I was wondering, why can Firefox show www.dogpile.com. isnt that a clean search engine? Same for www.msn.com when you click on messenger it wont let you access that either. Also, does anybody know if there is an extension that you can download that will automatically clean up all of the pictures/downloads that you have saved? thanks in advance.

hey drew hows it, fiefox does not use activeX thats why you cannt login to msn email, microsoft does not support it in its netframework/passport,if you do online banking or pay some credit cards sat tv etc, most sites need a trident based web browser(ie) though they say a gecko web browser is fine(netscape firefox opera) however i have found out (the hard way) that they only except the new aol/netscape. i think it some form of coleution microsoft and aol have been in bed togather for ever.from a web browser point of view firefox and netscape are one in the same they are both gecko rendering engines just a different wrapper, to make your surfing faster you can use adblock for firefox it blocks almost all adds as well if you want you can have flash installed(macromedia7)as a lot of sites want you to run flash so they can display things that will catch your eye..if you do alot of surfing just us ie for certin sites and firefox for all else cheers :tazz: keep fighting the good fight

hey dude sorry to hear your still having probs, r u using adblock for firefox if so check inside to see that the sites you want to surf r not listed in there.also r u running a locked hostes file if so check your hostes file to see if the sites u want to surf are in there, if so remove them.also running 2 firewalls is not the wisest thing to due it can cause al kinds of issues.also i reember that dogpile was at one time considerd spyware/adware etc...hope this helps cheers :tazz: keep fighting the good fight
