I think there were 5 of us using RISC OS for browsing last time I checked :-)

On 'Threaded' Firefox for RISC OS build released to test:

I've downloaded the threaded version and am using it presently. Not much to report so far (it's early days but it certainly seems responsive) but this evidence of Peter's continued development effort is very welcome.

On Firefox port updated to release number eight:

Hairy: facebook works ok on FF here. Like jess I think your installation may be faulty. You could try renaming Boot.Choices.Mozilla to old-mozilla and restarting FF. You'll lose bookmarks, cookies etc but that may get rid of the problem.

On Firefox port updated to release number eight:

Jess: I'm trying out Firefox with javascript disabled and I find it much more responsive than before (not quite as nimble as NetSurf but a lot closer) on this Iyonix. When I need JS, MENU-Edit-Preferences-Content allows me to select it quickly (I have this window icon permanently minimised on screen to save time). Clicking on the 'Refresh' icon then reloads the page with JS operational. So you end up with a browser that is almost as convenient as NetSurf for general browsing with the option of javascript when required.

On Firefox port updated to release number eight:

Hairy: clicking on your link kills my copy of FF2.0.0.21 during page opening, whether or not javascript is enabled; I can't get as far as text entry. By contrast (and OT), NetSurf 3.0r9445 not only opens the link, but seems to allow text entry (at least I was able to start the sign-in process by entering my email address). Ho hum...
