Turn Off Filename Extension Warning

In Leopard, Apple fixed an annoying aspect of working with the Finder in Tiger. Previously, if you changed a file's extension, the Finder prompted for confirmation. But since no one has ever accidentally changed a filename extension, Apple thankfully added an option to turn that warning off in the Leopard Finder's preferences. Choose Finder > Preferences, and in the Advanced screen, deselect Show Warning Before Changing an Extension.

5.1.10 freezes constantly, just like the previous version. imac 9.1, osx 10.6.8. No extensions to speak of. Javascript enabled, as this version of safari was supposed to fix that. May have to finally give up on Safari all together!
