I stumbled upon a weird personal artifact. I found the very first day I downloaded Firefox, documented on a forum on Aug 20, 2004. I was forum moderator for MonsterSmallBusiness at the time. It was a bit of a secondary support path for our clients at the time. On that day, a user could not get their GeoTrust icon to show up. Check it:
Full Version: Make My Geotrust Logo Show When Using Firefox
Aug 20 2004, 12:36 PM
My geotrust logo does not show up when using firefox browser. Any way around this? any other browsers affected? also, I was using a beta of mozilla before, and the site looked horrible, luckily it seemed to be only that 1 release.

Which site was it that you were looking at? I looked at both sites in your signature line and couldn't find the Geotrust logo on either of them.
Ya know, I won't feel like a complete geek until I have also downloaded and become familiar with this browser. :nerd: Since this is something I aspire to, I'm downloading it right now. I am getting it from here - http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/ - unless you suggest a different site/flavor to download?

It should be displayed here.

Thats funny, now its showing up. When you click on it however, it doesn't display the info. I guess thats ok.
By the way, that is a fine place to download it. Very lean browser, very nice.

I have firefox now! Very nice. I checked the page and I can see it just fine. I see it here (with www). I don't see it here (without www) but that is typical and can't really be fixed. Firefox's built in popup blocker didn't allow me to get the popup at first, but then I clicked the little X in the bottom left and it opened.
I like this browser, reminds me of Netscape 7 (which it probably should - duh, it is the predecessor)&ellip;
I've never gone back to using Internet Explorer full time and I see no change in that any time soon. Some time after it first came out a few years ago, I did switch my main browser to Google Chrome and I get the most miles out of that these days. But Mozilla is still there in my back pocket when needed.
