Re: USB W-LAN only works after reinserting <SOLVED>

May want to try simple sudo iwconfig wlan0 power off Works great for Belkin F5D7050B wireless g adapter ! It also fixed the slowness and replug issue in Ubuntu 10 and 11. Most importantly it also fixed a complete loss of network connection after system update in Mint 10 Julia Gnome 32bit. Wish I kne...

Re: Mint 13 MATE 32-bit installation just stops

Same problem with Maya install here. Install seems to start ok but after doing custom partitioning, it is already taking about 9 hours with the busy icon spinning and wireless card transmitting at times. I have chosen to format the 1TB boot drive with ext4 file format. The user guide says that insta...

Re: Urgent Help Needed - Firefox Protection Not Working

I used to pay using virtual cc number, and had no problems until this Xmas when I got too lazy, and went for one-click convenience using real cc number. My beef is with websites that keep cc info on their servers not bothering to move the info securely to offsite, making it susceptible to simple ste...

Re: Urgent Help Needed - Firefox Protection Not Working

I used legitimate mozilla.org test page link suggested for this purpose (needs updated then) However, here's why, quote from http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/910795 : The mozilla.org site isn't in the phishing protection database, so use the .com site instead for now for testing. http://ww...

Re: Urgent Help Needed - Firefox Protection Not Working

Yes I get a correct warning when using your link. When I try the Firefox's test site link in comment "Likewise, you can try to visit our malware test site..." I get the test page http://www.mozilla.org/firefox/its-a-trap.html, not the warning. I don't think this is desired behavior for protection wo...

Re: Urgent Help Needed - Firefox Protection Not Working

I thought Firefox updates were coming automatically with Mint updates, guess not.
Installed 9.0.1 Firefox version, protection still does not work.
Is this feature built-in or do I need to install add-on, plugin or extension ?

Re: Urgent Help Needed - Firefox Protection Not Working

Obviously.
I may have executed a nasty client side script and have a keylogger running or the server with my cc info on it got hacked, or who knows .......
However I need answer how I get the Firefox - Google attack website database check enabled.

Re: Linux Mint Search

Same thing started today after I was trying to track some spam or possibly virus for my friend whose email addresses got stolen. I disabled java script first, then clicked a link that opened some advertised product page. When I closed the page, Firefox reported the web site as "known attack web site...
