MSIE and Firefox won't open ... how do I download updated versions, or another browser, without a browser to work with?

I recently had a Firefox problem. It disappeared! Fortunately the very old version of IE I have still worked but every time I downloaded Firefox it disappeared again within a few minutes.

I tried Opera and Safari downloads but although they seemed to download ok they remained stubbornly frozen.
I tried one of those operating systems never heard of before with similar results - slightly more successful in that it worked albeit at a snail's pace.

Over the next few hours I downloaded and used every clean-up programme suggested on the Firefox website, used spybot and scanned with Zonealarm to no effect whatsoever.

I was forced to continue with the old IE intending to format the drive and reload everything but never getting around to it. A couple of weeks later out of interest I downloaded Firefox again with great success.
I have been convinced for a few years XP tends to heal itself over time and many starts and restarts...

Clearly my computer was attacked by something unpleasant and probably yours was too. Format the drive and reload everything is the best plan.

To get over your immediate problem try downloading a few browsers on a friend's computer and burning them to disc or memory stick and load onto your computer in the old-fashioned way.

Good luck!

My profile picture will not show what do i do help

See if this helps. I couldn't get Firefox or Chrome to bring up my FB images, same as pic above.
in case problem is not dissolve that means if you are using router you reboot or check the setting
once try connect LAN wire and try

So I opened up IE and logged onto FB and it worked perfect. ( IE is NOT my regular browser).All photos, headers the works all showing up. I then opened Chrome up and cleared my cache for the past week, incase some sort of bug was there. I reset my Firefox brower, by getting rid of add ons. To do this go to Firefox help, troubleshooting, click reset Firefox button on top right hand side. Then tried FB in Chrome and Firefox and they are both loading FB perfect too, now.

Don't know if it was an FB bug, or if loading FB in IE first solved the problem. Try running the IE browser and signing into FB, maybe that will fix the problem. Then log off and try logging into FB again with your other browser. If you still see a problem, then the other steps I did re Chrome and Firefox may help you. Good luck!

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..

When i try to login on facebook i get this massage: "You are using an incompatible web browser." I use IE v. 7.0.5730. 13IC! How to get ride of it?

Facebook supports IE 7, and firefox so it is not internet explorer 7
it is the server at facebook.

Open internet options and delete all your browser history and temp files,delete everything, this is on the main page under browsing history.

My thinkpad has 3GB RAM, but sometimes when i have 10-15 IE browser windows open, i cannot open more. It complains "short of storage", Any idea?

Get Firefox :)

Ok, seriously, your laptop should be able to handle all those windows with 3GB of RAM. Try to get it up to that many again so you can see the error, and when that happens, open Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc). Then click the "processes" tab and click on 'Memory.' Click on it so that it's sorted with the largest numbers at the top. You should be able to see what program is taking up all your memory. I'm not sure if IE would use that much (I use Firefox... 1 window is all I need!) You may have spyware or some unwanted program leeching all of your resources and in that case I would recommend you get some antivirus or antispyware software.
