So, I finally got Firefox, and it's pretty cool.... put I don't see what the difference is between Firefox and IE except from tabbing and a couple other little things that don't make much difference. Do I just need to customize it more?

I haven't really fooled around with the settings or anything very much. Does it get better?

Firefox is much faster, it has more pop-up protection, it's open-source, and the extensions and customizations you can add to it are incredible. Plainly said, Firefox > IE.

more importantly imo, firefox blocks the right pop-ups, you try and dl something from sourceforge and IE blocks the download window, its just silly, and firefox gets you less spyware and less viruses and just works. IE doesnt just work.

Try setting firefox to be your default browser.

You can customize FireFox. Can you customize IE?

FireFox has themes, adblocker, and all kinds of applications. What does IE have? Viruses maybe?

Ah, the virus protection is what makes it better!

And I don't use IE I just know what it's like cuz of friends', school, and library computers. I'm on AOHell (parents are idiots) and right now I've just got AOL minimized and using Firefox to browse with.

Now I think about it, it is a little faster. Not enough to make me go "Wow! that's so much faster than it was!" but a little... and it seems to be faster than when I first pulled it up... does that make sense? like did it need time to... get used to it or something?

When I had that problem it was due to my firewall blocking it, so make sure that's not the case.

^I think it automatically saves on your desktop. If not then just try to click "open" in the downloads window and see where it went.

By the way, to the person having the problem with firefox with the "Cannot Find Server" error, check to see that you're not working offline. Click File and make sure Work Offline is unchecked.

I'd also recommend stumble. Just for when you're bored
