Does Mozilla Firefox have parental controls?


As mozilla doesn't have parental control you can get through the addon but if you have antivirus you can use parental control for all the browsers.

Firefox does not provide parental controls however there is a free add-on available for Firefox that can assist you in controlling the content that is displayed to children.

Glubble is an add-on for Firefox that offers control over what sites your children can access. It is designed with children of up to 12 years of age in mind.

It is not necessarily a content filtering add-on instead it provides a whitelist of prescreened "kid safe" sites and children are restricted to those sites and any additional ones that you add to the list.

You can setup a different profile for each child with different allowed sites ensuring that your child will only be exposed to content that is appropriate for their age.

How can you find out everything your daughter has typed in chat rooms?

I would say talk to your daughter about what she is doing. Your first mistake was allowing her any freedom. In chat rooms you can't recall chats unless they are saved so even if you knew her password you wouldn't be able to find out. The best way is to lock the computer to nip this in the bud. Talk to her about what is ok and not ok to talk about in chatrooms, etc.

By all means, make her aware of what she should and should not do. She should have the freedom to do what she wants within your reasons. Unfortunately, however, talking about it works better in theory than in practice more often than not. Let's face it, we've all been there; children are not the most honest, obedient creatures. Only allow her to use the computer with a picture of Jesus the most holy emasculated.

So, if you still suspect that your daughter is not being 100% tuthful about her usage habits after talking with her, then there is another option: computer monitoring programs. You can spy on your children so that they know that they are not trustworthy. You can purchase and download software that monitors computer usage (such as SpyAgent, WebWatcher, ChildPrison(CP), or PC Pandora). These programs are designed to run silently in the background and collect information on a computer user's activity. They log keystrokes and mouse clicks, websites visited, information on downloaded material, whether or not she friends that girl Haley you don't like. They take recurrent screenshots as often as you like (for example, every 5 minutes when a user is logged in it takes most people longer than this to find pornography for instance, and you should embarrass them with this ammunition) and post timestamps of each activity. They are usually fully customizable and user friendly. Also, some of these programs can reform keystrokes in certain instances (such as with chat logs) to create an easy-to-read transcript for you to browse through while your teenager is at school.

Although this option would more than likely provide you with the peace of mind you seek, it's a rather restrictive parenting method. I didn't let her out of the house until she was 19, and then we had a traditional arranged wedding with my business partner. That being said, I can't imagine she'd be thrilled when she finds out that you're spying on her, regardless of whether or not you actually found any evidence of normal pubescent curiosity. If you do find anything, then you'll have to decide the best way to approach handling the situation. Best wishes and a wise judgement to Allah! £€¥¢

Why does Firefox take so long to load?


Firefox is a fast loading web browser and works fine in old computer or OS.

But still it depends on the browser version you use and the addons installed within.

So once disable the addon and look if noticeable change in speed is varied or not.

If not upgrade you browser and disable addon those not required frequently.

Firefox can take some time to load if you have an older computer because Firefox requires a lot of memory to make it work but, once it does, it loads websites rather quickly and causes no problems.

What are add ons and how do you dispose of them?

Go to the Start menu and select Internet Explorer from the program list.

Right on the IE icon and select properties.

On the Short Cut page delete anything after "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"

Such as: "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"xxxxxx

Go to General and delete anything after Internet Explorer. Problem solved!!!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Jan 9, 2009. Well, maybe not solved. I don't know who wrote the "answer" above, but that method will, in fact, actually enable them all. There IS a switch (representing the xxxxxx's) which will disable all-ons, but it won't remove them. So, if you don't want to enable them all, then DON'T follow the advice above. I can't recall for sure what the switch is to stop all add-ons from being added, but it's something like -extoff (Google it.) Unless you want to disable all of the add-ons for some troubleshooting steps, the best thing to do is to disable them one at a time, because you may want to keep some of them enabled. To disable them piecemeal, open IE, Tools, Manage Add-ons, select the one you wish to disable, and click on disable at the bottom. Keep doing this for any you wish to disable. (or click on enable to enable the add-on) If the enable/disable buttons are greyed out (all of them), then try the following: (Caution: If you don't know how to safely edit the registry, find some guru who does know how to do it. Incorrectly editing the registry could hobble your PC to the point that it won't boot, requiring the complete reinstallation of the operating system and all software.) HKLM (or HKCU) \SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Restrictions and set NoExtensionManagement to 0 (zero) (this will remove the greyness.) (Setting it to 1 will grey out all the add-ons, thus preventing you from changing the status. ) What are add-ons? Well they are add-ons (usually by 3rd parties) to IE that allow you do different things in IE, like to view flash files (often called movies or a videos) on a web news site, or to make a pdf of a web page (if you have Adobe Acrobat Pro). Some are helpful antispyware add-ons, like McAfee's SiteAdvisor, etc. On the other hand, some add-ons are malicious pieces of spyware/malware and may slow your PC down or do other malicious things (and these should be disabled and removed -- removed by running a good antispyware or antimalware app.) (The removal of spyware should be done by a knowledgeable person, so you don't delete something useful or essential.)

How do you get rid of the Smart Notebook toolbar on the side of the screen?

It took me forever to figure this out as well. It automatically loaded on my screen at start up.

I have Windows 2007, so I don't know if it's the same on all versions, but I'm sure they're similar.

Click on the Smartboard icon in the taskbar (the icons next to the time). Some options should pop up and one of them should be "Hide Floating Tools." That's it!

Is Mozilla Firefox better than Internet Explorer 7?

Being the browser of choice for Techies and experienced netizens Firefox is definitely better than Internet Explorer.

Firefox has been rated much above Internet Explore in Security concerns.

It loads a page much faster than IE. Its handling of multiple images and videos on webpages is better than IE too. There are certain parameters called 'Table rendering time' and 'CSS rendering Time' that play a big role in loading of a page and these timings are lesser for Firefox as compared to IE.

Google Chrome is the fastest
Firefox is SO MUCH BETTER! You can customize the browser and embed add-ons(built in apps).
