I am having quite a few problems with the forum at the moment and I'm wondering if it's Firefox that's causing them.

I've been having problems logging on using Firefox and my hotmail account. Tried different ways of logging on, re-registering using different user names, started with Downline, then tried sillybuffer (don't ask) then Bob suggested another user name, daftbuffer? that did'nt work either, As you can imagine I'm getting reallly frustrated by now. Finally. on the advice of Bob I changed my email address, browser to SlimBrowser and user name to Barneybuffer and well as you can see it worked. Many thanks to Bob for your assistance.

OK, question for someone, anyone, I'm in the process of making a coal yard (don't see to many around these day's) and I wondered if any of you guys out there can give me some suggestions what or how i can either make or buy some sacks of coal. I'm doing the layout using OO/4mm scale?

Look forward to hearing from any one who can help. Thanks

Open a new thread on the subject Barney - there will probably be more readers (and responses) than here.

Martin has kindly sorted most of my problems Sol, it was to do with cookies. The one remaining problem, which has to do with new member registration, is being looked at as it also affects Martin.

It does seem Bob, that whenever software gets updated, some previous working functions, get mucked about and it takes the User to work out how to fix the pages, etc to work with the "latest & greatest".

I never seem to use all the extra 'benefits' that come with Firefox as it was working fine before the last update.

I think I might do the same Sol and then wait until I see how the update goes with other people and then install it when whatever problems there are have been ironed out.

Could you explain in simple- very simple- terms how to do this please.

Sure, Richard.

Launch Firefox.

Tools > Options >  Advanced > Update tab > Never check for updates > OK

Same for Firefox except in the final Update tab you uncheck the Update boxes.

Cheers, now done. FF used to be such an easy browser to use- apart from it's glitches for me here, which I've more or less mastered-perhaps it will settle down soon.

FF is now V17.0.1 & appears to have fixed a few problems that some web pages found.
But DCCconcepts Home page is still out of proper working order under FF - needs some tweaking when Richard gets back from the UK I reckon.

Pleased to say no problems since I started using 'Slimbrowser'. Recommended by Bob.

I have swung back to the latest Firefox with the latest version Ron but still keep Slimbrowser up to date as a standby, just in case.

There you see Bob I've done the opposit, I use Fire Fox as the back up. I don't want to go through all that rigmarole we had last time. Oooh no I'm stick with what works. I hope your Fire Fox stays trouble free.

I'm very exposed here.  My IE 9 doesn't work as the .exe file is missing.

I can't download a new version as it sees the wreckage of the old version and I can't uninstall or delete the existing one.

I don't have a backup.
