Re: Firefox Quantum

Ah, I very rarely watch videos of any kind. I guess I've just been lucky and never had anything refuse to play on VLC.

Sometime later than you, Warwick and I didn't bother with the Feature Pack: I don't use Media Player.

There's a map/directions included in the Avrio newsletter being sent out later today detailing what you describe.

Re: Firefox Quantum

Perhaps that was an error that was picked up before world wide distribution of the current version was complete. Correct the error and complete distribution then either issue a fix for those affected or wait for the next update.

What I've done in previous years is print out the Piraeus page that confirms the payment has been made and attach that to the Taxisnet form

Re: Car tax for 2018

I've had some real fun with this which ended up quite bizarrely. With FF Quantum I printed out the form yesterday (Sat) with no problem then thought, "I'll pay this online now then I can't forget". Go to Piraeus online banking Payments > Popular where this tax is top of the list (Why it's ...

Re: Best places to source DIY products?

Re: Costings

There's one potential problem with gas especially if your house has a tendency to damp, as do so many here. Gas heaters belch quite a lot of moisture into the air which exacerbates any existing damp conditions. Just a thought.

Re: Firefox Quantum

I don't think it helps that the feature to customise does not appear to be anywhere in the menu structure unless I'm missing something. When I first saw the new layout I didn't look at the menu, I just thought, "I don't like it this way", and right clicked on the toolbar. That said, there...

Re: Firefox Quantum

In the new version the "home" control and the "reload page" control have been moved next to the "back" and "forward" controls. I totally agree that his is the most logical place to put them but having got used to them being at the right of the web name bar .....

Re: Spare battery for Lidl drill

Amazon in Germany have it . Could you buy through them? Would they deliver to Greece? There were a couple of items I wanted and intended buying from the UK but they didn't supply one of the items to Greece. I looked on the German site and both could be delivered here: one of the items was cheaper t...

Re: Ryanair departure gate

Usually you can arrange special assistance as part of the booking procedure with the airline. Most (maybe all) airline sites I've looked at during the last few years ask the question, "Do you require special assistance......?" at some stage of the booking system but I don't know (never ha...
