Alright, yesterday I was prompted to install the new firefox update or I would not let me continue using firefox. So, I installed the firefox update closed and reopened firefox and used it normally. Then, before I went to bed I had shutdown my computer. Now, today I wake up and start using firefox but all of a sudden I am prompted with a security certificate error. It happens with MSN, Yahoo, ect. Not only does it do that but it changes the look of the website into a basic html format with to pictures, graphic, or anything related to that matter. The only thing it will show are links or image boxes without the image being loaded. This only happens to certain websites. Things like codecall or other forums are fine.. So, what started all this madness? Apparently, firefox wanted to "enhance" there security settings by allowing people to choose what sites they wanted to load.. By doing that the totally eliminating any access to sites until the users adds the exception. So, now ever time I visit some web pages that does not have a preloaded security certificate I am prompted by firefox to add one. This may not seem like a big of deal to some people, but for me I think it is total BS to have to add an exception to every single website you visit. It is crazy!

From what I am reading on the Fire Fox web page, One of the moderators made a news post about the security settings and the complaints. Fire Fox said that they are going to make a new update to try and fix this issue.. lol personally I think they should not have made the update in the first place but oh well.

Opera stinks. The addons are horrible little floating Java widgets that don't even dock.

I actually installed Chrome today... it looks promising, but I don't know if I'll use it regularly.

Why not just move on to IE? I hear it's far better than FF. :)
