    I dont use Mozilla, I personally use Opera. I have tried to use firefox but it seems to ruslower than my Opera does. I have trid your about:config for the pipeline tweak but it didnt seem to help. I doubt it is my machine but it seems that something may be up since everyone here raves about it.

    the problem is that micro**** put it in with the windows packages. Sure they helped the idiots have a browser but they also made it so people can easily hack computers since IE is the main browser (not many people know that IE has security holes! LMAO)
    5 ways that FireFox pwns IE :P
    1. It isn't part of a system installation package.
    2. You can install and uninstall it all you want (IE has some serious grudges if you try to take it out ¬_¬)
    3. FireFox has multi-tabbing and the ability to add extensions which make this more secure and more customizable than IE
    4. Firefox has is open source meaning that people can look for exploits and tell the makers other than IE which keeps the source to itself meaning that hackers would hold a bit of a grudge and exploit the **** out of it :P
    5. FireFox always you to go RIGHT into it's settings (about:config) and edit them to make ti more faster and better :D

    I like the extensions on Firefox. The Foxy Tunes are great. No need to have an extra window open when listening to music.

    khao Ie is the one that loads the pages wrong...
    FireFox is better than IE by lightyears...
    At least on FireFox they allow you to edit a lot of settings (and allow things like pipelining and tons of other stuff) :P
