UNABLE TO OPEN AN HYPERLINK INSIDE OF A WEB PDF FILE OPENED INSIDE OF IE 11

Question: UNABLE TO OPEN AN HYPERLINK INSIDE OF A WEB PDF FILE OPENED INSIDE OF IE 11

Hello, We have gone to the website
http://www.salonrenovationmaisonneuve.com/en/exposants
and download the file to open Inside of IE. Once the file is open, none of the links either e-mail or web site works. However, if we open the same file Inside of Google Chrome, the links work. So, we want to know if we are missing something in IE or a plugin.
The PDF file opens with no problem but the links are not enabled. The file works in an Apple Machine and Google Chrome. However, if we download the file physically inside of the computer and then open the file with Adobe Reader, the links all work! Any ideas
how to solve this issue? Thanks Miguel Moreno

Preferred Solution: UNABLE TO OPEN AN HYPERLINK INSIDE OF A WEB PDF FILE OPENED INSIDE OF IE 11

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: UNABLE TO OPEN AN HYPERLINK INSIDE OF A WEB PDF FILE OPENED INSIDE OF IE 11

Internet Options>Security tab, click "Reset all zones to default" (there's a setting for scripting of ActiveX controls)
Start>Adobe Reader>Edit Preferences>there are setting for how embedded links are handled.
Chromium uses its own pdf reader plugin.Rob^_^

To select a portion of text inside a hyperlink, in Firefox, one simply holds down the Alt key. This does not work with IE. What is the IE solution?

IT seems that excel doesnt have a program registered to open hyperlinks. You will have to register a browser to open it.

Hello, Is it possible to desactivate the inside screen of the Yoga 260 to work with two extern screens without adding an extern graphic card or a dock. The 260 has a hdmi output but Lenovo provide also an adaptator that allowed you to connect a vga monitor. Unfortunatly when you use the vga output, the hdmi is automatically desactivated. That seems normal as the Intel graphic card do not support 3 screens. But what if you could turn of the inside screen? Can't we allocate the graphic card only to the two outside screens ? Thanks a lot and sorry for my english. R.













Solved!

Go to Solution.

Answer:Yoga 260 : Turn off inside screen to allocate the inside graphic card on two extern screens.

Your English is fine. I was hoping someone with direct experience would reply. I don't have a machine here with that chipset to test on. I have one coming, but it will be a while. I am not suggesting that you take apart your new machine and risk breaking something, but I am a little crazy and if I had this question, this is what I would try: I would remove the bottom cover and temporarily disconnect the LCD cable. I would figure that if the VGA and HDMI would not both work at that point, it was hopeless and give up. If it did work I would start reading about chipset options

I've been backing up "My Documents" with CDBurnerXP because

1. I consider Windows Backups to be opaque and I prefer to keep them simple and to know what is going on
2. Windows Backups does some things I believe are risky so I will not use it
3. Windows 7 had a deep directory structure problem and I presume Windows 8 continues to
4. It's ridiculous to backup "Windows" when I really only care about the safety of my data and since I am a slow typist who can't type at 3 Gigahertz it seems unlikely that I will ever have produced enough data that won't fit in one piece of optical media
5. I prefer to use a backup medium that has no moving parts and no firmware and humidity and mechanical shock resistant and contains no software and nothing vendor specific and blank DVDs are one such medium
6. I don't understand how a "backup DVD" can get scratched if there are never children and animals in the building (movie DVDs are a different matter)

Unfortunately, I can't continue down this route because my Windows 8 is now inside VirtualBox and I can't seem to make CDBurnerXP and Windows 8 recognize a blank DVD as a suitable target for a backup.

I am looking for suggestions for DVD burning software that is free and is known through your personal experience to work inside VirtualBox.

Answer:can I burn a DVD from inside Windows 8 inside VirtualBox

I can't comment on VirtualBox, but the most popular free burning program is Imgburn. Although I have Nero burning software, I find the Imgburn to be easier to use for iso CD's and DVD's.

The Official ImgBurn Website

I also use Macrium for backing up my PC's, but I back up to separate hard drives, not DVD media. There is a free version of Macrium.

I am using L1520 W8.1 GDR2 updated via Windows Insider.
I'm having problems opening Photos from ANY app (like trying to upload a pic on FB, upload a photo on 6tag, or share a pic on Skype, Viber etc). Every time I choose the option to select from my Photos, the Photos app opens and it shows zero pic PLUS like a 3 second hiccup/loading time then the Photo app quit back to the app I have been in before.
Occasionally, it succeeds in opening my phone Photos (like 1 out of 10 times) and let me choose a pic for once. So what I have been doing is attempting to do it over and over until the Photos app show the pics. But sometimes it doesn't let me do that, like from the KIK app for example, click Share Photos the second time after the first quit, the whole KIK crash and I had to open it again. :(
Also note that I have no issue at all open the Photos app itself from start or menu. I don't know why or how it happens and how to fix it. Does anybody experience a similar problem? If so, please help me out!
PS: I noticed, I think it has linking apps problem, as I had similar issue connecting to Facebook account from various games like candy crush too

Answer:Anybody cannot open the Photos from inside another app?

Originally Posted by Windows Central Question I am using L1520 W8.1 GDR2 updated via Windows Insider. Most likely this is the root cause of your issues. Insider was never meant as a vehicle to get Update 2 and remain there.
Have you tried opening Photos > select > checking one or more pics > tap share > then into FB, kik, whatever???

Guys,

Here is the situation: I am running Windows 98 on a 6 year old Gateway PC. I had to reinstall Office 97 and after doing so, I found out that my default e-mail program was switched from OE 6 to old Outlook 97. I went under Tools in I.E and clicked on Programs because I wanted to default back to OE 6. But, under e-mail programs, all that is showing is Microsoft Outlook.

Now, under my shortcut to Outlook Express 6, everything is fine. I have all my e-mail messages and it opens fine. I need to know how to get OE 6 back inside my browser when I click on the Mail prompt in the icon toolbar. Right now, it gives me a choice of Outlook or nothing.

I use Google Chrome as my default browser but this problem persists with Firefox and IE as well. As of right now facebook.com, twitter.com, and twitch.tv will not load at all. The worst of it all is these are the three sites that I most commonly use. I was able to use all of them perfectly fine last night before i went to bed, and now they will not load at all, while other sites load perfectly fine. When i run a ping test through the CMD prompt for these sites

Here are some troubleshooting tips I have tried already:
Check if theirs a browser update (none needed)
Clear cache, cookies, history, etc...
Run a malware scan (0 threats detected)
Run a Virus scan (o threats detected)
Try opening page while using https instead of http
Flush DNS through CMD prompt
Once again only these select few websites wont load while all others work perfectly fine..
Any help or ideas are greatly appreciated. This has been going on for nearly 3 hours now.

I have been happily using Windows XP and Internet Explorer without any problems until I downloaded and installed Service pack II. Some friends of mine told me that it probably was not SP2 that caused my IE to break but I'm not so sure. The main problem with IE is that if a link is inside a post (like if I add a link to the inside of this forum post) When I click on it, my IE does not respond and gets 'hung up'. It started happening right after installing SP2 but then I uninstalled SP2 and am still having the same problem. I am using the old netscape browser right now because I couldn't click on the forume topic to post (using IE).

The same problem happens with my email if IE is set to my default browser... I cannot click a link inside an email and have the link come up (it gets hung up). However, netscape is now set as my default browser so I can click inside links again in emails and it works.

A good friend of mine told me about major geeks and he seemed to think my problems were some kind of spyware and not SP2 that messed up my browser. (I use the lavasoft adaware program and Macafee)

Is there any way to 'fix' my IE so it will work again like it's supposed to?

Hi, I was wondering if anybody had any suggestions on helping me troubleshoot my dvd-drive.
If there is a disc inserted then the drive will open without a problem, but if the drive is empty and closed it won't open, the lights will flash, and it will make a clunking sound but thats all. I've tried reinstalling the device in device manager, no difference.

When a disc is in, it reads without any problems, its just getting it open. We need to use the emergency pop-out on the front of the drive (ejecting the drive in windows doesn't help either)

It is a Samsung TSSTcorp CD/DVDW TS-H552U writer, and i'm running XP home on it.

Please, any ideas?
 

Answer:Dvd Drive won't open without a Disk inside?

This usually happens because people close the drive by pushing the door, instead of using the "OPEN / CLOSE" button on the front. Eventually, the gears which drive the door to open and close it get damaged or misaligned. You MIGHT be able to repair this by disassembling the drive (usually EASY to disassemble if you know how, DIFFICULT if you don't), but that is probably a waste of time. The gears are plastic (to save cost and weight, and to reduce noise), so even if you got the drive apart, getting everything synchronized and properly aligned would be very difficult, IF the gears were not worn or damaged.

Best bet is simply to replace the drive; I dislike suggesting that people spend money on ANYTHING, but in this case, the deck is stacked against you.

Answer:sfc /scannow unable to repair files (cbs.log inside)

vram, it is best to run sfc at least three times. If you have not done that, try it while waiting for someone to view your cbs log. If it still will not repair, try a repair install.

Our company's domain name and website are the same (abc.com). I am unable to get to the website from inside our network. When I do a tracert it brings me to our dns server and not the website. The website is hosted off-site.

I am thinking I need to add a dns entry, but not exactly sure.

Any help would be great.

Thanks,
Wayne

Hello dear people of the Internet,
I've stumbled accross something I cannot solve at all. there is 1 folder which cant be changed/deleted nor anything inside or any other action. here are the errors
After Pressing Continue

Even tho Im the admin and the only user on this PC,
I tried to change the Permissions but this happens like a billion times for each thing inside the folder

Answer:Unable to take any action to a folder nor folders inside

Welcome to TenForums @FufflesPL

This is probably due to the permissions you are trying to change being inherited permissions. Try higher up where the permissions are being inherited from. Possibly as far up as:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam

very strange problem.

i have a folder on my desktop that used to be called "c++ programs" and has since been renamed to "goaway" (since it won't)

inside this folder which is located at C:\Users\bert\Desktop\goaway is a folder called C:

when i click it it brings me back to just C:\ - it acts like a shortcut - but it isn't! its my actual C drive. when i try to delete "goaway" it starts to send terabytes of data to my recycle bin. i CANNOT delete this folder! when i try, it will delete all that stuff and wipe most of the stuff from my C drive (which is.. uh.. important).

i went to cmd and cd'd to ~/goaway, and pressed Dir thinking its some sort of weird linking problem. heres a ss of the results:

http://i25.tinypic.com/2mcg1t1.jpg

(don't know why the image is all weird, thats just what tinypic did)

can anyone help me delete this forsaken folder? please help!

I have received an mail that has a RAR attachment. The contents of the email are such that it can only have been written by someone who knows me, i.e. its not been generated automatically and the suggested contents could be useful to me. Unfortunately my reply to him bounced as his email company saw me as spam. Is there any way I can view the contents of a RAR file without actually opening it and possibly exposing my PC to some sort of nasty surprise?

Answer:Looking inside a RAR file

I wouldn't risk it.
"Unfortunately my reply to him bounced as his email company saw me as spam"
So is this someone you normally have no problem emailing? Seems funny if suddenly your emails are seen as spam. Have you tried sending a plain text email with no attachements to him?

Answer:Virus that pops up when I open Files - HJT log inside.

5 day bump? :D

Hey everyone!

I recently got a new computer, an Asus Zenbook UX302lg, and let's just say it's been a whirl of problems. I've solved most of the original issues, but one's now popped up and it's been bugging me for a few hours!

My windows store DOES open without hiccup. However, once it's inside the screen, everything I click on does not respond - I try to update to 8.1 by clicking on the box, and the box gets smaller indicating that I've clicked on it, but nothing happens. Similarly, this is the case for EVERY single app - none of them respond to my clicks.

At the start, I thought perhaps it was my anti-virus software blocking it, so I disabled it (it was AVG 2014) but that didn't work. I uninstalled it (getting desperate) and didn't work.

I searched online for possible solutions - I downloaded the Windows app troubleshooter - didn't work, I reset the store cache - didn't work.

It may have something to do with the fact that when I first opened windows store, while everything DID WORK, updates on apps wouldn't work and it would be stuck on pending - I searched online but couldn't resolve it, until bam I got a notification saying that all my updates had been installed a few hours later - with me doing nothing. I thought I got pretty lucky. My computer's been through a couple of mandatory updates since then, and now today after I tried to update to 8.1 (the first time it's showed up in the store as well) it no longer works.

Any advice for a fix would be very much appreciat... Read more

Hi,

I am setting up a backup system for my pc, backsup to a remote machine via ftp. The files to backup will be compressed into a zip file and then backed up to the remote machine. My question is, if my pc gets infected with a virus and those files backed up to the remote machine, will the virus infect the remote machine as well ? (if the files are not unzipped on the remote machine & both machines running on windows Xp pro). Appreciate any help or suggestions in this.

Regards
Sudhi

Answer:Virus inside a rar or zip file

No, malware inside a ZIP or RAR file can't infect a machine, unless you extract the malware (and execute it).

So in your case, the simple fact of storing a ZIP backup on a remote machine will not infect that remote machine.

That's why malware researchers share malware samples in password-protected ZIP files.

Hello. I've tried everything I could but there is no way I can open any ports. They don't even open with DMZ enabled... Either I'm doing something wrong or my router is malfunctioning.
I'm under Windows XP. My Windows Firewall is DISABLED (Firewall). I've set up a static IP address (Static IP). My antivirus is NOD32 2.5.

My router is a Linksys Wireless WRT54G v2. I'm using Firmware: DD-WRT v23 SP2 (09/15/06) mini. I am connected through a Cat5 cable (not using wireless). I've configured the port opening (Port Range Forward).

My cable modem is a Motorola SURFboard® Cable Modem SB5120 (Modem). My internet provider is Suddenlink (Speed Test Results).

Port Scans:
(Using www.whatsmyip.org/ports/)
(Using www.amule.org/testport.php)
(Using www.canyouseeme.org/)

I've even tried restoring the router to Factory Default but with no luck. I've scanned my computer for viruses/spyware/ect already. If you need any other information, don't hesitate to ask. Any help is appreciated here. I've lived with it for almost 2 years now, all my friends have tried to solve this problem with no success. I figured it was time I asked the crowd here. Thanks in advance.

Answer:Communicator Toolbar and More - hjt log file inside

Hi TimS -

If you had followed through on your last thread here we may have avoided another round of cleaning. Please see this through to the end, where you will be given valuable protection information once your system is clean.

I'm going to have you run some scanning tools first, then we'll go after whatever is left.

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should 'not' have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools->Folder Options->View tab:
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders.
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm and then click OK.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Before attacking an adware/spyware problem with hijackthis make sure you have already run the following tools. Download and update the databases on each program before running. Ad-Aware? SE Personal Edition
*Note* For Ad-AwareSE also install the VX2 Addon Cleaner To run this tool ... Read more

Without using any Nero or file burning software, can Windows XP itself supports simple file copying to disc. Not that I know of, but i have a user who can do these.

1. select a file, right click and press SEND TO the burner
2. simply copy and paste the file to the burner
3. reopen a file on a disc, edit it, and then can save it back onto the disc.

Strange, anyone welcome to comment. Thanks.

Hi tony82x,
Welcome to Major Geeks!

I'm making a bug collection, so if you'd like to contribute, please attach a screen shot of the bugs with your next post. Then please continue as follows:

Go to the READ & RUN ME FIRST and work through all the instructions. If there is something you can't do, just make a note of what happens to tell us later and then continue on. When you're finished, use the Manage Attachments button down below the reply window to attach your logs. If you get all four logs, you'll need to post twice, because you can only attach three logs with each post.

Thanks.

I have a fairly large Fortran 77/90 & C program, compiled using Compaq Visual Fortran 6 & Microsoft Visual C++ 6 under Win XP.  On a particular test case it generally executes ok when invoked outside a batch file, but always fails when invoked from a particular batch file.  It stops on a Fortran 90 Allocate statement, but does not return the STAT result coded into that statement.  Seems to relate more to how much storage has been allocated rather than to the particular array being allocated, because I can reorder the allocation of different arrays and the stop does not occur on the same array.Although this is a large body of code, the test case is small and should not be requiring a large amount of allocated storage.I have tryed cutting the batch file down to just the statements that occur before invoking the EXE file (which are SET /P, ECHO, COPY, DEL, IF EXIST), then running the truncated batch file, then executing the EXE outside the batch file.  The EXE also fails in that usage.Any ideas on what I should be looking for to fix this?

I got caught this morning. Hungover, tired, and just plain dumb.

"A friend" sent me a file. Supposedly some great an amazing pics of her new baby. On offer was a .zip file which I downloaded. Within there was a "picture" only it was xxx.jpg.xxx.com, so in fact it was really a .com file.

I ran this file (yes, I am dumb), and now my MSN sends out endless requests to other people to download these files from me which will infect them.

Perhaps my saving grace is that I use WinPatrol. When I ran this it detected changes to my registry startup areas which I told it to remove. Once I had rebooted I am no longer sending out nasty messages (so far, its hard to say exactly how often the messages are sent). However, the virus files are still on my machine in an unknown location.

I do still have the original infected file that I was sent which can be made available for analysis.

I am running XP Pro SP2, and use Eset NOD32 V3 with most recent updates. The bug went straight through this like a knife through butter. I have updated and recanned my machine both locally, and with Eset's online scanner. Nothing found. Eset misses the install files for the virus, and also the running virus (my friend's machine is still actively spamming the virus files out).

Answer:Help, cant access file with trojan inside

If you can boot into Safe Mode try deleting the file there. Safe Mode has a limited amount of applications running which makes it ideal for purposes like this.

I've asked that a Moderator move this topic to the Am I Infected forum where there are those that are more knowledgeable about these problems.

Specifically I cannot open JPG and JPEG attachments inside Outlook 2003 mails WITH MICROSOFT VIEWER. Other viewers do. It appears a Microsoft viewer screen with several square figures as when the images viewing is disabled. When I drag the files to the desk there is no problem. I have re installed and "repaired" Micrsoft Office with no changes at all. I could change to Irfan or any other successful program but I prefer Microsoft Viewer because of its edition facilities. The PC and every other program are functioning pretty well (thanks to the forum guys's advices). This one appeared just today (I have made no changes or cleaning actions). I have viewed and reviewed all settings in both programs and and I do not see anything related with this trouble. Many thanks and friendly regards.

i recently got a new computer with WIN7 Home , 32 bits .

These vid formats dont work:

mkv

(one of the mkv files had the phrase "h.264-ac3" in its name, if its important for u)


ogm

rm files

flv

one vid file played with video but didn't play with sound - it was .mpg

one file didnt play well - was .mpeg , had slow downs


AND the following photos didnt open -

GIF images, and by that i mean, those gif image who "move", which are like vids but without sound and the Windows image opener thingy used to open these normally on my other computer (who had Windows XP)
Gif images open usually with the internet explorer (even though its not my default browser) and there they are "played" ok (meaning they are displayed flawlessly)

One image is catagolized by my pc as "File". meaning the part that supposed to say GIF or JPEG says "file". it is a moving image which always asks me how to be opened, NEVER allowing me to tick the "always use this software to open this type of files". it is displayed well on the Internet explorer.

Just in case i will mention that i have IE9.

so my questions are what should i download as codecs, formats, whateverr? sound codecs, and vids, how about the k-lite ? i just dont want to clug my pc with codecs. so if u know what i need to DL to make the pics work on the windowd image displayer tool thingy and make all the vids play well, i will appreciate it.

For those of you who have been complaining about the perceived slowness of Vista file copy operations (And <insert deity name here> knows ther have been many), I now present to you a copy of Mark Russinovich's blog dated 4 February 2008.

In his blog, he provides in-depth details of how the copy engine works, and what improvments have been made to this engine in Vista SP1.

Happy reading!

----------------------
The original text for this post can be read in Mark Russinovich's blog at http://blogs.technet.com/markrussinovich/
----------------------

Windows Vista SP1 includes a number of enhancements over the original Vista release in the areas of application compatibility, device support, power management, security and reliability. You can see a detailed list of the changes in the Notable Changes in Windows Vista Service Pack 1 whitepaper that you can download here. One of the improvements highlighted in the document is the increased performance of file copying for multiple scenarios, including local copies on the same disk, copying files from remote non-Windows Vista systems, and copying files between SP1 systems. How were these gains achieved? The answer is a complex one and lies in the changes to the file copy engine between Windows XP and Vista and further changes in SP1. Everyone copies files, so I thought it would be worth taking a break from the ?Case of?? posts and dive deep into the evolution of the copy engine to show how SP1 improves its performance.

I'm having problems with my iframe when viewing in IE (version 6)

The problem has to do with the URL/src of the iframe:
http://www.resonline.com.au/affredir/v2/affredir.asp?CommodityTypeID=1&StateID=401&DestinationID=454&AffiliateTheme ID=203&r=5&view=3&AffiliateID=203&refcode=OZACCOMM
(the page contains jscript)

I can view this URL in IE with no probs but when I try to view it within an iframe it won't stop reloading.. about every 2 seconds. It works fine in Firefox.

To see the problem in action you can check this link:
http://members.optusnet.com.au/~reen...comm/test.html

------------
Is there some jscript or something that I can use to force it to stop reloading.

Please HELP!

I recently downloaded starry night which is a program that you can use to look at space features and stuff, but I had to uninstall it becuase it was taking up to much space on my computer, well now I can't delete the sucker and I'm constantly barraged by "this program is being used by another person or program", so I unistalled those programs and yet it still wants to stay, what do I do?
 

Answer:Certain file inside a program can't be deleted.. no matter what I do..

Before you delete anything else that you might actually want, try a system restore to before you had starry night installed.

If this does not help then post details of your system, the files you want to eliminate and the exact error messages.

Hello,
I have a couple of computers set up in the network. They're all inside the same workgroup.
Every folder I share is visible by everyone.
Now I want to define permissions on only one folder which containes files only to be editable (modified) by, let say, one computer.
So I need to define special peermissions for this particular folder.
However I came accros to a problem. In network neighbourhood I can see all computers and their share folder and they see my shared files. But when I want to define special permissions on only one folder (one user can write and read, the rest is read only access), I cannot see other computers in the "Select user or groups" window just as shown in the attached picture.

One friend of mine told me that this is only possible when computers are on domain. It is really hard for me to understand that permissions cannot be defined for each folder and for each network user separately.

Can you give me any advice?

Thanks
 

Answer:File and folder permissions inside workgroup

Permissions are configured for local users on the machine, not network users or machines.

SPDT.SYS used by daemon tools/alcohol and KeyMagic. Both.

Your computer was up for 2 plus days so it isnt happening frequently, and removing those two items may fix it.
Ken J

Please remove any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%. They use a driver, found in your dmp, sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs. Use this SPTD uninstaller when you're done: DuplexSecure - Downloads

I'm new here and trying my best to abide by the posting procedure.

Details:
I have run ad-aware, spybot search and destroy, and cw shredder. They all delete some spyware/adware but always say some could not be deleted. I tried running them in safe mode but still couldn't deleted all of it. Every once and a while when I get online, a new window will open saying I may be infected by the "black worm" virus and it advises me to download their anti virus software. I'm not sure if this is just a trick, so I haven't downloaded it. The popups range from casinos to online shopping(dunno if that helps or not). My desktop looks blurry and the icons have a strange grey shadow to them as if they're selected(but they're not).

So say I have the Task Manager and Firefox running. I click on History or Bookmarks, whatever opens the sidebar thing, and Windows shifts focus from FF to the Task Manager, closes, reopens, resizes itself to its default dimensions (I believe), and opens whatever I summoned FF to open in the first place.

So right now I have Bookmarks open in the sidebar and the entire Task Manager program open within the sidebar.

It does not show up in the Applications tab as a separate program but it DOES show up in Processes. It will only do this once per FF session. Actually, I *think* I try to do it after closing and opening FF and it doesn't do it sometimes. But it does do it quite frequently.

Anyone else have this happen? For me, it's only the Task Manager that does this and when I have it open. I always have it running.

Another weird thing I've noticed is the Task Manager that is within FF has sharp corners opposed to the rounded corners like the other windows have. If I minimize it, it minimizes in the lower left corner of FF. When I resize the sidebar, the minimized Task Manager disappears.
 

Answer:Firefox: Whenever I open a sidebar thing, Task Manager closes and re-opens inside FF.

Sounds like reinstalling Firefox might be in order...

Hi everyone,Here's something I was wondering. I have a VB application how's calling another application. This second application is a commandline software that use a password as parameter.my code looks like that:Public const MYPASSWORD ="ThisIsMyPassword12345"

dim result as integer

result =  Shell("C:\Application2.exe " & MYPASSWORD , vbHide)I was asking myself if it was secure to store a password as a constant inside an application.Once the code is compile and transform to binary format, is it possible that a hacker retreive this password with some kind of password recovery tool.Thanks. Fred

Answer:Is it safe to store passwords inside binary file?

Yes if you have the password stored in a file, then it would be possible to reverse engineer that file and gain the password.
