    Death surfs with both.
    IE8 in Windows, Firefox in Linux.
    Hasn't really noticed any difference.
    Some menus in Linux FF don't render properly, but no real biggy.

    My AV finds nothing more distructive than cookies in Windows.

    How old the mistake is makes it less of a mistake? Unlike you, I care
    about people and posted this as a public service. All you want to do is
    pretend you're better than others and get into a fight.

    Just curious, what does a retiree like you need seven computers for?
    Bragging rights?

    You're an idiot. Anyone can get infected by clicking on what appears to
    be what you're looking for with a Google search. Have you always been
    this clueless regarding the Internet?

    Charging someone to do something for them is a standard business
    practice since the fucking stone age, moron.

    My real business is not computer related.

    No, they didn't. They "fixed" it by making it possible to uninstall the
    plug in from Firefox. Previous to that, it was not uninstallable.

    Letting people know about a vulnerability is caring. Lying like you do

    Oh? Please explain just how that happens using Window 7 and IE8 ok?
    Oh and provide real empirical proof like maybe an existing example. I'll

    So you make $14,000 per week charging for something that is free and

    That is not the point. Users that wish to use Firefox should be able
    to do so without any interference, users that wish to use IE8 should
    be able to do the same.

    What was the point to linking to old news?
