Just set Firefox as your default browser and you're good to go!

but all that aside...
Firefox is awesome, apart from all the cool features and cusstomisability, once it loads it is faster than ie, and from what I have seen it has better security...
Plus it displays websites alot better than internet explorer because it has a lot more support for the document object model and css...

If you like Firefox, check out Thunderbird (e-mail client like outlook...only better) and Sunbird (calendar/planner)...they're awsome, too...

In my opinoin, Windows Media Player is a particularly bad media player compared to others out there, I think it plays music at a lower quality than other players and it does use up ALOT of memory, but it does the job I guess .
Memory use is most probably the reason why things are running slow though. Admittedly, Firefox uses a fair whack of memory itself so the combination might be using alot of your system memory causing it to run slow.
How much RAM does your computer have?
(to determine this find my computer, right click on it, go to properties and then it should show up on the right-hand side of that dialogue box, towards the bottom...)

Thats what it should look like, and the RAM info is under Computer along with information about your cpu...
but if it doesn't show you that then another way to see it is to press alt+ctrl+del (all at once) and then click on task manager... While you have firefox and windows media player running, see what the Commit Charge is (it is at the very bottom of the window and to the right... it will have a number followed by an M then a / then another number followed by an M (i.e. 349M / 2462M, which is what mine currently is)... This will tell us whether it is a lack of memory thats causing the problem, because the first number tells us how much RAM is being used and the second number is telling us how much RAM you have
