withinternet explorer.

  I'm using FF as I've set webvisum to automatically open, and I'm captcha 
solving every day.  Other than that, ff works well for me really.  I don't 
think it's any faster than ie 7 though, and like you Carol I didn't really want 
to change either.  The only tiny issue is that when I log into my account (BT) 
Jaws doesn't read the password box, and the cursor doesn't drop into it either. 
 I just press down arrow once to overcome this.  No other issues as yet, though 
I was managing to play Youtube videos just fine through IE and now I can't 
through FF.  It says that either Javascript is disabled, (which it is not) or I 
need to update Flash, (which may be true).  Not sure what the truth is there.  
Might have to use IE to see what happens.

    Well, some say that there are problems with certain pages ... but I 
certainly ffind the page layout not so clear as with IE.

    It's true, I haven't used it a great deal but IE does all I want it to do 
and I didn't really want to change, so I suppose that's my preference.
