I am trying to secure my WRT54G Linksys router. Someone said I have to go through my browser, then enter 192.168.1.1 and this would bring up a page where I could change my password of my home network. I can not get any page remotely like that up. Right now, my home network is insecure. I checked it with my phone and it is wide open.

How do I secure my network? FireFox is my home page.

I have added my language in the options and set it as preference, and checked off " check my spelling as I type" , but I KEEP getting the English spelling-checker when typing on a certain forum. And I am typing in Dutch, so it is very hard to read with almost every word underlined.....

So, I cannot set it to my own language, and I cannot turn it of completely. Either one would be great......

I have been loolking for a way to post that this question concerns WATERfox, not FIREfox, but somehow there is no separate place to do so......

Expressing my freedom of speech, I disapprve of same-sex marriage. Should I stop using a company that doesn't allow its executives to express their views?

I certainly do not believe in discriminating anybody. Anybody, whatever their views. I would strongly object to a homosexual being discriminated against as a person. However, I do not believe that this small section of society needs particular protection - indeed their views and wants are more than just taken into consideration. They become part of the defining stance of political correctness and woe to anyone who dares have a different view. People with Jewish, Christian or Islamic principles are literally spat upon. Doesn't speak well of the 'tolerance' of people of different opinions. My view, which I believe I am entitled to, is that homosexuality should certainly be allowed and not homosexuals should not be discriminated against. However, it is an abnormal, hedonistic activity and hardly to be praised or set out top be the same as a normal relationship. That is my view. It was also the view of your brave co-founder who has been hounded out for his opinions - in the 21st century. Therefore, having such unacceptable views, should I and the other 2 billion Jews, Christians and Muslims be required to stop using your organisation?

I will no longer support Mozilla and your products, the best browser out there, but you hire an anti-gay CEO. When every other company is moving forward human rights, you are going backwards. Next thing we will hear is that your gay employees that are married were fired. Shameful!

you know that now Chrome users is more than Firefox. Does Mozilla scrutiny to know why users more migrate to chrome from IE and even from Firefox? it is better to launch a poll in mozilla's website and get information about reasons of choosing browser. i think that the most reason is faster running and faster browsing.

Sometimes when I am about to click on a link, suddenly there is a pop-up box offering all the link details, which I don't want, and which is extremely annoying. It invariably obscures the link and prevents me from clicking on the link until I move the mouse pointer again, Trying to read an article in "The New Daily" for instance, is particularly annoying. Is this the fault of The New Daily or is it something to do with Firefox? I would be extremely grateful if you could show me how to turn this feature off.

Thank you guys! Wrinkly2

As the LGBT free to choose and express their own lifestyle, the new CEO Brendan Eich should be free to choose and express his own personal stance. He deserves to be the CEO. He has the skills. It is completely intolerant to pressure him to step down as a CEO due to his private and personal donation to prop 8. It is not Mozilla's money.

This tolerance-by-force thing has become anti-productive and un-American.

I have Windows 7 on my gaming desktop computer, and have Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 which played fine on Explorer. Firefox works fine since I installed it, but this game is now jerky rather than smooth. Could Explorer be interfering? Even if not, would I be at any disadvantage if I uninstall Explorer?

When the downloadhelper icon animates, I click on it as usual if I want to capture. The button operates normally, displays the video name and I click quick download. Nothing downloads, the library says no downloads for this session. However there is an icon in my download folder, but nothing plays -- there is no download. Everything works fine, except there is no download. Version 36?
