Re: Need Help Could Not see Pictures in Thread

It may help to make sure
ActiveX
Scripts
Java Applets

are not disabled under Tools in the Menu Bar.

Also make sure you have all Updates under Automatic Updates.

Wouldnt harm to run CCleaner too

Re: How To Place Bookmarks on the Bookmarks Bar

I think epiac is making a big deal out of configuring the
Bookmarks Bar!
I find it quicker to use the bookmarks option in the Menu Bar

Avant far outweighs FF in its speed etc. to let a minor point like a Bookmarks Bar be a stumbling block :roll:

I had a feeling on it and this one, so I thought I'd post that to add this to my watched topics. Sorry 'bout that, davesh...
