But then, you could do another plate or three while IE does the same task!
… except, PDFs, I hate the way FF can’t handle PDF, I wish there was some way of telling it to just download the blasted things, rather than just crash!
I’ve found FF fast as Tim wrote; and as Tim also makes mention, if I see a link to PDFs I load up IE.
I don’t know what your probelms are, apart from the initail load time i find firefox to be efficient and fast! AS for the PDF issue make sure you have the latest version of both FF and AAR and your problems will disapear!
I don’t know what my problems are either. All I can say is that it is not uncommon for Firefox to go into a ‘not responding’ state where absolutely nothing will happen for 3-4 minutes, then it will come back. And I have the latest version, 1.0.4. I find IE much less problematic these days, but a) Tabbed browsing is just about worth the hassle and b) All my favourites are in Firefox now and when I try to trnsfer them between the two things tend to not go smoothly.
I’ve got over the pdf issue – I just download them directly using ‘save as’ and all is well.
I have no idea on the technical stuff, but am wondering; do you water your weeds? because that might not help if as the definition of ‘weed’ states it is unwanted, unless you plan to drown it…
i tried FF and found it just doesn’t like some websites… went back to IE which is not wonderful… have u ever tried opera?
Rach – you’re right of course. Though using a half can has got to be better than a full one. Xi – I haven’t tried it. (I was going to make a joke along the lines of “I hope to do so at some point, along with ballet”, but thought better of it.)
I’ve tried opera, it’s ok but i wouldn’t switch, i agree there are a few sites that still need IE but they are very few i find, it would take a lot for me to give up firefox, i wonder are we using differnt opp Systems that might make a diffrence, i’m on XP sp2 and like i say everything kept up to date and it’s fine.
Think of all the cartoons you can draw while waiting, instead of doing all those useful things.

Firefox on the Mac is the dog’s whotsits. No probs with pdf’s, and I cn’t say I’ve noticed it being slow. I’m just saying…
Nice cartoon, though!
Firefox on Linux (Ubuntu) is great too – go on abandon m$ alltogether it feels great.
I don’t know if any comments here will actually reach the ones who wrote before me, but I’ll go ahead nevertheless in the hope that someone who reaches this page like I did, will find this useful.
The strength is in the extensions. Firefox can be as useful as you want it to be, and even more. Get the extensions that would make your life simpler (well, atleast your computing life). Also, there is a pdf extension that gives you the choice of downloading or viewing (as pdf and html) the document. Of course, the extensions wrap around the browser, and most will work independent of the platform you’re on.
