testing Mozilla firefox

Loading thread data ...
Congrats on finally escaping the bondage imposed by Internet Explorer. I hope you will be pleased with Mozilla/Firefox. I have been using their browsers for over three years now.

Once you get the hang of the "tabbed browsing" feature, as well as the built-in pop-up blocker...you will wonder why *anyone* is still using Internet Explorer.

I converted a few months ago. I like that it's infinitely mod-able and customizable.

Now if I could get it to import the bazillion favorites I've got on IE I'd be extremely happy! After going to Bugzilla, I think there may be a bug but I'm not sure. Using Mac OS X 10.2.4.

Umm, maybe because it's bloody hard to get Java to work in Mozilla...??? I've used Mozilla for over a year, but have bben unable to get java going correctly... as have many, if you read the posts re this online... any ideas anyone?

Shoud be easy enough. From IE, you'll have to export them (Cmd-2, then File->Export Favorites), this will create an HTML file. In Mozilla, you can then do 'Manage Bookmarks', Tools ->Import, and import the HTML file.

I am unsure as to how it is done in Windows, or OS-X, but I assume that you can always find the exact file in which your old bookmarks are stored, and simply copy it into the directory where your new Firefox preferences are stored.

****** Ok. I'm not sure where this will end up as I've just finished installing the Mozilla firefox thingy you guys are recommending. This is my first try and it may to to 'e' or the group...... only time will tell.
If it gets to the group, I have a question. I can't seem to figure out how to browse to other newsgroups without subscribing to them. In IE it was easy - if not safe. Here I've hit a brick wall and cant seem to get to a newsgroup unless I subscribe...... help?
If this goes to 'e' - sorry. I've noted your reply to the S.E.5a and I have another Lindberg kit, unseen for many years, down at the bottom of the styrene cave. I'll hire a back-hoe and have a look at the contents of that box.
Later. cheers - Jim. [Go mozilla go]

See if you can get ahold of a copy of Knoppix. It loads and runs a complete desktop Linux system, from the CD-ROM (no hard-drive installation required). That way, you can play around with Linux, learning the file system, etc., *before* you actually do a "real" install.
I have actually prepared a "package" for Linux newbies, containing CD-ROMS of several of the "run from CD" live distributions. If you are interested, here is the manual I prepared:

Also, here is a good, brief guide, to Linux commands:

i don't use mozill for a news reader...i wouldn't use a web browser at all. i use newsx, a simple program taht hasn't been updated for 6 years but does it all. just search for nx201.zip, unzip in a driectory, drag the newspaper logo to your desktop and add your news server info. it will show all groups or one you type in. no subscription needed. takes 5 minutes to figure out.
