Q: Solved: Fire Fox 2 not using all of caching limit

I've set my Fire Fox 2 to use 1,000 MB of space for its webpage cache, but it never actually uses more than 22.7 MB. What's the error here?

Preferred Solution: Solved: Fire Fox 2 not using all of caching limit

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My computer has caught of fire.
If i ever push my screen back it will over heat and start a fire on the lower left side of the screen.
Currently it is only giving me a white screen and sounds like it is working normally but i just can't see anything.
I tried to resent it, take out the battery, and keyboard smashed it.
It gave me an only white scree in the past and cleared up after a few hours but now it's not working.
I tried to put another monitor in it and it didn't work.
Hope I'm not the only one with this problem.

A:Fire and white.My computer has caught of fire. If i ever push my screen back it will

If your computer is catching fire, I would turn it off, remove the battery and unplug it. Take it to a qualified technician. It sounds as if your video cable is shorting out.

Hello Everyone....

thanks for all your help

A:Fire Wall Question? Do I Really Need 3 Fire Walls Running At The Same Time

I am not familiar with your specific modem, but as it is external to your computer it will not adversely affect the system. It is likely a firmware or hardware firewall. This is a good thing, and provides an additional layer of protection. Usually a third party firewall turns off the native Windows firewall by default. Zone Alarm, for example. I am suprised that McAffee does not. It is not necessary to have both on, and since McAfee is 2-way (Program alerts) I suggest that you use it. Windows can be told to stop "bothering" you about the firewall situation. Security Center is found in the Control Panel. Once open, notice the words "Change the way Security Center alerts me" on the left. After clicking there, a dialog will open in which you can arrange the alerts to your preferences.

Hi everyone,

I have been thinking about upgrading my Inspiron 3647 Small Desktop's RAM and graphics card for a while now and I would like to ask if it can handle 16 GB of RAM (8GBx2) and for any suggestions for an upgrade from a GT 625 that would fit within its case. The computer has 2 DIMM slots so I wouldn't think that 16gb of ram should be a problem. It already has 4 GB pre-installed.

Thanks in advance.

So I have Internet Explorer 7 beta 3 RC1 or w/e and recently it stopped caching my pages at all. I've set the amount of disc space to use to 70 MB and to let it Automatically check for updates of pages, and I don't delete the temporary files, yet whenever I go to GMail there is a noticeable pause on The Loading page. Normally it skips that page since it's already been cached, but nowawadays it stays there for like 1 minute. It doesn't cache any other page either, I've tried it with Google, my blog, TH, TSG, etc. Any help? I want it to cache properly so I can reduce wait times when browsing.
I've tried clearing all my temporary files (temp files, cookies, history, etc.), reinstalling Internet Explorer 7, and rebooting the computer and such but no luck.
Below is my HJT log if it helps. Thanks guys.

Hiya

I've moved this to Web and Email for more response

Just to put your mind at ease, its not just IE7. I have IE6 on XP home, and it does it for me on Gmail. It just sits there, but if you click Refresh, it finds the page. I wonder if there has been an increase in users.

I know that they've changed their page layout recently, so maybe that has someting to do with it.

Or have I misread this post, and its with all websites? I'll see if someone can take a look at your HT log.

Hi,

After restarting my system today, I started getting a BSOD in my Vista Home Premium machine every 10-15 minutes without having to do anything on the computer.

The BSOD says the following:
check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If there is a new installation ask your software or hardware manufacturer for any new updates you might need. If problems continue disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components restsart your computer press F8 to select advanced startup options and then select safe mode.Click to expand...

The last thing I did on my computer is installing "Adaware anniversary edition", which required a reboot 2 days ago, but I didn't reboot till now. I uninstalled that, but still the same issue. I haven't done anything else as far as I can remember.

I checked the event viewer, but the "error" I find only says that an unexpected shutdown occurred.

I'm now trying system restore in hopes it'll fix the problem, but it probably won't.

Any idea how I can troubleshoot/solve this issue? what kind of information can I post here to make troubleshooting the issue easier for you guys?
Any help is so much appreciated

I haven't been on this site since I was 16 years old. You guys helped me out a lot back then and now I'm having some trouble with the icon I made for FF and I was hoping someone might point me in the right direction.
So I just got this new PC running W7, which I am completely unfamiliar with. I was using Chrome as my default browser because I like the UI but soon realized it didn't have a lot of the capabilities Fire Fox Had. I downloaded the latest version of FF along with a few add-ons to make the interface more like Chrome's. When I finished I decided for the heck of it to make an Icon incorporating the FF fox with the Google Chrome logo. I saved it as a .ico icon and tried to set it to the Fire Fox sortcut on my desktop but I got a dialog box stating that "blahblahblah/icon.ico contains no icons. Choose an icon from the list or specify a different file." I chose the Icon I made anyway and it just changed the FF icon to a blank page. I tried saving it as a .png image and that didn't work either. I've also tried searching Google for answers but couldn't find anything.

What am I doing wrong?

Hello again Everyone,

I purchased a used HP DV 6700 Series Notebook. It seemed fine until I looked at it closer. I have 3 other computers running W7 and this one seemed different. Certain things are not in the places where I would normally find them. In the Computer window I have the HHD and the DVD drive plus 9 "others." Administrative Tools, Desktop Gadgets, Run... Stuff like that. I thought that the people I got it from just did some odd things with it. I'm not sure. But I can fix all that.

I downloaded and installed Firefox, Avast Antivirus, and Malwarebytes Anti-malware. I tried to download Windows Live Essentials. Actually I only wanted Windows Movie Maker. But I had made several attempts but it kept failing. I tried to install some other video editing software but they too failed.

I decided to just Recover the entire computer and start fresh since I had nothing of my own on the computer. I tried to bring up the Recovery Console but no luck. I looked and there was no Recovery Partition. This is when I noticed that the Fire Theme wasn't what I thought it was. I'm still not entirely sure what it is. But it appears that this "theme" is more like a *******ized version of W7. This "theme" is Rockers Team Windows 7 Pro Fire Theme. I think it's a completely reworked operating system.

First time posting here! I think my brother frequents these boards often and speaks very highly of all the help people are willing to give...

Here is my situation:
I'm seeking a PC Gamepad that will allow me to program buttons with keyboard keystrokes plus activate those keystrokes with "rapid-fire."

In particular, let's say I want to spam "Ctrl+1" continuously; I'm looking to map Ctrl+1 to a button, then set the controller to "turbo" or "auto-fire" mode.

Sounds simple? I'm having a hard time finding a gamepad that has both the turbo option and programmable buttons. Its either one or the other. I thought I found one, it was Logitech device, but even though the company advertised that it had programmable buttons + auto-fire, it didn't work. Turns out the auto-fire button can only be mapped to a single key...

Now, I've done a decent amount of research myself to help find a solution, however I am getting a bit burnt out with buying products that don't work as advertised and then having to argue with the company to get refunds.

I found another possibility, but before I try it, I'd like to ask if any of you kind people perhaps know of a gamepad that can suit my needs... or maybe you even have one yourself!

The house burnt to the ground but the metal case saved the hard drive. the hard drive is completely black now. I can wipe the smoke off with a little rubbing alcohol though. Im worried that the rubber seal between the pieces of the hard drive will not reseal after taking it apart becuase of the heat. Could the smoke residue in the filter even affect the hard drive?

I used to have firefox 2 even after it was outdated. I got Firefox 3 after someone helped me fix my computer (on this forum) just for the updated security. I have noticed that Firefox 3 runs almost Twenty times slower than Firefox 2 used to. I have not been able to fix this problem and have looked everywhere for the solution (mainly google.com). I have tried the solutions that allow piping and all that other stuff and it helped the speed a little but not noticeably. I am thinking of going back to Firefox 2 again if I cannot get the same speed as I had before I updated. For reference I have Comcast High-Speed Internet, Firefox 3 with the NASA Night launch theme (which I have had since Firefox 2). I have also followed the instructions ("How you got infected" post and etc...) and have avast home edition, Spyware blaster, Spyware Guard, and Spybot. I had these programs on my computer before it was fixed and a few more which have deleted or replaced. I did notice slowdown after I installed Zone Alarms, Firefox 3, and Ad Aware free scanner as per the instructions given to me by the user who helped me fix my computer. I just want to get the extreme speed back that I used to have with Firefox.

I am currently using McAfee Antivirus and Firewall. The programs are over taxing my slow computer, requiring an additional 5 minutes to boot when left in the startup folder.

Are programs available that are efficient, run in the background, boot quickly, but not over whelm the computer? Freeware would be great, but all recommendations are appreciated.

My mom wants to buy my dad a Kindle Fire for Christmas. Currently they have a desktop computer with a modem plugged into it and use Verizon dsl for their internet. The Kindle needs wi-fi and I don't want to disrupt the way their computer is set up now.

Do I simply plug the router into the modem to get the wi-fi signal?

Hi, Guys.

I was recently overclocking my cpu and i got it to 3.28ghz and i noticed that the fsb was 1640mhz and i read on my motherboard's spec sheet "Up to 1600mhz fsb OC", so what im wondering is what effect does this have on my motherboard so what im asking, is this number written in stone? is it a recommendation? or ...?

Idle Cpu temp = 16C

By the way if your wondering about specific computer specs i wrote them all into my profile.

Any Help would be nice guys

I'm upgrading my dads computer with some more RAM soon and had a quick question.

This is his motherboard: http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=2691#sp

in the "Specifications" section it says:

2 x 1.8V DDR2 DIMM sockets supporting up to 4 GB of system memory
Support for DDR2 800/667/533 MHz memory modules

Does this mean that it can take a total of [2x4GB modules] 8GB of ram ?
 

A:Solved: Ram module limit help

No, it means it can support a total of 4GB, so with 2 slots that means 2GB per slot.

This is verified at Crucial's site: http://www.crucial.com/upgrade/Giga...rboards/GA-73PVM-S2H+(rev.+1.0)-upgrades.html

I'll try to make this brief and to-the-point.

Yesterday, my desktop began having problems connecting to the internet. Since then, I've tried a range of fixes, including buying and installing Windows 7 Home Premium (x64) as a fresh install (Upgraded from Vista Home Premium (x32)). So far, nothing has worked. I have absolutely no idea what initiated this issue.

As it stands, the system will connect to the internet, but VERY slowly in general. It seems as if it is struggling to maintain the connection... as if the router was out of range. However, the router is one wall and maybe 15 feet away, has worked fine for over a year previously, works on my laptop, and shows as the best signal strength. Some sites (MSN, Bing) come up pretty quick. Some sites (CNN, facebook, google) take a long time to load or simply don't load (long time = several minutes or more). Network diagnostics has reported issues with the cable modem (doesn't make sense with other devices working), a broken network connection (also deos not make sense), and, most commonly, "your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device or resource (DNS server) is not responding".

I have a linksys wireless-G broadband router.
It has been reset to factory defaults (used to work), but I have switched the channel from "6" to "1" as an attempted fix... it failed to have any impact.

I have a Dell Inspiron computer with 3gb ram, 320gb hard drive, and a dual core in... Read more

Hi,

I started realize this on the 30th of May. I thought it was just a network problem with the University internet (Resnet) which may or may not be the problem. I am waiting for them to reply on the issue. However, doing research about this and thinking about it more, it could be a possible malware which I would like to check with you guys to confirm.

Basically the problem is that I cannot get on certain sites with Internet Explorer (Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage) or Chrome (This web page is not available. Google Chrome's connection attempt to www.google.co.uk was rejected. The website may be down or your network may not be properly configured.).
Google.com/google.co.uk is one of the sites that I cannot get on. However google.ca works. Also if I use the google toolbar WITHOUT pressing enter / clicking the search button, it works fine which allows me to see the results.
I cannot log in secure sites such as hotmail or even use the program Windows Live Mail. Same with trying to log on League of Legends and Diablo 3. However all the sites I cannot get on or log on in, works on Firefox. Also if I use Chrome's Incognito browser, google.com works fine but I still cannot log in on secure sites.
Programs such as Skype, MSN, Teamspeak3 works fine.
When I diagnose connection problems on I.E, it gives me no problems found. However when I diagnose the LAN, I get problems fond: "Your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device or resource (... Read more

This is my first try at asking questions on the net so please bare with me.
I was using a "dial up" and now I have ComCast Broad Band. After I picked up the cable modem I then purchased a "D-Link" router. My understanding is that the router is also a "hardware fire wall." If this is true, then I need to know if I still need my Norton Personal Firewall. Thanks for your help.

I recently expanded the number of names on the WLM group mail list for a computerclub of which I'm President and received the following error message:

ServerError: 452
ServerResponse: 452 4.1.1 Too many recipients for message
Server:'smtp.comcast.net'
WindowsLive Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC79

I've used this group mail list successfully many times in the past, but the number of recipients was fewer. There are now 119 club members with whom I want to communicate by group mail. Is there a limit? If so, what is it? Thank you –
 

A:Solved: WLM group mail limit?

that's not a WLM error, that's a shortcoming in comcast.....from them:
Comcast is committed to providing a secure Internet experience for all of our customers. In an effort to help prevent spam and ensure the security of our network and customers, Comcast has the following sending limits in place for our residential High-Speed Internet customers:
&#8226;An email message can be sent to a maximum of 100 recipients. Any messages sent to over 100 recipients will not be delivered.

Is there a size limit to what can be sent from outlook 07? I tried to send a 5 MB message the other day and it would not go. Perhaps there's a setting that can be changed.
 

A:Solved: Outlook 07 size limit

Hi bosso

The size limit is set by your ISP. If you go to your web mail server, you may find the limitations in their help or FAQs section.

Can you send the same 5 MB file, using the same e-mail account, from Outlook Express?
