Hi All,

Our company has decided to move on to IE8 from the big'ol trustworthy IE6. I have had problems with IE8, so want to try Firefox before accepting IE8 is the way to go for my team. (Also, I guess IE8 cannot be uninstalled or we cannot go back to IE6. So I want to install IE8 only when absolutely necessary.) I have a question regarding this.

The most important reason why browsers are important to us is that we post log files in the morning. It makes our job easier when we have one location to view all the logs first thing in the morning. So we have a html page with links to the relevant log files.

IE6 has been very kind in this aspect. If I set .log files to open with a particular application on Windows, then when I open the same filetype on IE6 it opens up on the same application. For example let us say I set the file to always open up with an application 'xyz' on Windows. Now when I open it on IE6 it opens up in xyz.

Is this possible in Firefox? If yes, how?

I have an application that adds symbols for No errors, errors and warnings. I have set my log files to open up in this app on Windows. But, as far as I have tried, my log files open up as text file every time on Firefox. With this app I only need to read the logs if I see a symbol for Warning or Error. So with this in mind debugging a log file as text is a PITA. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Madan

This is a RtlpWaitForCriticalSection crash and I read the article on dealing with it to discover the probable cause. However, I don't know what the file is and how it could interfere with my web browsing. Any help? I also noticed that I'm getting frequent crashes with other browsers as well (IE and Chrome, Safari seems to work fine). My most recent crash report is linked below:

My computer shut down for updates overnight. I turned it on this morning. I needed to print out a couple things from Firefox. The printouts all came out in a large format. The print was larger then normal. Only about 2/3 of the page width actually printed out. I experimented to locate the problem. I tried two different printers, both with the same result. I printed out directly from two others programs (Outlook and Word) and the printouts were normal. So it's when i print out from Firefox that the problem occurs. What can I do to return the printing to normal size?

I lost my bookmarks in FF 3.6.3 on one computer. I was able to copy the places.squalite file and place it in a desktop folder of a new computer also using FF 3.6.3. I'm not sure how to import this file into the new FF. Can I go into the program files, rename the places.squalite file there as "old..."and substitute the copy I placed in the desktop folder? Or is there another way to salvage the info?
