    Defaultothers having issues like Dan?

    JUST A NOTE TO ALL NEW READERS:
    According to the Google Safe Browser tool there is nothing wrong with JustLabradors.com. You can see the report here: Google Safe Browsing diagnostic page for justlabradors.com/forum

    " 0 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2010-04-30, and suspicious content was never found on this site within the past 90 days."


    ---------------------------------------------------

    I am computer illiterate, so I don't know exactly how to ask this. I don't think he would mind if I copied/pasted directly from an email from him. So here goes :

    As I e-mailed Linds, I did ask IT if there was
    any company support for merging over toward Firefox. I've been on JL on
    Firefox @ home and had no problems. Unfortunately, the company is solidly
    into IE at this point and unwilling to support the swap. Even as an option.
    IE is becoming shaky as I get into the "New York Times" site particularly
    -- and I do that from a work standpoint almost daily. So I positioned my
    question from that standpoint: Since FF is more reliable when it comes to
    the NYT (haven't had a single issue) and IE is getting unreliable when it
    comes to the NYT (almost daily hangups), and I NEED the NYT for work
    purposes, can we go to FF?

    Answer: No.

    Even from home. When I ran JL thru IE, I got a Trojan Horse. I was able to
    rout it out immediately w/a scan, but still. I cannot believe people are
    accessing JL thru IE and having not a single issue. Maybe they're just not
    aware????

    So. Here I sit. I'm really scared to try JL using IE @ work because of the
    damned viruses. I already created some panic here last week. I don't want
    to get on IT's radar screen again by risking it. If the admins can give some
    solid assurances that JL thru IE represents NO (or very little) virus
    threat, I'd chance it.

    I love having a mac... both at home and work.

    I hope Dan is able to come back soon. His work is retarded for insisting on using the world's worst web browser.

    I logged onto JL from home (which I rarely do) and I have IE. I didn't get a notice about a virus or anything like that but yesterday morning my home computer is infected with a virus and I can't do a thing with it. I have no clue if it's from JL or something else but I have never had a virus before. Now I have to take my computer to some computer store and have it fixed!! Grrrr.

    So far at work it's been ok...but I am getting nervous.

    It's really unacceptable.

    I hope something is done quickly. Considering people donate to keep it running. You shouldn't pay to get viruses.

    I got a couple of nasty trojans from JL last night. I run Firefox and have AVG 9 Pro. It took me most of the night to get rid of them. It's coming through a java script.
