    And I'll be one of the first to jump off the Firefox bandwagon if I can't stop the ads.

    I agree and I will un-install from all of our systems.

    Ad Block Plus. If they work their way around that I'll be back to IE in a minute.

    You might as well start using a dial up modem as well.

    Try Chrome. Way faster than Firefox.

    Browser people are getting more and more stupid. Chrome has removed scrollbar arrows. Android Chrome will not allow a home button. Now this from Firefox.

    Please, tell me more about this. I work in the IT industry, have for almost a decade. I also do web design as a second job. Have for years and years. I use IE and Firefox interchangeably and have never noticed a considerable difference, aside from one or two bad releases in IE over the years (Firefox has had some Turd releases, too, let me tell you.)

    Chrome, on the other hand, has been responsible for more problems on machines I've dealt with than IE and Firefox combined. Yet people keep pushing that pile of **** for some strange reason.

    Oh well, what do I know? I'm sure everyone else is the expert.

    Mostly because it opens and loads pages significantly faster and has less bloat.

    I'm just and end user and that's all that really matters to me, I use Ubuntu on a 90's era machine and I have never had one issue with Chrome.

    Oh well what do I know, maybe I'm just lucky like all the other people pushing Chrome you were talking about.

    Firefox is an open source browser. There are several browsers based on the Firefox source code available.

    In BSD and Linux Firefox is optimized for the operating systems.

    The Windows version of Firefox is generic and not optimized and usually 32 bit even for 64 bit Windows.

    Pale Moon is a browser based on Firefox and is optimized for Windows.


    Pale Moon is available in both 32 bit and 64 bit versions.

    All of the automatic stuff and extra stuff in Firefox is left out of Pale Moon.

    Firefox extensions aren't enabled by default in Pale Moon.

    To use Firefox extensions with Pale Moon the instructions that are prompted on first installing Pale Moon need to be followed.

    To get Pale to work for all Windows users on a single computer, there is are single user and multi-user installers available.

    It's best to install as a user and use the admin password instead of running as admin to install Pale Moon.

    Pale Moon can be installed along side of Firefox and Firefox does not have to be uninstalled, but it can be.

    I totally agree. Chrome almost never gives me any problems.
