  • Firefox needs my permission to continue.

    Yes, the shield is there.  Is there anyway to tell Vista that it's wrong?

    Have you tried disabling automatic updating? The Firefox updater requires full Administrator rights.
    Yep, I'd already tried that too.

    I had already checked the compatability tab to ensure it wasn't set to run as admin there, but I rechecked it and it's definately not that.

    I tried logging in as a different user and that didn't help either.

    I tried the US English version (I don't see how it's 'default', when I go to firefox.com it points me to the British version) that didn't work either.

    I also tried uninstalling firefox and then manually deleting every firefox folder I could find (bits left behind in Program Files (x86), AppData, etc.) and then reinstalling, but that didn't work either.

    Thanks for all the suggestions guys, but it looks like it might be time for me to go back to IE.

    I'd rather switch to IE 7 than do that Wink.

    Every time I try to run Firefox on one of my computers it brings up a UAC dialog and I can't work out why.  I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling firefox (more than once) but that doesn't help, and even when I try to run Firefox in safe mode it still triggers UAC.  Does anyone have any idea what's causing this and how I can stop it?

    Geez, why list things by hand

    Now that's a good idea.  Why did I never follow any of the links I saw to last.fm before now?

    Anyway, C9 group anyone?

  • Anyone been to Barcelona?

    I went earlier this year, but I didn't stay long.  I'd love to go back again just to walk up and down Las Ramblas a couple more times.  It's kind of hard to explain but it's the most entertaining street I have ever seen.  While you're there head up to the top of the Monument a Colon (I think that's what it's called), which is at the end of Las Ramblas, for a very nice view of the city.

    Edit: Here are a couple of pictures I took while there (they're big so I'll just post links).

    Doesn't matter what sport just post up the team you support?


    Sport: Football (proper football, you know the one where you use your foot)

    Team: Millwall FC

    Only one?  That's way too hard to pick Sad.  Just including the teams that I actually go to games for:

    Rugby: Reds, Wallabies
    League: Broncos, Maroons
    Cricket: Bulls
    Soccer: Socceroos

    And a few other teams I support just because I couldn't resist:

    Soccer: Arsenal (long time supporter, not just now that they're "an easy team to support")
    AFL: Lions
    Basketball: Bullets

  • What are YOU listening to?

    I'm currently listening to an auto-playlist of all music on my computer (on shuffle).  It contains: classical, jazz, rock, metal, rap, hip-hop, pop, dance, trance, soundtracks, etc.

    Last few tracks:

    Tool - Forty six and two
    Four Seasons - Oh what a night
    Ramstein - Engel
    Rage Against the Machine - Killing in the name of
    Kill Bill Soundtrack - Battle without honour
    Black Eyed Peas (feat Jack Johnson) - Gone Going
    Redgum - I was only nineteen
    Moby - Body rock
    John Farnham - A touch of paradise
    Paul Simon - Loves me like a rock
    Green Day - Time of your life

    And after seeing it mentioned in this thread I'm going to pause my autoplaylist once this song is finished and listen to Delerium - Silence since I haven't heard it in ages (it used to be one of my favourites).

  • Does ReadyBoost really boost performance?

    SecretSoftware, maybe you're thinking of the hybrid harddrives?  ReadyBoost has no affect on when data is written to the hard drive.

    The hybrid harddrives are intended to save power as well as improving performance, but ReadyBoost is purely about performance.

    To answer the original question, I've had my USB key plugged in permanently (with 2.5GB for ReadyBoost) so I can't really judge how big a difference it makes, but what I do know is that my 2 year old laptop is running faster now than it ever did under XP.
