OK I downloaded and installed firefox. Up to now I am impressed, especially with the memory use which is about a quarter of what IE was using. Also firefox only has one process running for ALL open tabs whereas IE had a seperate process running for each tab.
One problem though if anyone knows how to fix it. I use a lot of forums and am constantly using the back button to switch between threads and forums. IE used to refresh the page when the back button was pressed so that I could instantly see new posts and threads. However firefox does not do this and I am having to manually refresh the page each time.
Is there a setting to fix this please. (still finding my way around the program.)
