> As part of its deal with Mozilla, however, [Yahoo!] says it will now recognize Do Not Track again but only for Firefox users.
Okay, when you need a “burner” email account  - choose Yahoo using Firefox and that should be marginally safer.

Obligatory culture reference:
Don't you just love the Occam's Eraser that is the Italian justice system.
Even the judges are ignorant of what Karl Popper told them.
Not only that, they take years to delay decisions so their lawyer mates

Wrong it was Philip Larkin not Sir John Betjeman
This be the Verse
In Breughel’s Icarus, for instance: how everything turns away
Quite leisurely from the disaster; the ploughman may
Have heard the splash, the forsaken cry,
But for him it was not an important failure; the sun shone
As it had to on the white legs disappearing into the green
Water; and the expensive delicate ship that must have seen
Something amazing, a boy falling out of the sky,
had somewhere to get to and sailed calmly on.

iPlayer from overseas - harder
Since Jan/Feb BBC iPlayer has black listed known TOR exit nodes in the UK - so you can't watch Dr Who from overseas using TOR (not TOR friendly anyways).
But it shows how they've smartened/tighten up.
Some paid Proxy service/VPNs are blocked too - I've heard.
Bear Tunnel worked for me though last week.

Reg wrote: "an update to Firefox 31"
the update is, in fact Firefox 31
Edit the sentence:
[PDF/A or HTML are now the standard “for viewing government” while ODF is now expected “for sharing or collaborating on government documents.”]
How about the word editing in place of the touchy feel "sharing or collaborating " ?

Perhaps the Garbage Collector could be run on this topic - could save a lot of angst, and free up some memory - probably
Marc Andreessen chips in now.

I encourage all Mozillians to keep going. Firefox OS is even more daunting, and more important. Thanks indeed to all who have supported me, and to all my colleagues over the years, at Mozilla, in standards bodies, and at conferences around the world. I will be less visible online, but still around.
IMHO MS should extend the tile interface into a full jigsaw metaphor - only when you solve the jigsaw do you get to go to work - fun for all the family
It is a panic if (for no reason of your own) your update repeatedly fails - as it did for us:

Well at least I won't have to change my reg password - as it doesnt even bother with https to protect the login >_<
That probably coz most of the time we commentards at the Reg write such nonsense - no hacker could make sense of it.
It's a shame Chrome can delete it CEO like Firefox can.

Microsoft Word 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013, and Office for Mac 2011 are vulnerable, according to Redmond. Microsoft Office Web Apps, Automation Services on SharePoint Server 2010 and 20103, and Outlook 2007, 2010 and 2013 when using Word as the email viewer, are also affected.
Legacy code or what!
Their latest Web Apps replicate a bug of Word 2003???
