I can't find a Taskbar on Firefox. All I've got is an orange box top left with a drop down menu but nowhere does it mention a task bar etc. When I click on the FF icon it takes me to Google. I give up. Sad

The task bar is the Windows application bar which should be across the bottom of your window or left or right depending where you decided to have it display

After being told to upgrade to IE 8 so I can see the new dropdowns and having done so, I can no longer open Epz on my main computer (I'm now on a laptop) or get to my e-mails.....not happy. Can I undo the upgrade? I would rather do that than have the worse problems that I have now Sad

Epz opens on my gallery, but endless messages repeat bottom left and when I scroll or try to change the page it closes down the internet connection. Talktalk webmail.

Quote:My firefox is dreadful at the moment - hangs and crashes. Most of the time it's a memory leak. To check that right click on your taskbar and select Show Task Manager - click on Processes and look for Firefox and check the Memory use. If it's in 500k and above I'd suggest closing (End Process) and reopening. I deleted some of the add ons but it's still sluggish. I have a feeling it's to do with Flash because that crashes regularly. I understood they'd fixed the recent issues but I think it may still be buggy.

Try going to Tools, Compatibility View Settings, remove any sites listed, and uncheck all three boxes at the bottom.

There is no compatibility view settings shown in Tools Chris, at least not in mine.

Oh right, got it. Shows 96,436 memory use. Don't know if that's good or bad.

Firefox has been naff on here since the last upgrade; version 13, I think it was.

I'm using Chrome now and although Epz.'s still slower than everything else, as it always has been, I'm not having any problems.

That's fine and should be ok...unless you have a small amount of memory on your PC. Have a look after you've been running it for a few hours and see if it's risen. As I say mine shoots up to 500,000 and occasionally way beyond.
