Oh where oh where

has my Mozilla Fox gone? Oh where oh where can it be?

I opened a URL with a wav file in it this morning and next thing I knew Mozilla was hung up. When I went out of it and back in Id lost all my bookmarks and it was like Id just downloaded a new copy.

Thank goodness I have IE with my bookmarks and so forth. What a pain!

Sorry to hear it. I haven't had that happen to me (knock on wood). I have an extension to backup/restore my bookmarks, though, so I wouldn't be totally lost if it happened.

Wait a sec... When you restarted it, did it ask you which profile you wanted to use? You probably selected the wrong one.

You know what, I think you're just a Firefox jinx. As soon as I posted my last message, Firefox locked up on me and I had to kill it. I didn't lose my bookmarks or anything, though...

You are probably correct but why did that window come up at all?
I tried that URL again and when it hung up and rebooted and all was fine.

BTW remember I was getting a sound when I closed my browser even thought I had my sounds turned off? It was Secretmaker?

It deletes all your history and cache and cleans up your computer when you close your browser and has a banner blocker...spam blocker & popup blocker which I dont use.

Well, the banner, spam and popup blockers are unnecessary. Firefox takes care of the popups pretty well on its own and there's an extension or two to take care of ads, and ISP's are doing a pretty good job blocking spam these days. Clearing your history and cache every time you close the browser is just plain unnecessary and being paranoid. So, yep. I'd say it's just a waste of hard drive space and resources. It isn't needed...

I can't say that Earthlink does a good job of blocking spam. We must get around 75-100 a day to the levys email address. The only setting I can change on their end is to have them block all addresses that are not in our address book. We can't do that as Janice gets some from new customers and I am the webmaster for my ham radio club site (www.ircradio.org) and people sometimes contact me through that.

The only solution I have found so far is the Cloudmark Safety Bar, which does a good job, IMHO.

Im still sold on Yahoo. They've got the spam problem well in hand.
Only problem is when my DSL goes down there goes ALL of my info as well. Thats a bit scary sometimes.

Good point. I'd forgotten about them, since I don't use my Earthlink addresses for anything any more. I have complete blocking turned on for those. I only keep my Earthlink account around for dial-up Internet access when I'm on the road.

DSLExtreme's spam blocker hasn't gotten a single one wrong since I switched to them last October. It lets the right ones through, and stops the bad ones every time. Of course, I haven't given those addresses out to a whole lot of people, so the spam aimed there is still at a minimum.

SpamAssassin, which I run on my own domains (ldphotography.net, pioneergraves.info and decloedt.com) is excellent! I can't believe how good this software is. The only drawback is it runs on the server side, which means you have to have your own domain or somehow convince your ISP to use it.

I don't know what we run at work, but that one apparently does a great job, too. I don't think I've ever received a single spam message in the ten (?) or so years we've had email there...

In my experience, Yahoo and Gmail do a great job, too. I have a Hotmail account, too, but over there I have a filter setup to send EVERY incoming message to the trash, spam or not. I only have that account for MSN Messenger, and I only have that because it's how my Aunt and mother have chosen to keep in touch with IM's after they both left AOL.

Like I mentioned before, I have a lot of email addresses... Something like 25 or 30.

Honestly? Pretty much indifferent...

I didn't realize you were using it to free up hard drive space. How small is your hard drive? With about 130Gb free on my system, that's pretty much a non-issue for me. I just assumed everyone had a metric ton of hard drive space these days since storage is so cheap now.

I'll keep those server-side apps in mind. We're starting to get some spam at work getting through the exchange server.

That could be an option too.

I have heard that some places will not accept emails from Yahoo or Hotmail accounts due to spam. Anyone else heard that?

I can't think of any specific ISPs that block those, but I'm sure there are probably a few out there. It would make sense.

I guess I am...I don't remember anything about it!

(I was probably pre-occupied with trying to dodge my neighbor!)

...ok, found Cloudmark on the web..but it only shows a "30 day trial" without a price. What does this thing cost? Is it a yearly service or a one-time buy?

I don't remember where I read that the other day. Maybe it was a seller on eBay? I'm just not sure where it was. I do remember reading that, though.

Its $30, which I think is an annual subscription fee. It works great. It scans the incoming email and compares words, etc with a known spam database. If something gets through, you can click on "Block" and it will not only move the message to the spam folder, but it will add the message to the Cloudmark database so others won't be bothered by it.

Neither did I. I had to use Rob's nifty little search function to find the old thread. Looks like it's a spam filter for Outlook Express.

That's not too bad...after looking at that here and such, I thought I would look up Road Runner and see what they offer.

They DO indeed have some "security software", but...it is TOO much. It is not only a spam blocker, but also a pop up blocker as well as anti-virus and firewall. But, they say up front that if you are running an anti-virus (which I am..Norton) that you have to uninstall it. Well darnit, I am pretty happy with Norton and don't want to change...but I WOULD still like a spam blocker, ONLY.

I can't remember which app you use for emails. I'm not sure all are supported by Cloudmark, but you might want to check and do the 30 trial. Try it, you'll like it

I looked into Secretmaker and read the reviews about it. Not bad, and FREE. So I dled it and, in my case, had to turn OFF some of the "features", but I like the spam blocker. We'll see how well it does. Definatly need to read the directions with this thing though...there are things..like the "Windows Cleaner" that they tell you to turn off if you plan on installing anything on your computer! (I just leave it off). Still evaluating it, but so far, it ain't bad....

Hmm didn't read about turning off the Windows Cleaner. I do have a problem with Mozilla slowing way down when I turn on the banner blocker so I dont use that. Otherwise Im very happy with it.

I noticed that it did indeed slow down the browser and I don't have the pop-up blocker going! Not much of a problem normally, but sometimes I open up a LOT of browser windows and it doesn't like that much. Seeing as how I only really use it for spam, I just turn off the email program and the secretmaker and then pop them back when I am done.
