:lol: Yep, FF is too much tweaking for me.  :wink: And it still slowed my speeds down.

You are just one of them old farts that don't like the new fangle things. :haha:

Firefox 3.0 is slower than IE7. [ You have to remember I am on Crapcast and it sucks when it come to holding a constant speed. ]

Speed is a lot closer on my XP computer with Cablenut, but Firefox is still slower.
