comment Reading an encfs volume from Windows?
Thanks Roman. This feels more stable than Safe does. I have both of them installed now.

comment Reading an encfs volume from Windows?
Nowadays the free version is crippled. (Both "Classic" and Boxcryptor2) It doesn't support filename encryption, so I don't see how it could be encfs compatible.

comment Is the Ask.com toolbar installed with Java considered spyware?
Great work on the Petition! Now the Java control panel allows disabling 3rd party software installation prompts. (Under Advanced settings).

comment How to make shortcut to ftp site open in windows explorer not IE
This is true today (2014-11-20) as well. Make a shortcut like in the answer by @cloe or @nhinkle, and then check the check box in this answer. If it is not checked, the default web browser is launched. So the check box seems to have nothing to do with Internet Explorer. It instead affects the behavior of explorer.exe. Oh what a nice mess.

comment How to make shortcut to ftp site open in windows explorer not IE
@FelipeSabino please check the checkbox status for "Enable ftp folder view (Outside of Internet Explorer). Without this checkbox, the FTP URL is opened in the default web browser (Firefox in my case). Very confusing.

comment What is the “Google Update” Firefox add-on?
@INTPnerd what it has to do with Firefox is that it is yet one more chance for the Google software to be started, in case the user has tried to disable it through Startup, Task scheduler, and the Google Update process.

On 64bit, only the one under Wow6432Node is needed.

comment How to bypass the “secure connection failed” warning in Firefox 33
I can confirm that FF33.0 fails with (Error code: sec_error_invalid_key) on the same site that 32.0 worked on prior to upgrade, on the same client computer. It also still works on Ubuntu/Canonical FF30.0 as always. (same as the screenshots).
