  1. "Minefield" is the code name for the nightly "Trunk" builds, where Firefox 3 development is taking place. I'm on one now, build ID: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9b3pre) Gecko/2008012504 Minefield/3.0b3pre ID:2008012504 The file structure is not the same as Firefox 2 - instead of history.dat and bookmarks.html, bookmarks and history are now in one file called places.sqlite. No doubt this poses a challenge for CCleaner development. However, since Firefox 3 was supposed to be released by now I would hope that CCleaner is ready to support it when it's released.
  2. I'd say there's a definite need for a program with that functionality and a simple GUI - most users are justifiably scared to edit the registry, and nearly as intimidated by command line operations. This is a great idea.
  3. What a shock! I don't stop by for a while, the place goes all Piriform. Seriously, I was wondering how long it was going to continue to be called the CCleaner forum, since it was no longer just for the one program. Well, now I know. I like the new look, very sharp. Way to go!
  4. It's not officially released, but it's a pretty good bet that is the build that will be released. 10:00 AM today is the planned official release.
  5. I run CCleaner - both scans - after every browsing session, it's never caused problems like that. Running it often shouldn't hurt anything.
  6. A few KB here and there can eventually add up to a lot. If your Registry becomes clogged with a lot of invalid entries, it can significantly slow down your system; if it gets bad enough it can produce system instability and frequent crashes. While you don't necessarily need to clean your Registry often, eventually it will need to be cleaned. Myself, I prefer to just keep it cleaned as I go along. Installing ERUNT is a good idea, I've done so myself as an extra measure of safety.
  7. It's index.dat files that are marked for deletion on startup, temp internet files are deleted outright - and if secure file deletion is enabled, they should be overwritten. @ keystagegolf - CCleaner doesn't clean for anyone but the current user. Don't think you need admin privileges, but I could be wrong.
  8. CCleaner will optionally overwrite file up to 7 times. Look under CCleaner Options > Settings to configure it.
  9. EasyCleaner does that: http://personal.inet.fi/business/toniarts/...ne.htm#download It displays the selected files and lets you choose which to delete. Still, I would be very cautious about adding file types to the normal set.

    The problem with Fasterfox is that it prefetches all the links on each page, if you visit a page with many links on it this can cause the page to load very slowly.
  11. EasyCleaner's "Unnecessary Files" scan works very much like that; many of those file extensions are pre-configured, with the option to add others.
  12. I think what the OP is trying to say is that there's a long list of cookies in there, so it's a big hunt to find the right one; wants a way to just tell CCleaner "keep cookies from this site" while browsing. I doubt that's ever going to happen, it would complicate CCleaner too much. My suggestion is to run CCleaner more often.
  13. The solution for 1. is uncheck Temporary Internet Files. Dunno about 2.
  14. Firefox 2 has built-in session restore, so you don't even need Session Manager. Crashes are still annoying. Haven't had any with the nightly builds in a long time, though. rridgely, 2.0rc1 is supposed to come out next Tuesday.
  15. 18 extensions is not a lot, really. Especially if they're small, lightweight extensions, which most of those TonyKlein listed are. My most important extension is Bookmark Backup. Despite the name, it can back up all your Firefox profile data automatically - and you really need to back that stuff up, data loss from the profile is not that rare. Here's my complete list (inserted with the Nightly Tester Tools extension): AllowClipboard Helper 0.5.3 BBCode Bookmark Backup 0.4.2a2 ChatZilla 0.9.75 FlashGot IE View Lite 1.2.1 Make Link 2.0.3 Nightly Tester Tools 1.1 QuickNote ScrapBook Talkback 2.0b2 WebmailCompose 0.6.6 I'm too lazy to describe them all. A couple I got because I run test builds - Nightly Tester Tools can force extensions to work with Firefox builds they weren't programmed for, among other handy features; ChatZilla is an IRC client I got so I could go on the Mozilla Testday channel. The current release of Bookmark Backup is 0.4.1, I'm testing an alpha of the next update. Talkback is installed along with Firefox, either randomly or you can chose to install it if you do a custom install of Firefox; it sends a report if the browser crashes. It says it's 2.0b2 because that's the Firefox version I'm running (it's a nightly build, the official release of 2.0b2 won't be for a week or so).
