regarding your article... you could have just started FF in safemode..and reset whatever you wanted too: http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/Safe%20Mode - also you should consider adding hijackthis to your addon list. That never would have happened.
I'm lost. All this for just wanting to get on the internet! Wow!!! It takes up too much of your life. Soon you will have a button that opens your fridge and gets you a beverage and a snack! Heed this and DELETE 85% OF THOSE BUTTONS PLEASE!!!
hmmm - reminds me of the caller I had on the phone the other day. She managed to lock her password 5 times in succession over 20 minutes, every time I reset her. I asked her if she was using the new password I'd sent, "oh, I didn't need to - as soon as I started to type in my username it showed up with the password box filled in" (doh! that would be the old password saved on your machine - not the one you've just been reset to). I asked her what browser she was using and she replied, "umm? McAfee Safe Search?" (no) then proceeded to read out the list of add on tool bars on her browser. She had to call her external IT guy to come and delete the saved password - even though I sent her explicit instructions, including screenshots, on how to do it. She even asked me "what's a tool bar?" (one step up from the guy who asked me "what's email?")
The dark days of Internet browsing. I think my SOs parents still use about 5 or 6 concurrent toolbars. I typically remove them whenever I can but, lo and behold, they reappear the next time I use their browser.
I had about 6 when I first got my computer set up and it took me a week to figure out how to disable them....and it's a shame I (a 30 yr old) had to ask my Mother....and she didn't get a computer until I had been out of the house for several years...So behind!
Sure Cool idea; it just depicts the state of local servers that can TOTALLY let you down when searching for some particular info that maybe censored from certain regions i.e. "genie out of bottle" kind of info :(( but that maybe available on server in Sacramento but not on LA server and vice versa :)))
My dad has a computer set up for my kids at his house and they use IE, its sooooo annoying and worthless and never works, so i introduced my kids to chrome and im working on switching it over to chrome. Ya the kids will come crying when the whole(24') screen is covered in toolbars!!
This looks like my mother in laws PC. She calls me over to complain her PC is too slow and her POGO games won't load. Takes a rocket scientist to get them off the computer. Then she brings them all back and says "I never loaded them"
WOW Chris. I always thought extra toolbars slow the internet down and often bring spyware with them. In fact, I very well may have learned it from you... I've been a fan from when you were on TV on what's now the G4 network I think. You were always great. Was subscribed to Lockernome ever since. Nice to see you here.
so when you search on one search bar, does all the search bars look for the same thing? or do you have to manually search for them for each separate bars? This is a funny screen capture..! what's worst is not the amount of tool bars, but people spamming on commentary posts..!
I remember having my browser look like that back when the ad bar places would pay you to view their ads in the toolbar. I actually made some decent money with those as a high school student at the time. Now everything is Google AdSense and we all use AdBlocker Plus to block all the annoyances that are ads. No more toolbar crap here.
HA! HA! My friend, a church lady that lives in El Paso Texas, beats you by FOUR!! (24 tool bars!!!!) She said she needed them for the groceries coupons? I didn't even bother, I sent her strait to the local CompUSA.
