Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Only just updated to it. For the mac. Hmm difficult to get used to the tabs at the top instead of bottom. I do like some of the improvements. Handy having the Bookmarks menu option at far end of window I guess. On a large monitor saves reaching to the main menu bar.

AFAIK only one plug-in doesn't have an update for it at this point.

I had to downgrade a clients Firefox to 3.6.17 after he had updated to Firefox 4. Java button issues (with working java) and specific language spellcheck.

I might have been able to fix it but after almost 2 hours of tweaking I found downgrading the easiest (and for him cheapest) solution.

Firefox 4 has changed a lot to what FF3 was, It's a lot quicker, in my opinion. Still the best browser there is to me.

Is there a way to disable the icons for the Toolbar bookmarks? It crowds my toolbar bookmarks so much there's no space for all the bookmarks to display & forces me to click an arrow to access the other main bookmarks I use. I find this highly annoying. I don't need icons to know what the bookmark is. lol I don't see anything in preferences for disabling the icons. Who wants over-crowded bookmark toolbars?

ie: 3 of my regular toolbar bookmarks require me to press an arrow to access them because there's no horizontal space left to list them with the icons taking up so much space. The Bookmarks menu being on the far right of the Toolbar also steals space. Great for those who don't have many bookmarks listed there, but for me it's almost a necessity for quick access. If I feel miffed enough I'll go back to Safari (since I"m a mac user. BTW I still use both for different purposes. Firefox seems to lack some MacOSX abilities. Lack of research on their part I'm guessing.)

Not now for me. Seems jagged & crowded toolbars. It's like needing to reach outside the window to find my glass to fill it with wine because the room was too jagged & crowded to place it anywhere else. Good for windows users maybe. More buttons & options that were not needed on the main browser window. All it seems to do is crowd things. There's different names for it. One is am_bience (or lack of it.) One is ergonomics. One is chaos. lol

ie: if the arrangement of the program's tools & options slows me down, then I can hardly call it faster. All it does is make me hesitate, then access something I didn't need to do previously with FF3.

In the customize menu there is an option to use small icons. I make folders though for grouping related bookmarks.

BTW as for crowding, you can customize Firefox (at least v3) as much as you want.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll look at the option tomorrow though I don't see a customise option for icons presently. Yes I think I used small or zero icons on v3 too. (Likewise I use folders for bookmarks on toolbar. All those related to particular topic or forum, etc.) But v4 definitely looks more crowded on the toolbar, something I don't like. With v3 I customised it to reduce that kind of thing.)

Last thing I want is to have to stretch the browser dimensions. Affects my work flow. ie: having multiple programs running simultaneously & in view at same time. Is a 30" apple monitor big enough or do I need larger because FF has made things more difficult?
