firefox

anyone notice a slowdown after the last update?

how is Chrome working for everyone? I heard google puts spyware in most of their stuff.

any other suggestions?

I have been using fire fox for a few years and like it better than IE. I have never tried anything else accept netscape a long time ago. Never liked that much.

I switched to Safari after the last Fire Fox update. The slow down and lock ups were getting crazy....

been using firefox for past 7 years. Nothing better. Use adblock plus extention, it will make it run alot quicker.

If you go into your javascript settings, you can make the attacks a lot easier to get out of. You don't really want javascript moving your windows, or disabling anything.



This keeps the window from bouncing around the screen.

Then you can just go to your prefs and disable javascript, close the rickroll window, then re-enable it.

I tried no-script but wasn't a fan, it was too annoying.
