Usually I 'heart' Firefox -- But NOT Today.

I'm usually pretty crazy about Firefox. But I decided to update today to version 49.0.2 -- and shortly after I had a MAJOR CRASH of my desktop (blue screen of death style). And it's still f-ed up right now. (sigh)

Thanks a TON, Firefox. (Not.)

I saw several places online where people were complaining about system crashes related to Firefox. I suppose I'll have to try and find an earlier version and revert, or not use Firefox at all. Disgusting... I don't want to deal with this right now!

And I have enough computers issues without dealing with Firefox issues, by the way.

Apparently my friend June found a really AMAZING computer guru to help her with her desktop, where she's now running Windows 10. I'm not at all familiar with Win 10, so I've been no help to her at all since she got the new OS. Well, good for her! I'm glad she has the help...

I want to go to Windows 7 here at home (finally). I'm still running Win XP. Not sure when that's going to happen, though. We're going to get all the office machines up to Win 7 fairly soon (the goal was before 2017, so there's not much time left!).

Talked to Donn a couple of times today. We're dealing with Symantec issues at the office.

Marilyn was at the office until past 9:00 tonight. She was working on Jeff's contract (it's time for him to renew). And she had a ton of other work, too. Lots of HR stuff going on...

We just went to McDonald's when she finally got home and grabbed takeout for dinner.

Loving "Designated Survivor" (which was on tonight)!!! It's our favorite new show -- and there are a number we enjoy.

Washed my hair today. Did more 'tweaking' in the garage and the kitchen, as well.

Marilyn's Fitbit isn't working -- no idea why. I guess we'll need to replace it. (sigh)

Can't think what else I'm forgetting. Oh, yeah. Got the bid on the work for the house from Hector. It's WAY, WAY HIGH. There's no way we'll be able to go with him. Now I need to get some other bids, quickly...

That's it for today, anyway.
