Trying to resolve an issue I’ve been having with the Adobe Flash plugin for Firefox. I found some useful tips at MozillaZine.org which at one point directed me towards the about:config page in Firefox.
Accessing the about:config page then brought up this delightful warning message.
There aren’t enough dragons in the software industry! Or humorous warning messages for that matter…
Humour aside, this is a great example of an easy to understand warning message. No redundant ‘Cancel’ button. No verbose jargon that would just get ignored. A Submit button that is related to the action, and thus might be read rather than immediately clicked on in a Pavlovian response.
