Tech Support Question
So, this is a group well-versed in the ways of browsers.
For a while (since a past "upgrade"), Firfox has helpfully offered "schoolgirls" as a completion when I start typing into the search bar, looking for Bruce Schneier's blog. I was at first taken aback, then saw the fine line that apparently divides "stuff the user actually typed" from "stuff that a lot of folks seem to end up typing when they start out with s-c-h".
Do _all_ the police who might end up practicing computer forensics on me know this? Even if ultimately inadmissable in court, it could lead to an "accidental" night in jail and a beating or two.
And then there are the actual typos. None incriminating so far, but annoying in a feature that was apparently intended to "speed up" entry. In the old days, such stuff was kept in more-or-less human-readable files that a session with vi (or emacs, no religious wars, please) could set right. Now they are apparently binary or might-as-well-be obfuscated-xml, and my only option when things get crufty is to delete _all_ my history. A giant step backward.
Any Reg readers know where these files hide (FC4 and MacOS 10.3, if it matters), and have a secret decoder ring that would allow a human to examine and edit them?
