Oh. My. WORD!

Y'all, I have been trying to get some things together for Ms. Boo's schooling that has required I go searching for clip art.

I almost threw my computer out the window when Internet Explorer closed itself for the 573rd time.

It even closed while I was in the middle of downloading Firefox.

I was undaunted. Firefox I wanted.

And Firefox I got.

Um, HELLO! What in the world have I been doing using Explorer all this time?

And now I am off to delete all shortcuts and uninstall all programs Explorer related.

Let me try again - My kids told me to get Mozilla Firefox. I did. When the Geek Squad came to my house I asked his opinion. He told me IE has more capabilities but is also more prone to viruses, etc. Mozilla has less capabilities but is safer to run. I keep both on mine depending on what I'm doing. All 3 of my kids use MF and are quite happy with it.

Did explorer remove Bev's first post???

I'm a Mozilla girl. That's only because my husband set it up that way. I would have no clue as to what works better! Glad you're all set up. When do you and Miss Lainee start?

I bet you have an easier time loading pictures now...for whatever reason, Blogger and IE don't seem to like each other when it comes to picture posting.

And, you started your post with the word "y'all."

I'm so proud. :-)

I tried Firefox...my ISPs "child protection" ( call it people protection) software wasn't compatible with it! Ugh. I did like it otherwise. Good luck!

I use both, but have a LOT of trouble with IE. I use Firefox for all my blogging.

Bev, I got tickled when I saw that all your kids use "MF" and are quite happy with it, LOL. ;-) Okay, I know I'm childish and sophomoric. :-)

I noticed that y'all, too. Good girl. Sarah clued me in to firefox. Like Bev I use both. I didn't know there was a connection between IE and blogger photo uploading issues. Poor blogger. I've been unjustly blaming it for all those little problems all this time!

My hubby told me that Firefox is better for blogging, but I still use IE cause I've been so busy reading blogs that I haven't taken the time to download it. Sad, huh?

I noticed the y'all, too. You've been hanging around BooMama, haven't you?

I can't believe you spent 4 days with Theresa and me and we didn't have you do it the minute you got home. LOVE IT!

I've been meaning to switch to Firefox for quite some time now. I get so annoyed when IE closes, and NO, I DON'T WANT TO SEND AN ERROR REPORT!! :-) Hope your school planning goes well.
