    Default need help

    I've got a problem with my firefox.
    lately, I can't browse through the internet as usual,at first I thought it was a problem with my internet provider but after waiting and retry it for a few times,finally I can DL a video with max speed(45kbps).
    in short,I couldn't browse through the internet freely and easily but (with some luck and patience)I can download with max speed my ISP gave me.
    can somebody help me?

    I've been having the same problem with firefox lately. All I did was download a new browser (like Opera or something).

    I don't have such problems, but maybe you have some speed using add-ons (I highly reccomend to not use all those weather add-ons unless you really need them).

    Or maybe you don't have some - Fasterfox, NoScript and Adblock speed up web browsing (the latter two are very efficient popups blockers, never again loading some stupid flash animations).

    Also - if your Vista user (like me, unfortunately), restrain from using too many gadgets which connect to internet.

    I'm still using XP SP2.I don't know much about it but it's so God damn annoying.
    Add ons I used:tab scope, mega upload,extended status bar but no speed up web browsing.
    I've already re-install firefox with 2.0.0.11 but still nothing change.
    oh and what browser is good in your opinion:maxthon or opera?

    Maxthon is just a shell that's placed over IE, so... if you want to be part of the problem in web standards and go down that road, be my guest (I had a web development class and my hatred for IE went up about 6 notches... sorry). Opera is supposed to be really good.

    Check your processing status too. You can have all the speed in the world, but it doesn't mean shit if firefox doesn't have the threads in your processor to make it appear on the screen.

    But this kinda sounds like a firewall fucking with you or something along those lines. Check your software firewall, then check out the modem and see if that has a firewall or NAT built in (most do now). If so, you might have to forward some ports (especially for IRC). Go to the IRC/BT sub-forum and read up on that.
