Firefox browser and

by nondaj / October 29, 2004 3:10 PM PDT

Have tried everything and posted everywhere re this problem. When I use this browser, which I do like because of the security features, now on almost every website I get the message "this doctument has no data" and so I have to start all over again. Many times when I try to post on line will get the message and have to click out of the browser and begin from desktop to access the website again to redo my message. It is getting to be a headache it is so persistent now.

Have tried the following:

checked my ISP and they claim not due to their service p

tried to check with MS but trying to get through to
their tech lines is another whole issue in itself.
Gave up in frustration at the delays, convoluted
menu and continued disconects from the phone line

tried to check with firefox, directed to Bugzilla and gave up in frustration at all I would have to go through to get any info, leave a message

checked with other users of Firefox; they claim have no problems and only difference I can find is they do not have SP2. Whether that is the culprit do not know.

Tried checking on several SP2 sites but could find no info about broswers problems with SP2 - just other horror stories:)

Anyone out there in PC ether having similar problem with this browser?

Using XP Pro SP2
Pentium 4,
CPU Processor 2.53 gigahertz
512 RAM
Outlook Express
IE and Firefox browsers

Grateful for ANY new information anyone might have.

Vera K. - sure do appreciate your feedback. Gives me some hope. Would you be so kind as to tell me what window I should be in for tools, options, cookies, exceptions. I could only go as far as tools and options. Found no notation re cookies but did find under web features an exception window. Not clear if this is where I should be to do any posting.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
