I use Comodo Dragon myself. Someone else here likes FF. I just checked FF (22.0), and it's working fine. I think I would uninstall and reinstall.

And I'm missing the finer points of why you posted the quoted above.

Since both my home and work machine is using 64-bit Windows 7, I have been using Waterfox 15 the last couple of years or so. I just upgraded to Waterfox 18 and it is looking good! I had no real issues before anyhow. I use IE 10 at work but I know quite a few people had issues with random sites. IE9 seems the norm and anything older is "dated". At work, we kept IE at version 8 due to compatibility issue with certain Intranet sites but if a user didn't use those few sites using iffy code, we install 9. I have IE 9 at home and version 10 on my work PC, they both work fine but I don't use either for my normal browsing. Especially at home, I feel "naked" using IE even when I have clothes on.

Some users seems to like FF and some prefer Chrome, we let them have their picking on what alternative browser they want. IE is default and is used for Intranet sites. Over the years, I used Opera on and off. It was seemingly fast and I tried liking it but couldn't continue using it on a daily basis (similar to Linux Distros). I always ended up going back to FF/Waterfox.

I decided to download IceDragon (FF version of Comodo) for a look see and it didn't tale long for me to be disappointed. One of the options during install is to copy all bookmarks, etc from your default browser, which I checked.

Didn't copy a thing which makes it useless as I'm not going to do it by hand.

I seem to remember trying the Comodo firewall a long time ago and uninstalling almost immediately as it wouldn't work right.

I never tried Ice Dragon. I've been using the Chrome-based Comodo Dragon for awhile and really like it... very fast. I never had any problems importing/exporting bookmarks with it.

I also tried their firewall, but I didn't care for it at the time.

I use FF/WF and while I like WF I find it pukes with Flash frequently. Just reload the page and it will work. It's done that for a few versions now.

I uninstalled and reinstalled IceDragon to make sure I checked the box for imports. It didn't import them. I noticed a lot of baggage came with it that I would never use. I don't like having to turn off five or six things right off the bat. It also did not display text boxes and dialog boxes correctly. Text boxes were running off the right side of the dialog box, and 1/2 of the OK and Cancel buttons were hidden at the bottom of the box.

Dragon may work well, but IceDragon doesn't.

Works for me. Would rather use chrome, but they are stubborn and will not add a fixed bookmarks sidebar to the left side of their browser so I will not use it.

I'm testing it out right now. So far, it's pretty fast and smooth. I have installed a few privacy and adblocking add-ons, everything seems to be working pretty well. I went on You Tube and played a random video without any issues.
