    I downloaded Firefox and none of the web works; I set the damned thing to default, and now my shortcuts try to open w/ a browser that doesn't work. How do I make IE6 go back to default?

    Nevermind; got it. Deleted the Fox and fixed it. Now, the proxy issue on my other thread...

    None of the web works? Did you just forget to install flash or java plugins?

    If your asking about how to find out your proxy settings in another thread, did you set them up for firefox?

    That may be the reason it didn't work.;)

    You're going back to IE from Firefox? I use Firefox almost exclusively now. I keep IE just for the rare instances that something isn't displaying properly on Firefox.

    Btw, if something doesn't display properly on Firefox, it is not Firefox's fault. It's because whoever coded that webpage didn't do it correctly, and thought all was well just because it showed up ok on IE.

    I love Firefox! WAY faster than IE, and a lot more customizable!
