    Two main problems really, one is that it has epileptic fits with flash content like on the gamespot website Ė I followed the steps of disabling Obj-tabs in Adblock and that didnít do anything, I didnít even have Adblock to begin with and only downloaded it to disable those tabs. I also went into the Quicktime settings and made sure it wasnít selected for browsing. Uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox hasnít helped either



    The other problem happens at random, all of a sudden everything I click on opens in a new tab and the wheel button on my mouse goes from scrolling up and down to enlarging/minimizing text Ė itís really annoying and shutting down/restarting Firefox doesnít help, I have to restart the computer completely


    *and also, the wysiwyg posting box takes awhile to load

    did you remember to delete your firefox profiles (backing up your bookmarks of course) before re-installing?

    i had a mobo that would act like i was pressing the ctrl key. the only way around this was to buy a USB keyboard so i didn't have to use the ps2 port.

    doesn't the gamespot site fix itself once it's finished loading?

    I've been using FF and an old version of Opera side by side for awhile now, think I'll be using Opera more from now on
