Yep, totally. You shouldn't do that.

Nobody told me where images work and where they don't, and everybody uses images on the boards and in reviews and descriptions, so I figure that I can use them everywhere, but I guess that's not true. Maybe one of the admins shouldput a note on the smilie page that says where they can be used, and where they can't.

@DaVince, I am not anti-other browsers, I just HATE IE, it's slow and has huge holes in it's security.

I would do with any browser that properly implements XHTML 1.1 and CSS1 and 2. It's not much to ask for ,unfortunately I'm unlikely to get one in the near future. Safari doesn't implement CSS on form elements properly, Firefox has crazy bugs with parts of CSS and IE6 - well IE6 is just crap.

I use IE on my windows machine. like everyone says about PC's here; if you have anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-torjan, worm, etc applications running then your system should be fine. mine is.

How many people running FireFox aren't running Linux here? i mean IE is full of holes like another piece of software i can mention. practice what you preach - get Linux.

hmm, I have been considering linux, the only pronlem is that just about no programs run on it. Wine kinda fixes that, but I have found that it crashes almost as much as windows.

Personally, I dont have many reasons to stick with FireFox, but the few I do are good enough to keep me on FireFox.
1. I love the fact that FireFox actually shows PNG's with alpha channeling, weird, but true... IE cant, it only shows a gray background.
2. Dont ask how I know this, but I have been able to go through virus/spyware infested sites, that would have killed IE or my PC if I used IE, but havent touched me or FireFox, mainly because of its lack to use ActiveX.
3. All the plugins, if you ge the right ones, do an amazing job in improving the way I search the internet!
4. This one might be a little like the second one, but every sence I started using FireFox, I NEVER had any problems with spyware screwing up my PC!
5. The nice built in, very clean & crisp, search bar that can let you search various engines with ease.
6. The fact that I dont have to worry about my homepage randomly changing, or toolbars mysteriously appearing for no reason. Same with ghost bookmarks that some how just happen to appear.
7. The very small & overlooked, but nice... "I Feel Lucky" feature, from Google, basicly built right into the search bar, so you can just type in a website name, & chances are, that site will come up.

Other then the above, there really isnt anything extremly golden about FireFox, but I 'never' use Internet Explorer, unless I just happen to run accross a website that doesnt like FireFox.

Slow? IE runs just as fast then Firefox for me, infact seems faster. and startsup alot quicker.

"Nobody told me where images work and where they don't, and everybody uses images on the boards and in reviews and descriptions, so I figure that I can use them everywhere"
-Ofcourse you cant use them in thread titles, i thought it was pretty much commen sense around here that an Image in a thread title would screw it up.

I myself use IE, i do have firefox but i never use it. IE is alot more simplistic and easy to use.
Also IE isnt bad for security, unless you dont have a good Anti-Virus and Spyware scanner, which you should be running anyway if your running windows.

@Brandon Cassata: Yeah, I like firefox for all of those reasons, plus some others. I have found that IE really is much slower than FireFox (for me), and has huge security holes, every time I open it about 10 popups open immediatly, with more that come at random times later.

@Crystal Clear (H.E.S.): I am pretty sure I have seen people put smilies in thread titles before.
Anyway, I don't see how IE is any more simplistic, Firefox has the same backwards, forwards, reload, stop, home, ect....

@X_Sheep: Really, vitalize works fine for me and I installed it easily. I thought firefox was actually easier to install plug-ins than IE.

@DaVince: As Phizzy said, IE isn't other browsers, I don't mind netscape, opera, safari, konqueror, or anything like that.

@Broomie: Well, I like Firefox enough to advertise it a bit, but if you don't like it that's fine with me, as long as you use it.

Well, I think that's everything.

I say: Not really. Most of the time Firefox refuses to use an installed plug-in, which I've probably installed 5 times already. (and that's not just Vitalize)

Alot of times FireFox does bug me about installing plugins that I already have installed, but they work anyway, so I ignore them. As far as those popup Keaton, thats prolly a pure case of spyware right there, which even farther proves IE's disability to defend againced it, though the combination between: Ad-aware, Spybot: Search & Destroy, and Microsoft AntiSpyware, should not only fix the problem, but avoid it from happening granted you scan every once & awhile & with Microsoft AntiSpyware, keep it running in the background. It will request permission for most system changes that Spyware would do without your permission, it makes sure nothing gets past you without your permission.

I do use firefox, but I don't believe why people think its totally different and superior. Sure, it's not quite as vulnerable to spyware or popup-adds (thats probably the only reason why I use it), but if you have any adware/spyware on your pc it's best to get rid of it anyway because they can cause crashes and slowdowns.

Sometimes forefox is a pain on sites that use plugins, like on fileplanet. I also hate firefox's download manager, half the time when I download a big file the thing turns out corrupt. Also, if the internet connection drops mid-download it doesn't seem to want to re-connect to the server and you have to start downloading again.
