Ctr-Shft-A v. Firefox's Ad Block: I'm using Firefox 0.9.3 and just installed its Ad Block extension on my Windoze XP 'puter. It's pretty cool, but if I want to build a link on SpoFi, using Ctrl-Shft-A, only the Ad Block window comes up. So, the SpoFi link builder doesn't work now. And since I'm probably the only person with this setup, I expect you to fix my problem immediately. Seriously, I don't want you guys/gals to fix a problem I created for myself. I'm just sayin' is all. And if this has been brought up before, please create an ignore list and drop me in it. Thanks.

You're not the only one with that setup, NoMich. I said "screw IE" months ago as well. You can temporarily disable Adblock by going to Tools/Adblock/Preferences, then unchecking the "Enable Adblock" box. Post your link, then re-enable Adblock. Thats' the easiest way I've found around it so far...

Aha, works like a charm. Thank you very much for that kernel of wisdom.

So what is this "Ctrl-Shift-A" of which you speak? Is it like clicking the "new post" link in the top left corner? /Runs linux, uses firefox // Even with the Adblock extension, Ctrl-Shft-A doesn't do anything...

I switched to firefox 0.9.1 on Win2k a while back, no adblock, and ctrl-shift-a doesn't work for me. I hope I'm still 31337... test

Above, I mentioned that ctrl-shift-a is an IE thing. I meant that the list of shortcuts only displayed in IE. Now that I am slowly removing my head from my arse, I am realizing that they displayed only in IE for a very good reason.

NoMich, who is that dicknose with the incredibly poor manners?

It seems like you could reassign the CTRL+SHIFT+A combination inside Firefox's preferences or something . . .

Chico: that would be Judith Arndt and apparently she was letting the German bicycling big wigs know how she felt about them not picking her friend to be on the team as well. Yeah, and this happened just yesterday or two days ago at the Olympics. Funny!
