Sometimes when you upgrade Firefox to latest version, Sweepstakes List fails to recognize it.
I?ve created the registry fix for your PC that should resolve issue between Sweepstakes List and Firefox.
However, there is a chance that it would not fix the issue or interfere with your Firefox installation.
Run it at your own risk !!

If you agree to use this fix, you?d need to do following steps:
1.   Create System Restore Point (to be on the safe side).
2.   Check version of Firefox by selecting Help -> About Firefox.
2a.   If Firefox version says 64-bit download file firefox64.reg by right-clicking on link and saving to Desktop via Save Link As...
2b.   Otherwise, download file firefox86.reg by right-clicking on link and saving to Desktop via Save Link As...
3.   If file saved with .txt extension, rename file to remove .txt extension (agree on confirmation dialog).
4.   Double-click on downloaded .reg file to run it.
5.   Answer Yes to confirmation question from Registry Editor.
5a.   If necessary, answer Yes to confirmation question from User Account Control.
6.   Click OK when done.
7.   Restart Sweepstakes List.
8.   Restart Firefox.
9.   Now Sweepstakes List should allow to select Firefox.
10. Delete downloaded .reg file.

General Sweepstakes List Forum / woodbox.com tip
« Last post by Webmaster on February 03, 2018, 09:33:58 pm »
One thing I've found...

Say, you have some woobox.com link, like http://woobox.com/abc123/def456 .
When you open it thru Sweepstakes List, it opens to some Facebook page, asking you to login.
There is solution to bypass Facebook, going directly to woodbox.com : add "?tab=1" to your URL:
http://woobox.com/abc123/def456?tab=1

Not sure if it works for every woodbox.com link, but works for many...

P.S. After some research I've found that "?embed=1" works better - it does not remove vertical scrollbar:

General Sweepstakes List Forum / Re: SL and Microsoft Edge
« Last post by Webmaster on December 26, 2016, 06:47:04 pm »
Sorry for the delay in response.

Edge browser is different from other browsers like Chrome or Firefox - it is more like a Windows service, than actual application. So, adding Edge as option to list of browsers would require large amount of programming. Since Edge does not support RoboForm, antivirus and other useful tools, I'd assume not too many users would want to use Edge with SL. So, creating a new version of SL to add Edge into browsers list would be very low priority.

I've found some kind of workaround - how to use Edge instead of one of legacy browsers, like Flock. If you OK with extensive registry editing and command file creation, I can provide step-by-step instructions.

Note: running Edge from Sweepstakes List neither warranted, nor supported.

General Sweepstakes List Forum / SL and Microsoft Edge
« Last post by sdadolf on December 18, 2016, 06:50:47 am »
Microsoft keeps trying to get us (me) to abandon IE and use Edge. 

I make really good use of being able to select multiple browsers since each brosaer has its own cookies.  I can enter different users with a different browser and not have continually login in to Twitter, Facebook, etc. for each user.

Any chance we can get an update to SL that will enable users to select Edge as a browser choice?

Thanks, Steve

General Sweepstakes List Forum / SweepstakesList and Dropbox - Super Improvement
« Last post by sdadolf on March 11, 2016, 08:41:26 am »
I won a new computer, and finally bit the bullet and took the opportunity to try SL with Dropbox. 

I created a folder in Dropbox, and moved the SL program and database file into it.  What a super setup.  I can work on my dailies upstairs in my home office, and the come downstairs in the evening to watch the news, open my laptop and continue working my dailies without having to move the database file back and forth between computers.

And, when I travel (on trip wins :) ) I no longer have to move files back and forth between my desktop and traveling laptop.  The SL program and database files are always available wherever I am.

Terrific productivity improvement for my style of entering.
