Firefox Work! I Command You!

My Firefox has been a bitch lately. It's slower than usual and it even froze up on me earlier today. While Im not ruling this out, I highly doubt it's a virus or spyware as I'm not going to any irregular sites, just the same ones that I never had problems with even when I used IE. Now, not long ago, I did make it so I could watch videos and listen to music, but just for Youtube and Myspace. I just had some plugin installed that Mozilla's website suggested. I don't think it would have this affect on Firefox... but knowing my backwords working PC, I wouldn't doubt it. Otherwise, I don't know what could be causing Firefox to run so slow. I can't even use IE anymore which is why I switched in the first place, so if Firefox stops working on me, Im f@#ked.

I just installed the new IE, I like it better than Firefox, it does have some bugs that need to be fixed

IE 7 blows hard. It does nothing new that other browsers have been doing for sometime. The only time I use IE is for some sites that require it. Firefox 2 with add-ons is sweet. I love it. SO many features and options.

BV...maybe you computer just sucks more now than before :P Try disabling the plugin and see if that helps. If not...do you have any antivirus/anti spyware programs/

*sighs* ... it's not one of NOS's "lady friends" or anything...

It's actually a browser.

To be honest, with your computer, Firefox isn't a great idea. It's a huge memory hog, even on my computer with a gig of RAM, it still runs sluggish.

You're better off with IE6 or Opera. Just be careful when you're going to "sites".

I ain't got no Viruses!!! :D

I think it's just my PC. It's $h!ty in the first place and I'm probably overloading it. In the past few weeks, my mom has put some games on it and I've put that plugin as well as Limewire on it. I've had Firefox for a while now. As I said, IE doesnt want to work, all I get are errors. I also get of illegal operation warnings everytime I connect to the internet. Luckilly, it doesnt disconnect me, just disables PeoplePC. That and I hit my PC when it was being slow the other day. It froze and started making a noise. It wouldn't turn off... had to unplug it. Whoops. :P

My computer has Netscape... It's how I downloaded Firefox when IE quit on me. It's slow as hell.

That's odd, Firefox hasn't been sluggish for me until just recently and I've had it since this summer.
