Firefox still lacks speed...

by ibight / February 25, 2005 12:57 AM PST

I know firefox is better than MSIE. Still there are few problems. One of them which I feel very disgusting...
I see there is some problem in loading a page after some event. When I click a link, there is a delay transferring and receiving data from domain.

Do you all experience this?

Not I, but then ...

I posted a popular tip in the XP forum and the Browser forum about common FF speedups. The stock settings are very safe and not that fast.

In answer to your question. No.

I have to re-install XP fairly regularly. I have never been able to get recovery or repair to work right. IE6 is always corrupted by that time. It only works right after re-install. Firefox has only exhibited problems when XP screws up. It's been very stable on its own.

Why do you have to re-install XP so often?

Do you have problems with viruses, spyware, ad-ware, and/or hackers that your protection software is unable to handle?

You need;

A firewall, to prevent hackers from invading your computer,

An anti-virus program, with it's virus definitions kept uptodate, and the computer scanned regularly,

An anti-adware program to fight against adware pop-ups,

Anti-spyware programs to fight against the ever increasing problem of spyware.

What programs do you use?
