  1. Omg > it works!!! thanks so much.
    the only problem after that was that my Firefox could not load the images of facebook, twitter etc.. after i restart my com.
    Was so worried then I try to google it up and I went to tools > options > advanced > network > clear cache.
    then after that was able to load the images and assess the web.
