yahoo messenger not working

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..

Mozilla Firefox trumps Internet Explorer

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.

Hope this helps!

Firefox or IE I've been using IE for ever, lately I've been hearing a lot about Firefox, and thought I might try it, what are the main advantages of Firefox, over IE? What do you prefer Firefox or IE? Thanks.

The user interface on the two browser is very similar.

Firefox is considered 'more powerful' because is more customisable, and you can download many extensions, that are plugins with many functions.

Firefox suffer less from virus problem, as there are more viruses designed to attack IE, however majority of viruses do not make any difference between IE, Firefox, Opera etc.

Internet explorer is more unstable and crashes more easily.

Sometimes new plugins (extension) can make Firefox slower.

Sometimes new download updates can make IE slower.

The two browsers are both good, and both work fine on most situation. I personally use Firefox, as it gives me less troubles with Windows.

My suggestion is : download and install Firefox, if you do not like it, then switch back to IE.

You can use both browsers at the same time.
