At least that proves all is good with the actual connection to the ISP. Have you got two icons on the desktop? Is your 'orange shortcut' the mozilla shortcut or is it for another browser..? Like IE? If the orange shortcut is for another browser or whatever.. highlight it with a left mouse click & right mouse select it & go to 'properties'. It should show (under shortcut) something like this:
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE"
This points to the actual executable that really runs the program. You could go down the directory structure & attempt to start the program directly from that executable. If it "points" to the wrong executable, then you need to modify the shortcut. You need to compare the two internet browser shortcuts & try to discover whats wrong. Both shortcuts should point to their respective exe files, to start the actual program.

I realise this is probably sounding complicated, so if you are not sure, then post any other questions here.. But as above, you do have access to the internet, so this is not a serious problem to solve. Let me know how you get on.. Rgds,

Mozilla Firefox safer and faster than Internet Explorer?


Internet is a very useful and adaptable program used for viewing the web, and over the years companies have come up with many improvements. But I find that there is no update available for Internet Explorer that can come anywhere close as Mozzila Firefox is.

Mozilla offers many great experiences and benefits. There are many reasons why you should use Mozilla, one being their constant support and dedication. This program is absolutely free, and will not harm your computer.

Mozilla's work includes:
  • Making software that allows everyone to see the Internet.
  • Empowering people to do new and unexpected things on the web.
  • Fostering a healthy ecosystem for open source and free culture communities.
  • Creating learning oppurtunities for people around the world.
  • Protecting individual's security and privacy when they are online.
Mozilla doesn't just offer and safe and well responding Internet Browser they also offer many applications to make your computer safer and faster.

Some evidence of Mozilla's hard work shows in the viewing of many websites. For example in these next two pictures you can see a difference between Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.

Mozilla Firefox:

Internet Explorer:

Mozilla Firefox is overall safer, faster, cleaner, and even more adaptable and easier to use. Mozilla Firefox is adaptable with every website and offers everything and more that the normal Internet Explorer offers. Download Mozilla Firefox and I promise you that you will NOT be disappointed.

Hi, my mozilla firefox is so hard to open , and it takes minutes before it opens .. what will i do ?


HI,

Sometimes it depends on your internet connection speed, if your internet connection is slow, even if its not Mozilla, it will take time for a browser to load up. If it's really your Mozilla browser, you can try to uninstall and reinstall it. Click on Start > Control Panel > Uninstall a Program and then look for Mozilla Firefox then uninstall it, restart the computer after, then Open up your Internet Explorer and on the address bar, type mozilla.com and from their website, download the Mozilla browser again. You can try to download Google Chrome as you alternative browser.


Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...
