Yes. Flash has run in a separate process for 5-6 years now IIRC. When Flash crashes, it doesn't take down Firefox, it just displays a block say that Flash crashed, and I believe it gives you a report link.
I use the Internet for business, not entertainment.
Trolling again, are we AC?
What are you doing on Slashdot if you only use the internet for business? Also, how does
- 1. A company shouldn't have my password stored anywhere in a form that they can decrypt it.
- 2. A company shouldn't have the answers to my security questions stored anywhere in a form that they can decrypt it.
That's why the agency is asking for the salt as well. They're trying to eliminate the parts of the formula that make it so that you can't figure out what the password is. Reverse engineer the impossible formula, so to speak.
Dang. So I was just trying to continue the joke, but apparently if you type the asterisk symbol enough times, it actually writes your password out. Weird...
Hmm, sounds like a good idea. Here's mine: absdXGH4420078jkl!@gy
All of my passwords look like that. Randomly generated with special characters. Typically 25 chars long.
They are in a password manager. I don't have to remember them at all...
So basically, you've got all your securely designed passwords stored in one keyring that if one person get the code to, they could use to gain access to all of your passwords. Much more secure storage area than your brain I'm sure.
I've noticed that most of the comments on this page are people being worried about Mozilla taking away functionality from the browser, but... wasn't the point of Firefox to reduce the amount of bloat in the default setup? Mozilla Suite (now Seamonkey, previously Netscape Communicator) wasn't quite Emacs, but it included way more than what many required for their uses, and so Firefox was born to trim all of that stuff out, with the idea that you can add in back in with extensions.
Most people use a puny 4 inch screen to get to the net via mobile phone networks.
I remember arguing once with a cell phone salesman in the mall with something similar to this. This was back in the days when flip phones were the general fancy phone. Anyway, this guy was trying to sell me one of his service's phones and I asked him if I would be able to use the phone to get internet access to my laptop. His reply completely baffled me at the time (remember, flip phones). He asked, "Why would you want to get on the internet with your laptop when you could just browse it on your phone?"
At that point I figured there was nothing I could say to him to show him my point if he actually preferred to browse on a 2-inch screen by pressing arrow keys.
