It’s BA-ACK!

Or, more correctly, I came back to …

FIREFOXff

Regular readers know I’ve had numerous issues with computer browsers.  IE (in all her permutations, lastly 11), Chrome, Vivaldi, Ice Dragon, Blue Moon, ad infinitum ad nauseum…

I just cannot seem to get and use a browser without it eventually becoming buggy.  (and yes, I have and use security and anti-malware software!)

Most recently, I was utilizing Blue Moon, but it seemed to be getting slower, and almost every time I wanted to leave a comment on someone’s blog, I got this lovely game:

Select all images with a store front.
Click verify once there are none left.

and had to page through store fronts, trees, grass, rivers etc. until the software was happy I was a human being!

Sigh.

SO, I went back to FF, updated to the latest version, and we are off to the races!

Until the next time…

Sigh.

And, don’t even get me started on Windows 10!  I installed it (making security adjustments recommended by my good friend Borepatch, and others), and it has been working fairly well, for a Microsoft product.

HOWEVER,

Of late, daily, they attempt to download automatic updates.  My machine goes through the motions, and restarts a number of times.  Then, I get THIS message:

20161020_092952

And everything works fine until the next day, when it begins all over again!

Attempts to contact Microsoft have been met with automatic responses making reference to Windows 8 (which I have never had nor used), so it appears I am doomed.

It’s Groundhog Day all over again!

  1. You have certainly had your issues with browsers. The latest version of Firefox has blocked certain images for no apparent reason, so I’ve abandoned it & use IE for Blogger and blogging. I suspect we’ll see more, rather than fewer glitches as time goes on. But after the EMP attack, “blogging” will be reduced to “tales around the campfire.”

    I hope that’s a joke. 🙂
