I have both Opera and Firefox/Thunderbird on my computer, and use both from time to time, but like you, I do prefer Ff.

Weekly updates are great.

I tried Opera, but liked the Firefox interface (had been using it for a good year or so) and didn't really spend a lot of time on it.

They are both great browsers! I just wish someone would combine them! :thumbsup:

I love the Opera rendering and the security of both, and the extensions of Firefox. Now only if they would combine all of these great features.

Awhile back I downloaded Firefox, but I am a NOVICE. How can I learn to use Firefox. Even though I chose Firefox to be my default browser, Internet Explorer keeps running the show.

Thanks

In the firefox browser, click on tools/ click on options/ select the General tab/ check the box next to make Firefox default browser.

The first place to learn about Ff and how to use it is the HELP section, which is pretty easy to read and straightforward. In addition, you can browse the Ff support page (which has links to all sorts of information and to the FF support forum). There is also a lot of threads here at BC about Firefox.
