I have had my computer for about 8 years. It's a Gateway 550R with Windows XP. I use a DSL modem. Everytime I download Firefox, it slows down my pc so bad that I wonder is using FireFox worth it. It makes me wait about 1 minute before it finishes loading a site. Whenever I'm surfing, I have to wait another minute if I click to a different page on the same site. Heck, it even takes a minute to bring up the Big G search engine when I'm ready to do a regular search. If I delete Firefox off my pc, my pc will be just as fast as when I first bought it. I wonder is FF really neccessary for setting up some bh methods. Or do you guys think that I should just buy a newer PC? Please let me know what you all think?
