Re: Mozilla will automatically disable all plug-ins in Firefox

Do you install security updates from MS?
Including those ones, those "killbits"?

Killbits are "no you can't"?

Do you use that service from Google (also included in FF) that says, "no you can't" when you want to visit a "bad" website?

Do you use the OpenDNS service, & one that filters, oh "bad" stuff? Perhaps porn or warez or whatever "bad" might be, you know, one of those "no you can't" DNS services.

Do you specifically try avoid particular websites when you browse, because you know they are bad or harbor bad things? Well guess what, in that case you are your very own "no you can't".

And in the end, for every "no you can't", well there is a way to "just say yes".

Apparently not so. At least not with Win 8.

You're speak of what, the OS itself?

It's OT but briefly, as one example, Microsoft will not allow a user (even with full Admin rights and UAC disabled in the registry) to turn off Automatic Maintenance in Win 8. You can disable it, but it re-enables itself before its next every 24 hour scheduled maintenance).
