About a year ago, I switched to the Firefox browser, which I really like. Some of its advantages have now finally been copied by the new IE, but the latter's layout seems awful to me, and so I still much prefer Firefox.
But there are a couple of drawbacks to Firefox. The biggest one involved opening another window or tab with the same web page. So if one were viewing the Right Coast, under IE, you could simply open a new window and it would open with the Right Coast. Under Firefox, if you told it to open a new window or tab, you would either get your home page or a blank screen. Definitely inconvenient.
But Firefox has all kinds of ad ons, called extensions. They are not always easy to find. I looked for one for quite a while to fix this problem, but only discovered it recently. It works great, though. So if you use Firefox, use this add on to make it even better.
