:thumbsup: :flowers: Hi everybody,
OK, I'm tired of suffering in silence. My IE is driving me up a wall. It is hanging, the pages are sticking to each other. I am constantly having to end task on it. I was trying to get in the habit of using Mozilla but I accidentally exited out of it and now I've lost my Systray icon for it. I'm sure a reboot would bring it back. I just would like to know if there is a way to get it back without having to reboot all the time. When I try to call it up in all programs it won't appear. I'm at a loss here. Any one have ideas? Also, for the life of me I can't find where to make it my default browser. :trumpet: This IE is driving me Kooky. :inlove:

Mozilla is in a folder in the Programs directory named Mozilla.org; there you will find a Mozillla.exe Shortcut Icon that you can drag into your system tray. You can do a search for it.

Edit>Preferences>Navigator. There is a box if you click on the navigator line, top right, to change the default to Mozilla.

Here are two help pages for new Mozilla users:

Regards,
John

Hi there John, thanks for replying. I found the mozilla.exe and made a new shortcut to put on my desktop. That wouldn't work when I clicked on it either. So, I decided to reboot again. My systray icon came back and I have mozilla set for my default browser. I'll just be careful not to exit. Thank you John for the links. I'm sure I'll use them. :thumbsup:
