it is a far superior Browser - download Firefox then dump Internet Explorer

HerBeatitude Mon 21-Sep-09 21:06:16

ooh I might be too scared to dump IE

Are you even allowed to do that?

gallusbesom Mon 21-Sep-09 21:19:17

well you could keep it I suppose and just change Firefox to your default browser and then Bill Gates won't send the heavies round grin

The one I had before was so simple - you could block yourself for 15 minutes or a whole week...

oh bugger i've downloaded firefox but it still won't let me download that program - says that the extension is wrong.
