FYI both Chrome & Chromium retain page level zoom info even when the cache etc are cleared. This of course means that they retain data on both domains & pages visited.
IE8 seems o/k but I suspect that this is common with modern browsers.

For anyone wanting to test their browser:

1. Copy the address at the top of this page then zoom in to an insane level. Shocked
2. Take whatever action is necessary to clear the cache/history/cookies etc in your browser & then exit it.
3. Re-launch your browser and paste the address you copied into the address bar and visit it. If it is still large data is being retained and computer forensic scientists can rest easy in their beds. Laughing

Just tried this in Firefox 13.01 (which also set itself up to update automatically by default some time ago without asking).

I don't see any data manager under the tools tab, but this may depend on the privacy settings.

Rather unsettling is the finding that, when privacy browsing mode is chosen in:

Edit/preferences/privacy/history/custom

cookies can only be deleted manually, and one can't remember passwords in the browser.

Presumably, the domain data is forgotten when one unchecks the

privacy/history/Remember search and form history option.

Thanx Bigpup

Yes... wine does implement Force Feedback (FF) but not perfectly and my wheel is supported. The game I am playing also has a FF option. The wheel was working in non FF mode so I installed logitech drivers through wine hoping to get FF....with no luck. I down loaded a linux FF test utility and I think its basically saying FF isn't switched on in Puppy. Apparently any 2.6 + kernel should support FF. I know FF on my wheel works. I am no computer expert by any stretch of the imagination... but from my reading I think FF needs to be enabled in the kernel from boot. Does the module need to have FF enabled when created? I do not know how to implement this.

I am hoping someone here on the forum has a Puppy FF solution. I want to use Puppy not only because of its simplicity and speed and the fact it runs the software I want to use...... But mainly because its the only OS that handles my realtek on-board sound card perfectly....... on both windows and ubuntu (to a lesser extent) sounds snap crackle and pop...

Cheers

You could get libGLEW 1.5 for Lucid from here. http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid/libglew1.5

This is for GL so Xorg_High or a proprietary video driver would need to be installed (I am pretty sure anyway).

Thanks! Much appreciated. So it need that kind of graphic drivers.
I wonder if that works on a small Net book Smile Well future will tell.

Hi All

Is there a way to enable force feedback for steering wheels in puppy 528. I am running grand prix legends through wine version 1.5 (plays very well btw) but there is no force feedback available through my logitech momo wheel. Can puppy be tickled into giving force feedback?

Cheers

Maybe something here will help you.

Hi futwerk, I downloaded the third one of these backgrounds and used mtPaint to "invert" the colours. It looked really neat, and might be handy when icons are harder to see against a dark background.

Yes, it's rather disturbing that the domains appear on the list without any user intervention requesting special "remembering" of anything to do with that domain. I understand if a cookie gets "remembered" - at least I can clear those (or set the browser to reject all cookies anyway). But who decided that these domains should be retained in Data Manager?????

I'm glad you uncovered this flaw. Googling "data manager" suggests that early Seamonkeys should be free of this issue.

What use is clearing your history if every domain you've visited is shown and can't be removed?

I just looked at a different version of Seamonkey in my Slacko install, and tried to get rid of the data manager domain list by ticking the "clear private data" boxes one at a time. Each tick box would get rid of SOME of the listed domains, but even combining ALL of the tickboxes did not get rid of all the sites from the data manager list.

Then I found I can right-click those domain names in the data manager list, and it allows me to "forget about this domain" and implies that the info is stored because of "content preferences" that lets Seamonkey remember "zoom levels for each site" etc etc.

As you say, this is rather unsettling.

So this is SeaMonkey. Can one find same such directory
in FireFox too? If one have both SM and FF would then SM
save such info even if one only used FF and never activated
SM? I mean both being mozilla. Maybe I am too naive.

So I was dumbfounded when I happened to open the tab:

Tools/Data Manager

to see a list of domains that seems to include most, if not all, of the sites I've visited over the past several years!

Thanks for the tip. I just checked the data manager and can see the same massive history stored there.

So I then went to Tools / Clear private data and ticked every possible box and cleared them all, then went back into data manager and everything was gone, except there was an entry for “getpersonas.com” which seems to be something to do with a Firefox plugin or something???????

This is a bit disturbing.

And it seems that I cannot permanently set those tickboxes in the "Clear private data" function. It goes back to retaining the data manager list again every time.
