Firefox Ditches Windows 8

Windows 8

Windows 8 OS

As per the recent updates, Mozilla, the company behind Firefox, will no longer support its browser for the Windows 8 operating system. This is due to the low usage rate of the operating system. Johnathan Nightingale, who is the vice president of Mozilla Firefox, said that there are many interrelated reasons for dropping the production in an announcement that was made recently. First is the flat adoption rate for Metro, Microsoft’s original name for the latest Windows operating system’s user interface before changing it to the Windows Store Apps UI. Secondly, there were not enough Firefox Windows 8 Metro users to justify production of the web browser.

The low number of the testers would amount to numerous bugs to fix in the final product, as per Nightingale. “When I talk about the need to pick our battles, this [browser for Windows 8 feels like a bad one to pick: significant investment and low impact," Nightingale explained. The use of Windows 8 for desktop peaked in Sep at 8.02 percent use, but it has been flat since Nov at the six percent plus mark as per the data trends from Net Applications. Windows 8.1 for the desktop computers is currently at the 3.1 percent mark. The move of Mozilla is a bit surprising, as the company officials early on had been much vocal about overcoming the obstacles that they faced in developing Microsoft's new Windows platform.

Windows Store Apps

Windows Help

None of the browser makers other than Microsoft could build for Windows Store Apps side of Windows RT, as Microsoft did not offer access to any other browser except IE, as per the Google and Mozilla engineers. One of the Mozilla lawyers described the situation as a potential antitrust issue. The third party browser makers were restricted to making what Microsoft termed ‘a Metro style enabled desktop browser.’ Browsers of this kind will be able to run only if they were made the default browser on x 86 or x 64 computers that are powered by the latest Windows operating system.

The Chrome browser from Google currently runs on the latest Windows systems if it is made the default web browser. The computer should also support hardware acceleration and the browser will not run on PCs with high resolution displays.

Adding A New Identity In Outlook Express

Outlook Express Help

Outlook Express Identities

If you share your computer as well as Outlook Express with others, you might think that there is a need to set up two Windows accounts in your PC. However, you need not have to do that if you can share the Windows account with them.

Outlook Express can be used to handle multiple user accounts, by making an identity for each user. This is sometimes the only option, like in case, where the version of your Windows OS does not allow for more than one user. Provisions like identities for every person using Outlook Express help get rid of unnecessary confusion. An identity is blocked from all others, and comprises its own accounts, signatures, settings and address book. This makes it so there are no inter-account mix-ups when more than one person uses the application. Identities can be password-protected as well.

Adding a new Identity in Outlook Express

Follow these instructions to add a new identity in the Outlook Express program.

  • Go to File, open Identities, and select Add New Identity…
  • If you want to make more than a single identity for a person, choose a username for an identity, and enter the same under Type your name. Hit OK to confirm.
  • If you want the other user to be able to set up their own Outlook Express identity, then when asked Do you want to switch to the [second user] now?, click No.
  • If you are the one who is going to use the additional identity, then choose Yes to switch to it right away. To export the address book from your email account, set up a new account and start synchronizing.

    Switch Identities

    Outlook Identities

When you hit Yes, the program will tell you of a single unread message (the welcome mail). You will see the name of the identity there. However, there will be no folders carried over from the other account.

Switching Identities

When you have more than one identity set up, go to the File menu, and select Switch Identities. What is hard to understand here is the Log Off identity button, which closes Outlook Express program on clicking it. So only hit the OK button after picking the identify you want to switch to.

That was on how to set up a new identity in Outlook, and how to switch between identities when you have more than one. For similar tech support guidelines, check out our other posts. Call our Outlook Express help line for resolving issues with your program installation.
