Firefox Question
Tue Apr 02, 2013 2:34 pm
  • Is their a reason why videos on NFL.com or team websites don't play on my firefox browser? I have ad blocker plus. Is that the problem? Anything I can do about it?

  • Yes, it's an ad blocking extension. It should have an allow list you can put seahawks.com and nfl.com on.

  • A better question is....Why do you use Firefox when there is Chrome?

    That's not nice. Sac's the one that trolled me.

    Also, Mr. Writer, how about you go properly hyphenate "bad-ass" on your forum title?

    Yeah, that's right. Put 'em up, chief! :beating:

  • Roland, coming from a poster missing a space in his user name, this response is not surprising. May I refer you to the Urban Dictionary, regarding this issue? Also, this is a topic discussing Fire-Fox, so let's not get all off-topic.

  • Many forums do not allow spaces in usernames. By default, when I register somewhere, I don't include the space so it's consistent and I don't have to remember if site X has a space in it, or not.

    You, on the other hand, have no defense for your lack of hyphenation. :D

  • I know it's in the dictionary. I think you misunderstood what I meant. It's annoying that, increasingly, words get "legitimized" through popular use without grammatical correctness.

    Perhaps I should start using phrases like "awesomeguy" and "coolbro", maybe they'll get popular enough to make it into the dictionary and be "legitimate", too.

    The dictionaries should use it with a hyphen, or a space.

    For new words to become popularized and imitated they have to be perpetuated by people who are generally well liked by a wide audience. I'm not sure you qualify.

    Zing. Harsh toke, bro. However, what you said isn't a requisite. Widespread use is all it takes.

    Many of those that claim to be "badasses" in real life, actually are. True story. :)
