Fierr adds a more helpful "server not found" page to Firefox

Fierr is a Firefox add-on (compatible up to 4.0b8pre) that replaces the default "Unable to connect" page with a more beautiful, functional page. As Ghacks reports, Fierr adds several buttons to the default page: Back takes you to the previous page (assuming there is one). Reload starts a periodic reloading of the page; it's like "redial" for the page – it keeps trying to load it again...

Showstopper chkdsk bug set to derail Windows 7 launch? Hardly.

Earlier today, reports were flying all around the blogosphere about a critical, holy-crap-its-the-apocalypse bug that had been uncovered in the Windows 7 RTM.
