    ...they took FireFox off of our machines. Now I'm stuck using IE.

    Given IE's reputation for security, I am wondering what they are smoking

    I dunno. I don't dare download and install FF though. Everytime someone downloads something, nasty emails start flying from IT.

    Resistance is futile, you will be assimilated.
    You will serve the collective.

    I like Firefox, but the latest version does NOT support some of my programs, previous one do. I also use SEAMONKEY, the top of the line browser suite, I guess, that Mozilla has. It IS faster. The update frequency of SeaMonkey for video and all around operation is 2X faster than Firefox 3.5.8 that I have now, the streaming of audio/video is so fast anyway that unless one is really checking, one wouldn't notice.

    IE, I will NOT USE, unless the site I need or programs demands it. Did you ask them why? But if the PC's are theirs, they can do anything they want to 'protect' themselves against, whatever......:lol:

    They said that they are ending support for FF, and going strictly IE.

    Whatever though, I still think they are dumb.

    Download FF at home on your personal machine to a memory stick.

    Take memory stick to work, and upload from memory stick.

    IT won't sniff you out (for a while, anyway, they have software that automaticall sniffs machines on the network for illegal programs and snuffs 'em out).
