I want to download Firefox 3.6 onto Windows XP Sp3. I also have IE8 and Google Chrome installed. Do I need to keep the other two browsers after downloading Firefox 3.6?

My OS is Windows XP Sp3. IE is OEM. I downloaded Google's Chrome recently. I upgraded IE8 to IE9; had nothing but problems. Having to constantly install Security Updates, etc. So, I downloaded Google's Chrome 9; which I have had No problems with it. I had used Firefox with Facebook and liked it's functions. Now, I updated my Yahoo! email which recommends Firefox 3.6 for optimization of Yahoo! I want FIREFOX 3.6 to be my PRIMARY and ONLY browser. Can I safely uninstall Internet Explorer 9 and Google's Chrome 9 from my Windows XP Sp3?

It is highly advisable not to uninstall IE as described in this article. You can uninstall Google Chrome if you wish to do so.

To make Firefox your default browser, see the instructions in this article.

TY dynamite for your time and assistance on this matter. I had exhausted my re-sources trying to find the answer(s). I knew I could uninstall Google Chrome, but was not to sure about Internet Explorer. I did as you suggested and just unin- stalled Google's Chrome and left IE alone. I have made Firefox 3.6 my Primary browser now. I am very happy. TY again. Have a great day!
