I posted a rant not long ago about trojans sneaking in through Firefox, though Opera did not have the same trouble. Now then, just recently I updated my video driver, and afterward found most characters in Firefox were somewhat blurry. I verified that Vista's Wordsmooth or whatever it's called was running, though I finally found the solution to lie in disabling Firefox's hardware acceleration feature.

Good grief, why is Firefox such a pain in the behind lately? Whatever happened to the good old days when it was the least worrisome PC browser anybody could possibly use?

No problems here (except for the idiotic government agencies that require the use of I.E... [yes I know about IETab but there are some things that it still doesn't work with])

No problems here.

Every piece of software has annoyances, you don't like them? You use something else and get on with life.

An upgrade occurs on the software and you don't like it? Use something else and stop whining.
