Firefox started crashing; removing prefs & deleting caches didn't help, so removed last installed addon (ImageExchange update). Don't know if it has anything to do with the problem. Will reinstall in a few days if Firefox stays stable to get a better idea of whether this plugin could have anything to do with issue.
add-on is disastrous. eats cpu and causes instability. moreover it pops up "imageexchange uninstalled" doubled tabs so I had more than 20 tabs to go about closing and as soon as I got them closed, it did this again. I hate browser redirects, but teh instability is very very bad and guzzles cpu. I went through this bs 3x and each time takes over an hour to load FF, so really not very happy with so much wasted time. So now because it was making this bad glitch, I really did uninstall it.
I had just updated your ImageExchage, so do not know what it was. Within last week when I did all updates and patches.
It gave me very serious headache last night of about 3hours as it was playing socerer's apprentice and everytime I tried to shut "sorry you left, ImageExhange unistalled" it would open two more of those horrible pages and browser redirects so in the end I had more than 20 tabs to close and every time I'd get all 20closed and try to shut down to really uninstall the d thing, the sequence would happen again. Nobody needs 20 or 30 reminders that they unintentionally or unintentionally uninstalled a jittery hyperactive add-on. So it was offensive recurrent offense. 3hours of this is enough to tax the patience of a dead cow.
this is FF 3.6.15 because I just got another one of those very offensive FF pop-ups demanding me to shutdown and install FF 3.6.16
I can't just stop working everytime somebody decides to update their add-ons this is really very offensive in FF. By the time I got done trying to shut down ImageExchange, I was too exasperated to do any work. It sucked cpu and dragged on browser.
FF is very exasperating bowser anyway but is only one that allows for any real work to be done on internet and has plain text capability with add-ons. And as photographer, ImageExchange is useful, but if it goes about like Mt Etna, I've enough frustration already.
chrome didn't get hacked because it crashes before it starts up. 5tabs of Chrome suck more cpu than 90 tabs and 20 windows in FF. Chrome can't handle streaming, flash or life in general. It's for people who play in the sandbox, not photographers or writers.
for safari or opera that would be better.

computer is very very clean, so not something wicked this way comes.
3days last week ran extreme, bitdefender, housecalls, malwarebytes and just about everything else.
had a nasty that went about making ZZZZZz and eating hard drive space with folders of ZZZZZZ
malwarebytes found it.
Ff is grossly unstable and a real pain to use, but the only browser that has good add-on tools for web work.
chrome is the type of browser you need when you sit on the throne,
safari has the best streaming capabilities, but almost no add-ons. It's confusing because you never know what tab is open--too arcane in design
opera is incredibly fast but changed its structure and a bit hard to learn
and now I have to do the reconnect with FB again? sorry this is really a bit much for my patience.
Yep, finally had to uninstall. There were too many regularly-used sites where vital elements were not loading properly or at all. These sticking points seemed to be a conflict between an image-based window and what the add-on was attempting to read. Some were static but not jpg (integrated into an action), and some were animated.
There must be something in the coding that is possibly too broad; very fine line to mess with, no doubt. Definitely a challenge, and one I think is worthy, but will likely take a tremendous amount more work and headache.
Best of luck, and I'll keep checking back on this add-on.
I’m mad at Conduit, Bing and ImageExchange to have wasted my time by changing my computer setting.0Your app installed Conduit, which changed my home page to Bing, my new tabs to bing and put Bing by default everywhere. I understand that Bing is so poor as a value for its user that it has to installed itself in a way that is similar to a hijack, and any application that force me to change my setup without making it clear before has no merit to be kept on my computer.
This would be incredibly helpful as a stand alone software. What I would like to see is a software on my machine that I could feed in final projects and have ImageExchange then tell me who and where to buy all the stock images from. For confidentiality reasons we can't upload our client's projects online just to have ImageExchange do image checks for us.
If you do ever create the stand alone version, please let us know!
A few weeks ago I discovered PicScout referring a web user to my photo website. The link is in a PicScout page that is not accessible without a login.
I had never heard of PicScout before, had never submitted photos to them or agreed to a link, so did some checking. I registered with PicScout, installed their software and used it to look at my own website. It indicated that it had some photos similar to mine, but none identical - so it seems that nobody has stolen my pics and registered them with Image Exchange. I emailed PicScout a number of times asking why they would have a link to my website. Each time I did, someone at Getty Images accessed my website, but nobody had the courtesy to answer me.
Next I downloaded the User Guide and attempted to upload four images as a test. I followed their instructions to the letter, and was able to load photos, but unable to fill in the details and register them. I contacted them, using the "contact Us" facility a number of times, but without response.
There doesn't seem to be any way of "unregistering", and PicScout and Getty Images seem extremely difficult to contact or deal with, so I guess I'm better off without them.
