Has anyone else discovered that Windows 8 is not particularly friendly toward the latest version of Firefox? Or perhaps it's the other way around.
Either way, I love Firefox, but my new Windows 8 laptop seems to hate it. Browsing is painfully slow - giving me nightmarish memories of Dial Up.
Not that I'm aware of - I run Chrome, Firefox, IE10 on my Windows 8 PC and all work fine - IE10 actually seems to be the quickest so there may be a little favoritism, but the others work fine.
Simey, I tried all 3. IE worked fine, but to be honest, I just don't like it...lol So, one of the first things I did was to download FF. It crashed about 20 times, so I finally uninstalled it. I ended up having to do a system refresh on my PC after that. I was not a happy clam. So, I worked with IE for a bit, but still don't like it.
That was my final decision also, Nicole. I left FF installed because I use some sites that don't care for IE or Chrome, but my go-to is Chrome once again. It's funny now that I think of it. Simey mentioned a little favoritism in that IE works best for him, but I have to say that I've gotten the best performance out of Chrome. They even give you the option on download to switch to Windows 8 version. Gotta love competition.
If any of you guys play on Pogo.com IE is the only thing it'll work on. Which is why I haven't uninstalled IE on my computer...
Gotta have my Scrabble.
Oh! I used to be addicted to online Scrabble! Thankfully, now most of the things that I'm addicted to online make me at least a few cents here and there rather than just depriving me of much needed sleep.
Ah, yes. Hopefully I haven't sparked a relapse within you, M2C. A good month is when my internet earnings can offset my internet addictions by 1/2.
As an aside, once you figure out your windows 8 problem could you find my damn calculator?
I despise windows 8. It is a blight on humanity.
Not quite as bad as Vista...lol
Move your mouse into the corner so your fat ass toolbar comes up on the side. Highlight and click the Search icon (the magnifier, of course). Search apps...type in 'calc' It will allow you to drop it onto your desktop.
Let me know if it works for you. I had to do the same thing.
I have also had creeping issues with Firefox and Amazon / Createspace--like drop down menus not working. What a pain...
I had constant non-repsonding issues. I'd click on something and wait a full fifteen seconds for the action to take place, all with the Firefox is not responding crap. I'd type and my cursor would sit still until I'd completed an entire paragraph. UGH!

For the record, I am pro-Firefox."It doesn’t look good for Firefox: Almost every month for the last three years, Firefox has lost ground to Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Safari. For most of 2009 the trend was fairly straight as it fended off Chrome and nibbled away at IE, but between 2010...
