    Win XP SP3 plus Mozilla Firefox duly updated in use.

    For about two months, due to very slow access to Internet, I hammered my ISP's technical help people with complaints.

    They changed my modem twice, the last one with wi fi included.

    This morning, after seeing a message of a timeout because my browser failed to issue a certain request in time, I considered that Mozilla Firefox could be questioned.

    Long story short: Chrome installed in two of my computers and everything seems to go very well. MF uninstalled unceremoniously.

    In my three machines lately, MF was taking long time to start, using lot of RAM, MUCH more than in the past. I even went to the initial default settings but no joy.

    This makes me think about Firefox causing some recent delays getting to AAC.
    However, a new version installed today
    We'll see...

    I occasionally have trouble with Firefox. I have been using Chrome for awhile now.

    I use firefox on machines with not much processing power because my experiance is that if you have less than a 2GHz machine the chrome will lag. Also, chrome is very memory intensive as compared to firefox (for me) so I use firefox on low end machines. Right now im using a 6GB RAM laptop with firefox....because the processor is 1.8GHz and chrome just takes for ever to load :/
