It's unheard of someone to switch to FF and then back to IE... well until now
They're loads of reason to use FF over IE... browser add-ons, security, application efficiency with your computer's resources, more likely to render a website as it's meant to display.... etc. etc.
If you don't like FF, might be worth giving Google's Chrome a look and see if you prefer that.
Sorry for the severe shock, Mark, but I've always done things that aren't conventional, and apparently a lot of folk can't quite figure out where I'm coming from, but that's the way I am.
Yes, I'd heard FF was better security-wise, etc, but, after installing it, I felt IE was sufficient for my modest use, as I use my computer mainly for surfing the web, posting on MW, emails and playing online Scrabble. I've been using Google Chrome for ages now and like it.
I use all three at different times and for different reasons .... ^^
OMG, woman - you're living dangerously!
I was told by my computer repair man that it was NOT a good idea to keep switching between FF and IE, which I'd been doing initially when I installed F/F. Seems using both can slow your computer down, but Mark can verify that.
Goodness, what a difference now the main reply box is working properly. Thanks again, Mark.
