dunno if it's been mentioned before, but I just downloaded a new (free) browser called firefox. For those not too computer savvy this would be used in place of internet exlorer or netscape &c

anyway, the webpage here

http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/all.html

shows you the whole list of available languages and operating systems for the browser...to my great surprise, under "I" is "Irish," so I downloaded and installed it and it's great. I had long ago given up on internet explorer and netscape for sheer suckiness, and I found I like firefox alot (Safari users out there will know what I mean). All the menu items and selections, as well as all dialog windows and buttons are Gaeilge-only (except for a couple bookmark items that are default English but can be renamed)...

I'm like a kid with a new toy...

I've been using Firefox since the earliest versions. Haven't used IE in many years(THANK GOD!). Something that those of you new to Firefox might like is a little config change that speeds it up quite a bit:

Type about:config in the Address bar and hit enter.
Type pipe in the Filter editbox.
Set network.http.pipelining and network.http.proxy.pipelining to true.

I can't get Firefox to work as Gaeilge on my Mac. I downloaded everything, and I see the Tools > Languages > ga-IE (Irish (IE)) option on my menu, but I can't select it.

If I try running the command line option to start it, it just comes up with a prompt to create a new profile.

Any suggestsions?
