Bronze,
you might want to run Adaware, or SpyBot to see if you have any *fun* helpers on your machine. It looks clean at this end.

The fine was then withdrawn due to the cameras being *uniquely maintained and calibrated* . <br /> <br /> I would like to thank the State of Victoria for providing an inexpensive method of collecting this ...

The only problem is, according to the salesman, you cannot enter waypoints into them and then go looking for that waypoint (eg caching). The salesman was being inventive...

Who knows, maybe pulling the batteries out and leaving the thing in a drawer for a year might magically fix it! :roll: Don't be shocked it it did clear with something weird. For our central heating remote it was installing the batteries in reverse polarity for 20 min's ... and that fixed it. cheers...

Be a tad careful with Firefox as it does break a lot more often than Mozilla (remember that it is still in a Release Candiate form). Our testing has produced some not insignificant problems with the critter. If you prefer to live your life back a couple of steps from the cutting edge Mozilla in a br...
