Re: Firefox dialogs will not read properly

Hello Adrian:

My final comment...

Of course, if you get a problem on a web site that does not contain personal
information, such as the front page of an on-line store, then the problem of
losing your personal data, goes away.

The difficulty is, what do you do, if the problem you are having, only
happens on the site where personal information, is stored about you!

Coming from the UK, it was weered having to remember, to fold my money, in
order for me to identify the individual US currency notes.

Sincerely:

Dave Durber
