Nifty, Did you fix something or is it the firefox browser ?

Discussion in 'BYC Website & Forum Feedback & Announcements' started by Guinea Goonie, Jan 20, 2009.

  1. I started using the "foxfire" browser because of the spell chicking that is already in it. Now I can get a red underline for chicking vs checking and know I have misspelled. One can also add to the dictionary, which I think is great.

    ANYWHO, now the back button works and takes me back to the index or recent posts AFTER i post a reply in the thread.

    IT DID NOT USE TO DO THAT with explorer.

    SO, is the browser or did you fix this ?

    JUST curious.

    It is your browser. Check the settings. Also some browsers are more sensitive to a double clicker.

    Nothing on our side, but that's pretty interesting! Does the fox somehow know that the previous page is a redirect page and simply skip it when hitting the back button???
     
  4. Well, I have always disliked the internet explorer for more reasons that I would like to go into. But, from the get go, with out messing around in the options the Firefox worked like a dream.

    One other thing. When you do visit pages within the BYC web site such as uploads it tracks the page at the top in a toolbar. All you have to do is click on the page in the tool bar and go right back to it WITHOUT losing the page you left because it too stays in the tool bar.

    I really do like this and use Firefox exclusively for BYC and the IE for the rest of the stuff.

    Why bother using Internet Exploder at all? With the IE Tab Extension you can switch to IE whenever you want within Firefox, to deal with those poorly written websites that only allow IE [​IMG] It's very simple to use and I only have to deal with Exploder now with two programs I use, Living Cookbook and TurboTax. Good riddance!

    Yes, I wouldn't be able to survive without AdBlocker.
