    Not really. There are some tweaking guides available if you would like. I prefer Opera though as it is much faster and has some feutures i really like.

    One of the things I should hace mentioned is I would like to run both at the same time(IE and Firefox) is it bossable, and if so is there anything I need to do to make it work that way?

    You can have both running simultaneously with no problem (ok, so theres additional memory usage but dont most people multitask now anyway?). I still have to use IE for some sites that dont support mozilla yet so I'm often running both browsers side-by-side.

    i am running Firefox as we speak but I find it a tad slower than IE and others, but like stated in other posts, it dosent have a whole lot of viruses compared to IE.

    It is a little slower, but you save all the trouble that IE gives you, with its gamut of weaknesses and hacker exploits. Plus with mozilla i can now block those offensive\annoying banner ads by automatically blocking images from entire domains

    It's slower loading, but it loads pages much faster. I've done comparisons several times and Mozilla wins without exception.
