what the heck is wrong with my internet?

Over the last few days I have noticed that my computer has stoped saving pages and temporary internet files and I cant figure out why. For example, when ever I enter elysiun I have to type in my username a pass, eventhough after I always select rember my U&P. And I also have to wait for my popular pages to load every time. If anyone could help me out I would appreciate it. :stuck_out_tongue:

Someone probably changed your settings. It’s all configurable in Tools/Internet Options.

Use Firefox. Internet Explorer has a lot of security problems and I’ve actually found that Firefox runs faster.

Do you and your computer a favor, download it now!

I second mr_rob’s suggestion. I love Firefox!
Faster, more secure, tabbed browsing, no popups, nice download manager and sooo customizable! You can even make it block all banner ads, use mouse gestures, automatically backup your bookmarks and lots of other cool stuff. Check out all the extensions that are available.
Oh and it also stores your passwords so you can log on to all your favorite sites fast and easy without having to accept their cookies. Go get it!

I am eperimenting with MyIE2 at the moment. All the advantages of firefox (tabs, adblocking, popup blocking, skinning etc.) but a bit faster. At first I thought Firefox was faster than IE too, but I think it just seemed that way because firefox loads a page in 1 run, instead of showing it part-by-part.


You know about this right?

By default, Firefox doesn’t try to render a web page for 250 milliseconds, because it’s waiting for data. If you add the code below to your user.js file, Firefox immediately tries to render the page, even without complete data. The drawback is on slower machines where doing a “reflow” may actually cause the total page load time to be longer.

// This one makes a huge difference. Last value in milliseconds (default is 250)
user_pref(“nglayout.initialpaint.delay”, 0);

hmmmno didn’t know that. I still like MyIE though :slight_smile:


NM but thanks for the help anyway but I figured out what was wrong. Another person using this computer was using disk cleanup and Spybot, which was deleting my temporary internet files. :< I fixed that problem alright. lol. But thanks for the help anyway. :stuck_out_tongue:
