Technical Help / Create shortcut
« on: Thursday 13 September 12 08:28 BST (UK)  »
    After switching from an IE browser to Firefox, I now find that I can't just right click a page on any site and see the words: Create Shortcut.       So how do I create a shortcut when using the Firefox browser?

Technical Help / Adobe Flash Player 11.3 doesn't install
« on: Monday 10 September 12 08:51 BST (UK)  »

     I recently installed Firefox as my main browser, but now get messages asking me to install Adobe Flash Player 11.3            So I click install, but  it simply doesn't download.         

      ...I have googled this problem and all I see is VERY complicated solutions being offered to solve the problem.      Some advice given was that Firefox isn't compatible with Adobe Flash.         Have I got to switch to another browser just to get Adobe Flash?

Technical Help / Choosing a Second Browser
« on: Thursday 06 September 12 13:01 BST (UK)  »
      I have Windows Vista and am using Internet Explorer 7, and it often refuses me entry to things.    I have tried I.E.8 and it was no better.
When I try to reach some sites, I get a message saying "We notice that you do not have a supported browser" ....   IE7 also keeps saying "Can't display page".

      I am not technically minded, but if I install a second free browser, how do I look up to make sure that I have it installed as the default browser?      (I am sure I read that there is a box somewhere that I have to tick to enable it to work.)

     I definitely don't want IE9, so that is out.     So which browser is most similar to IE7, so that the page isn't altered too much with an additional distracting toolbar and other unfamiliar features?      ...I have heard that Chrome have gone "too far" with the new features.       Would Safari of Firefox or one of the others be better?

     I am uneasy about adding a new browser in case its security system blocks me out of sites and makes things worse.

     Where is this box I l would look at to see if the second browser is actually installed and working?
