  • I have found it a very useful site and have seen a lot of what he reports verified in due course.
  • It was also reported on Ghacks a couple of days ago http://www.ghacks.net/2016/07/28/microsoft-removes-policies-windows-10-pro/
  • Replied in One more thing
    I hope that is not a new feature of v18. I have been running Mint Mate for a few years and I have always been able to restore application windows after minimising them. I have part of the bottom ...
  • I've just installed RawTherapee 4.2.1 into a separate folder on my Windows 7 PC and that does not give a colour cast for the OP's file.
  • I get the same colour cast for this file using RawTherapee 4.2.976 on Windows 7. However, it looks fine in RawTherapee 4.2.0 on linux mint. There is no colour cast while viewing in RawTherapee ...
  • I got a very similar result to this when I tried some raw files from my EOS 7D2 with an earlier version of Raw Therapee. This was not long after the 7D2 had been released. When I had another ...
  • Replied in login change
    Have you changed any browser settings related to cookies? Perhaps to delete them when closing browser, or installed an add-on which does so?
  • I have been using PaleMoon for a couple of years and really like it. However there are some websites that throw up incompatibility issues because they are explicitly testing for specific browser ...
  • PaleMoon has its own fork of Adblock, called Adblock Latitude: https://addons.palemoon.org/extensions/privacy-and-security/adblock-latitude
  • Further investigation says that Firefox is not going to become a Chrome clone... http://www.ghacks.net/2016/04/13/firefox-chrome-clone/
  • When I want to bookmark a page, I have the bookmarks displayed in the sidebar. I then click on the page's tab and drag it to the required bookmark folder in the sidebar.
  • I install and update Pale Moon on Linux using the pminstaller.sh shell script available at: http://linux.palemoon.org/download/installer/
  • Press Ctrl and click and hold mouse button1 to select a rectangle. There are other options in Edit -> Select. File -> Screen Capture. [Using FastStone Image Viewer 5.5]
  • I didn't quite manage to read all the comments before the glare of the white made me switch back to black!

  • Does the recent announcement that Cortana will be appearing on the Win10 lock screen, mean that "she" (AKA Microsoft's servers) will be listening to everything happening in the room, whether ...
  • Very interesting and shows the windows 10 privacy issues are even worse than I thought.
  • They only do it for the attention. Put them in the ignore-list and best not to respond to them. There are probably less of them than there seems, with a bunch of sock-puppet accounts to try to ...
  • It seems that adding the advert to IE in the latest updates was not enough for MS. Judging by this thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/technology/comments/4a0asv/warning_windows_7_computers_are_being_ ...
  • However, IE is so tightly integrated into the Windows OS that other non-MS applications can and do use it to access the internet. So, even though you not using the software directly, unpatched IE ...
  • I notice that because KB3146449 (which adds the Windows 10 upgrade capabilities to IE11) is integrated into KB3139929 it does not appear separately in the Windows Update history list. Therefore it ...
