar i like.

is firefox good? :confused: i have heard a lot about it but dont't have it yet
i think the users here have a SLIGHT preference toward firefox. it's not like there's been 3-4 threads just about firefox alone and it's tiny advantages over IE.

:p No, its really good and convenient. try it out, maybe you'll like it too.

speaking of firefox, i heared this today, and it helps me alot ! :

Speed up your Firefox browser on a broadband connection....

1.Type "about:config" into the address bar and hit return.
Scroll down and look for the following entries:
network.http.pipelining
network.http.proxy.pipelining
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests
Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a
time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once,
which really speeds up page loading.

Alter the entries as follows:
Set "network.http.pipelining" to "true"
Set "network.http.proxy.pipelining" to "true"
Set "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to some number like 30.
This means it will make 30 requests at once.

Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it "nglayout.initialpaint.delay" and set its value to "0". This
value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts
on information it receives. If you're using a broadband
connection you'll load pages MUCH faster now!

this works best only if youre using broadband, and for me personally it's already fast enough. 56k users would benefit from something like this the most, too bad there's like no difference in speed if you do this on 56k.

let me know if someone that's using 56k saw a big difference, that'd be great. i tried these steps on my firefox (with broadband) and saw like no difference =\ .
