Never one to be accused as being slow, I've just downloaded and started to use Slimbrowser. Now I've got to learn what all the icons across the top mean. Why would I want a proxy or to "clean all trace", or even have some hidden sites??

Still it's much quicker than IE7.

I used Slimbrowser for a long time Jeff without problems but for some reason it started playing up so I have gone on to Firefox. I have to say though that Slimbrowser does have some very good points about it and is worth playing with.

Copying pictures from Photobucket using IE8 is easy;  select code by making it go dark, right click - Copy, go to forum &  right click - Paste & all is done even with IMG info .

Now to try this under Firefox.

OK, now in Firefox, make the picrure code dark, right click - Copy, then paste  while it places the IMG code info, it is not the picture selected but the previous copied picture but if I selected with mouse, all data, then CRTL C - it gives the correct picture



one of those PC things for sure

Martin, if I do as you did
I clicked on the "IMG code". A popup said "Copied". I then pasted it in here:
 I do not get that image but the previous copied info from the clipbaord which would no doubt not be relevant.
For me to get that picture, I select all the URL data, CTRL C then  paste in the forum
or use Copy Image location
http://s270.photobucket.com/albums/jj92/solgwr/th_station2a.jpg      IMG to be added as you mention

There must be something slightly amiss that the "Copied"  popup does not work for me -
I notice that the auto spellimg is not wurking az well  - I will haf to look into it.

Ron at Photobucket are you linking from the page with the thumbnails or from the actual photo once it has been opened?
With Firefox I used to be able to click the img code on the thumbnails page and it would instanly say "copied". It doesn't do that these days unless you've opened the image itself. A tad irritating but it just means you then have to right click then "copy".

Martin, thanks for that video.
Mike, I was using the thumbnail  & the "copied"
now tried it from the opened picture  = Copy Image location
http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj92/solgwr/Hidden1.jpg?t=1246409682  have to add IMG code


Now tried Martin's method of selecting the photo, right Click  copy & paste OK

Now just to get the spell checker to work.- ( which it did before)

OK for the Firefox experts. IE8 allows me to press End & this takes me to the bottom of the page & Home back to the top.
Firefox Help also says the same thing but it doesn't unless I use CTRL with End or Home.
So what do you do please?

Just to add some more info I was told last night by an IT person about browsers.

Firefox runs second to him after IE8 mainly as Firefox is more memory hungry & slightly slower. Possibly not that noticeable for home users.

He did mention all the others like Google Chrome, Safari, etc and said that they all have good & bad points

E-mail, Mozilla's Thunderbird is better than Microsofts Outlook Express & Outlook in that all  e-mails are separate files so if one gets a glitch, that is the only file affected but with the two Microsoft products, all the retained e-mail is in one file so a glitch that comes in from outside can affected the entire file & it is has been known to completely corrupt all info.

It was mentioned that if the e-mail system uses POP, that is the mail is downloaded from the ISP & then deleted from the ISP but if using IMAP, then a copy is sent to your PC allowing the original to be accessed later if required in the ISP mail area. The downside of IMAP is that your ISP has a e-mail limit & the user has to regularly clean that out to allow more to come in - that is easily forgotten  so POP remains my choice.

What did he say about Safari, Ron? I now use that browser on two Macs, and even one PC, and am very happy with its performance. I never use it to access the Forum though as it doesn't allow me to upload images to the Gallery (or paste them on the threads.)

Which means, as I'm on my MacBook right now, I cannot contribute to the weekly photo poll :twisted::twisted::twisted:

Tim, he was aware of it but as the firm he is involved with is all PC, he has no interest or knowledge about it.

I thought Rick (Gwiwer) uses a MAC & posts OK!!

Help is HERE.

If that doesn't do the trick then PM me and we'll see what else can be done. I have no problems other than the fact that the process is a bit fussier in loading images to the gallery and in using the gallery in posts. And I use Safari on an iMac.

An old thread but considering the problem I found over the last day or so when Bob posted a clock into his posts, my scrolling speed using IE8 went cactus - NBG & Firefox was recommended which I also have & the problem went.
Firefox I have is V3.6.16 but there is V4 out. Anyone use it? Any problems?

I've been using Firefox V4 for several days now. I think it is a bit quicker than the older versions and certainly seems stable enough.

I've used Firefox as my regular browser for a long time now. I have never had any problems with it.

I also apparently use Firefox 4.  It insisted I upgraded  a couple of days ago.  No problems so far - it's virtually the only browser I use.
