Hmmm... does the same problem happen in a different forum theme? Go to your Control Panel, select a new theme, and try again. If you feel really ambitious, let me know which ones work and which don't. That will help me fix the problem.

Works fine for me (Firefox 2.0.0.6). Are you running any plugins (popup blockers etc)?

Likewise - I have found that more web pages that I frequent have issues with firefox than IE. My other firefox annoyance is that it seems to load slower than IE. The crazy thing is though, I find I use both browsers on a regular basis.

The ad block, popup block and general all-round configuarability are what pull me to Mozilla. For me, at least, it loads pages faster than IE, I've always loved having tabs (I know IE has them now, but still) and it's just so damned versatile. With adblock plus and noscript I never get any ads. I've not seen a popup in a year and a half now.

Also it's not made by evil Microsoft ;-)

I admit, I wish IE was more versitle - that part I love about Firefox, but to tell the truth, I switch between the two at work so often, I find few big functional differences between the two with the exception that Firefox has trouble with more pages that I frequent than IE. The both have popup blocking, now both have tabs, and in theory, both have the ability to put on addons, but the nice thing on firefox is they are free, whereas most on IE are pay for, which irritates me. Oh well - I hate the browser wars that come out of this. The micro$oft argument always comes up, but to tell the truth, I have never paid for my M$ software - I always get it free through school or work, so I can't complain there either.
