Default Really Dumb question...

Yeah so when I went to download an Mp3 from an unknown artist so you know they just put it up on their pages and whatnot, so yeah I accidentally hit "Always remember this decision' So ya know you have the option of Open or Save when you go to download anything, text file, a program or anything like that, yeah I don't want it to automatically choose open because now I have to go to 'save target as' but if I click a link currently it just starts downloading it to a Temp Folder...I don't know where the setting is to correct this. Anyone else know Thanks all

bah screw it, I guess I'll listen to the advice of others, what's a good browser? I've heard people say Firefox is the best and a friend of mine swears by Avant browser.....what do you think?

I'm now posting from firefox....am I coming in clearly??? Can everyone hear me? Aright good...check mic...1...2...1.....2.....3....

I feel lost! It's such a strange place! Seems like stuff loads a hell of a lot faster and like the screen is bigger......wha hoppened!?!

The colors on TF have changed....there's like black boarders around the Thread headers...I don't remember that

Yeah the top of the forums list where it says:

FORUMS POSTS DATE LAST POST


the black line that's there is WAY thicker on FireFox, why would this be?

Ha ha ..lol. eah Firefox seems to process HTML tags little different from IE. And basically the difference lie in the default font and its size. You can work around in preferences .

"Welcome to the world of firefox."
