About the Video on opting out of the Windows 10 express install

Posted

When I go to the main Firefox screen, I frequently get notified of various things that I might find of interest, such as how to opt out of the Windows 10 express install. I am probably in the minority but I don't like someone reading to me via videos. I like to read things for myself, always have. Is there a place where I might find text with pictures instead of these videos? Plus I can print off the text which makes it easier and I could read it anywhere. I do suffer through a video now and then if it was something of major importance. However, my internet connection is unbelievably slow. Recently I had to change a part on my laptop and wanted info on how to do it. Of course, the only info I could find was in video form. An 8 minute video took 62 minutes for me to watch, that is how slow my internet connection is. The video downloads just a few seconds at a time. It took 4 times as long to watch the video as it did for me to change the part. And that's just another reason I avoid videos. I'm surely not the only person out there who has this preference.

Are these listings from a search engine? What one?

Question owner

It was on the main Firefox screen this morning. I don't usually pay attention to them because they are usually videos but I thought this one might be very helpful, if I could just find something I could read. I attached a screen shot of what I saw. I clicked on it and it took me to the video, resulting in my question here. I didn't search anything, it was just there when I opened the Firefox screen.

Ahh. That is the only 'ad' Mozilla uses. After a bit of time, it will change.
