Many sites requiring my password forces me to wait until their homepage completely loads before allowing me access. I'm still on dial-up so this can take a long time. I assume this is done to give their homepage ads additional viewing potential. Does anyone out there know of a work-around for this???

Not sure of the version, checking properties doesn't tell me. It was a free download version. No add-ons as I'm on dial-up and don't want to add anything that will slow things up

Open Firefox.
In the toolbar at the top, click Help.
Select About Mozilla Firefox.

That will tell you what version you are using.

Here is an add-on that may help: an ad-blocker. You can create a white-list so that those sites that you want or need ads display them, otherwise they are simply blocked and don't download speeding up the page loading time. You can find it here: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/10/

Hope this helps.
