    After I installed Firefox 1.0...every time I go on deviantart.com (which I use a lot lately) the site functions fine, apart from the fact firefox is screaming "ALERT: This document contains no data" in a window every 5 seconds even though, clearly each webpage is fine.

    Can anyone say how exactly you stop this annoyance?

    I might be able to if I could reproduce the problem. However, I don't encounter any such problem with Firefox 1.0 (Debian Linux build) here...

    Possible causes:
    • Buggy extension(s) (do you have any installed? Which?)
    • Modified setting(s) in prefs.js (open about:config and filter by network)
    • Strange network problem (HTTP connection terminating unexpectedly)
    • Improper Firefox upgrade (did you uninstall the old version first?)

    If all else fails, you could start a thread in MozillaZine's Firefox Bugs forum. Good luck.

    I heard about that one after my uncle went through some of the firefox source. That would probably be a tough cookie to fix. I don't have anything to hide as I've configured firefox to not do history but to keep cookies of certain sites (like here and UP and NC) but not stuff like eBay or Amazon.

    Hm, in FireFox 1.0, I got warned about it being mixed Secure and Insecure; I got this dialogue:

    [​IMG]

    But, the default is to warn you only the first time this happens. If you don't tell it to give you that kind of warning in the future right there, it won't ever, and there doesn't seem to be any place in the Options to turn it on. However, if you type about:config in the address bar and set security.warn_viewing_mixed to true (double-click on it to toggle it), it will give you the opportunity to get that warning again in the future. (It's also a good idea to set security.warn_viewing_mixed.show_once to false so you get warned every time this happens).

    Interestingly, I refreshed the Yahoo secure login page a few times, and I found that it's not a secure/insecure mix every time; it only seems to happen about half the time.

    For some reason my AVG free edition has had trouble updating its the latest version (7.0) . I have given it program and server access in Zone Alarm, yet it still doesnt update, just says it cannot establish a connection to the internet.

    Any Ideas? Thanks in advance.

    The February 2005 issue of Wired Magazine has an article on "The Firefox Explosion" for those of you interested in a behind the scenes look at the alternative web browser.

    GMail also supports POP, you can enable it in the same place as forwarding: Settings -> Forwarding and POP

    This is all in the help somewhere actually:
    Server address: pop.gmail.com
    Username: youraddress@gmail.com
    Also, make sure your client uses SSL to connect (secure connection), gmail requires it!



    As for the software I use... well, heh:
    Browser: Epiphany
    Mail client: Evolution
    Chat: X-Chat and Gaim
    FTP, SFTP, any kind of remote directory browsing: Nautilus
    :p
