Web Loading Expectations

Looking for the graphic of a remote control, related to the previous entry on this journal, I decided to visit some specialized websites -dedicated to remotes- where I could search using the model of the corresponding TV. While listening to streaming radio, the first site with a suggestive name "Universal Remote Control, Inc." at, loaded an impressive flash presentation on a clean interface with a few and clear menu items, with a background music that repeats forever :o{ ...there is no way to stop the music, so I had to stop my Windows Media Player, only to be surprised again, because that welcome page does not have a 'search' menu option. Thanks to broadband, I can recover quickly, but that episode made me remember of a pending issue with one web page I could improve.

After searching and searching for several minutes, I gave up and decided to take a picture of my own remote, then noticed the red circle with a white arrow pointing up on the top-rigt corner of my browser; clicking the red circle, started the process of updating the Mozilla Firefox browser, which didn't work with the radio on; stopped my classical listening pleasure again, and the browser was upgraded to its 1.0.3 version. The browser had to be closed to proceed, but when I opened it up again, the red circle was still there; recalling a previous experience, clicked the red circle again, to find no updates this time; the circle vanished after verifying that there were no updates available, and without the need to reload the browser. Curious to see why the Firefox browser on the other computer I have at work didn't show the red update circle, found its version to be 0.9.1 + (time for its update too).
