It was all the way at the bottom with a contact us link.


Weird...Firefox shows only a few tiny pics with little text. I went in with Explorer & all info was showing. Usually Firefox does better than Explorer...not in this case.

Mine is the same no link at the bottom, everything seems to be widely spaced out.

The problem with their website is it is created using old school methods and more then likely Microsoft Frontpage which outputs stuff that only ie can render correctly. Although I was on their site with Opera and still seen the link for contact us so I don't know what firefox would display on there. I did hear back from them. I will post it in a new post.

Well if there is enough people that maybe we could arrange a group buy of some sort I can talk to the guy. Or if there is enough interest I can talk to him about a gttalk discount.

Then I guess I owe you an apology Dan because I didn't think that they were that dumb to not have that message show up with Foxfire. Normally, I use Foxfire but I switched to IE to go there because you guys said that there were issues with my fave browser. Not for a second did I think that Foxfire wouldn't display that message or I wouldn't have tugged on your chain. :laughingteeth::laughingteeth::laughingteeth::laughingteeth::thumbs:
