I see the state flags are now fixed, but I can no longer access the forum with Netscape, I'm having to use Internet Ecplorer. Is anyone else having this problem, or is it only me? I can get to the main page, but the pictures don't show, and when I clik on forums it just sets there and does nothing. all the other sites I go to are ok.

John - that is a strange one. I checked the support group and their are some problems with the upgrade, but they are related to the backend software (PHP)

I'm using Firefox right now to post this and it is working fine.

It could be related to a bad cookie --- computer kind -- you might try deleting the farmallcub cookie if you know where to look for it in netscape.

PS: anyone else having problems, please post here. Thanks!

I like most things about it, but still must use IE because it has problems with my VPN connection at work. If they or I can figure out those issues, I'd switch completely. Right now, I'm about 50/50.

It's free, so I'd say try it for anyone that does not want the security issues that IE opens with it's active-x.

Walter Mossberg the computer guy in the Wall Street Journal had a blurb on FireFox today and feels the same way you do Dennis. I guess that puts him in good company.

I have Foxfire installed. I pay to be a member of http://www.iatn.net/ and back last fall before service pack 2 for Internet Explorer they wanted us to change to Fox Fire are they would cut us off if we caused a virus etc. Fox Fire want open java in webpages made with Microsoft Front page for me. May be my problem and not there's I'm back on Internet Explorer now.

One of the reasons I use Netscape is the fact that most of the worm programs, etc. are written to take advantage of Outlook. Also most pop-ups don't work on Netscape, and the newer versions have a built in pop-up blocker that you have to allow a sites pop-up in before it will show.
