TV-FOX use the Windows Media Player, if you don't have the WMP plugin you can get it from:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/browse/type:7

taken from: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/11200#reviews

What are the risks of watching a streamed video via WMP. I generally avoid using most of the MS integrated applications at least with the internet.

That's strange because it worked for me before but your post about Gmail turns 5 shows a X instead of the image.

How to block ads in Google Chrome with AdSweep
Chrome users don't have to put up with ads if they don't want to, though. If a proxy-based blocker isn't your thing, then why not install AdSweep - either as a Userscript or a Chrome extension. They're essentially the same thing right now, since extensions are basically Userscripts in a wrapper. Whichever way you want to install AdSweep, here's what to do.
http://www.adsweep.org/
Since it's available as a Userscript, users of other browsers can take advantage of AdSweep, too - just check on the homepage for instructions. Now, let's get it working in Chrome

That is interesting.   

I wish I had something interesting to photograph as everything is still in black and white as Spring warmth has yet to call forth the little shoots of the flowers and I have not yet seen a Robbin looking for food just a bob bob bobbing along

Microsoft has created the Fix It Solution Center, which is home to over 100 automated problem-solvers.
Fix It provides a way to apply automated fixes, workarounds, or configuration changes so you don’t have to perform a long list of manual steps yourself.

I would be happy if I could just win the lottery of windows updates, 7 days later and I still haven't got all the security updates from patch Tuesday yet, 6 down and 2 to go. The WU system try icon rears it ugly head every now and again but doesn't stay for long.

David,
Maybe it's time to spend the extra money and get away from Dial-up.  ;D
