Hi folks,

Just wondering, is there a reason why (on my computer at least) the forums are wider than my screen, so I have to continually scroll left to right to read anything? Its well annoying! Is it libcom or my puter?

Cheers.

Hi folks,

Browser is Explorer, cant change it unfortunately cos it aint my computer.

Screen resolution? No idea, whats that?

Operating system: If this is what I think it is then Windows Old, maybe 98 I think.

Erm, yeh it seems fairly random but most pages are like it. Pretty much any time when there is grey text boxes, but some pages dont seem to do it or are laid out differently.

Cheers folks.

OK which version of explorer then? IE6 5.5?

If it's windows 98 it might be 5.5 in which case no much we can do to be honest.

You can get portable firefox though and use that usually.

firefox is owned by mozilla and early versions of firefox (I think) were based on the mozilla browser. You can still get mozilla but not many people use it.

but i thought firefox was open source, hence not owned. i thought mozilla:firefox might be like red hat:linux, a private company that made products/services for an open source program.
guess not?

Yeah basically. I think mozilla owns the "brand" - you can do what you like with the code though (Debian linux took the branding off it and renamed it iceweasal due to a dispute with mozilla for their last release).
