      If anyone knows how to do that without Mozilla crashing I'd appreciate it.

      Hi Jim

      I would like to suggest that you give the Opera web browser a try. Opera is
      VASTLY better than IE or Netscape.

      For example a left click (in Opera) in such a (pdf) link automatically
      brings up a choice of open or save. If you choose open, it downloads it
      first anyway.

      BTW Opera is MUCH faster and version 7 has tabbed pages (each tabbed page
      being a separate url) and MULTIPLE windows, EACH of which can have tabbed
      pages.

      Regards form an avid Opera user

        Hi Des

        I think Opera themselves would like to know of such problems. They are very
        quick to respond to user problems of this kind. Obviously they want to make
        sure their browser will work in an environment that IE does.

        Matbe you could let them know of your "problem".

        Regards

              It's been so long since I installed Mozilla that I don't exactlyhow it
              worked, but I suspect that I used a little shareware program that I
              bought for about $14. six-eight years ago with free lifetime upgrades,
              called Bookmark Converter. It will convert bookmark files between all
              the browsers, Explorer, Netscape. Opera, Mozilla.

              So I probably used that. Here's the URL and I think there is probably
              a free trial period:

                I am asking some advice from the group about Email programs. We recently went into Direcway high speed internet work (Telephones here are lucky to not have hand cranks to call the operator) What they call their Mail Portal defaults into Messinger Express from Microsoft Explorer. That program stinks compared to our former AOL. Times out so if you have to think about what you are writing you lose your mail. No signature and at least I can not figure out how to clip a quote from a letter you are ansering. If you include the input mail it sends everything, kind of hard on group digests when someone has to read through a whole digest to get your answer.
                Could someone recomend some other Email program so we can finally get rid of the monthly charges from AOL?

                  I'm too far from the central office for DSL, and 2) they don't offer it
                  here yet anyway.

                  I'm using Eudora, presently using v.5.2, but have been using it since
                  v3.0. I understand that v6 is out and is very good with spam
                  blocking. One of these days, I might just have to break down and get the
                  paid version, but the ads in the free version are quite small and
                  unobtrusive. You can get it at:

                        little time to train it on what I wanted to see, but it's become a

                          Try this url http://www.cecilw.com/eudora/strategy.htm for a predefined set
                          of filters. These are very good and following the simple instructions in
                          the included text file you can tailor some of the more personal filters to
                          your email address etc.
