  1. DULLES, Va. - America Online Inc. launched a free, Web-based e-mail service on Monday, departing for the first time from a fee-based subscription model as it moves to compete with free, and increasingly large, e-mail accounts offered by the likes of Google Inc. and Yahoo Inc.

    The unit of media conglomerate Time Warner Inc. said the service will provide users with two gigabytes of storage, along with protection against viruses and spam. The mail program is being marketed as an extension of the company's popular chat application, AOL Instant Messenger, and users of that program will be able to use their existing screen name for their e-mail address, the company said.

    Google's Gmail service currently gives users about 2.3 gigabytes of storage and is gradually raising that ceiling. Yahoo offers 1 gigabyte for free and Microsoft Corp.'s Hotmail allows 250 megabytes.

    The company also upped its offerings for paying subscribers to its traditional America Online e-mail, giving its nearly 80 million accounts unlimited storage space. AOL said it is the first online service to offer unlimited e-mail storage.

    The company also said it will allow multiple simultaneous log-ins for dial-up connections, an offering previously reserved for high-speed connections. The change allows members with different screen names, but on the same account, to log in at the same time from multiple locations.

  3. Many of the themes and extensions are having problems with the new update. On my work computer, I had firefox running fine til the update as well. When I reinstalled it with a fresh version without any additives, everything was fine. When I started installing some extensions, that's when things went bad and I could no longer use firefox, even if I uninstalled it and reinstalled it. I'm personally thinking it's something to do with the registry. When This first happened, I hacked ( :D ) the registry on the work computer and took out some of the entries (don't remember which ones now though), and then firefox worked fine. Several days later, it quit working again.
