Of course you are all correct, how silly of me not to like it.

No one said anything about you being silly for not liking Firefox. Just that no one else has encountered the same problems you claimed to have. Thus, we have to assume you are on a FUD campaign until you provide proof of your claimed problems.

Now ante up.

Unfortunately I found a bug in gecko 1.6, firefox's rendering engine, very depressing. Mozilla had finally gotten the overflow:auto to scroll on mouseover (duplicating the functionality of a frame or iframe, that is), that was finally done in 1.5, now it's broken again, that's a drag to say the least, it makes IE the only browser again to support that feature, which worked perfectly in gecko 1.5, firebird 0.7.
