problem with mozilla firefox browser?
People acclaim Mozilla Firefox - this new browser, but I have found that it doesn't work with every website.
For example when I check movie listings on www.msn.com, the movies don't show up in order like they do in internet explorer. Instead, they are bunched up all together, like in a paragraph. And on other websites, there are similar problems.
Is this a format problem that can maybe be fixed???
So I was just wondering If anybody else is having this problem, and if this could possible be fixed.
Thanks for your help.

Not all pages work with all browsers and often there is no fix.
Yes, Firefox sometimes has problems displaying pages that were created for Explorer, however that is a small price to pay for the added stability and security it offers.
AND, when it crashes (and that is because of the way I often abuse it) it will restore the session back to what I was doing, even if I had many open tabs including forms in progress of being written, it doesn't even lose the text partially entered in the input boxes.
Having Firefox doesn't require you uninstall other browsers so if you ever end up on a page that requires IE then use IE.
here's the direct link to the best version of Firefox I know.

Different websites sometimes are optimized for a particular browser. Some sites designed for Netscape, for example, might look funny on IE but fine on FireFox. You can be sure MSN [MicroSoft Network] is optimized for MicroSoft Internet Explorer. But I wouldn't doubt older versions of IE [like 4.0 or 5.0] wouldn't display MSN very well, either.

distinctive web content on occasion are optimized for a undeniable browser. some web content designed for Netscape, as an occasion, could look humorous on IE yet nice on FireFox. you will possibly determine MSN [MicroSoft community] is optimized for MicroSoft information superhighway Explorer. yet i does no longer doubt older variations of IE [like 4.0 or 5.0] does no longer show MSN o.k., the two.

Think about it?
FireFox competes with what browser?
Who's website are you talking about?

you probably just need flash or java or something downloadable like that.
for some reason, sometimes the internet browsers don't share the add-ons that you downloaded. so you sometimes have to get them individually. you know what i mean?
hope it helps. >_<
