For reasons I don’t understand, Firefox keeps crashing whenever I try to upload a photo to WordPress. This is particularly annoying as, like most bloggers, I’ve been taking loads of photos so that I can prove to the rest of the world that the sun really did shine! And, of course, posting photos means I don’t have to engage my sun-baked brain in the business of writing a coherent, witty and interesting post. (You at the back, I know what you’re thinking. Ha bloomin ha!!)
But, alas, with no means to upload said photos, I’ll just have to make my excuses until another time. It’s hot, you see, and the sun is shining and I really, really want to get back outside to enjoy it while it lasts. Well, be in it, anyway. The pigs are knocking over their water bowls left, right and centre, as they desperately try to cool themselves down, the dogs seem to need lots of trips down to the river to escape from the heat (even Midge is getting her tootsies wet!), and that garden won’t take care of itself…
After wongablog’s reassurances, I’ve been trying to get Google Chrome up and running but have failed miserably. At first, I couldn’t install it on my account so I logged out, logged back in as the administrator and installed Chrome without any problems.
Yay, thought me.
So I logged out, logged back into my account and … couldn’t find Chrome anywhere.
After a bit of fiddling with the firewall, I finally managed to download it into my account but have thus far failed to get Chrome to connect to the internet. As you can tell from this post, Firefox works without any problems and a quick (and reluctant) test with Internet Explorer proves that my connection is a-ok.
I’ve been through the Chrome help pages and found them to be as useful as a wet paper towel in a flood, and as easy to navigate as an upside down map of the wrong city.
So until this bug gets sorted, I’m sticking with Firefox which has never let me down, even if each add-on slows it down. And if the whole thing crashes coz of one lousy tab. Come on, FF, you can do it!
