Your security settings are set far too high or your virus checker is too cautious or more likely Firefox is trying to nanny you by presuming you're under 11 or something.    Maybe the Firefox "nanny settings" are switched on.

Firefox is OK but nothing special but it does try to add in other stuff on the sly to mess you up.  I use Opera but some web sites are broken by Opera  so I do use Firefox sometimes or rarely Vivaldi (another browser).   I never use Microsoft's web browser unless I'm testing something to see why it's broken in Opera.      You could open a Private Window, set the security lower and try it in there but it's not really worth a lot of effort.   

You can just ignore the warning - I don't remember in Firefox but in Opera, you can just say "I accept the risks".   Opera is somewhat sphincter clenching about it too - it tries to block some of my dynamically set network addresses on my LAN sometimes which is just laughably stupid.

I suppose no nicely decorated trees in Java?

We haven't got a tree or any decorations.

Ohhh.....heathens! 

But I know what you mean perhaps.

We've got a laser thing from Aldi which projects Xmas trees and stuff on the side of the house.  We cheated on Xmas lights!

We don't have a tree either (yet) - it's real one in the garden.  Personally, I'd be happy to have a plastic one or a picture of one stuck to the wall.  Xmas presents have become difficult too.  I've just got everything I need except the jet and yacht but those are hard to wrap.

If we had kids, I guess we would do the whole thing and would have to be a real tree. One less thing store. :D

You could borrow some. 

I am sure many people would lend you theirs for Xmas.

All the shopping centers are christmas decorated and ramming out crapmas music.
It's worse in Jakarta.  Humbug.

Nice to hear the Xmas spirit has reached that corner of the universe.  I never understood why they were into Xmas in Asia, given that Xmas is Christian thing.  But then again, I'm always baffled by the Thai interest in Hitler:

Colonialists brought Catholicism and Protestantism  and, much as only a small percentage of the population follow those religions, there are enough to commercializing the thing worth the bother, that explaining the Santa claws and xmas music in shops.

Hmm.....I was told by a  local once out that way it was just  an excuse to to have some festivities and glittery baubles. I mean, if your baubles aren't glittery, then you're doing something wrong.

If I gave someone a contract to work over Christmas in a grotto with nubile elves, I'd certainly include a clause to make sure Santa Claus didn't have claws.

Otherwise he'd frighten the kids.

My baubles are lovely, as many nubile elves have mentioned over the years. However, now I'm old, fat, ugly, married, and my black curly hair and bright white teeth have swapped adjectives, there have been no recent comments regarding how glittery they are.

In the modern, digital world, I don't think it is possible to set your security settings too high.   ;)

No, not a conspiracy theorist. Someone who has been in the IT business for over two decades and watched how things have changed. :)

Yes, maybe in some places, but it's no good if it becomes unusable. 

As I'm sure you'll appreciate, it's a matter of balance been usability and security.   I usually set them tight and loosen them for specific sites or applications.   Most virus checking packages these days are pretty good at detecting evil intent.  In a lot of cases, it's more than adequate. 

But the most obvious weak point in any system is always going to be the version 1 human being.

I regularly check my kids PCs and run virus checkers on them to see if they've been silly with their downloads.  Usually they have!

Wot?  Bright Hair and Curly Teeth?   The former doesn't sound bad but other sounds rather strange.

Thinking of the nubile elves, reminds of that joke about two blokes looking at an attractive young thing and one says, "looks nice...." and the other says, "you shouldn't be looking" and the other says back, "I'm married, not dead".

Side note: I tried to make that joke gender neutral.  Not sure if nubile elves are male or female. I suppose could have used the term elvessess but that's a mouthful and a little close to Elvis:

http://www.elvisblog.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/Elvis-Elf.jpg

Male, female, any port in a storm. :D

I don't do politically correct, not because of prejudice, more because I firmly believe that especially rubbish use of language causes a lot more problems than there would be without it.
I'm a guy, heterosexual and, whilst older, still functional, multi pleasure giving, and eager, so my nubile elves are female, probably fresh grads with the ink on their degree still wet (intelligent women interest me far more than bimbos).
However, marriage restricts me from making any attempts, and probably save me from the sentence, "Get lost, you filthy old git".

Moving along to the thread title, MERRY CHRISTMAS, not happy holidays or some other crap. I really don't give a flying rats about the holiday but, for Christians (anyone who believes in Christ as the son of the big lad), it's Christmas.

That in mind, 'Merry Christmas' to all who celebrate, but ignore the greeting if, like me, you don't.

I tend to agree Xmas is just silly.  It could be any day of the year.  I suppose it livens up the miserable weather, darkness and cold.  Seems like a long stretch to March and proper spring.   Xmas would be pointless if it was the middle summer as we'd all be indulging in naughtiness down at Balaton.   

I'd be OK with "get lost you git" more than the "filthy" epithet.   

I'll have people know I've always changed my underwear regularly.  At least once this week!    Anything more than 3 days would be pure indulgence - day one is normal, days two and three, back to front and inside out.  I like to get the big jobs done asap!

I suppose "son of the big lad" works for some but God will I am sure forgive you for misgendering her.  Makes more sense for the sky dude-ess to be female that male really. 

All comments in jest of course.  Looking forward to a slow week filled with Xmas banter.  Some hope of either of those locally.

Love it, Crapmas music!
When I worked in several Vegas casinos in the past over the holidays I swear to God I was ready to dig up Bing Crosby's body and make sure he was actually dead!
They put those Xmas songs on a loop and over a 8 hour shift over several weeks leading up to the holidays, I was ready to murder Santa.

Don't get down on yourself over Xmas, Jesus was more then likely born on Sept. 11th. This entire world is backwards, holidays are almost all connected to our pagan past and have nothing to do at all with religion, Jesus or being a "good" Christian... I am 100% not PC.
