22105Re: [NTB] notetab does not refresh in the browser
- Mar 27, 2011Hi Kerry,
No problem. We have all been there.
To see your FF version, click on "Help | About".
Don't be too concerned about the FF warning re about:config. It is quite
safe to look at the options and make simple changes. The warning is just a
CYA from Mozilla similar to a warning on screwdrivers to wear eye
protection. Besides, that was only meant to unequivocally prove that it was
a cache phenomenon. You don't normally want to run any browser without
enabling cache. It would significantly slow you down.
Don't sell yourself short. I doubt you're "dingy" at all.
Re your signature: no client email app should overwrite a quoted message
but I don't use Outlook Express so I can't help you there.
Were you updated? (Is your FF version= 4.0?)
Did the Shift-click refresh solve the problem?
Please report back so that others who may have similar problems will know.
(As well as satisfy our curiosity<g>.)
