It doesn't even make sense the shit they are blocking. I can't use Mozilla either with my Pandora Adblock. I'll use Google Chrome but allow us to download Adblock at least.

What are they blocking??

^ same question @P5! I really want a better sticky note/notepad app through Chrome since my windows sticky notes keeps crashing. Anyone know if this is a PwC help desk question? Or who to go to for more guidance?

@P6 Help desk is useless; they simply won't let you. Need an underground solution like Comodo Dragon (but that recently got locked down).

Oops, that's @S1
