thats a damn shame, definitely not trying it til it does as thats the main addon l use to keep my stuff backed up.. even have it set to backup my DVD database weekly so if it doesnt work it means l have to do it manually.. l tend to forget lol.

I understand timeless, but I've gotta say so far I haven't seen a better firefox perform as well as this one it loads fast it's smooth and the gui is quite something as well. I'm quite happy with it...

slow DNS servers can lead to slow/hanging browsers as they browser is waiting for the DNS to respond.

Thanks, Konceptz804. :)

I must say, however, when the DNS servers are down or slow on my Internet connection, the browser itself doesn't hang. I just can't navigate to any web pages or doing so is like being on a dial-up modem.
