Live CD was off system for a while. I had firefox error reporting on and gave them all the info they wanted at each crash. When I did a reboot of LIVE CD some files were in download buffer that said they had been installed so I removed them from buffer, I had not ask for any downloads except the purple apple backround which was also still in the download buffer.
I have not had a firefox crash for awhile even though I do same things I did before that caused a crash?????????????????????? I should have wrote down what was downloaded but I didnt.
Even though the Road Runner service can download at 1.4meg bytes per sec most puppy sites dont come close on any of my systems and some sites, like when I tried living water only did 43k bits per sec and said it would take hours???? In those cases I dont download until I am sleeping and hope when I get up it made it.
My road runner service pegs the meter on the speakeasy internet speed test site.

So if I dont come back quick it may be a slow download is being put off till later.

(edit) the, mirrored on dokupuppy, site did a average of 270k bits per sec I can wait for that.

Opera is great. Try it and you won't be disappointed. Wink But get the latest version (9.26) which has all the goodies like Speed Dial (quick access to up to 9 pages), a thing without i can't live anymore. Razz

I agree that Opera is Good Stuff. I'm on 9.24 and that version does have speed-dial, so there's no need to restrict yourself to 9.26.

@earlytv: Did you try reinstalling firefox pet that ttuuxxx had mentioned?

I guess I should have just kept seamonkey as this works flawlessly on all my machines.

I will let you know when I have an update or fix.

Thanks for your patience.

opera 9.25 did not work with only my home base site for Road Runner but Sea Monkey does. Site starts to load but never gets done and then screen goes white???
It took over nite to get the Living waters download with Opera and that does same only Road Runner site dont load or work???

Just tried http://www.puppylinux.ca/ttuuxxx/programs/Firefox+JRE+FL/firefox.pet
as said above and that download is taking to long so I stoped for now.

Anyone know of a super downloader for PUPPY, because right now its like I am back at 56k modem days?????? ttuuxxx gave me in the past a site for Inferno because it takes soooo long to down load and it went way faster or I never would have got inferno.
This system, WIN 98SE and puppy share. Even though WIN on speed test downloads 1/3 as fast as puppy the WIN sites use that speed so WIN can get from WIN sites, like Micro Soft, 300 to 400K BYTES per sec that means a 10meg file takes about 25 sec a 100 meg 250 sec a litte over 4 min. I have used puppy to get a WIN package and then store it in Win and that can go as fast as 800 to 900k bytes per sec. Some item are here before I release the ENTER KEY.

Yes earl the best multithread downloader for puppy is ProZilla
get it here http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=1850783116&t=5886
or if you want to try it straight away, load up living water and its on the desktop. bottom left corner of the screen:) I included that with living water because I was using it for sometime to download iso's you can specify how many threads with it, I usually do 8, so its around 8x faster. I have a 2MB/sec connection and basically most sites are around 128kb or less for iso's so I easily get 900kb/sec with it Smile
ttuuxxx

and the second best is here http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=2020660288&t=25973

First the good news!
Thanks DINGO I got ProZilla in its 3 chunks from your site and they downloader super fast. I now set it up with what it calls 8 sockets, 8 lines
and went for http://www.puppylinux.ca/ttuuxxx/programs/Firefox+JRE+FL/firefox.pet
from above. Four sockets went fast , three had errors with one retry and one had 5 retrys but all got loaded. I installed Firefox and all went well I could not get a crash, it even loaded my home page for Road Runner.

Now bad news? The Prozilla Icons for click and start were gone after firefox install???? I found a shortcut icon and put that on main screen but dont know how to get ORIG start icon back?
Road Runner site went down and FireFox never timed out it just tried forever to get RR? I hit stop.
Now the real bad news? Firefox now will crash again when it was super stable before???
I say again I am a hardware guy not software so when these things all happen I dont know WHY??????????? Could something have changed in FIREFOX when RR was down????????

WOW that was fast!

@ Prit1 .... Thanks, I've been looking for a current IceWM without all the bells and whistles.

Downloaded and burnt the Macpup cd.
Booted it on my HP Pavilion 512 megs ram 1.3ghz processor 2 hard drives and tekram scsi zip drive and relisys infinity scanner.
Anyway, scsi not detected.
Help icon on desktop and menu does nothing.
Firefox seemed to work well, did a self upgrade and survived.
Gxine played a movie in both windowed and full screen mode.
Xorg did not work with my ATI video card, but nothing else has either!
It seems HP never allowed for disabling the onboard video with this PC!
Xvesa working fine though.
I compliment you!
A very clean and well thought out layout that is easy to navigate.
To avoid the menu for some, a shutdown icon with a sub menu would be the icing on the cake!

@8-bit: Thanks for the detailed feedback. I really appreciate this.

@Kj: You are welcome. Ttuuxxx should be thanked for this work.
