Is there any Freepers out there who run Firefox and Spy Sweeper?

I just purchased Spy Sweeper recently after a nasty spyware problem that even spybot and adaware couldn't fix. I have Spy Sweeper configured now to guard my startup programs, homepage, etc, But I don't know enough about Firefox to switch. I downloaded it and used it a couple times, works ok, but my Spysweeper is already configured for IE and I don't know if I have to buy a new license for Firefox.

I started using Firefox last week and I quickly loaded it on all my computers. Popups are stopped cold. Even the relentless ones on Drudge. Much cleaner interface and I like the tabbed browsing concept. Now I can load multiple sites all at once and quickly switch between them.

I have Free Republic, Drudge, Accuweather (with my local forecast), Google News and a couple other sites automatically load as my home page.

Firefox is free, and it seems in the last several months there's been "tons" of Freepers switching over, including myself.

The built in popup blocker and adblocker extension is worth the price of admission alone.

(I don't know anything about Spy Sweeper).

I use Stock Ticker, Spoof Ticker, Smooth Wheel and Copy Plain Text in addition to Popup Blocker and Adblock. As a SuSE 9.1 user (Santa is giving us 9.2), spyware and other malware is not an issue.

Your Spy Sweeper license should be for you computer, regardless on the number of browsers you run. You can run both IE and Firefox.

You should also be able to add Firefox to Spy Sweeper's venue. [I don't use Spy Sweeper, so I can't tell you how. But check your options or preferences. Also check the Spy Sweeper help file.]

I might have misread your question.

http://www.webroot.com/products/spysweeper-indepth/?WRSID=b06bf5823a88e01db02d6cb24d4443f0

Down at the very bottom it says it supports IE. If it's a program worth it's salt, it will find the critters that got onto the hard drive anyway.

I recommend Spyware Blaster:

http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html

It works with IE and Mozilla, and it's free, though donations are appreciated. Remember to check for updates weekly.

Firefox comes out of the box with certain defaults that IE lacks, such as the ability to block certain downloads, "drive-bys", for instance. It's not perfect, since nothing is, but there are those who have noted an almost instant reduction in certain problems. Give it another try.

I would like to install Firefox and went to site to download but it wanted me to choose between 4 options to download. Am much too illiterate to know which one to pick.

Have Dell Dimension 2400 with Cox Broadband, Windows XP and the Cox guy has me using the installed Internet Explorer.

Could any of you folks tell me which to download?

Thanks

I've been using another tabbed browser for several years. Tabbing is great for websites such as FR.

I have Firefox and am slowing getting used to it.

My current one (Fastbrowser) has a built in computer voice 'speaker' that will read articles to me. That is great for long articles.

Firefox has a similar 'speaking/reading' capability through the extension called Foxyvoice (google it).

Thanks - now to get it installed. I downloaded it and they wanted me to close all running programs but when I tried to it threw me off net.

Will try again, ignoring running programs and just pushing "next"

First, everyone needs this program (not an extension) that backs up FF or Suite or Thunderbird files:

http://mozbackup.jasnapaka.com/

Here's what extensions I use:

Adblock - (should be built-in, in my opinion)

eWebmail Color and Graphics (on the Compose page of Yahoo and/or Hotmail you can now set the font size and color, etc - doesn't do the smilies, however)

IE View (to open a page viewed in Firefox with IE)

Firefox View (to open a page viewed in IE with Firefox)

Statusbar Clock

Image Toolbar (pretty much a clone of the IE6 image toolbar)

Copy Image (copies images to the clipboard)

Image Tag

Popup Count

Titlebar Tweaks

ChromEdit (admittedly it's for the more advanced or adventurous user)

These are the three main places to find them.

https://update.mozilla.org/extensions/showlist.php?application=firefox&numpg=50&os=windows&version=1.0&submit=Update

http://extensionroom.mozdev.org/

Don't forget themes (skins) to customize the look.

Yeah, those pesky wife units are the devil to train- I made the mistake of being the cook around here early on, and I can count on one hand the number of meals Mrs. B has prepared. She's a perfectly good cook, too- just doesn't like to do it often.

Here are piles & piles of extentions for FF:

You're welcome.

I have to admit that my single biggest complaint about Mozilla is how things are spread all over the place, especially since every change broke many themes or extensions. Those links are the most reliable ones to me, so far.

I suppose while I'm here I should recommend my favorite theme to help new users get acclimated to Firefox:

IE5 theme for Firefox

It hasn't been updated to 1.0 so it's not perfect. With me, it won't note visited links. The theme maker says it's for up to 0.9 but it will install online. It will not drag into the Theme manager if you save it to the hard drive first.

Here's what it looks like on my machine:

JoJo's Browser image

There's another similar one that will look, I guess, more like XP if you select "large icons":

another IE type theme for Firefox

Some Mozilla types treat those themes like redheaded stepchildren, but I always view them as a good thing, especially for those around here who need a helping hand.

I really need to put some of this on my Freeper page.

Y'all hang in there....

I've been a totally addicted Firefox user since it was Firebird .6

I should get around and re-install Thunderbird email. I was using it for a bit, but started getting registry lockouts, which I mistakenly blamed on Tbird.

Lately, the only really frustrating thing is trying to find a freeware DVD decoder that will work with Media Player 9.

Kinda burns my chaps that I have the hardware (two Toshiba DVD players that fit in my laptops) and I gotta go out and drop a dime for additional software.

a freeware DVD decoder that will work with Media Player 9.

I'm not sure what you need. Several 'new' codec types have come out the last year or so and they cause havoc.

MSPlayer 9 should play DVDs. It depends on the coding used by the DVD.

I don't play DVDs on my PC, but I have various kinds of video files, some extracted from DVDs.

Codec AC3 and Divx 5.1/5.2 created some problems. I finally found the right codecs to install.

You might make sure you have the MSPlayer
options >> Player >> [first area, check 'Download codecs automatically']

[Cautionary note: I use RealPlayer. I tried RealAlternative because it was supposed to have less glut. RA messed up RP and made RP inoperative. Even after I uninstalled both and re-installed RP, I had problems. I finally had to back up to version 8 of RP, which I got to work, and then allow it to upgrade to 10.]

Without knowing the specific problem you are having with the DVDs, I don't know what else to suggest.

Check the free players under Multimedia at this link:

I have used the VCD program on my PC.

Types_with_Fist- hi, haven't chatted with you in a while... I'm no geek, being a DOS man at heart. My setup uses ethernet to connect to a DSL modem which has a built-in router, and went to work without a hitch.

Are you able to go to the FAQ's and other help on their site?

I'd suspect a conflict with settings between the PC and ethernet hub- mayhap Ernest or someone else has had the same problem.

Thanks!

We have a similar setup here; a hub, Ethernet. I'm sure it IS a settings conflict. Going into Firefox's options area I've tried every single selection and still get no connection. I thought, perhaps, that choosing Firefox as the default and then rebooting might do it. Anything more complex than that and I likely need more help. As far as I can tell IE has a more in-depth connection setup. I'm not sure how I ever managed to get that connected.

Hope all is well.

We're good here, my friend- Christmas came & went with nobody needing a doctor or a lawyer, so I regard it as a success.

As far as FF goes, I seem to recall not selecting either it or IE as "default browser." Mayhap someone more conversant with the dang thing will drop by-- in that link to increasing FF speed, there is a command you can enter into the address box that gives direct access to the configuration, but be warned, it's a bunch of code lines.

Unless you are running a proxy or connect via a proxy only direct connection to the internet is all you need. You don't even need networking installed to connect. See here for reference to the connection settings. If you have a software firewall make sure it isn't blocking Firefox. In general if you can connect with any other program like IE or a auto-update in an antivirus you should be able to connect with FF. Even at work where we have a corporate firewall direct connection puts FF on the internet.
