Firefox will directly download from as long as you are not using Windows 10S.  Windows 10S versions only support UWP/Metro/Modern (or whatever MS call them this week) apps, not the old Win32 style, old skool apps.

There is a upgrade from Windows 10S to Windows 10 Pro in the Microsoft Store. It was free at one point, but might be chargeable now.

As to 2 PCs sharing browsing history, are you being stupid enough to share a Microsoft Account?  If so, get your own account. They are free, after all.

Started collecting bits ready for next service now that it thinks it is nearly due.

Should really wash it at some point too :-[
That reminds me, I must dig out the laptop to reset the BBP's service indicator.  Due to the way SDD - JLR's tool of that era - works, it is a bit of a faff that takes the best part of 15 mins, by which time it declares the battery isn't charged enough ;D

As to washing, I purposely don't do that too often, as that annoys the jag forum mob ;D

I was on a Microsoft ISA Server 2000 course in Cirencester Castle.

Took it to the Lake District a week ago. And brought it back again today.  It's rolled over 140k now.

F*cked something else today. Took the plenium off to inspect the nearside spark plugs, and on refitting realised the NS plastic bagpipes to plenium expandible tubey thing was split. 20 odd quid off eBay, so may be fixed early next week.

Also realised the A/C rad is 'bent' from the Bambi incident (which explains the loss of A/C), and I'm not convinced the main rad isn't damaged too. 'dangle berries'.
I can't help but laugh, I understand your pain all too well.  A simple job rarely is that straightforward.

Given the effort (money) needed to sort out the pairing, and that depaired ones aren't that expensive, I'd only bother with properly depaired ones.

Your 'superior' preface-lift exits had a habit of sludging up on me though, so not convinced that was really any better.
They all sludge up at about the same rate in my experience, and benefit from an annual clean. More often if parked under trees in Autumn.

Yeah, 'ave some.  Although he really need to spend less time coasting.  One of the pedals should be on the boards at all times

Superior Prefacelifts exited, sensibly, into the wheel arch void.

Inferior Facelifts exited, stupidly, on top of the chassis leg, to drain down the chassis leg under the aircon pipe exit, until it finds a way to drip to the floor.

Actually, about 10 years ago, me and bro, and the women had a sit down chinky in Oxford.  That came out well over 200 even back then.  But it was a full on blow out.

Fortunately, it was Bro's turn to pay ;D

I've never known Crossland to have arrows, on any car.
