    Good to hear. FF has been my chosen browser for years. It's a little heavy on resources, but Chrome isn't much easier when you look at all of what it's using. Besides, no one is spying on me like with Chrome. Google weirds me out that way.

    Thanks Tammi for giving me the "push" to Firefox. I know that I am going to like it and so far it appears to be faster.

    You should be able to:
    Download Firefox - http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/fx/#desktop
    Install Firefox
    Start Firefox
    Let it import your favorites, etc
    Tell it yes you want it to be your default browser

    Extra Credit:
    Go to Tools - Add-Ons - Get Add-ons
    In the upper right corner, in "Search All Add-ons" - type Adblock Plus
    Choose Adblock Plus (current version is 2.3.2) and click "Install"
    Restart the browser (I think, it will prompt you if needed)

    Nothing gets lost.

    Ditto to Tammi's response. The only thing I had to do was re-establish my passwords to my favorite sites. As with any change there will be some differences but well worth it.

    Annoying pop up ads

    Please please please stops these pop up ads!!! I use and iPad and the quilting board site is the ONLY place they appear.i have the pop up blocker activated, but this site is the only one they come to. And worse yet, they seem to bounce around and the ULTA ad doesn't have an place to close it - you have to try to ignore it. I'm ready to cancel this board.

    Which part fouled up? It's usually a pretty straight forward process...
