comment back and forward buttons in Firefox
Yes, I see the screen you posted on screencast. (But this also doesn't show the buttons, and neither are they on the toolbar.)

By reset I mean "reset to default state" (Help | Troubleshooting information | reset). I've updated to version 33 now, and they're still not there.

@Richard - When back or forward didn't apply the buttons were grayed out, but still there. Thanks for your reply.

comment Cannot install *any* software on Windows 8 PC
@BigChris - Doesn't help: same messages, probably because she is logged in as administrator already, like I mentioned in the question. Thanks for the suggestion anyway.

comment How can I use an old PATA hard disk drive on my newer SATA-only computer?
Why are you answering a more than six year old question which had already 8 answers, one from OP himself, which solved his problem?

comment Can't install (most recent version of) Internet Explorer
@BigChris - the sfc seemed to be sufficient: "found corrupt files and successfully repaired them". IE works again. Thanks a bunch. If you make an answer from your comment I can upvote and accept it.

@K.A - That's it! I thought I had checked each of the 10000 options. Thanks a bunch. If you make it an answer I'll accept it.

comment How can I change my NAS SSID and wireless password?
Thanks, but these I already found. I'm a bit afraid that my question has nothing to do with DSM at all ("that has to be done at the wireless access point or router"). Thanks anyway.

comment For missing (.dll) files
You deliberately hide useful information: the "*.dll" instead of the actual filename. Why? Don't you want help?

If you need to place a 5 page text into a cell you're using the wrong tool.

comment How can I increase Excel's graph axis area?
Better yet, resizing the chart area fixed the axis, thanks! (There are ten settings for silly options like "shadow, glow and soft edges", but none for essentials like resizing. Typically Microsoft, shall we say? Also, why show resizing handles that don't work?)

comment Noscript button missing in Firefox
@Nam - I'm not sure about that. The add-ons manager says NoScript is enabled, so I presume it will be that that blocks the scripts. It's just not visible. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Thanks for your reactions anyway.

comment What mobi readers for PC are there?
Thanks. I wasn't aware of the Amazon reader, guess I should have been. I'll try that one.
