Well, it still has some warts and today I had another annoyance that I'm not sure is related but seems odd to come up soon after switching back.

Big annoyance today which I'm sure is still related to Firefox. I'm going to look through the addons but it's just annoying. And yet I'm not sure if some of the stuff I would like to continue or at least find a decent alternative via Opera.

Opera does indeed work with the dl manager (I don't recall seeing it earlier but I may have missed it, would have been really helpful then) but I haven't had much time to dig through the other stuff yet.

Did try DrWeb CureIt as a precaution. Took a fairly long time to just say "yeah, this thing has some nagware!" but at least there wasn't anything major. Might prefer the live disk when I get around to some other stuff but that's still kind of on the back burner.

I'm hoping it's just something in the settings but the initial "let's try with this file" didn't seem to detect it at all.
