Firefox reviews on this website are incongruous.

Yesterday it was 'do not touch it with a barge-pole. Today it's 4 stars. FE - can you explain this dichotomy?

Firefox is a good system for XP, however some websites do not open correctly, I do not know about using Firefox on Windows 7 , as it may have a different set of problems. Terry

Terry - I am using ff 3.5 on my laptop as IE7 and IE8 do not work..I am not knocking it . But the bi-polar reviews given on this website are a bit disconcerting.

I take it this is what you mean.

But I have only seen good reviews for F6 and F5 and F4 so maybe I got the wrong page.

Mind you I have not read through it as Brumas is calling.

"IE7 and IE8 do not work"

A very sweeping statement. Millions of people would disagree.

If you've got XP then IE8 works well as you haven't got the option of going to IE9.

The poor review of firefox appeared yesterday. I can not give you a link to it.I don't make these things up.

"FE - can you explain this dichotomy?"

Not really, because I haven't the faintest idea what you're talking about.

I suggest that you go into the reviews section, select 'software' then 'Internet/online' and run a search for 'Firefox' - you'll see a list of all the reviews we've published, going back to 2006. Not one of them says 'Do not touch it with a bargepole'.

I will apologise to everyone.This has been a learning curve for me.

Stay of that Buckfast and you should be Ok.

  Aitchbee 07:54 20 Aug 2011 I knew I had seen it somewhere. It appeared on the News part of this website on the 18th of this month.
