Speaking of FF apereance I just remembered skining it with userChrome.css, this is easy and fun way of customizing it's look if anyone wants to try:

EDIT: And it will work best to use with "Bricks for firefox" theme

Rob, arrived here via another thread...
Note from P1 that you haven't included WOT plugin yet

I recommend it, faster updates than mcafee SA

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3456

other than that, - looks good, crashwise, youtube etc Very Happy

Hi Aitch, thanks for giving this a test, [;ease let me know about any ideas or improvements. I did evaluate WOT (great concept), and I might yet still put it in. I opted for MF purely because of "Brand Power". I wonder would they both work at the same time...belt and braces?

I regularly hear from my users that this feature has saved them from all kinds of Teeth Pulling at the bank and problems with Phishing sites (they are so common nowadays), even if it trips my own personal website nowadays!

Yep, sure do & no noticeable hit on performance, AFAIK

My regular use is both, as they do slightly different things

WOT is more current/active/reliable IMHO

mcafee has more 'kudos' & the linked sites graphic is very useful, as is a direct link to whois,

Not sorted yet?,...... too much time & too many flame posts, I suspect..... Wink


Out of interest, I tried the latest firefox recently, to see if they'd sorted it - it crashed within 5 minutes!!


When not in puppy, using 'that other OS' I ALWAYS run Sandboxie for bank/paypal/email etc, & delete the sandbox directly after transactions

- it will force a re-logon to anything currently 'signed in'

You could recommend that to anyone still using it [that other OS] - especially people doing bank/paypal transactions or needing securer
[as opposed to secure - I don't think anything IS] emails/passwords,

& it also works with messenger/skype/SIP/p2p, or any other program you want 'secured'

I don't understand why it's not more recommended, it's so easy to use, [like puppy - delete on exit]

Hi Rush, its by no means "official" (the word doesnt really apply in Open Source land!). Would be interested to hear about the bugs youve encountered.

Still I think the flashplayer is no longer useful 1.6 is passe although it will work if there are no update notices fom adobe . I try to use it on the online go game site but the site requires upgrading and I try to use the newer version but they don't function . . the java applet doesnt work in puppy and when I use windows 7 it insists on updating and won't let me play on the site . So I go to the Cosumi site that supplies flash 5 and allows the play . I have downloadedflash 7 and version 8 neither will work with puppy . I use Lucid . Out of all the puppies it is the most reliable and I can use it in the usb stick form . I find that that is the best method for safety and security . I just save all my docs and should something gum up I just reinstall . I like the Frugal methos it is very versatile , All the other puppies are slicker and fast but they are brittle in the frugal form and sometimes won't load .

I have had trouble getting stuff to function on public wifi as the webserver will just disconnect and I don't know why . I run wide open on the net and prefer no antivirus as it slows down the connection . Still Lucid or Lupu are both getting older and more passe . All I care about on the net is the browser (no social media) I would like a puppy that can keep me connected with an office suite . I basically just use the word processor for most of what is needed in writing and seach for image copys and wiki pedia . Occasionally I will transfer files . I have no patience for spam ads or the like and will go without then suffer through too many ads .

I don't even use most of what puppy can do as I am pretty much a trial an error man I do use the 2 image makers but it is alittle clunky .

I find that all the various flavors of puppys confusing and hard to understand . there is just so much out there . Many of the fixes don't work . So what I do is find a stable verion and use that . My greatest frustration is with the flash player . I can't get a functioning version . Eversince adobe and microsoft upgraded everything screwed . I don't understand the constant upgradfing . Can't we just have 1 decent functioning system !

I am currently using shinobi's Lucid it is very stable and forgiving . My only problem is that the icons have a japanese script and though I have gone through all (.mo)'s that he stores the language locales on . Still the Midori browser keeps reverting . Even though the preferences are set and all english only is set .

I use the Midori browser as a the webserver browser to hold the wifi and then I use either firefox or seamonkey to brose with duckduckgo as my generic annonymous browser . I don't save any history or allow updates unless necesary . Right now I am unable to use the linux flashplayer . I do have dillo 3.05 but I can't get pasty the https part so I can only use it with http sites . I am not any good at the coding stuff . I use the geany cut and paste method I really don't know how to use the terminal .

My computer is a 10" Dell INSPIRON notebook with intel core 3 . I tried to use the the newer HP note book with windows 8.1 but i screwed it up tying to load a usb puppy on it Now it only has the terminal screen .

Any feedback would be appreciated . Ivebeen wtih puppy since 2008 .
