Can anyone tell me what is so great about FF?  :confused1:

for me firefox and mozilla suite is more faster, i.e. never liked it. i just got used to firefox. its been almost 2 years since i started using firefox. and the last time i used i.e. was over 8 months.

plus the theme i got for firefox and thunderbird matches microsoft office 03 theme

well, here's the basics...

  • Faster
  • Safer
  • Easier
  • NON-M$
  • Better :haha:

Faster...It was not faster for me.

Safer...just because hackers mostly concentrate on IE.

Non-M$...I agree.

Easier...I don't have any trouble using IE...do you? (As a Computer Information System Major, It seems simple to me).

Better...Not in my opinion...just different.

faster: it was way faster for me, especially at rendering pages (and it can be tweaked to be even faster)

safer: it supports double the encryption that IE does

easier: I constantly have some problem or another with IE... and I can't really "reinstall" it to fix the problems :roll:

Let's just be thankful that we have variety! That way we can ALL be happy with are "pet" programs.

I would be happy if I had more variety... I have to log on as the administrator acount to update windows... and more tiny problems that get annoying... c'est la vie :(

At least FF lets me be a bit more happy :)

php,

Does your "regular" Windows account not have administrator privileges? If not, you can make it so.

Of course it has administrator privileges... there's just a setting somewhere in my account that isn't letting me use Windows Update properly... and its not just my account either... I have yet to get a XP computer to connect to the Windows Update site properly on my connection without using the Administrator account.

I've had both Windows XP home and Pro (I've installed Pro over 20 times for friends)...never had that problem. Maybe you should disable your administrator account and then try to connect to Windows Update. If it doesn't work you can always re-enable the administrator account.

It has worked on a fresh install, but after a few months it doesn't work :confused1:

as I said before... I have yet to get XP to update without using the administrator account... the only exception has been that a fresh install worked once... but all the other fresh installs I've used don't...

Also... did you ever try to update using DirecWay?  I believe that is my problem...

Umm, Ca3le I just noticed something. Look at the message I quoted, and then the pic.

haha, yeah.. originally I was going to do that, but found out that SMF's permissions don't allow it (at least I couldn't figure out how to make it happen so I figured the permissions couldn't be set) -- anyway, I will fix that wording there.. haha

:D Hey Boss

                  the only problem that I have noticed is with some of the mirror sites. my down's are a little off from our home server in other words they are not consistant. maybe it is supposed to be that way because of traffic or distance any way I would not be testing here if they were not accurate and consistant :D :D
