    It's just as well I wasn't drinking my coffee when I read that, otherwise I might just need a new keyboard.

    On a more serious note, I also don't like downloads from cnet/download.com. Didn't Agnitum used to have a direct download link?

    The update for version 1.16 is simply a definitions update. No update to the base software.

    Regretably, they've made almost exactly the same mistake as was made in some previous updates (see my first post ) and this 16-12-11 update will also trash the Registry by removing some JavaScript entries.

    For this reason, the update is NOT recommended!

    James_A got a reaction from Tarun in How to have Firefox show the http url prefix again   
    Also, if you don't like the previous change, made in Firefox 6, which was to have only the base domain in black and white and the rest of the URL in the address bar in a rather weedy pale grey, then you can modify browser.urlbar.formatting.enabled to false as well.

    So, setting browser.urlbar.formatting.enabled to false will put everything back to black and white
    and setting browser.urlbar.trimURLs to false will show http:// again, which is doubly useful because there is a bug with cutting and pasting URLs when it is missing. That bug is marked WONTFIX for Firefox 7.

    No, and not likely to, because Google is making ALL profiles public as part of Google+
    Any that are not public will be deleted at the end of this month.

    If you haven't reviewed your Google Account settings lately, you should check sooner rather than later.

    See the writeup from The F-Secure AV people, who consider this a Google privacy failure: Is this a Google privacy fail?
