FF is an excellent browser. Safari, Chrome & Opera too. The one that
stinks is IE...

Do you know what the expression "bare bones" means?

Oh, a misunderstanding Jorge! I was just asking Roy, it was not meant to
be a trivia quiz...

Firefox is great if you need any of the many extensions. Some of these
extensions, like NoScript, make the browser go bananas. When I tested
NoScript the browser started to crash. I could not uninstall it or
reinstall Firefox. I had to uninstall Firefox, delete all folders, and
then install it again.

IMO, Firefox without extensions should be as fast as any browser.

conceptual communist or something? <g>

A browser that has noting else to brag about should be fast.

Conceptual communist? Is your world that black and white?

Anyone that have used Firefox can see that it don't live up to its
expectations.

When you install it, it has nothing to offer, when you install ad-ons
it seems ok.

But it has things to brag about. It was regarded by many of us as a
great contrast to IE in keeping much more to the standards that are
admired by the web developing world. It does not seem to me to be
importantly slower than other browsers in surfing but I agree it is a
real slow coach starting up, it maybe thinks it is the engines in the
Titanic, maybe I don't know any more because I have it *for* its
extensions and not that much else.

I am afraid so, Roy, am big of B&W pics, both still and movie.

So! You think it has a mind of its own! <g>

Perhaps nowadays, it is not as competitive. But was once.

FF 3.5.3
Outside : 156MS
Inside : 16 seconds (with a long period of "Not Responding").

There is another similar bug with Firefox 3.5.3 and Textareas. If you
set the value of a textarea to more than about 500 lines, you get a
similar sort of very long delay. This is an already reported bug.
