Re: RE: [fhctech] Re: IE 8 and the portal certificate
I don't think we're using Deep Freeze, unless whoever set this one Optiplex up did that, I don't see an icon, but will be checking in a couple of hours when we open for the day. If it isn't a Deep Freeze install, I'll ask again about it as I'll know a little more.
How I can tell it's Flash 7, I go to http://www.speedtest.net/ as that will say it needs Flash 8 if it is not installed and updated past that.
Had an odd problem with Chrome and the FamilySearch Indexing page, for some odd reason the 'start indexing' link had not been clickable in Chrome, would work in IE 8 though.
I'll check that issue as well, see if the new Indexing installer fixed that, could be a Java issue, the new update now points to the Church's instance of Java, not the Sun instance of Java, usually ahead of the Church's instance when it comes to updates, so many of the Java problems indexers have encountered may now be moot.

While IE8 may not be officially be supported, it seems to work fine in our center.
The placement of Chrome sounds like a personal thing.
As for canceling Flash updates, that sounds like the handywork of Deep Freeze - it resets everything back to original condition on each bootup.

As to 'IE 8 not authorized', That appears to be the work of the same person who's spreading the rumor that Headquarters didnn't approve IE 8. However, I have been in situations where HQ computers are, such as at a recent vendor area in a family history conference, and they were using IE 8. At the Wiki tech meeting we often discuss anything that comes up where someone mentions a problem in this browser or that, and they have IE 8 at headquarters itself, and the FHL too. So what is the big deal then, sounds like a personal distaste for IE 8 has been pushed out by someone who quite simply has an axe to grind against it, not common sense.
The desktop icon was not installed on the desktops on the new 780s in Utah County, Utah because of this rumor. You have to get it by using the start button menu in XP. Whoever was doing that here involving IE 8 put Google Chrome in as the default browser.
Another thing they did on the Optiplex 780s is force deletion of Flash updates above version 7, you have to update Flash if you want to visit a site that uses Flash every time. Everything now requires usually over version 8 or 9 (see the 'System Check' module in the eLearning area in the training and resources area in the nFS help center), and nFS requires the current version 10.1 for the large tree feature to work properly, as version 10 integrates Adobe Flex better than version 9 does, which is what they programmed the large tree feature in.
It could go back a couple years when IE 8 was released as a beta. In fact, they are testing IE 9 right now as a beta, and that one would not be desired at this point due to the problems that usually surface during a beta, once it's formally released then IE 9 will become the standard browser most people use on Windows besides any others they choose to use or prefer to use.
