Firefox 3 download - Guinessbook of Record poging...

Download Day

In een poging een vermelding te halen in het Guinessbook of Records, onderdeel 'de meeste downloads op een dag'. De Mozilla Foundation nodigt iedereen mee te doen. Schrijf je hier in, dan krijg je een emailtje op het moment dat je de download moet beginnen!

Tevens een mooie gelegenheid op Firefox te promoten, want Nederlands Firefox gebruik is het laagste van heel Europa :-(

Recovering my sxipper training name...


I am a great fan of Firefox and the extensions/addons are really my friends. One of my current favorites is sxipper Which is basically a smart way of automatic form filling. It saves you the hassle of having to fill all forms by hand. Sxipper will do the hard work for you, but in order to automatically fill a form, the form have to be learned by the user base of Sxipper, basically called the trainer of a Form, which gets credits (name mentioned) if you fill a form.

I have been with Sxipper since day one, while they where still in beta phase, and during the update to 2.0 I lost my trainer name :-(. Luckily support provided me with an answer, which works great:

Dear Rick,

If you are using a different computer (Firefox profile) you can
import your Sxipper training name by exporting your logins from the
other computer by using Sxipper Preferences [Tools -> Sxipper ->
Preferences -> Login -> Export].

In case you lost your Sxipper account you can retrieve it using an
older version of Sxipper as follow:

1) Uninstall Sxipper 2.x
2a) Install Sxipper 1.3.2 from
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addons/versions/4865
2b) In Sxipper setup: retrieve your account and finish setup wizard
3) Update to Sxipper 2.x
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4865


Note for uninstalling Sxipper 2.x:
- Your site passwords will not be touched.
- If you want to keep your persona data, you can export it before
uninstalling and reimport after step 3. (Tools -> Sxipper ->
Preferences -> Form fill)

We are sorry for the inconvenience and looking into providing a
simpler way to do this in the future.

Best regards,
Roger

Sleepy macbook pro battery...


Just came back from holliday (check pictures at flickr turkey 2008 set, not all ready yet) and my 17" macbook pro battery was completely dead. I kind of needed my laptop to answer all emails so I hooked it on the power supply and started working, but the battery was not charging.

After a few hours of tumbling my thumbs hoping I could save the little battery his live, the battery started to charge again, I am saved ;-).
