    I started using Firefox a while ago, but i can't get certain java
    'bits' to work on certain sites (i don't recall URL's right now)

    I've had to keep IE in the background for such issues, which really
    annoys me.

    Just looking for a nice Outlook Express alternative (i actually like
    OE's interface) and i can move away from MS internetivity!

    Dam shame it IE can't be removed from the OS (XP in my case) entirely...

    Ditto. Much as I'd like to ditch IE, as long as there are sites out there
    that I regularly use that *can't* be displayed by alternative browsers, I'll
    hang on to IE.

    Perhaps it's time to try Opera again.

    I tend to try Firefox on sites that Opera can't handle, before I resort
    to IE - there aren't many non-ActiveX sites that they can't handle
    between them, but you do need to keep IE for some stuff :-(

    Probably sites requiring the Microsoft Java Virtual Machine?
    Try Thunderbird, the mail/news companion of Firefox.

    Mozilla has both email and browser components:

    Buy the cd to support the developers if you want to.

    MicroPlanet Gravity is also extremely flexible. I have
    rules setup to automatically highlight any threads that
    I've participated in. (Which makes it very easy to keep
    track.) Mozilla's news reader still has issues with
    thread sorting, and lacks useful features like being
    able to ignore an entire thread, or watching a
    particular thread.

    Only downside to Gravity is that it's a bit of a memory
    hog if you follow a lot of active groups. (My copy is
    eating 250MB at the moment, version 2.60b.) It's also a
    bit dated (used to be a commercial product, later
    abandoned, and there's a single developer left who works
    on it for free... or something along those lines).

    IntelliCast's weather radar "java loop" didn't work for
    me either in Firefox until I found the proper JVM to
    install (jre-1.4.1-win32.xpi).

    No clue whether the above works with Firefox 0.9 or the
    latest Mozilla releases, check the release notes for an
    updated JRE.

    yeah let the hackers (employed by various entities) run your life....
    I'll kick that exploit, like the rest, straight to the curb with the
    rest of the trash....I will not be tricked into thinking we need
    GOVERNMENT interference in the net.

    Yes, i use Gravity 2.60b (wish i could get the x-archive header right
    Not concerned about free, but would like something that works as well as
    OE can, looks as straightforward, but is less prone to security issues.
    Interesting ....

    Yes, have tried that, but i like the way you can set up multiple POP
    accounts in OE and not have to switch back and forth between them.

    I tried setting up Thunderbird with my 5 accounts i use, plus the
    folders i filter messages into, and i had a folder list that disappeared
    off the screen!

    Maybe i set it up wrong?

    For mail, have you tried Eudora? It doesn't do news though. I use
    Agent for that.
