Default %$#@&^*....Firefox!!!!!!!

Thought this might fit in with the topic This is a copy of my post in MozillaZine forums.
Any of you guys ever run into issues like this with Firefox?
.................................................. .................................................. .............
Like Dejablues on the 28th I am recently having problems with Firefox not displaying pages completely. Most often this includes the headers at the top, and very often other areas of the web pages as well.
Also I have found that I can log into my hotmail account no problem, but cannot access any emails while there, (for instance the email confirmation necessary to register for this forum).
I cannot seem to find anything on this via our friend (google), but I cannot be the only one experiencing this.
I have gone as far as loosening security settings and even installed the latest beta version of Firefox.
.................................................. .................................................. ...............

Happy new year all. Hope 2009 treats us all a little better

Firefox can fail in hotmail because of incorrect MIME type.

Make sure your running the latest version.

In that aspect, Firefox FTW, For LIFE.
Instead of google search I've added Scroogle to my search drop down menu

Chrome is definitely faster than FF 3 but I am still on FF 3 and don't feel the need to let Google monopolize my web habits.

If you want fast but don't like Google try Minefield. It's based on FF but is much faster. Still in beta but it works pretty good.

I switched from Fire Fox to Opera many moons ago and I've never looked back!

I'm still on IE6.
Firefox makes me mad on the Triplehead2go.

I still use it though.

How many do you need seriously? I'll stick with FF. Wish that IE wasn't even on Windows though. Uber crapola!
