Happy New Year!

According to the Chinese calendar on the wall today is the first day of the new year, 4702 – the year of the rooster.

There is an update for yesterday’s instructions on the Firefox work around. I did not know that you also need to change the Firefox configuration by typing, in the window where you usually type in the URL for a site, the following:


This should bring up the configuration file and display line after line of configuration strings. Use the filter to find the lone instance of “idn.” Once found, double-click on that line and change the default from true to false.

NB: Doing this may make it impossible to access certain sites. If you need to access such a site, you may want to use another method of avoiding the vulnerability.

It’s going to be a really busy day today so I gotta go.
