    I use IE 6.0.2800 at the moment. If I d/l and try Mozilla or Mozilla Firebird, will it upset stuff or will both work?

    you can run IE and Mozilla and Firebird all at the same time, and they wont conflict wtih each other

    You can run IE, Mozilla, Mozilla FireBird all together if you want, you can even run 2 copies of moz (stable/nightly) :D

    That is the cool think, Mozilla FireBird doesnt touch any settings, and doesnt use the registry (Clean deinstall :p)

    hides the damned conf files from you though (if you're new to it and not knowledgeable to where they are) which doesn't cause a problem, but when you remove an app it can be annoying to find bits left over.

    Hopefully that will be rectified once FB comes with an installer :)

    Uhm, their not hidden, they are put there where all standard windows programs also dump its ****, and windows apps leave their **** behind there as well. They dont remove it when its uninstalled.

    Just a note, when you use FireBird on Linux, it creates a .phoenix folder in your homedir, same sort of concept.

    I am using Firebird .7

    When I am downloading a file, is there someway that, as it is downloading, It d/l's directly to the specified folder, instead of into the "temp" folder first then, when complete, transfers over to the specified folder?
