Go to www.firefox.com and install a fresh copy of Firefox. THis will solve the problem. You can also try the safe mode of Firefox too..

Set homepage


If your question is .... how to make google.com as your home page on your browser ... here's how:

If you're using Internet Explorer browser, click on theTools (menu item) ... and at the bottom of the drop-down window, click on "Internet Options". A (smaller) window will open, showing under the General (tab) ... your current home page. Simply edit (or add) into that (top HOME PAGE) window,www.google.com then, click on APPLY at the bottom right corner.

Now when you open your Internet Explorer (browser), it will go directly to google.com.

If you use the Mozilla Firefox browser, you'll want to click on the "Tools" menu item. A (smaller) "OPTIONS" window will open. Click on "General" and you will see the (current) STARUP Home Page URL address. Simply add/replace that with www.google.com and click on OK.
Now when you open your Mozilla Firefox (browser), it will go directly to google.com.

Tip

Computer mouse tips


Using the mouse in combination with the keys on your keyboard can give you several different advantages and help improve your overall productivity on the computer. Below are just a few examples.
Almost all text editors
Many text editors or programs that allow you to edit text support the ability to quickly highlight all or portions of text by using the Shift key and the mouse. For example, move the cursor to the beginning of the text you wish to highlight, hold down the shift key, and click at the end of the text you wish to highlight. If supported and done properly this will highlight all text in-between the points you clicked.
Microsoft Word
In Microsoft Word holding down the ALT key on your keyboard while clicking and dragging your mouse and you will be able to drag a box and highlight only portions of text and not the whole line.
Windows Explorer and many other file
Microsoft Windows Explorer and other file managing programs allow users to select multiple files by holding down the CTRL key and clicking each file or folder they wish to select or hold down the shift key and selecting multiple files at once.
Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and other browsers
Users who visit a website with tables and wish to only select one row of that table can hold down the CTRL key and click and drag on the text in the row they wish to copy.
Mozilla Firefox users
Mozilla Firefox users can also hold down the CTRL key and individually click on each cell they wish to copy.

Mozilla Firefox safer and faster than Internet Explorer?


Internet is a very useful and adaptable program used for viewing the web, and over the years companies have come up with many improvements. But I find that there is no update available for Internet Explorer that can come anywhere close as Mozzila Firefox is.

Mozilla offers many great experiences and benefits. There are many reasons why you should use Mozilla, one being their constant support and dedication. This program is absolutely free, and will not harm your computer.

Mozilla's work includes:
  • Making software that allows everyone to see the Internet.
  • Empowering people to do new and unexpected things on the web.
  • Fostering a healthy ecosystem for open source and free culture communities.
  • Creating learning oppurtunities for people around the world.
  • Protecting individual's security and privacy when they are online.
Mozilla doesn't just offer and safe and well responding Internet Browser they also offer many applications to make your computer safer and faster.
If you would like to read up on this please visit:

Some evidence of Mozilla's hard work shows in the viewing of many websites. For example in these next two pictures you can see a difference between Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.

Mozilla Firefox:

Internet Explorer:

Mozilla Firefox is overall safer, faster, cleaner, and even more adaptable and easier to use. Mozilla Firefox is adaptable with every website and offers everything and more that the normal Internet Explorer offers. Download Mozilla Firefox and I promise you that you will NOT be disappointed.

I have two questions for Milton if possible:both on computer glitches, two different computers


For the Optiplex:
Did you buy the exact same motherboard for the Optiplex? When you put the CPU in the motherboard, did you apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste on the CPU and Heatsink? If not, that is like metal touching metal and it will short out or get hot and shut off. I don't think it's your drive. When the Thermal Paste around the CPU and HeatSink has dried up or is too thin to keep the unit cool it will run hot and shut off.

LOL, I hate Vista too, and Windows 7 is just a tab bit better, so now they will be forcing Windows 8 on the general public in the coming months. Very few companies, government entities, school systems, etc. bought into Vista or Windows 7 and nobody but consumers buying computers at retail store will buy into Windows 8 unless it is as good as Windows XP.

For the Acer Desktop if you are using Outlook as your email client then Internet Explorer might be having an issue. One common fix was to install Mozilla Firefox, Opera & Google Chrome internet browsers. When you install Mozilla Firefox set it as the default browser, you can always go back and start Internet Explorer and set it back as your default browser. Then try opening your emails and clicking the links and try your usb flash drive.

Try downloading Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Google Chrome. Unlike Internet Explorer they install in less than 5 minutes and they are faster and safer than Internet Explorer.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "Download Mozilla Firefox" (without the quotes). Download and Install Mozilla Firefox from Mozilla's website. Do the same thing for Opera and Google Chrome.

I've put the links of each one below so if you like you can just click on them to go to their site to do the download and install.

www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/

http://www.opera.com/download/

https://www.google.com/chrome


For the Acer, try turning off User Account Control if installing the other browsers above did not solve the issue.

Below is a link that will show you how to do it.

  1. Open Control Panel.
  2. Under User Account and Family settings click on the "Add or remove user account".
    disable_uac_3.gif
  3. Click on one of the user accounts, for example you can use the Guest account.
  4. Under the user account click on the "Go to the main User Account page" link.
    disable_uac_4.gif
  5. Under "Make changes to your user account" click on the "Change security settings" link.
    disable_uac_5.gif
  6. In the "Turn on User Account Control (UAC) to make your computer more secure" click to unselect the "Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer". Click on the Ok button.
    disable_uac_6.gif
  7. You will be prompted to reboot your computer. Do so when ready.
    disable_uac_7.gif
In order to re-enable UAC just select the above checkbox and reboot.

Keep getting out of sync warnings on fb game Farmville& cityville


Good Day Dilles!

It is an internet connection issues. The page is loading too slow. It is better to disable your Firewall settings.

I do recommend you download and install the latest Adobe Flash Player. If you want to be more satisfy playing Facebook games, I do recommend you use Mozilla Firefox when you access your Facebook account.

To download:
Adobe Flash Player, go to http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
Mozilla Firefox, go to http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/new/

Hi, my mozilla firefox is so hard to open , and it takes minutes before it opens .. what will i do ?


HI,

Sometimes it depends on your internet connection speed, if your internet connection is slow, even if its not Mozilla, it will take time for a browser to load up. If it's really your Mozilla browser, you can try to uninstall and reinstall it. Click on Start > Control Panel > Uninstall a Program and then look for Mozilla Firefox then uninstall it, restart the computer after, then Open up your Internet Explorer and on the address bar, type mozilla.com and from their website, download the Mozilla browser again. You can try to download Google Chrome as you alternative browser.


Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...

When I go to download adobe or anything the computer shuts out of internet explorer, then when you click on the internet it says restore session. What is wrong with the computer?


There's nothing wrong with the computer. But I'm suspecting that you have a corrupted Internet Explorer. Try to optimize the browser by deleting the Cookies and Temporary Internet File. Please follow the steps below:

1. Run Internet Explorer
2. Click on Tools > Internet Options...
3. Click the Delete button under the Browsing History.
4. Select Cookies, Temporary Internet files
5. Close and re-open the Internet Explorer

If same problem occured, try using Mozilla Firefox. If the issue would be resolved in using Firefox, then the Internet Explorer is corrupted and needs to be updated.

Have a great day!
