Firefox Destroys my Computer

    In addition to destroying my computer, firefox did an estimated
    $17.000 damage to my home when my computer burst into flames, only
    minutes after installing it. The computer was destroyed and my home
    office caught on fire. Fortunately I was able to put out most of the
    fire with a home extinguisher, before firefighters arrived. Most of
    the fire damage was contained in the office room, but the entire house
    sufferred from heavy smoke damage.

    Now I know why it was named Firefox !!!

    Almost the same thing happened to me last week. I installed Mozilla, and
    a huge green dinosaur fell from the sky, crushing my computer. Man, was
    I lucky to escape.

    Nothing has happened to me yet - almost a week after installing Firefox.

    However, thanks for the warning.

    I'm wearing a hard hat now, and the garden hose is right next to my computer.
    (I used to be a Boy Scout - "Always Prepared".)
    BTW, I'm keeping my Viagra handy too, just in case . . . .

    That is why it is safer to installed Gnome :)

    Yeah, but keep the viagra away from your hard drive. It could end up
    getting TOO HARD !!!! And remember, if your hard drive is still hard
    after 4 hours, call the doctor.

    I hope you've hired a good decorator to furnish those suites.
