Heads Up for Web of Trust (WOT) Users with Firefox 39

Starting on July 5, 2015, the most recent update for WOT;

If you can no longer open hyperlinks in gmail check your WOT add-on. There has been a new re-issue of the 20150705 update today and it still carries the date-stamp 20150705 on your add-ons tab, but open the More link where it is listed to check and make sure the date is Monday, July 06, 2015.

If it is not re-install the add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...browsing-tool/

I only mentioned gmail because that is what we use, if you use a different web-mail service and you are having problems disable WOT to check. This may also affect any Firefox forks, I didn't have this problem with IE10.

Looking at the support forum there may be two more problems with the 20150705 update:
  • WOT has been crashing Firefox39 for some users.
  • The add-on does not auto-refresh itself when tabs are switched.
I don't have the first problem, but I do have the second. Look for a new update.

Looks like they fixed the tab problem

The update checker on the add-on/extensions page didn't work so I had to D/L'd from the WOT site, the one in the quote. Let the D/L do its thing and restart FF; My new version stamp is 20150708 - Wednesday July 08, 2015

Heads up: Users cannot upgrade to 8.1 Pro if 7 User Profile was moved?
I got two cases on this today. It was the subject of an Ed Bott article a year ago though I hadn't heard anything until now. It seems some users wanting to upgrade to 8.1 Pro have been stranded and are blaming moving User profile based on Ed Bott's article Don't move your Windows user profiles...

I went to MS site to check upgrade just for the heck of it and all gadgets are gone. Tried reinstall and not only did I have to be admin, which I am, I was told to go and beg "trusted installer" for permission . System restore to the rescue. They are all back. Art.
