I had wanted to try Firefox for years, but it simply refuses to install. I contacted them at Mozilla / Firefox fora, but never had any replies. ( I use Thunderbird quite happily too !)
It seems Firefox either doesn’t like my Network or hates NOT being allowed to install on drive ” C” –All I have ever had over the years is ” Firefox has encountered an unexpected error and will close” so over the years I have tried ALL of the browsers ( as far as I know) and have had a lasting love affair with Net Captor, which, for me, is sooo fast and easy to use–easily scores 10 out of 10 for me.
Just my 2 cents but if Firefox won’t install then I can’t even try it out ( and follow your recommendation)!
Thanks for a very interesting newsletter too.
I know what you mean about drive C:. After years of trying to do all my program installations on other drives, I gave up and let programs install on C:.
I finally had to change my boot manager on my desktop — it could not handle a C: larger than 14.5 GB, so you know I hung on to that program for a long while. I keep my data on D: (or E:, F:, G:, H:, K:, L: and M: on that particular computer!), though.

Thank you, Microsoft, for teaching all those programmers that there is no drive but C:. It fits right up there with "Nobody needs more than 640K memory."
