go download some add-ons & get a virus!

internet explorer is faster, and safer.

edit:

and it requires no additional add ons to be safer & faster than any other browser.

I ditched IE for Firefox, pics load up faster; thanks for the add-ons. I will get those on tonight, when i get home from work. Slw day at the airport with all the cancelled flights due to the ash cloud over Europe.

go to the URL about:config for a wealth of configuration options. But tread lightly; look 'em up before changing anything.

If you have only just switched, try Google Chrome. Much faster than Firefox for me. It is also less demanding of your processor time.

I haven't needed or even tried any other extensions. Windows needs more front end protection than Linux does.

linkification lets you click on cold links.

coolpreviews lets you pop up a temp window to look at pics. On google images you can roll over the picture and a new widow pops up with a full size version without clicking on it.

Pdf download

stop autoplay new windows don't start videos automatically.

Everyone else has already covered what you need for Firefox.

It's pretty straightforward with that stuff.

Now if you'll excuse me, I haven't stopped laughing about the guy who thinks IE is better than Firefox.

And Google Chrome is also 100% spyware for Google. Enjoy.

You guys missed one key privacy/safety add-on for FF.

"BetterPrivacy" - it delete Flash cookies.

You forgot "true" and "epic". Also "horribly embarrassing" and "pathetic". You'd think billions of dollars could produce something worth using for free.
