Can Microsoft Dynamics CRM play nicely with OS X 10.7?

I'm running OS X 10.7.2 and I need to access a Microsoft Dynamics CRM system. It won't work in FF, Safari or Chrome; it only wants IE. Of course, no versions of IE will work post-Lion (no more Rosetta). Is there any OS X native solution to this? [more inside]

PDFs on Firefox for Mac

PDFs on Firefox for Mac: No matter what hacks I try, it seems that I cannot get the PDF Plugin for Firefox on Mac OS X to work with either Firefox 9 or Firefox 10 beta. I feel like I must be doing something wrong because evidently other folks have gotten it to work. Would be grateful if anyone could walk me through the best way to get this extension working again.

Brand new MBP slowing to a crawl

My sister has used a brand new 13" MacBookPro (w/ Lion) for several weeks, replacing her 4-year-old 15" MBP (upgraded to Snow Leopard). She's finding that, over the course of a day, the machine seems to dramatically slow - to the point where it seems much slower than her old machine. [more inside]

OS X Folder Action to Trigger Transmit When File's Modification Time Changes?

In OS X, I used Automator to create a Folder Action to synch, with Transmit, a local folder and a remote folder. It's activated when I drop a file in the local folder. I want it to be activated when I edit and save a file that is already in the local folder. That is, I want the Folder Action to watch for changes in the modification date/time of files and trigger the synch when a file's modification date or time changes. Doable?

Looking for a community/forum where I can learn more about networking, code, security, and OS-independent CS topics

I'm looking for a forum where I can ask questions about networking, security, coding, operating systems, web design, etc. There are many of these out there, but I'd like to find a single community which covers all these topics more or less equally (so it isn't a Linux forum with a small section on BSD, or a coding forum with a small section on networking). I'd like it to be the sort of forum where users stay around for several years as they learn and contribute at different levels, with high literacy and education-to-spam levels. Could I have your recommendations please?
