  • Replied in NoScript
    from time to time there are posts here singing a high praise for the NoScript - so it induces one to give it a look and to try - however, it turns out highly cryptic and non-intuitive to set up ...
  • sure - the short answer is price. Just compare 480GB in that new-fangled Intel with (recently increased) prices of RAM. Also, not many could afford a 512GB motherboards with sufficient RAM slots ...
  • Replied in endurance?
    yes, I agree - with one reservation: while it is possible (not easy, but doable) to relocate one's pagefile.sys from the OS drive (usually "C:") to somewhere else; with the hiberfile.sys I was not ...
  • Replied in endurance?
    hmm? when there is a need of swapping because the job at hand doesn't fit into the RAM available, I can physically hear the data being churned from/into a HDD almost constantly - and with such a ...
  • Replied in endurance?
    it might be laughing matter for some (many?), but when they say in that review : " The most significant functional difference between the P4800X and the 900P is the endurance rating, which has been ...
  • yes, it would, actually I'm or rather... I was inclined to go such a way (esp. to use it as a big RAM swap place); but then the 105% limit puts a rather high dam on this plan: jpr2
  • depending on your use: (1) if for whatever reason you're shooting "reach limited" then the a6.5k might be of somewhat better use;
  • ...then why there are various online solutions offered to help us in gaining a perfect synchronization? (on several of my PCs - all win7 - the clock is always either slightly ahead or slightly ...
  • yes, both NoScrip and uMatrix appear to be very non-intuitive. Perhaps they might be a super-tools in hands of some superhero, but for an average user... I'm afraid they can do more harm than ...
  • For me it is rather obvious that the simple truth - so aptly put by Montaigne into very few words, actually did predate him by very many centuries. It was discovered within multitude of different ...
  • the famous saying of Montaigne: "B etter is the worst enemy of Good " - or 'if it ain't broken don't fix it' = this very savvy adage has it idiomatic expressions present perhaps in most languages ...
  • this I simply don't know - never used anything close to "subscribe" on any of the FFoxen in my installs. the RSS-feed icon in question has turned out to be part of a much larger Classic Theme ...
  • Now... wait a minute - are you saying that the FFoxen above ver 50, say 56, were running for you on the 32bit XP? Or maybe was it 64bit XP? The last FFox I was able to run on XP was ver. 12.0 :( Quercy
  • Created discussion thread Q: how to get rid of the podcast icon?
    how to get rid of the podcast icon from the browser's address bar? There is noting with the "podcast" in about:config. Also, searching the Net brings only recipes how to delete it from one's phone. ...
  • indeed, THAT was exactly the update setup state of my 56.0.2, and yet it got itself surreptitiously updated to the 57 while not even being powered :( so, either a SW bug of theirs, or breech of ...
  • Anthony, I did install and so far have a success with the CyberFox (v. 52.5.0 - their latest), not a bigger memory and CPU hog than the FF 56 - in all appearances quite a bit less so. The CFox has ...
  • yet it'd be only logical to expect that should the option: "ask but not install yet without user's expressed decision" be checked ON, then the users could rely upon that such their decision will ...
  • in all fairness... there is a possible niche (no idea whether it might be large or small) - for some of us who like the agility and a quick-footed response of chrome clone searches, yet can't ...
  • Eric, do not blame yourself. In all probability your settings were correct: "tell me about update but DON'T INSTALL". Few days back I did install the CyberFox (ver. 52.5.0) in order to see how well ...
