I understand that Google Chrome plans to continue supporting the Windows XP operating system for another year. Does anyone know Firefox's position concerning this support issue? Thanks in advance.

Are there any programs/extensions out there to make the editing/organizing of my bookmarks in Firefox any easier? I'm using XMarks to sync these bookmarks between my XP and OSX machines. [more inside]

Both latest IE and Firefox are hanging. I get the following two errors in Event Viewer Application Log:
1. Application Hang
Hanging application firefox.exe, version 188.8.131.5288, hang module hungapp, version 0.0.0.0, hang address 0x00000000.
2. Fault bucket 943649184.
I've run chkdsk...defrag...Dell diagnostics on memory and system. Nothing is jumping out. I've even run Ccleaner, nothing fixes this issue.
My google-fu is failing me...

I've read so much here lately 1 2 3
about not browsing as an admin, decided to check it out
and yepper, I surely was using an admin account. I've set up a non admin account, made a few other changes (described inside), hoping to find out from The Hive Mind if I am now safe enough to breathe easy(er). [more inside]

Google search problems here. I've asked around the local tech circle and no one can think up an explanation for this one. Google will load in FF and IE7 - but - I can only execute a search from IE. [more inside]

How much work will it take me to change from IE6 to Firefox? Looking at the list of problems in AMF, should a person not highly computer literate make the change? I use XP and have MS office installed and am now learning to write web pages -- CSS, HTML, Java.. Thanks in advance for your advice.

For my work, I've been asked to prevent a client's son from browsing porn on the family computer without spending money on NetNanny style products. I confess to encountering some difficulty. I have set Win XP to use the MVPS hosts file and tried a couple of free porn filters but have come up against a brick wall. Help me! [more inside]

Why has my Firefox slowed down?
It started a few day ago. Sometimes it takes several minutes for a page to load. Some only partially load, then stop. Some don't load at all. Not every page is this way, but I'd say about 20% suffer from one of these problems. IE is zipping right along though. I did a virus check, ran Spy-bot and Ad-Aware and cleaned up my registry. Yet the problem persists. Oh, I'm running 1.0 and XP Pro.

I was going to hold off installing XP Service Pack 2 for a few months. Whilst I use Firefox rather than IE6, the jpeg vulnerability is listed as affecting XP itself. Do I really need to installing it as soon as possible? Is everyone else installing SP2 now?

Eudora + Firefox + XP: every time I launch a link from within an email, Firefox opens it twice in two identical windows, and I also get a blank IE window. Needless to say, I just want one version of the link. In Firefox.
Spybot, Adaware, Hijackthis and AVG show nothing untoward on my system. Anyone else get this?

MS Conspiracy Filter: Just installed XP SP2--which adds "pop-up blocking" to IE--and all of a sudden the pop-up blocking feature built into Firefox
turns off every time I restart the app. Is anyone else seeing this? [little bit more inside] [more inside]
