adding a website to the autoplay block exceptions in firefox?

enes sarıbaş
 

Hi all,

In the firefox options/privacy, it was previously accessibly possible to add a website to autoplay block exceptions. However, I am unable to do it now. Is anyone able to add websites to the exceptions?


Re: how can I tell if a web site is legitimate?

Brian K. Lingard
 

Dear Steve, Troy & List:
First, I would write to MLB.com customer service asking if 115worldseries.com is an authorized reseller of their goods. Also mention the name of the realty firm the customer service number connected you to and their Google Mail address.

Based on your experience this far, sounds doubtful as to legitimacy.

Not sure of the retail marking on sports jerseys, however, on clothing it is usually 50%. If the store pays $50 for it, full price is $100, goes on sale at end of season for $80, on Black Friday for $70. If the web site is outlaw, you want MLV to use their big-name lawyers to
Close them down immediately.

There's no easy way to solve this one. And this is exactly how we get roped in--by finding a good deal, or what looks like one. You know what good old P.T. Barnum said about suckers being born every minute. While you may not qualify as one just because of this error, you learned
something: investigate before laying your money down. I'm sure you also know the old adage, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
You may get lucky and get exactly what you ordered, but again, when the merchandise comes, have someone with good sight examine it carefully for obvious defects such as bad stitching, thin material that appears as though it won't stand up to wear and washing, etc. If the Website says it's made in one country but the label says it's made in another, there's another sign you've been had, but by then it may be too late.
Good thing you paid with PayPal. While sometimes they've been known to be slow, they do get your money back in the end.

And of course, there's good old Google, which you can use to find reviews of the site, its products, and practices. Read the reviews on the site as well. If you find too many good ones, that might be a tipoff. Also, when you're buying sports memorabilia such as clothing, you also want to make sure it's from a licensed vendor. You might decide to buy it for investment purposes in the hope that your player or team does something memorable in the future, and then you have something of theirs from the past that could be resold at a handsome profit. But if it turns out that the item for sale was not legitimately licensed--and teams and individuals license their stuff with a single company a lot--then you might just be left holding the proverbial bag. Sports stadia parking lots are filled with vendors hawking these knock-off products and the police officers are always cracking down on them. They're counterfeit merchandise if they say they're licensed and really aren't. Hope you don't wind up getting took.

Hi all,

I ordered a baseball jersey this afternoon, and my mom was helping me
look and when she found it, I didn't realize until after I made the
order that it's on 115worldseries.com and not on mlb.com which is
where I normally order baseball things from. On top of that when I
called the telephone number on the site to ask questions I was
connected with a realty company, and last but not least the jersey was
regular $139.99 but it was on sale for $59.99. Oh, and the contact
e-mail was a Gmail account.

All of this started making me suspicious but unfortunately, I didn't
realize all of this until the order was already made. Fortunately, I
made the purchase with pay pal so I can get my money back if I either
don't receive the product or if it's not what I want when I get it,
but is there a way for me to tell in the future if a site is
legitimate? I usually make purchases through amazon.com or in this
case the official baseball site, but as I said above my mom found this
jersey and I didn't stop to think about how suspicious it all sounds
until after I made the purchase.

Re: A Computer Weirdness that turned out Positive!

Hi Gene,


Oh I usually consider the Pluses and Minuses in just about every
situation.  However, since this Gold Wave thing just started a couple
weeks ago, I just thought it was weird, but this time it was a Good weird.


As far as relying on this new Mystery Feature, can't say I am totally
counting on Gold Wave shutting down a minute or two after the Lecture
has finished, so I am ready to edit out the length of time when Gold
Wave was still recording Dead Air.  Since this is what I've done now for
the past few years.  So far, Gold Wave shuts down about a minute or two
after the lecture is done.  Which for now, is a Good Weirdness.

Re: 32 bit and 64 bit question

Not directly but it could be run on 64bit emulator software, so it would be slower.

 

Any competent installer for any Operating System will be able to tell if you’re trying to install it on incompatible hardware and will prevent you from doing so.

 

If the installer is daft enough to blindly install regardless, the 64bit Operating System simply will not boot once installed.

Re: A Computer Weirdness that turned out Positive!

Maybe, maybe not.  If Goldwave has a setting that automatically stops recording, if it were me, I wouldn't use it.  While this may be rare, what if there is a technical difficulty which causes the audio to stop and then, resume after a pause long enough to cause Gold Wave to stop recording.  You will have missed the rest.  Perhaps you can set the time so this should never or almost never be a problem, such as to stop after two or three or five minutes of silence but when something is automated, the possible consequences need to be considered.

for the better.  Not Kidding!


For a long time now, I have used Gold Wave to record and Edit stuff I
listen to from the Internet.   Sometimes those recordings can go for an
hour or more, up to 5 hours at times.


I have always had to manually stop the Recording when the Lecture ended,
but not any more.


No matter how long or short the video, when it ends, Gold Wave stops
recording, and then waits for me to do something.


There may be a Switch inside Gold Wave that allows this to happen all
the time, but up until the last couple of weeks, I've never found such a
switch.


Some how some way, if there is a Switch, it has gotten flipped, and I
have no idea how it happened.


But, at least this Weirdness turns out to be a Good one, instead of the

 I just tried mine and I can’t find any way to put the files back in the internal memory.

Hi List,
When I use the info key on my 2nd gen victor stream,  it says the internal memory has 5.6  gigs available.
How do I place  and remove files from this memory?
Thanks,
Monte

Vacuum Question

Robin Frost
 

Hi,
I was just wondering if anyone has had experience using either the Hoover ONEPOWER or the Dyson V11 Torque cordless vacuums from a blindness perspective. I.E. are the controls
buttons or touch screen as the Dyson mentions a led display? I appreciate all insights. Thanks in advance.
Robin

Hi Kerryn,
 
If you're running J2018 and up & Windows 10 and your screen is dark I believe you're referring to the Screen Shade feature.  Below are 2 ways of enabling / disabling.
 
1. Hold down the, Insert key, and press the,spacebar, to activate the layerd keystrokes feature, now press the, Print Screen key, and this will toggle Screen Shade on / off.
 
2. To check if the Screen Shade feature is on or off, go into the quick settings menu with, Insert + V, or Capslock + V. if you are using the laptop layout
 In the search field type, shade, and press enter.
Next, down arrow one time and JAWS should state whether Screen Shade is checked or nott.
 If it's checked pres the spacebar to uncheck / disable it, then tab to the, Okay button and press enter to save and close quick settings.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go Rams!

Re: Brand new to Mac, is Macbook Pro A1502 a good starter machine

When I first received my iPhone 7 Plus, a woman helped me set it up with all of the various apps. I asked her which operating system she preferred. She told me that she liked the windows operating system better than the Mac operating system because she thought windows was more flexible. But she also said that she thought the iPad Pro and its operating system was just as good as windows. Go figure! This just shows that every opinion is different. You know what they say about opinions. LOL

If you want to save $50, you could go for an iPod touch instead of an iPad. The iPod touch does everything the iPad can do. Only difference is that its screen is a lot smaller. I use my iPod touch for most things these days. But if you are in school and you need a bigger screen for classrooms and such, then I'd say go with the iPad. I really like iOS. I also like my windows machine. But I do not like macBooks and mac computers with all their interacting and stop interacting ways of doing things. But iOS and windows are both nice. And for my smartPhone I just use a xiaomi mi a1 android phone with tracFone. I love the fact that iOS supports so many braille languages, now I can finally learn Japanese braille if I wish.
