I asked the folks over at moogis a question about subscribing ad they told me I should be running firefox instead of internet explorer. I have never heard of firefox, is there going to be a difference in quality if i don't install and use firefox??? what exactly is firefox anyhow??

I use Firefox - it is an internet browser, just like Internet Explorer, Opera, and a few others. You can have IE and Firefox on the same PC, no problems. I like some of the tab features of Firefox better than IE. It also seems to be a little faster.

Download it here: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/

Firefox even runs faster on my Mac. I had been using Safari, and was able to import my favorites to Firefox with no problems a few months ago. It's my #1 browser now.

You can download firefox for free. I like it much better than IE and highly recommend it.

I think I saw something on the Moogis site where some people were having issues with IE, though I don't know the specifics. You will need the Flash 10 player, which should work on either one. I can get Moogis to work on both......

I have had no problems with IE and Moogis. I have used firefox and it is cool, so if you're having problems, just download firefox and you should be fine.

Funny, I can't get it to work with Firefox (says log in complete...please wait) and then it sends me back out to the log-in page.

Internet Explorer works for me.

Oh yeah.

The "block spiral images" feature is a great selling point.

I wasn't having any problems, but trusting people like Sang and others here who are way more computer savvy than me I downloaded Firefox. Either way my house will be rocking in the month of March.

Firefox is a much safer internet browser than IE.

Less to worry about.

Some people's video cards aren't able to handle flash well and some processors aren't able to handle the bandwidth and load up quickly enough thus a buffering issue arises. Firefox is leaner on its video content so there is less stress on up loading the video content at the web site.

Also, on either browser, at some point eventually each has to have a clearing of all cookies and passwords and so forth. I don't know why this is but it is true if you are having logging in problems especially. You might have saved some cookies and they expired so you have to clear them out before new ones can be added. Something like that.

I always check expiration dates when I buy cookies.

Milk & eggs too.

I decided to install Firefox and check it out - my IE must be clogged up with some bad stuff, as it is slow as molasses. I signed on here from Firefox and it is quick as lightning. I do all the necessary anti virus/spyware etc. etc. on IE and it is way slow.
