Re: Firefox wont start on wife's user

Setting up a new profile did the job.

Re: Firefox wont start on wife's user

Re: Photo age experts ?

Moral of the story: It's much easier to photoshop in sepia, but you can't hide from good forensic analysis!

Re: Item Read marker

Well, I've noticed it happening to me today and I'm using Firefox.

I've just checked using my Firefox. All links are turning (and staying) green as they should. Tried clearing your cache and having another look?
