I use IE.

It asks if I want to display both secure and non-secure items and I usually just say yes.  Not too big a deal (I don't think), just an extra click.

I tried it with IE, and told it "No". This revealed enemyofthestate's avatar, which I already mentioned, and PintofStout's Yahoo messenger icon. Apparently the <img...> tag generated by SMF for that returns a Yahoo-resident image.

I could find no way to disable this IE feature, not in "Internet Options..." and not with a Google search (though lots of people have complained abou it). I suppose I could change the code that displays the Yahoo icon to use a static icon that doesn't reveal whether you're logged in to Yahoo...

I could just take it off.  I haven't logged on to Yahoo for months.

Hey Bill

I'm getting the same thing that Pint was.  Is there anything that I can do about it?

Switch to Firefox or convince whoever has configured their profile to showt their Yahoo IM to remove it.

Switching from IE to Firefox is a good idea all by itself. More secure. Faster. Tabbed browsing rocks. My opinion, of course.

Thanks Bill.

What's Foxfire and where do I get it?  And just in case I don't like it, is there an antidote?

Firefox is a very, very good browser.  I highly recommend it, if my opinion means anything.

Antidote?  Just uninstall (it's much easier to work with and more cooperative about that sort of thing than IE) but I don't think you'll find it necessary.

Tin-man linked to where to find Firefox. Works on Windows, Macintosh, and Linux. Auto-updates, if you let it. Some people like Opera better. I prefer Firefox, by a nose, though I haven't tried the new Opera 9 release.

I confess to the sin of envy of all you guys who know/understand so much about computers and computing. I sure hate being the only dumb one.  Every time I run across a conversation like this one I feel like I should be put in the corner with one of those pointed hats on.  Sigh.....

I work on people, not these nasty little machines which were invented by somebody with a REAL EVIL MIND.   If you have a heart attack, diabetic induced seizure, fall off a ladder, etc. I know what I'm going to do for you.  Oh well....   Sure wish Bill St. Clair were my next door neighbor so I could get lessons from him for one of my wife's fine dinners. Maybe even fire up the ol grill.  Offer stands, Bill, or anyone of you who are so blessed should you find yourselves down here in this part of the country (west part of Tennessee).

Same here. I expect it'll clear up soon. Meanwhile, nice to have two entry points to TCF. If the problem hasn't taken care of itself by tomorrow, one of the admins can probably look into it.
