    Ever since I updated to the new IE 7, my IE is running very very slowly, sometimes not loading pages at all. Any advice?

    Okay, short of that......:) I won't rule it out, just easier right now to stick with IE.

    Not saying I want to do this, but if I change from Firefox to IE, what happens to my favorites?

    The first time you run Firefox it will ask you if you want to import your Favorites. After that, you can always Import them in, it's a snap.

    I love Firefox, have used it since it came out and refuse to use IE unless I need to check a website for compatiablity when working on my website.

    hey folks...first post in a while after some self-imposed time off and vacation.

    Tom, in the bottom RH corner of your screen, is there a little window with a green status bar moving across? That is an anti-phishing filter. It filters every page. That was the source of my slow loads on some of my machines. Go into tools--options--and disable it...see if that works.

    You don't even need IE for that

    https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1419/

    This extension lets you load pages in IE within Firefox

    Already disabled it. That's not it. Thanks for the suggestion, though

    As for extension suggestions, here's a copy of a small list I posted in the "Speaking of Firefox" thread:
    Note that this list is not exhaustive, nor is it all of the extensions I use. It is, however, the extensions I thought the majority of BB members would get the most use and protection out of.

    IE7 works great for me! The tabs option, the quick tabs option and the over all functionality do exactly what I need and beyond.

    The FireFox crowd have a neat little browser tool, but IE7 is the king! :)

    As for it running slowly... Is it just IE7 going slow or are other programs being effected?

    Mostly IE7, but every now and then something runs a little slower than usual.

    Something else I don't like about IE 7...I can't highlight searched words on the page.

    Microsoft has issued an update for IE7, but it isn't on the Automatic Updates list.

    How did you do that????

    I hate the new IE7 toolbar and don't want IE7 on my computer. I want to go back to IE6.

    I tried to restore my computer to an earlier time and it wouldn't let me.

    I can't find out where to uninstall IE7. Hellllllllp!!!!
