Sorry No1, most of this stuff goes straight over my head.
Have noticed moving around the site is a lot slower lately, not so with the Patrol or Perth 4x4 sites, which I visit regularly.

One thing though, something keeps switching my firewall off every few minutes, pain in the arse.
Suppose theres some little idiot somewhere stuffing peoples puters up, wish he'd get a life.


Cheers.....Lionel.

Possibly something different in FF 3. Quote:
"Firefox 3 is based on the new Gecko 1.9 Web rendering platform, which has been under development for the past 30 months and includes nearly 2 million lines of code changes, fixing more than 12,000 issues. Gecko 1.9 includes some major re-architecting for performance, stability, correctness, and code simplification and sustainability. Firefox 3 has been built on top of this new platform resulting in a more secure, easier to use, more personal product with a lot under the hood to offer website and Firefox add-on developers."

Translation: it does some things differently to FF 2, but exactly what will probably take everyone (including David) years to work out! Sorry, can't help any further :-(

Cheers, John

No problems here with FF, except for the occasional busy server delay (and less than there were a couple of months ago). What version are you using?
With some other sites though I've noticed FF just won't load the page, and in those cases I try with IE, which usually loads the page quickly. In those cases it's the way the web pages have been set up, with no consideration browsers other than IE are being used (eg Telstra mobile coverage maps always give central Melbourne with my FF, regardless of what state/area was specified).
Will be interesting to see what happens in the longer term, as IE8 is supposed to follow the "rules" for web page display, as does FF but not IE7 and previous IE versions.

Cheers, John

Just did a test running FF under Ubuntu LInux and a then at the same time IE under XP and IE under Vista Ultimate. Both XP and Vista were running in virtual PC's on the same Linux machine, I then accessed the same EO forum page and found no difference in load speed. Both XP and Vista have all security options turned off as Linux looks after that side.

Always found netscape (precurser to FF) on Unix faster (Solaris & Berkley or sys 5), but had to leave that world because of Bill Gs domination in the software I run.
Did try Ubuntu for a while, but problems getting the drivers I needed. See what happens with Windows 7, seems the beta version is a lot faster than vista.

Found that my ISP was part of the problem.

I have adsl and Next G at home, and often find the Next G faster, but not all of the time.

Using FF/Mozilla all of the time, Mr Gates has enough money he doesn't need more support from the little I have.
