  1. Wow man, THANK YOU!!!

    I have Strawberry, was trying to install WWW Mechanize Firefox and the entire process came upon a show-stopper where it would either completely halt/stall during the ‘make’ part or, if Firefox was open, it created a new tab with links and a few controls and then just SAT THERE while spewing warnings about vulnerabilities. I was at this for HOURS until I came across your awesome advice!
