I HATE Lite-Ons web site!!

Postby TheCDBurner on Wed May 26, 2004 4:32 pm

F***ing thing only works with IE, not FireFox. Is it so freaking hard to make it work with both!?! ](*,)

I had to reinstall IE just to download some firmware and look at the LVD-2010 :evil:

It is a royal pain in the (bleep) to reinstall IE and then uninstall the POS :evil:

OK, done ranting now...

I LOVE Opera...fastest browser on Earth! However, it doesn't have the one thing I have to have: AdBlock. Now you see a banner ad, now you don't! Magpie is nice, too, but I can live without that. But ads just piss me off :)

Opera does seem to work with a heck of alot more than FireFox, though! Maybe I'll have to go back to using two browsers again. Why the heck I didn't just install Opera instead of IE, well #-o

The Proxomitiron (sp?) is great, but kills a few web sites I use often.

Opera can block popup ads; FireFox has an extension that lets you block any banner ad/image. So if you have a site that stores ads like: www.astupidsite.com/ads/image.gif, you can set it to block www.astupidsite.com/ads/*

Handy!

I assume you meant the popups, right? I'm not seeing anything else. I haven't tried the latest Opera, too much new crap I don't need. I like my 7.23 :) Actually, I think 6.x was better...

If its lack of info, puzzlingly laid out, etc Toshiba's takes some beating. If you're after anythin to do with support, forget it. Buying, yes. After sales ? NO.

Add them to the bypass list and you won't have to worry about those sites being blocked.
