Where to Download Offline Installers for Firefox and Chrome 4 months 1 week ago mchldpy

at rhiannon,
Thanks for the Chrome info.
Firefox is pulling off of the https://ftp.mozilla.org/ website.
Anything made by Mozilla, from the first version to the latest version, all flavors (Win, Linux, Mac, x32 and x64) all the Languages, offline and online (stub) installers. Most of the (older) versions have a 2015 date as a " last date modified" but I think that's when they were added to the FTP list and version 42 on up have the Public Release Date as the last modified date.
Hope that made sense.

thanks again,
michael

There's a real need for these types of programs. I've used a few over the last 20 years or so. The one I currently use is Desktop Restore. It's a shell program that puts Save Desktop and Restore Desktop in the right-click menu. After you add a new icon you simply right click and Save Desktop then when something rearranges your icons you right-click and select Restore Desktop.

I've used Iconoid for years. The advantage it has, is that it doesn't have to be disabled to put an icon where you want it. However, you do have to tell it to save icon positions when you have the layout just the way you want it. The most needed options are available within a right-click context menu. There are some other options too, You can find it here: https://www.sillysot.com/. I have been using it since Windows 95, I think.
Please note: "Iconoid works on Windows 8 & 10 but hasn't been extensively tested on either."

Easily Download YouTube Videos With This Free Program for Windows 4 months 2 weeks ago Geert

For whom it may interest: here's how you can download a video or only the music without installing anything:
When you're watching a YouTube video and you want to download it (or just the music), in the address bar of your browser type 'pp' after the 'e' of YouTube and press enter.
Eg. you're watching the video at the web addres https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Hh6qJuA5jg, then update the address to https://www.youtubePP.com/watch?v=6Hh6qJuA5jg and choose your download.
Easy as pie.

[Edit]: It looks like it doesn't work anymore. (Sorry I didn't try it anymore before posting) Too bad. :-(
Most of the time that kind of services don't last long. On the other hand, no doubt others will take over.

How To Stop Desktop Icons from Rearranging in Windows 4 months 2 weeks ago rhiannon

It depends on your icon settings - if they are set to align icons to grid, auto arrange icons, or both it will place icons in different places.

If only auto arrange is checked it will add a new icon to the next space in a group of icons.

If only align to grid is checked, it added a new icon to the approximate center of the screen.

With both align to grid and auto arrange unchecked it placed the new icon in the approximate center of the screen.

Whatever configuration your desktop is when you installed it is how it will stay. If you add a new icon and want it somewhere else, double click the icon in the system tray to disable it, move the icon where you want it, and double click the program icon in the system tray again to lock the desktop.

Thanks for this. I've tried everything I could find since 2005 but nothing actually (stopped) them from moving. Most everything put them back pretty good. (but still a pain in the buTTocks)
I noticed you talking about new icons go to the next available grid space ... but it will lock in a non-grid type format or personal preference-like pattern, right?
Sorry if I missed that info.

Have you tried right clicking on the +Add to Firefox button, choosing Save Link As, download the xpi, open Add-Ons from the settings menu (three horizontal lines top right), click the Gear icon, and from the dropdown choosing Install Add-on From File?

If that doesn't work, you might try an earlier version of the add-on, available from the add-on page.

I'm asking because I installed it on two Firefox browsers (not synced and at the moment not the same version) on my desktop and laptop. It also installed in Waterfox on desktop and laptop with no issues.  Using version 70, 64 bit.

Started using Handbrake a while ago, now discovering that sometimes it doesn't rip/encode the whole disk (got to within 10 minutes of the end of a movie only to have it END!). Also, built a new computer and upgraded (finally) to Win10: Handbrake has install problems: it appears to install (appears on the installed programs list) but there's no icon, and the executable is nowhere to be found. If I instead download the .zip install folder, I can start it but it crashes immediately. Not a hopeful start, and with prematurely ended rips, not sure why I was installing it in the first place. Moving on.

If you want your chosen layout to stick you need to uncheck the "Let the system position window" option, and if you want your customisation to apply to all console windows (Command and PowerShell, standard and elevated) you need to make the changes in the defaults rather than properties section.

A quick way to change and set the layout is to first drag/resize the window to suit then go into the properties>layout tab and note down the new values there then go into defaults>layout and set these same values.

Yes. The majority of computer readers these are blasé about security risks. They don’t read security articles. Attention spans have reduced, and all that matters is that you have a good selfie

To inform people, you just need one sentence at the end of reviews:

For software, we need to state that the program has been screened for malware

For photo upload sites, we need to remind people that the Privacy policy may allow developers to onsell your photos, so strip your photo metadata first (and provide the link how to do this)

As I’ve said to Rhiannon, it’s better to find utilities to perform tasks, rather than uploading your data to anonymous websites. Instead we normalise this behaviour

Tech support should always keep people informed, otherwise it becomes part of the problem

Photo privacy - what no one actually tells you

https://www.consumerreports.org/privacy/what-can-you-tell-from-photo-exif-data/

Thanks. Proves my point that we are way to permissive with the sharing of our photos. Metadata can track the address the photo was taken !
Techsupportalert was based on providing people with software info that is screened to be safe

Can we not be recommending any more website uploading services that request photos or documents, without making clear the associated risks

So if you recommend a photo upload site, please recommend that personal photos be first stripped of their metadata
This is basic information in 2019

Gizmo’s Freeware always tries to safeguard the interests of members and visitors including download advisory notices for some software but there is a limit to adopting a nanny type of presentation.

Pretty much everything you do in life has security and privacy risks especially using Windows and yet here we are as predominantly a Windows resource site. Also, for years we have published a series of security related articles including the one linked below yet the readership numbers for these are insignificant compared with Best Free Live Wallpapers which pretty much sums up user preferences.

https://www.techsupportalert.com/content/how-stay-safe-while-online.htm

The same applies to Windows security software where 95% of all users never bother to read the vendor’s documentation and thus end up with an incorrectly configured system churning out results they can't understand and most likely ignore.

In all honesty therefore it is the responsibility of computer and web users to educate themselves about best safe practices because there’s a limit to how much sites like ours can help. MC - Site Manager.

And don't forget that, unless you've deleted it, photographs often include GPS data along with time and date stamps. For the average person that probably doesn't mean much, but for those with massive data harvesting and analysis capabilities (Google, etc.) it means being able to know your exact location at a specific time and date. And beyond that, to extrapolate your travels if enough information is available.

No, I'm not really that paranoid. But the data is there along with the capability to analyze it, should someone want to.

The great thing about Techsupportalert is that when discussing computer software, reviewers always mention that software has been scanned and it doesn’t contain malware. In other words it probably functions as you expect without uploading data back to developers or coinstalls bad code

Unfortunately when it comes to online sites that upload your personal data (and photos are very personal data) there is no similar warning about how our photos potentially are being used. Online sites in my opinion pose an equal risk as installed software and malware

We have already learned that many sites are harvesting peoples facial photos and selling them to companies that are creating facial recognition software for government, policing and commercial uses.

It’s time we stop uploading our photos to anonymous websites. We have become so permissive to this practice
Even Facebook and Instagram are probably harvesting people’s photos for this reason

In 2019 you would be crazy to be giving strangers your most personal data. Yet everyone does it and we encourage people to do so
