    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Anybody find any cool Add Ons for Firefox ? Lately, I ran into Ghostery, NoScript, and now this neat one called Flagfox. Description from PCWorld... "If you're wondering how it works, Flagfox bases its flag choice on the actual location of the server you're connected to, rather than just the nationality of the domain name--which may be different.
After installing the plug-in and restarting Firefox, just head to any site and you'll see the flag at the right end of the address bar. If you click the flag, you'll get a new tab containing detailed geographic information about the site.
If you right-click the flag, Flagfox pops up a list of other handy tools, including Whois, SiteAdvisor, Web of Trust, and URL-shortener bit.ly. Head to the settings (via Tools, Add-ons) for the plug-in and you'll find a dozen or so other options you can add to the list." Pretty cool.

Just imagine all the crap (spam) you can add to your browser that you don't want? :(

I don't use add on's but that just me.

Not all addons are bad.

I consider "NoScript" a MUST have addon. It protects against various malicious things. I would also recommend "BetterPrivacy" and "Addblock Plus".

No thanks....There will be no uninvited guests on this machine ; )
Then you might want to take some of the advice given here. Most of what has been mentioned KEEPS those uninvited guests away from your computer. :wink:
