    I looks to be the same as the one I use at home...however it should I guess as it is the beta at home...they just worked the bugs out.

    I really wish they would upgrade their themes...most of them really suck compared to opera.

    I also think opera does a better job on their tab situation.

    In opera if you hit your opera icon and load a page...then hit the opera Icon again (on your tool bar or desktop)...it will automatically add the tab to the existing window.

    No matter how I set up mozilla it will always open a new window.
    Sure I can open another tab by going into the file menu...but I am used to doing it the other way.....and I also think if you click on a link that would open in another tab in opera...it will not work right in mozilla...it will either open another window or just not open it.

    That does that to me while surfing here.

    If I get a pm here it will open in another tab after asking...if I am in mozilla it will ask but it never opens another tab or window. lol.

    I just like opera a tad better...better themes, better tabbing and just used to it more.

    One other thing about mozilla I hate....when you browser back it always takes you to the top of the page instead of where you just were (if you had scrolled to the bottom or middle)...very annoying.

    BP as far as the tabbed browsing check out and extension called tabbrowers extesions. It allows you to custimize your tabbing experiance.

    And I agree about the taking you to the top of the page thing, Ver. 1.0 does not seem to have the problem as bad though so it appears they are working on it. :D

    I have had some of the same issues with Firefox, another being it won't use the scroll function in Mouseware.

    I'm glad you brought Opera up. I used to use it a lot, but kind of got away from it. Nice that they let you download Java along with it now.

    ahh...something we can agree on.......If you still use IE you're either an idiot or a hermit.......I like mozilla over firefox though......

    I started using Firefox about a month back and I have problem with it. Maybe one of you could please help me.

    When I'm on a website or a forum that has a WMV, RM, MPEG file I can just click it with IE and it will pop up and start viewing and Downloading at the sametime. When you click on one of those types of file with Firefox it wants to Download it first before you can watch it. Is there any way to change this? I haven't been able to find a place to change it.

    Thanks

    Click on Tools

    Extensions

    Get more extensions.

    It loads to a page with different extensions that you may find useful.

    1) Click on tools

    2) Options

    3) Downloads

    4) Here you'll see a list of extensions and how Firefox is to treat them, myself what I do is highlight them all then remove. When you're done there you'll select Plug-Ins and you'll see a box appear with checkmarks on the right, uncheck all of them, then exit out.

    When you click on an extension you'll now be given a box that'll tell you what would you like to do with this, open with/save, etc.

    Yeah, and so do all the hackers out there that are using IE to collect all your personal information and credit card info so they can buy Christmas w/ your card and not theirs. And lets not forget all those Neanderthals that have nothing better to do on their college break other than to find holes in Windows or IE and introduce a trojan virus or worm into your system...

    I have always loved the speed of Firefox... but apparently they haven't fixed that annoying little problem of going back to the top of the page on reloads...

    How hard can it be to fix this? :(

    That is about the only annoyance that gets on my nerves that I was surprised didn't get addressed.

    At least this one isn't crashing on me all the time. Hasn't crashed once.

    ...someone has to give me the idiot's guide to Firefox. If you can help me from the point of view of IE it would make it more palatable. I have alot of peers asking me to convert ot Firefox, but does it work in the same manner as IE. With all the graphical interface standards of Microsoft, I'm hesistant to give it up.

    It is very similar to IE in most aspects only without the headaches. Worth the switch in my opinion. All of your IE Favorites, settings and other information are imported when you download Firefox.
