Is that a reason to not use something far better???

Anyway, if you go and find the default stylesheet, you can edit it to change how the input fields are rendered Tongue

Also, a more annoying thing...IE loads things differently, so that when you are reading a page, images don't load in the middle of it all, hence pushing down the text, and readjusting the page so that you have to find your place again.
For instance, make a page with some text, then a large (in size AND in height) image, more text, another image, and repeat that a few times. Put it on a slow server (one that won't load immediately  :roll: ), and load the page. Scroll down to the second last bit of text. See? The image is loaded later, and pushes down the text. More annoying than it sounds. :wink:
But I agree that Mozilla is far superior quality-wise.

That happens in all browsers, when a width and height attribute for an image is not specified. That's really what width and height are for - so the browser knows how much space to reserve so text doesn't jump around.

Try looking for the mozilla stylesheet and changing it Smiley

Where IS the stylesheet? There's a bunch in the Mozilla folder's subfolders.
EDIT: Btw, go to http://ultimateqb.com/links.html in Mozilla, and then IE. The latter doesn't push the page around so much (it does a bit, but not as nuch as Mzl).

So not using IE makes you more leet or something?

I am using IE and having 0 (zero) problems.

Why I use it? Because I click on the icon and it pops up instantly. Mozilla, Netscape, Opera... take a bit to run.

Windows can be crap and stuff, but 90% of people blame Windows for their own faults Tongue

You can load mozilla in so it starts quicker too, just like with the other browsers. Just at the moment you're loading IE in Wink

I use mozilla because it's support for web standards is very important for me. And the popup killing. And the tabbed browsing (but I'm told this can be done with IE). But mainly because of the standards, because it crashes less for me and because it's so easy to extend.

Nah, its fine to use the browser you like, but I feel very annoyed when people seem to say that using Windows XP and IE is noob's stuff. I'm not pointing to you, I just wanted to know Smiley I know many people at college who feel "more 'leet" just 'cause they replaced the shell or 'cause they use Netscape instead of IE, Trillian instead of MSN Messenger and Edonkey instead of Emule...  :rotfl:
