    Controls & Browser Ver

    <img src=/S/eyeout.gif border=0 alt=eyeout width=15 height=15>While tinkering with my signature I noticed that my profile shows IE5 as my browser, and thinks I, gotta change that to IE5.5. But I can't find the field to change ... where is it? (Be nice, I'm the kind of person who when faced with a choice of 70 breakfast cereals in the grocery store can't find the one I want even when it's right in front of me.)

    I believe mummy has a script that sees what your browser is and automatically displays it... don't know why it would be showing one thing when you have another... cookie maybe? (no... the chocolate chip ones right in front of you... <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>)
    have fun

    The web will remain a mystery to me; but Help About shows 5.50.4522.1800. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    And keep away from my cookie jar! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    John, according to Mum's notice, if it isn't correct, log out and log back in again...then it will be correct...unless IE5.5 doesn't 'register', only as IE5...to save 'space', or something like that. <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29>

    Just put a combination lock on jar, and don't forget the combination...or else you will be pilfering in others' cookie jars <img src=/S/rofl.gif border=0 alt=rofl width=15 height=15>

    Re: Controls & Browser Ver

    I dunno, I'm real nervous about logging out, last time I logged out I messed somethin up and had to delete cookies until I ran out of milk ... <img src=/S/sick.gif border=0 alt=sick width=15 height=15>

    OK, just kidding. Thanks, Lonnie.

    Click on Controls
    Click on <IMG SRC=http://www.wopr.com/w3timages/member.gif> to edit your private bits.
    Click submit.
    Click on <IMG SRC=http://www.wopr.com/w3timages/viewprofile.gif> to view your own profile.

    Is it right now?
    I believe the info is only updated/stored when you edit your profile.

    BTW - I don't think the profile listing differentiates between IE5 and IE5.5.
    If you're on 5.5 and it says 5, that's as good as it gets. . .

    Re: Controls & Browser Ver

    How dare you! The audacity to tell me to adjust my private bits!
    <img src=/S/rofl.gif border=0 alt=rofl width=15 height=15>

    But seriously, logging off, logging on, changing my profile, logging off & logging on again have made no difference. Just read your last post. As Emily Littella would say, "Never mind". <img src=/S/igiveup.gif border=0 alt=igiveup width=31 height=23> IE 5 will be close enough until IE 42.n comes out.

    Re: Controls & Browser Ver

    That's right. You can't adjust it and it only displays the major numbers. I've added a note to the HELP - just hit the HELP button where you're displaying a Profile and you'll get the key.

    If it's a combination lock on the cookie jar, what good is a key? <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29> <img src=/S/innocent.gif border=0 alt=innocent width=20 height=20>

    Also identifies AOL as IE5.

    That's what it must announce itself to be, then.

    At this time AOL is using a modified version of IE but will be going to Netscape in the near future.
