      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Firefox 3.5

Recommended Posts

bugs fixed, security issues dealt with, i dunno.

one thing though, since they aren't charging you for it it's probably a legitimate update rather than a pay for the same thing you had before.

Never did like Chrome myself. Haven't noticed any major changes to FF with the latest update, other than the + sign on the tab bar to open a new tab window.

I tried Chrome and wasn't impressed. And the new FF is not that much different. It does give you the option of for private browsing where your PC accepts no cookies, nor tracks history. And of course there are less security holes.

I've switched to Firefox a few months ago and I like it much better than IE. I like the ability to customize and it has a far better assortment of personalization add-ons and of course the speed difference is what really sold me up front.

Edit: Oops. Too quick on the submit button. I've never tried Chrome yet. From visiting the HSOforum I thought it looked a lot like a clone to IE.

I second all comments about FFox. Got sick to death of IE8 and its predecessors and finally made the switch a month ago. Would never go back. FFox markedly faster and cleaner, just as friends had been yammering about for last couple years. Go for it!!

Since Chrome came out I haven't been back to Firefox. The only thing Chrome lacks is support for some routers where you configure the settings via the browser. At least that's the only shortfall I've found in my use.

I think the lack of upgrade plug-ins is also another down fall of Chrome. Firefox has a ton, but I have heard/read that is changing soon.

I just switched over from AOL and IE, to Firefox about 2 months ago and really like it. Hard to break the habits of opening the old browsers, but have noticed a positive difference in surfing speed and options.

Welcome to the firefox browser brotherhood! grin

My now brother in law turned me onto it years ago. At first I was not impressed. I kept an eye on it and within a year it was all I was using.

Internet Explorer is so 2007! grin

Yep, you where one of the reasons I switched. You brag it up so much, I figured it was worth a try. I got into Firefox when we where talking about video capture awhile back. Another neat plug-in/feature of Firefox.

You don't need FF to do video capture. wink

Oh, I know!

Just finally figured I would see what all the hype was, switch browsers and decided on Firefox.

    • What kind of speakers and how are the speakers mounted? Sometimes they have to be in somewhat of a "box" to create the bass. 
    • sent him a note earlier
    •   I have a Nils and love it, would recommend it to anyone. Although I've never used the K-Drill, I've seen enough positive reviews to feel confident you really can't go wrong with either one. The only exception is if you're reopening holes a lot (especially if you have a permanent house). The K-Drill seems to be better for that. 
    • You need to go to the dmv and register it as a homemade trailer. 
    • I have a 4 channel car stereo, that I installed in my wheelhouse. I only hooked up 2 speakers, the 2 fronts. I’m not much of a music person, more for news/ weather.  The problem is it sounds like dump, no bass, all treble. Is that because I don’t have the other 2 speaker connected? Can all the speakers be the same kind or does a different type speaker need to be connected to the other channels. don’t have much stereo knowledge, so any help would be appreciated.  
    • Thanks for the additional info guys.  I think the back right corner is where mine were too well done also. How about your experiences with Collagen casings - I used up some that were a year old, and they seemed to fall apart a bit or almost get a little mushy.  Should I stay away from old ones?
    • Surface tension should know this one? He's a Nils sharpening guy!
    • My Dad traded a boat last year for a wheel house and I would guess the house was never registered.  We mostly rebuilt it from the ground up because it was too wide to pull down the road.  Anyway, my Dad passed away early this year before he could register or use it.  It was handed down to me and I am a little confused how to get it registered.  I don't have any receipts for anything and it's 7.5'x12'.  So, under 3k lbs is my guess.  Any ideas?
