Question about Computers & Internet

Mozilla Firefox trumps Internet Explorer

On one of my machines, I can't get IE to do anything. If I type in a URL, when I hit enter, the action starts up Firefox which starts searching for that URL ... or, if Firefox is already open, the focus is switched toFirefox which starts searching for that URL.

As much as I like Firefox, I need IE on a couple of sites where Firefox won't read properly.

Thank you

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!

A blank screen when I open mozzillafirefox


Go into the address bar and type the URL for the site you would like to call your "Home Page". For example, in the address bar type the following:

http://www.yahoo.com

Next, press ENTER and see if it goes to that page. If so, then on the Firefox menu bar, click Tools, General, Use Current Page(s). This should set your home page.

To test it out, now close Firefox, wait about 5 seconds, and start Firefox again. It should land on Yahoo! (assuming that is what you selected for your home page).

If you're not getting any results at all, i.e., you can't access the Internet at all using Firefox, then see if you can access the Internet using Microsoft's Internet Explorer. If that works, then I would suggest completely uninstalling Firefox via Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel. Then, go to the following URL:

http://www.firefox.com

Download the latest, greatest version of Firefox. Install it, start it up for the first time, and allow it to become your default browser. From there onwards, you should do fine. Personally, I love Firefox and will not use anything else.

Please let me know if this works for you!

Thanks ~Jim :-)

You need to enter the URL (internet address) for your Comcast email into your firefox browser. Open your email in internet explorer and take note of what address is listed at the top of the window. Use this in your Firefox browser.

Error message when closing IE


Try Mozilla Firefox and see if the same thing happens. lol.. IE is a white elephant in general. You might need to go to add/remove programs and uninstall IE from the windows components section and reinstall it possibly, personally though I would not re-install IE after removing it though, lol. As urban dictionary defines Internet Explorer - a perfect program for downloading Mozilla Firefox, lol. Good Luck!

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?...


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.
