They started developing it based on Mozilla 1.0, so you cannot consider it a 'beta' anymore.

Thanks for the tip I am using firefox for two days now and i like it.

I love it because it's called Firefox. And I like how you can open tabs instead of new windows .

I still can't figure out the problem - 'direct connection to the internet' is the option that is marked I'll try to go to their site and see if maybe this is in their FAQ.

New question - I was in IE today, and the cat walked across the keyboard and screwed up the screen. The top of the screen shows the buttons to click for back, forward, stop, reload, home etc, but does not list the options for file, edit, view, favorites, tools, and help, and it does not have the address bar for me to punch in whatever site I need to go to. The bottom toolbar will pop up if I set the arrow over it, but otherwise it disappears.

I'm guessing the control key with some letter will fix it back to the way it was, but I'm scared to just go through the alphabet, does anyone know?

They now have a 0.9.1 Firefox version so uninstalled the old one and downloaded the new one, it is working ok. Still need to figure out the IE problem because that is on my work computer...

BLS, it sounds like your browser window is probably in full screen. Hit F11 and that should return the window size to normal.

Yes, Firefox is easy to uninstall. It doesn't mess with your system (registry, etc.). I don't know if they have an actual uninstall option yet. If they don't, just delete the Firefox folder where you installed it.

When you start up Firefox for the first time it asks if you want it to be your default browser. I think you can also set it in the Options menu.

Firefox system requirements:

This is a scary thing and I want to block it. But I don't want a firewall! What should I do?

Repeating my reply from above :

http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/releases/

This will get you rid of (most) security flaws, improve your browsing experience and block those annoying pop-ups (of course you can select the sites you do want to give you pop-ups).

Try it!



Marty

edit: This release is also called One Tree Hill, so you have the added advantage of using an inspired-by-U2 browser.

Thanks

I don't like pop ups but I do like being able to click on links and open additional windows, which pop up blockers stop.
