I noticed Firefox didn't do it, but I think it is junk. Everytime I install Firefox, within a 2 or 3 week period, something goes wrong and I have to uninstall something, one of the add-ons, or complete re-install of Firefox.

After doing this about 10 or more times, I have had it with Mozilla. Also the Better Privacy feature works for about 2 or 3 days, then won't open.


Should be called Frustra-Fox
Not sure what you are doing to FF to get these instabilities....I have never had to re-install any FF or add-ons and I have used it for over 4 years. It has been the most stable browser I have used and I play with them all.
Agreed, that sounds like a seriously unstable FF install. Never ever have I had a problem with FF. The only problem I did have was in May/June 09 (I think it was version 3.4) when I updated and the initial FF startup would take a long time; this was documented on Mozilla forums by plenty of other users and Mozilla resolved the issue within a matter of days. So, I still have no idea why people have problems with the FF startup (time lag) - I am still thinking maybe particular add-ons?

Have a look at Vodafone - Content control - Restricted access

Vodafone say:

If you're 18 years or over, you can easily remove Vodafone Content Control. Go to About Content Control below for further information and details about how to remove it now.
And why would you need to get round the content filter anyway, what've you been up to... .

If you don't have any ID (or a credit, since they hiked all the tax up) then how do you buy booze?
