I did use I.E. for about one half hour, the speed that I could read posts, type posts, go home, move around the forum fast!!!! But I typed a lengthy post, attached some pictures and attempted to post it, lost that post, annoyed more than you could ever believe. Went back to Firefox. Never had issues with losing stuff yet with Firefox.
So, yes, I am still experiencing the lag. It is annoying. I don't think it is the internet provider at all. I think it is Firefox.
The issues that I have had were with the timeout gateway with I.E., according to their report problems site, there was an issue with users all over the world and ImageShack with these error messages. They were going to create a "bandaid" they called it to repair it. I had switched to Firefox, loved it and when I tried I.E. again (that couple of days ago), there were not gateway timeout messages, they must have "bandaided" their problem. But losing that post made me lose my trust with I.E. Probably won't use that browser again.
So. I am going to do what you say, Clegs, try to uninstall Mozilla and download it again. But that is another day, for now I'll just bear with the pain of slowness, hee, hee. Have a great and wonderful day, Cindi
