Kinda OT.. Double underlined words

BabyBlue11371(z6 KS)August 26, 2005

I cliped this from my post to the grapefruit sooty mold thread.... I recomend anyone else to leave feed back.

"Dr. Manners, And anyone else annoyed by the double lined links causing slow loading pages and troubles with going to threads and using back button. Here is how I STOPPED that!!! put curser over a double underlined link don't click.. wait for box to pop up.. in the upper right hand side of the box it will say "What's this" Click that.... new page will open. on that page close to the bottom of the page is a place to click to get rid of the stinkin double underlined words. it will put a cookie on your puter and any time you dump you cookies you will have to do it again.. But it is worth it!!! at least it was to me.. GW pages are loading better for me.. faster and I'm not having trouble with the back button or clicking on thread links.. I also sent them a "review" of their services. although not a bad idea. the "glitches" have almost caused me to quit GW. I don't mind the ads. after all that is how they pay for the pages.. but something that causes slow page loading and various other little problems is not good... I'll include the link that I used to get it off. but I don't know that it will work properly..

Hope this helps!!

You could stop using that buggy, insecure, slow browser that comes with Windows and get a decent one.

Firefox (absolutely free)or Safari for you Apple people or the full version (not adware)of Opera are a world better.

Wooops! Spoke too soon. ALL browsers are actually susceptible. Color me embarassed. But the page in BabyBlue's link didn't show such an option when I went to it.

Now, to really disable this "feature" go to the below web page and you will see a link at the bottom:

How to disable
Click here to disable IntelliTXT.

Click that link and it's off.
You can also turn it back on with another link there.

However, Firefox still beats Internet Explorer hands down!

Following the link or directions above this should be the 5th paragraph on the "feed back" page..
"If you would prefer not to see any double-underlined words and corresponding advertisements, please click here. Deactivation requires the use of cookie technology. If you should delete or refresh your cookies, please note that the service will be re-activated automatically. "
