Use it.. It will be the best browser you ever use..

Just by switching to Firefox, it will cut down the amount of spyware/adaware infections by 90%

tabbed browsing instead of new windows, better bookmarking, and tons more extentions you can use.

I personally like how it remembers my information, and automatically logs me into places. Just a minute ago I was trying to post here, and it asked me to log in like 3 times, then I noticed I was in IW

Just do this for us Firefox users..

Many people try it then get rid of it.. I tell people to try it for a week or two. Learn a few operations and give it an honest go..

You may find you like it..

Heres a cool tip.

Have you evern been reading an article seen a link in the article then clicked on it? the page goes to the link. So then you dont click the link. But then you forget about the link..

NOW> when reading the article, When you see a link, press the Control key then click on the link with the mouse.. Bang.. your still on the page and the browser poped up a new tab.

Or just go to Tools>Options>Advanced

Hey, follow this, and it will run like a deer :

1. Type "about:config" into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:

network.http.pipelining
network.http.proxy.pipelining
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading.

2. Alter the entries as follows:

Set "network.http.pipelining" to "true"

Set "network.http.proxy.pipelining" to "true"

Set "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once.

3. Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it "nglayout.initialpaint.delay" and set its value to "0". This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it recieves.

If you're using a broadband connection you'll load pages 2-3 times faster now.


Welcome

How do you set it up through advanced to where the holding of the CTRL key isnt required?
