  • Things changed here with Firefox

    Well, I was having so many problems with my e-mail and browser my isp along with several people around her suggested Firefox. I downloaded it and now the face of this forum changed as well.

    The background was black , now it comes up grey and when I click on the box to the left giving us options for areas to go to , it flickers and takes forever? Anyone have any idea what happened? I was using IE before this.

      Hi Neb,

      Yes the grey bg seems to be a symptom of browsing here with Firefox, though only on the "Welcome" screen for me (the forum bgs are black).
      However, I don't have any problems with delay in accessing forums.

      You could always fit the IE view plug-in for Firefox. This allows you to open sites with IE simply by right clicking, it can also be set to open a trusted site (like RP) with IE every time you visit. That way you have the security of Firefox for other sites, and the convenience of IE for here.

          Firefox 2 Released
          by byRo
          Well, seems that it's official now. Firefox 2.0 is ready for download.

          I installed mine yesterday and up to now the only big difference that I have noticed is that I keep trying to close tabs with the button at the right instead of the little red "X" on the tab.

          Connection Problems
          by Gary Richardson
          Over the last week or so, I've had problems with my connection here. I connect OK, and everything functions fine, then sometimes if I've been on a while, the site seems to lock up and stop responding to me. If I break connection, it will not allow me to re establish for about 10 mins. Then when I...
