Haven't there already been a thread about Mozilla Firefox? Still.. I use IE, cause I can't get flash working when I use Firefox. I've tried just about everything, also visited their own help forum.. I guess it has something to do with me using Windows ME :(

Flightfreak: You're just slack with your website designs as they don't always fit both Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox :P

For some reason IE still goes faster than Firefox, but I use Firefox 100% of the time except for school. If you can get education institutes to use Firefox you'll see a rapid boom in popularity. You could ask most of the classmates I have and they wouldn't have a clue what it is. We still use pathetic IE, but I plan to change that when I get my laptop for next year :)

Yes Window Millennium sucks. But my computer is fucking slow, so I have to use a fast OS, and ME is fast. XP is much better, but very slow on my computer.. Therefor I use ME.

The Netscape Navitgator was after a hard struggle beaten by IE. This is some years ago, I don't remember how it is.. I tryed it on my school 5 years ago...

They both download porn at the same speeds, so I just use Internet Explorer. :/

Spread the word - spread firefox

We may not agree about the Earth's environment...but we agree about the web's environment. Firefox uber alles!
The only thing I have noticed is that sometimes when I click on one of my bookmarks, it says it can't find it. And then it does find it. But, it beats having my browser hijacked constantly when using IE.

FF 4 sure!
but i'm afraid it will get too popular, so more and more viruses will match to the FF :mad:

Haha, if they do get bigger than Internet Explorer, chances are Microsoft will try to buy it.

uhm
that are just numbers, i think :read:
I was quite surprised when i heard, that in USA and Germany, the Firefox Comunity managed it to get enough money with doles to commission an ad in newspapers nationwide :)
so - great community that grows day per day

I use Firefox. I think it may change when Microsoft comply with this EU order to sell stripped Windows without any other MS software bundled.

JackYang

Haha who knows, it's always possible Microsoft might try to partner up with FireFox and include FireFox as default browser over IE in their operating systems.

Or they just take all of Firefox's features and chuck it on their own. Or they might not care much since they don't exactly earn money from the Internet Explorer arm of their empire compared to other parts.

Well, Internet Explorer's fast but it accepts too much junk such as massive spywares that browsers like NEtscape blocks so who knows. Alot of people complains about bad security in windows and one of the weakest end that's causing it is Internet explorer.

Oh, sorry, I don't really know much about it. I thought it was supposed to be all MS software stripped out of it plus revealing some code to competitors. I'm probably wrong, so I apologise.

Sweet! I decided to get Firefox earlier today and I got to say it's alot better than Internet Explorer. The browser just blocks a lot of spywares and threats from your system. For Internet Explorer, no matter what pop-up blocker I install, I always have to dump the spywares out with Ad-Ware PRO SE. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, Netscape 7.2's also pretty decent.

I don't know whether Melvin really is a banned user. I'm sorry for using his quote for my first post if he is. But I looked around to find something which matched up with something I wanted to ask, and here it is. And in so doing perhaps I can give you something in return.

1) I use Mozilla Firefox. (Mozilla is another name for the people who made Netscape. They sold Netscape to some other company, [aol/Time-Warner, I believe] but maintained control of the "Open Source" part, and now mostly support Firefox.)

2) Your website is set up in such a manner that it is broken when you access it in Mozilla Firefox. (For some reason you use an editor for posting this note which Mozilla Firefox can't normally use.) That same Microcruft editor breaks the ability to send you a "Private Message". I rather suspect that you have an older version of JAVA which is non-compliant with Sun Microsystems Java. Microcruft tried to steal the Java Standards awhile back so their version of Java would intentionally break Netscape (and, concomitantly, Mozilla.) Sorry about that, being new here I hadn't tried all the combinations possible. I just changed away from the WYSIWYG editor to the "basic" one and it works fine in a standard Firefox window.

3) However, Mozilla Firefox is so much better than IE, that I merely install a plugin which opens an Internet Explorer Window, and all of your broken parts work. If you care, I have so many really sweet "extensions" that Microcruft Internet Explorer can't even begin to anticipate developing in the next five years.

4) "Down them All" which uses download manager to download all the links to files of a certain type with one "click".
They both download porn at the same speeds, so I just use Internet Explorer. :/ I downloaded all 259 images on the magazine Gallery with one "click", in the background, unattended... Do that with Microjunk!

5) Sage. An RSS reader

6) several different anti phishing tools which tell me the actual name of the actual website I am visiting.

7) a plugin (extension) which turns off JAVA executables on a per executable basis. i.e. when I go to a new site, I have to turn on JAVA for that site, and I can leave it turned off for clicknet, and other advertisers and spysites. I see the stuff I want to see, and absolutely no ads on the side of the page or the top of the page, or etc.

8) And where do you think all that pop-up ad blocking stuff came from? Did Microcruft (who makes most of their money by selling methods of creating and expediting delivery of advertisements...) Did Microsoft create methods of blocking pop-up ads? Not on your life. In fact, there is a Beta-Test going on right now of software that is supposed to block spy-ware, I installed it and ran it for about four months... It never blocked one. The particular spy-ware that I am subject to is all created by Microsoft customers. I use ad-aware.

And that's all I'm going to say for this "first message".

Hasn't there already been a thread about Mozilla Firefox? Still.. I use IE, because I can't get flash working when I use Firefox. <snip> I guess it has something to do with me using Windows ME :(

Flash works fine on my machine. Of course I am running Windows XP-Pro, and the newest version of Mozilla Firefox.
1) There is a special version of Flash that you must load for Firefox.
2) There is an extension which stops Flash from running and you have to "mouse over" the Flash graphic and "click it" to permit that obnoxious Flash ad to run... I, of course have that extension installed.
3) There are several other extensions which deal with "Flash" which I've tried, but I prefer the one I have now.
4) ME contains most of the NT-4.0 code, so that shouldn't be the problem.

The Netscape Navigator was after a hard struggle beaten by IE. This is some years ago, I don't remember how it is..

This was actually the JAVA wars I spoke about. Microconglomerate tried to add some new JAVA commands to the language which Netscape (being "Open Source" and Sun Microsystems JAVA Standard language compliant) couldn't process. Sun took Microsoft to court and "made them 'stop that'." A Standard should be "Standard". (James Gosling, who invented NeWS and JAVA for Sun Microsystems [and put JAVA into the "public domain"] is a member of my Balloon Crew, but that's another story for another time.)

I use Mozilla Firefox. It's easier and more dependable than IE. Also, I can pull up tabs of web pages, instead of opening up new windows each time with IE - makes life easier. Besides, isn't that what technology's supposed to do? (Of course, I own a PC, and not a Mac, so I might be wrong here, heh.)

If it wasn't for the top right search engine, with added IMDB, Dictionary.com and Wikipedia, I wouldn't use Firefox. I don't go to enough suspicious websites to really justify having a process hogging security system in place.
