    Does anyone know of a way to make "Don't use alternate text" the default
    action when inserting an image? Having to constantly stop and click
    it in slows me down and bugs me.

    Nope, it's 1.7.2

    I just noticed that it comes up 1.0.0 and have no idea why. Oh well, it
    works. It's current and that's all I care about.

    Unless you have spoofed the UA, it should reflect 1.7 at a minimum, not
    1.0. This brings into question whether or not the upgrades you made
    'took'. From here, it certainly doesnt appear 'current'

    In any case, the behavior continues on 1.7, in that the 'option' for
    alternate text is the default. And no, I know of no UI nor prefs setting
    that can alter this, I am unable to locate a bug or enhancement request
    on the matter as well.

    The issue does match the 'help' file on the subject, in that alternate
    text is the 'preferred' arrangement to assist those with text only
    browsers or those with images turned off. It may be a matter for
    settings outside the prefs or UI.

    OK, now I'm curious. I started looking a little more carefully and
    here's what I have:

    - The Title Bar says: Mozilla 1.7.2 - Mozilla
    - Help ==> About Mozilla says: Mozilla 1.0.0 Mozilla/5.0
    (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020530
    - But when you click the link "Mozilla 1.0.0 Mozilla/5.0" it goes to which are the release
    notes for 1.7.2

    As far as I can tell I'm running 1.7.2.

    Weird stuff.
    I thought that might be the case but I wanted to check with the
    community to see if anyone knew of a work around JIC.
