I just know you'll love it Bob....and if you don't I will kiss Simons bald spot, or Shell's * spot   ;D but do give it a fair go, before you make your mind up......I uninstalled it a couple of times in my ignorance.  ::)

seems good as far as browsers go, don't really see the big fuss, but your lookin at a guy that reinstalls 98 probably twice a month to clean out the bugs. So this means the end to spyware and annoying popups, no?

Got one question that rather annoyed my while ive been screwing with it for the last five mins, how do u edit the Bookmark list to accept your favorites directory? Probably something small im overlooking but its annoying none the less.

go to >Bookmarks< then >Manage Bookmarks< then on next tab that presents itself > Tools< then IMPORT

And load your most visited websites into >Personal folder< then you can have them loaded with "Tab Browsing" more you us it Bob the more things you will find out it will do

Popups ...what are them  ::)

It won't eliminate spyware if it comes with stuff you install, but you do have a lot more control over cookies.  What I like about Mozilla is that you get a lot of tools under the one roof, which you may have had to use several third party programs for with IE, e.g., Pop Up Manager, Cookie Manager, Form Manager, Download Manager, etc.  It's also highly configurable - more so  than IE, I believe, and once you get your head under the bonnet, you'll find lots more you can tinker with, if that's your bag.

One thing I can't recommend enough is the 'IE View' plug in for Mozilla, which allows you to open the odd web page which refuses to work in Moz, immediately in IE.  http://ieview.mozdev.org/

If you want something to virtually eliminate spyware, try Spyware Blaster.   :)

Simon,

Bobs from the other side of the pond, so it's a "Hood" I thought you knew we were seperated by a common language  ::

I pretty much do all that stuff myself anyway, i delete the cookies manually, some popups you want to view so i do that manually also, form and download managers aren't really relative either. The IE pretty much suits all my needs, what makes this better, as far as ive seen it would take me more time to import all my 150 bookmarks to this prog than it would be for me to just edit the favorites directory in windows. with as often as i reinstall 98 this prog would be more of a nuisance than a perk

I'm not quite sure what the problem you're having with Bookmarks is, Bob.  When you install Mozilla, it automatically imports your IE Favorites into a Bookmarks folder.  If for some reason it doesn't, all you have to do is import them manually via the Tools Menu (obviously first Exporting a copy of them to a convenient location from IE).  I have about 1000 Bookmarks / Favorites, and I've never had any trouble importing them into Mozilla.

 :)

on mine it didn't auto detect the bookmarks, i wonder why. When i tryed to import it would only let me import one at a time. I thought their might be some sort of mozilla dir that i could just dump them into but i didn't see one. mmmm i guess this is puzzling.

The problem with win98 is it gets dirty too quick. You test out a couple of progs off the net and the next day your machines running slow and your registry is cluttered up with crap. Its easier to spend 20mins and just reinstall windows every couple of months.

Fancy a 'Home' button in your Mozilla toolbar?  PC Pals then only needs to be one click away!

Check this out:  http://3rdhand.info/mozilla/home/

The only thing I would point out is if you are using the 'Modern' theme, you will have to re-select it after installing the Home button.

Browser Cache is set by default at 50MB, but you can set it to as much or as little as you want. You'll find the settings under; Edit>Preferances>Advanced>Cache. you can also manually clear it from that same area.

Or you can add the file [in my case C:\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\ADMINISTRATOR\APPLICATION DATA\Mozilla\Profiles\default\hf0nsl7m.slt] to the "predefined folders" found under the "Options" button in  "Emp Temp" software http://www.danish-shareware.dk/soft/emptemp/index.html


Now that is handy if you like to leave your PC nice and tidy after every session with two clicks of a button. Cleans out all your cookies also, so no need to run "SpyBot Search and Destroy" see "Program Options"

Me I ZAP the lot, all cookies, all URLs, All history items, and the contents of the recycle bin.


Not that I visit hooky site's you understand............it's a security thing  ::)

Here's another excellent plugin for Mozilla: http://reloadevery.mozdev.org/

This is just what I've been looking for to keep track of posts on Pals!  :D :D
Quote
The Reload Every extension adds an option to the context menu (the menu you obtain by right clicking on the webpage you're currently viewing) to reload every so many seconds or minutes the web page you are viewing.

This can be handy if you have a page with for example sports scores, news or stock quotes and want to refresh them automatically.

NOTE: The reload every feature automatically disables when ever you change the URL.
