Tested the North American Community DVD I have been working on. Here are
the notes from my test.
I tested the DVD on a DELL Inspiron 1525 running Vista.
Installed the Windows all-lang [all languages] by saving it to the hard
drive and running the .exe file, since it will not install directly
though the HTML page due to a FireFox browser security feature, IE has
an run directly option I almost never use..
Do you know what the problem is with Firefox? It would be nice to fix
this. I think someone mentioned that the DE LibreOffice-box web pages
defaulted to a version of Firefox on the actual DVD. Do you think that
we should do the same rather than relying on the user's browser?
What do you mean by "defaulted to a version of FireFox"? What problem is
there in FireFox? Do you mean the lack of the run a file from a web
site's page? That is a major security feature that is a part of FireFox
and hopefully other browsers. That enabled with IE is a major problem
with automatically running executable codes and possible hacking
"nastiness". I would rather have the save to hard-drive first, then
execute. Microsoft Windows just added a security update that limits
auto-running files off external media, except Movie DVDs and Music CDs.
I have not tried auto-running from a thumb-drive, so I cannot know if
that works. So there is no fixing of FireFox. I do thing the
lower-skilled computer user may want to "download" the install file to
their hard-drive, then install it. We/I may need to add text to the
pages to deal with that type of issue.
Have someone looked at the web page logs to see what is the percentage
of the different browsers? There may be such a log option on the hosting
service. I do not remember if my current system has it, but I think it
should. With that log report, you can decide which browsers are most
likely used to access the site. I think that you should make the web
site/pages work for FireFox, IE, Chrome, Safari [Mac and Windows], and
Opera, Camino [Mac]. These seem to be the standard browser options. My
IE browser works with the DVD pages well with the German site's

page header script. I kept that in the HTML in the DVD pages I am
