    It may be a coincidence,but,CHROME seems to work better than MOZILLA or SAFARI on my laptop when using BARNACLE.Haven't tried IE in a looooooooooong time,not sure about that one.

    I'm pretty sure INTRDRGN meant CHROME is available for FREE to install on your desktop/laptop.
    Even if this is a bit off topic,I'd highly suggest trying out CHROME anyway.Once you use it for a while,I think you'll find yourself using it more than MOZILLA & definitely more than IE.

    +1.. IE is just a security hazard.. I was a diehard MOZILLA fan for YEARS but find myself using chrome more and more lately.. With FF 7 I keep having numerous websites stall out randomly..

    You have no patience for Mozilla, that's the thing, if your PC is very low end, then Chrome would help, except Mozilla's able to use plugins and addons as well as extensions much better and easier to use and implant.

    As for the phone, might be because your connection isn't strong enough.

    Regardless, this isn't a problem related to a browser, its your connection.

    If this is for PC, we're completely off topic in thread sections. Mozilla CAN'T run on the Ascend.

    Now if its on your PC, that's a different story. Everything up to date, Java, Flash, etc? Sites won't cmoe up if its outdated, and then, is the Cache/Cookies cleared?

    Tried re-installing/gooling the problem on your phone? Pretty sure its not just going to 'die', just needs to be fixed.
