I have been trying to maneuver around face book for a couple of weeks. It is very slow. slow to the point I just back out.

Someone told me I should download Firefox\Mazilla. I now have Internet Explorer as my browser.
Norton Security as my virus protector. How would downloading Firefox affect my computer as it is now. ( works fine except facebook)
If it is a good idea, how to do it? How would it affect IE?

Thanks

Most likely as facebook adds javascipts almost every day. By using Firefox and it;]'s no script add on you can by pass this.

For ease of finding here is the link for the NoScript add on for Firefox once it's downloaded. http://noscript.net/

It is an add-on that will block any Javascript or Flash object without prior approval from you. This way, it blocks tracking sites such at Google-syndication and yahooapis and will also block ad's that come along. What the previous user was suggesting was that you should install this, and approve ONLY facebook and facebook's relating sites onto the approved Javascript's.
Who said I couldn't have everything?
