I've been using Firefox for years, and am very pleased with it. Be sure to download it ONLY from its creator, The Mozilla Foundation
. Downloading from other sites guarantees having junk added on.
Put the cursor in the empty blue area at the top, right click and check Menu Bar and Bookmarks Toolbar. Your menu will now appear at the top.
Click "tools" then "options". In there, you can choose whether to make Firefox your default browser and how it opens. Go to "content" and set "block popup windows". Browse all the options pages to set things how you want them.
Click "bookmarks" then "show all bookmarks". The library opens. Click "import and backup" then "import data..." to import your bookmarks from internet explorer.
Disabling Shockwave Flash kills many of the forum-slowing video ads. Click "tools" then "add-ons". The add-on manager opens. Click "plugins" and set Shockwave Flash to "ask to activate". When there is a shockwave flash video uploaded by a forum user, it will ask if you want to enable it. Click it and select "now", and it will load just for that video.
