I woke up around 4 A.M. this morning. Normally I refuse to get up so early, but for some reason I decided to start my day at that ridiculous hour. Since I had such a head start on the morning, I figured it was a good time to try and figure out some of my browser problems.
I’ve used Mozilla Firefox as my browser for years now; I love the “tabbed browser” and it’s never given me problems until the most recent update. Since then, after surfing here and there for awhile, Firefox will suddenly add a new tab I didn’t request, and at that point I can no longer click out of any single tab. I have to click out of Firefox completely to get rid of the tabs. I googled for answers, tried one or two of the suggestions I found, and found myself no better off than before.
So I uninstalled, then reinstalled. No dice; I still had the problem.
I’ve been testing Google Chrome for awhile. The only problem presented to me there was that the font size was too small; so since I wasn’t having any luck with Firefox, I decided to see what I could find out about changing the font size on Chrome. Google didn’t help me out much, but then I remembered a computer-help site set up by some people who frequent a message board in which I used to take part.
I found my answer, and now I don’t have to strain my eyes when I’m using the Chrome browser.
Which reminded me to send that computer help site a small donation VIA Paypal. I think I’ll just send a donation every time I find the answers to my questions on that board. I never log in to ask questions, although I am a member. I’ve been burned once too often by message board groups. But I do go there looking for help, and quite often somebody in the group has had the same trouble as me. Today was one of those times.
I realize I’ll be using Safari as my browser once I get my Mac Mini. Until then, I’ll be surfing VIA Google Chrome.
