Dialogue window thingies
« on: 15:12:38 - 05/04/11 »
Y'know those windows that open when you scroll over text ('Actions' etc). They then go again when you're no longer scrolling over them, right? Well, mine aren't, on the work PC with IE8. At home, with Firefox, no worries. Odd, eh?

Please note I am notoriously technopbic and comparatively old. Anything overly technical will go right over my head, but there's probably a quick and easy fix for one of you techophile youngsters, eh?

What's that, sonny? Speak up, I can't hear you.

I run firefox portable from a usb key on my work pc, that way I get access to all the greasemonkey scripts and periodically i import all-in-one backups to refresh gears etc.

As I understand it firefox portable stores all information on the usb and nothing on the pc you are using.

Therefore, even if you are not allowed to install programs on your work pc you should still be able to use firefox portable on a usb key.

In terms of IE8... is javascript installed on your work PC? Go to IE - Tools - Manage Addons to check. If not, your work may have locked it down for security reasons you need java for estiah.

Thanks, youngsters.

I had IT support install Firefox throughout. Sometimes it's good to be the boss.  ;)

Wow... you're an awesome boss... (or maybe not because it took you so long?).  I'm sure your staff will appreciate not having to use IE anymore.

Actually, due to the reason for the update, definitely leaning towards awesome boss :)
