Firefox down?

Has anyone else had trouble getting Firefox to work today? I even tried removing it and then reloading it.

Firefox...ummppphh! Spent a lot of time on a 56k modem downloading Firefox 3 only to find, upon executing the .exe file, that it requires a minimum of Windows 2000. I have 98 SE. Must have missed the "fine print".

Same kind of thing that AVG anitvirus done to me. THat download took near 3 hours.

AVAST isn't the greatest in the world, but it still works with 98 SE.

You just have to turn on your PC at least 20 minutes before you want to use it while AVAST updates its virus files.

I didn't have any problems with Firefox.

DeltaDoc, I love Avast. We've had the paid versions of Norton and McAfee but have gotten viruses in the past that neither would get rid of for us. We ended up trying Avast with one particularly bad one (nothing else would remove it.....AVG, Norton, etc) and have never looked back. I think we first started using it 3 years or so ago. I know it was before we moved into this house over 2 years ago. The updates are annoying but I don't know of any other antivirus that updates as often. Updates are a good thing with all the new viruses, trojans, etc. that come out. We also use Spybot Search and Destroy and Lavasoft's AdAware.

I agree. AVAST found stuff that others (AVG) missed. BUT...my memory is almost gone, I only have 64mb Ram, and when AVAST starts "spinning" it's little icon globe, nothing else will work until its done. It takes about 20 minutes for it to update its files. That aside, I like it too.

Thanks all. After an hour on the phone with Qwest (IE had stopped working too) and much fiddling around, everything is working again. Though a proxy server that we need for access to some data bases had to be disconnected. So that's another problem altogether. :( Sigh. Doncha love it?

Oh I can just imagine how annoying it is for you. I have DSL......can't remember how much ram but at least 512 mb, and it slows me down.
