Yep, I've jumped ship too. Firefox is much nicer. What is IE again?

It's a Latin thing meaning "that is".

Note: some of the uninformed think it stands for "Internet Explorer", a poorly written and now defunct product from a company called Microsoft.

Don't forget that Firefox renders faster than IE as well.
And its updated more often.
And it has the way cool Google search bar.
And you can change the search engine used in the search bar.
And you can veiw the source code for Firefox.
And...well you get the picture.

Try http://www.iiyama.co.uk/ instead of http://www.iiyama.co.uk/html/noflash.html ?
It does work in firefox. You shouldn't need to even restart the browser, but it might be worth trying.

DOH! Thanks Aedan, everytime I tried the page it came up with the noflash.htm page, I should have just refreshed!

Make sure you have patched your Firefox/Mozilla/Thunderbird as they have vulnerabilities too. The current version of Firefox is 0.92.

Just one thing I'm missing from IE - it doesn't highlight the previously clicked link(s) (for instance in a google search) once you return to the search page. Is it possible to enable this? Thanks

Firefox is a lot better then IE, but I do webpage work so I still have to use IE to check the page.

BTW, I have noticed that firefox does not display the alt text for images, is there anyway to set it to show the alt text?

Thanks.
