lj layouts and grocery hell

So I took several days before saying anything about the new lj layout, mostly because I've lead community websites, and people are very resistant to change. everybody gets their grooves, you know?

but it really bugs me how, in safari, I can't highlight stuff on the comments page. I mean, WTF?

Also, in safari, if I go to the end of the page, it's always just a big blank nothing. there's all this pointless extra space underneath the comments. I didn't realize what a habit I had of doing option+down to read the most recent comments until this issue came up.

so I'm trying to decide if I 1) learn to deal 2) switch to firefox or 3) figure out how to go back to an old lj layout (they've had that option when they've made previous changes, but I hate doing it, like i'm letting progress down).

in other news, i'm in an AWFUL mood because I went to the grocery store for method cleaner and romain lettuce and they didn't have method cleaner and the lettuce looked like someone crapped it out onto the produce bin. so I left without getting anything, and in my fury, didn't realize until I'd walked to my car that I left the two eco bags I'd brought in the shopping cart. suck! ran back in and my cart was gone, bags were gone, nobody around had them, I went to customer service and they took down my information. I'm so mad. I only have (er, had) four eco bags because you can't find them anywhere in wichita, the place I bought them from the one time just had them, like, that week. I could order some online I guess. anyway it's a beautiful day so I guess I could postpone homework to go take a walk and settle down a little.

5:37 edit - the store called, they found my bags. okay world sorry I was so angry at you :)

They do have it. Check the most recent news post for a link.

Gr. I couldn't highlight stuff in Internet Exploder either, plus the whole hover over the menus and try to remember which one contains the thing you want to do, in the new scheme and in Xcalibur, just PISSES ME OFF. I changed it back to the one with the blue bar down the side with all the links in plain sight straight away. It's supposed to be a website, not a memory test!

I'm all for Firefox. I tried to love Safari, but the reality distortion field has been shattered for me. Its sad, but Safari renders things really oddly sometimes.

Use Firefox. The very fact that you're not already doing this scares and disturbs me. Then again, I went from Mosaic to Netscape to Mozilla (suite) to Mozilla Firefox so I'm a bit biased. Of course, I was using Eudora since '95 or so until I switched into Thunderbird. I'm aware that Microsoft occasionally makes crappy internet applications, but why in the hell would anyone want to use them (or Safari for that matter)?

Largely because FireFox on the Mac is not as big a slam dunk as it is on Windows compared to the native browser. Mac Firefox has long standing memory leaks and no integration at all with OS features like KeyChain that a lot of Mac users expect. Firefox is a nice browser to be sure, I keep it around for use once or twice a year when a website doesn't work right in WebKit (Safari's renderer, I use OmniWeb most of the time personally) but it's proven wholly unsuitable for full time use to me on the Mac.

On Windows it's an entirely different story for me =)

Yay, Method cleaner! Their products are fantastic!
