I've been a happy user of the Firefox browser for many years, but their latest version has been a disaster for me. Suddenly, it's horribly slow, has trouble displaying all of a webpage, has trouble with displaying when you switch between tabs, input freezes up…

So I'm switching over to a new browser. Which is a headache.

Hmmm, I have been using Firefox for awhile now, and recently I've been having problems using Ancestry.com. It makes me wonder if Firefox is the reason.

Yes, I'm having problems with Ancestry.com using Firefox as well.

Different browsers have different issues. On the Tablet I have to use IE because it won't let me load anything else. On the PC I normally use Chrome. Recently I went to buy some software and couldn't get the shopping basket. When I queried this with the supplier they said it sounded like I was using Chrome and should try another browser. Sure enough IE worked. No accounting for how different browsers interact with sites.

Hmmm… looks like I can keep using Firefox, long as I use Ancestry in a different browser! LOL

Starting yesterday, Firefox began hanging up and spinning, Not Responding. It would eventually kick in. This morning I thought I would be smart and try to "restore" it. Did…but now all my Bookmarks are gone.

And it still "Not Responds"….

I'm using Firefox. It works fine.

Firefox updates so often that web designers can not keep up. For a more stable Firefox you can use the ESR version. Also it is good to have several browsers to choose from. When something does not work in one of them try another before declaring something being broken.

We're heading back to the 90's. Web masters are designing their sites to be 'optimized' for specific browsers. So you'll have to switch to the 'best' browser for specific sites.

The internet is getting less useful as time goes on.

They never stopped doing that. Leveraging specific active content controls is fundamentally the same thing.

Actually, not using tons of HTML extensions and active content is one of the reasons I like the way TMP is implemented and don't want it to go screaming into the 21st Century where things are "better".
