I feel your pain. I really dislike learning new computers/programs/systems. Hang it there, it will be second nature soon.

Is your internet speed and modem up to par? Those can slow you down more than the computer (provided the computer is fairly clean)

I would also replace IE9 with Google chrome. Firefox used to be great but has too many bugs now to run smoothly.

DITTO. Firefox 5 is total a disaster.



Windows7 is awesome! WAY better than Vista :bigsmile:

I just went through this DF. I'm old too and I love Windows 7! It was easy to figure out. If I can do it, you can do it!

Tell about bugs w/Firefox. Pages have been loading really slowly lately on my computer & I've been blaming Time-Warner cable (HATE them!!!!!) -- maybe it's the fault of Firefox?

DF download Firefox instead of using IE. It's in my opinion and experience far safer on a PC.

Laurie Firefox 5 freezing & crashing is apparently a common problem - pretty much everyone I work with has switched to Chrome at this point for everything but actual development. Can't roll back to Firefox 4 b/c of security issues, so your options I think are v3 or v5 - or something else entirely :sick:

ETA Just saw Firefox 6 is out! I'm downloading it now.

I go between Safari and Firefox, but I am almost always on a mac.

We are glad this solved the problem. This would explain why I did not see the issue as I was still using v3 when testing for you. I also recommend Chrome. :))
