Internet Explorer As Fast As Firefox.........
i think thtz y peoople
say ie is slower bt i realized that i had done this for max
speed.........so sharing it with u all.......... Open registry
editor by going to Start then Run and entering regedit. Once in
registry, navigateto key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\microsoft\Windows\ Current Version \InternetSettings. Right click on the right windows > New > DWORD. Type MaxConnectionsPerServer > You can set value (the more higher the no, the more good speed eg:99). Create another DWORD >type MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server. Then put a high value as mentioned above. Restart I.E and you are done.
Reinstalling both Yahoo messenger and Firefox, this will solve the problem... There might be conflict with the applications so you need to clean install, it'll not fail. About the internet explorer, it'll be ok, but when you compared the speed with the firefox, IE is much slower. good luck..
You should try making IE your standard browser, I think it's in extras or internet options menu. When you've done that, it should open all sites in IE. Or you can try downloading extra plug-ins for firefox that will display the site properly.
