    Thanks for the update. I actually was having some problems with FF 9.2 and I didn't know what the heck was causing it. Occasionally when I would click on a bookmark, Firefox would just sit there. Even after I clean the whole computer with Xen, SpyBot, Adaware, etc, etc, nothing would happen. However, when I would try the same address on another browser and it would immediately go there.

    So your timing was perfect. Rather than trouble shoot the critter, I just uninstalled and downloaded 9.3. It zips along quickly with my dsl.

    Connection refused, try again later.
