Webpages load slowly in Firefox (about 5 minutes or longer for most pages) but load instantly in Internet Explorer. This has been happening for the last few upgrades, but years ago never used to be a problem. What could it be?

I don't think it's every webpage, but most of them, and all pages open instantly in Internet Explorer but Firefox takes minutes to open a page and just sits there with a … (read more)

I am having to run v3.5.10 because even now with latest 3.6 that version - every 30 seconds or so I hear a process open and then close. Can't track it down even in task manager - too brief but it's insistent! So stuck having to use 3.5

I have to use V3.5.10 despite wanting to run 3.6 (just updated to 3.6.6 too). However when I run 3.6 I hear thru my sounds set up a process open briefly and then close every 30 seconds or so - it's very regular and insistent and I'd like to know what it is and why. It's too brief to spot in Task manager processes listing. This did happen once under 3.5 I seem to recall but was cured when it upgraded.

Firefox will not print to my HP PSC750 inkjet printer but prints with no problem to the monochrome Brother HL-5240. Other browsers print to both printers with no problem

Firefox will not print to my HP PSC750 inkjet printer but prints with no problem to the monochrome Brother HL-5240. Other browsers print to both printers with no problem. I must print out filled-in webforms and must use the inkjet printer for that. However, Firefox presents me with a dialog box that says "An unknown error has occurred while printing", even when nothing at all has even started to print out.

When I next try to print the same screen content to the monochrome laser printer, the entire contents of the form showing on the web page will print out as a single block of text - all run together and utterly unintelligible.

How can I make Firefox print normally and legibly to my HP inkjet printer, the same as other browsers?

I used to be able to edit web pages in Netscape and upload them via WS_FTPLE but latest version doesn't seem to be able to. Internet says Firefox (which we've been using for quite some time) is supposed to be "equivalent/better" than Netscape so looked for, and can't find, where and how to edit web pages so I can upload them via WS_FTPLE. Please could you advise if this is possible and where/how to do it? Many thanks.

I installed "The Sims 3 High-End Loft Stuff" add-on onto my computer. I already had Sims 3. After the add-on game installed correctly, I tried to start up the game by clicking the desktop icon. It pops up with a little window saying exactly this: "Active X controls are required to use this product. Please enable Active X controls in your Internet Explorer security settings and restart the application." Then once I ex out of that, another little window pops up reading: "JavaScript is required to use this product. Please enable javascript in your Internet Exlporer security settings and restart the application." Then, the Sims 3 game launcher (medium, not full screen) window pops up and I can't click anything cause it says my Sims 3 base game isn't compatible with the add-on sims 3 game.

== I tried to start up Sims3 after installing an add-on game, which needs the Active X enabled somehow (or else the game doesn't start).
