Hi, I'm having a problem with opening some links in Firefox. I click and nothing happens. On one site it said that javascript has been disabled or that I need to download Flash Player, but I checked and javascript is enabled and I downloaded flash player just to be sure. Anyone know whats up?

I have been a firefox user so I have not used IE7 very often. I am about to install a new hard drive along with vista on my computer. I get the impression from your response, that IE7 should provide those features that made firefox the better browser. Which browseer is more secure and user friendly, in your opinion?
Thanks

For the most part I have been very happy with Firefox, and I'm not willing to give them up just for this. I'm sure there's a fix. Firefox has been much faster. I don't know which is more secure, but I've never had a problem with either.

I have been a big fan of firefox also. But I am starting to think that I would be better off if I have the minimum number of programs necessary to do what is needed. My question is if IE7 is better than firefox. If not I'll continue with firefox. When I get my new installation set up I'll give IE7 a chance for a month or so. If I don't like it as much I'll igo back to firefox.
