What programs can I delete from Control Panel if we have Microsoft Windows 7 and use a IBM compatible computer? I hear one should use Internet Explorer as backup only. True? Can we delete any programs from IE? We are trying to have more space and faster speed. Thanks!

Firefox will not allow me to click on more than one link in a sequence. After one click, I am forced to switch to another active application before returning to Firefox and clicking on another link. I have seen this problem posted by others, but I can't find an answer by Mozilla. Since this problem makes Firefox virtually unusable (version 3.6.8) I would hope that Mozilla would offer an answer ASAP. Until then, I'm stuck with Explorer.

I've tried doing the ie importing to firefox but it does not seem to be working. I've disabled every addon just to make sure that it wasnt just a conflict problem, but I still have the same problem. As i understand it, there should be an internet explorer folder under bookmarks, but it's not there and nothing else is being imported either. Any tips?

For years, the presentation by Ancestry.com has been static, but after the ver 3.6.8 update, the presentation is changed (larger - harder to use). When I check the same website using IE8, it looks just like it always looked. I "cleared my cache" per Firefox FAQ - but nothing changed. For years I have preferred Firefox, but I am going to switch back to IE8 to overcome the presentation problem.
