So, I decided to go on the computer to check some new and stuff, before I go to school, and I see all my bookmarks were randomly deleted!!! WTF?!
This happened once before, and I thought it was a glitch that I had part in doing, but no, not this time.
I hate firefox.

Damn, that sucks Acyrlic.

If the above link doesn't work, FF might have changed your profile. Used to happen to me all the time because this error would appear during use. Pissed me to no end, I'd loose all bookmarks and saved forms.

Start it up and see if there is more than one account, choose default or something.

I've had bookmarks deleted in older versions of Netscape (what I used before switching) and I think maybe once in a primitive version of Firefox. However, since version 1.x I've had no problems with it whatsoever... I'm not using 2.x though. Too many bugs, not enough awesome.

Mm, yeah. Opera all the way. Fight the high memory usage.
Fix'd.

I love Firefox, but it'll kill a system without a decent amount of RAM, and the longer it runs, the more memory it eats up (and it usually uses around 40k-50k K when it starts up, which is the most I've seen Opera use and about double what IE uses).

Opera's a nice browser if you ever feel the need to try something new, Cougar. It's much cleaner than IE to use... got nice features... everything can be easily tinkered with... very few people write Opera-specific spyware...

I'd use Firefox, but to be quite honest, I find it pretentious. I mean it reeks of a kind of superior elitism.

I use Opera now due to problem I had with Ie. With Ie I get freeze problems
when I try exiting Ie or just loading a site. I agree with spider here.
Opera is way cleaner than ie. Not as many things you can use with opera compared to
Ie but atleast I havnt ran into any problems lately( well big bad problems).

I have used Firefox before and wasnt really impressed sure it had a few nice features but they are irrelevent and i only used them once and didnt bother using them again :p

I havent used Opera before to be honest but ill look into it but seriously im so used to IE and i only use it for one thing looking at webisites and posting in forums so really there is no need for all these special features. its like a car IE like a Taurus its cheap and gets the job done, firefox is like a Acura comes with some nice stuff and Opera i guess is like a BMW nice clean riding lol

I'd die without tabs.

The thing I hate most about IE is that it had no tabbed browsing until IE7. And even now I won't use it just because I love the DownThemAll extention for firefox.

MrWally
12-01-2006, 07:26 PM
Right, I forgot that IE had tabs in version 7.

psh, still.

They aren't FIREFOX tabs.

I'm beginning to like Firefox again instead of Opera for some reason. Mainly because I can't seem to figure out how to disable Operas built in bittorrent client which drove me nuts. Oh well, I'm on Ubuntu now and I love my Fox.

Well, I'll be on Ubuntu until I break it again.

I wasn't to fond of Opera.

I used it for a week or so, and the mouse motions and everything were cool, but kinda... pointless.

I have IE 6 also. The windows taskbar acts like tabs for me. :)
I haven't had problems with IE, so I don't know why people are so against it. Just because it's Microsoft doesn't make it any more buggy than someone else's browser.

I find that people usually say that IE isn't that bad or IE is *shudders* good haven't even tried Firefox.

Here's the link to greatness:

I've tried FireFox. I liked it a lot better, but then got a new computer that has IE 7. So I just use that now.

IE7 uses more memory than Firefox.

Perhaps you could keep a guide to grammatically correct speech on one tab?

Perhaps you could keep a guide to grammatically correct speech on one tab?Perhaps he could, but I don't think that it would help him on here.

After all, we don't express ourselves through the medium of speech here. We use text as our medium. ;)
