FF as Default.

FF as Default.

I like XP and want to keep on using it as long as possible because I use software that doesn’t work with Win 7.

 

However more and more websites are saying my IE 8 is not good enough and to upgrade my browser.

 

I want to use Firefox as my default browser and I have set it as Default ( and checked tell me if not). But everytime I go to a website I get a message “FF is not your default browser do you want to make it so” and I click Yes. But IE seems to be doing some hijacking here. How do I stop this.

 

At IE Programs it says ‘IE is the default browser’ with no apparent option to change this.

Many thanks for replies.

 

I seem to have solved it using the 'windows.micro' link above.

DOH!

 

I thought the 'FF' title meant that the thread was going to be about 'Farm Fresh'

I now  have another problem which seems linked to FF.

 

I  made  a FF shortcut to Youtube but now cannot 'Download  with  Realplay'. I tried to download Realplay Cloud which seems to be the latest version but cannot get past Step 1 "Save"

 

I did a system Restore to before i made FF the  Default Browser and it took me back  to IE8 again  but I can download again from Youtube etc. I have undone the restore because IE8 cannot deal with some websites such as banking.

 

So does the Realplay Downloader only work with IE.

Trying to think outside the square here but why don't you bite the bullet and go Win 7/8.1, and then use XP with VMplayer for that odd bit of software that needs it. i.e mount XP as a VM ? Going forward XP is getting harder and harder to support.

I doubt it. Consider trying the Google Chrome browser. I don't use IE for anything if there is an alternative. 

 

"PC system requirements for RealPlayer Cloud

What operating system and web browser do I need to use RealPlayer Cloud?

To use the desktop RealPlayer Cloud software, your system should meet the following requirements:

- Windows 7 or 8 (We are actively working on making it backward compatible to Windows XP.)

- Internet Explorer 9 or higher; Firefox 17 or higher; Chrome 23 or higher

The RealPlayer Cloud website will work with the above systems as well as on Windows XP and Vista, and Macintosh computers running Safari 5 or higher."

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
