    Are you trying to get Java working with your browser, or with a specific app?

    First, make sure that real Sun Java is your preferred Java client. If you have a post-antitrust version of Windows, you can select your Java platform: Start --> Set Program Access and Defaults --> Choose a default virtual machine for Java, then select Sun Microsystems Java. Alternately you could just use a *better* browser such as Firefox or Netscape, which have absolutely no issues with Java.

    Firefox is based on the Mozilla engine but it's faster (much faster), better-looking, more customizable, and easier to use. There's no reason for a home user to use Mozilla over Firefox unless you are using Mozilla Composer to build HTML.

    No problem. I'd rather use standard Mozilla over IE any day. But Mozilla Firefox is a clean, sleek little build of Mozilla that includes all the features you want with none of the ones you don't, so it's not bloated. If you feel you need some feature that Firefox doesn't have, you can use a plugin module that installs with one click! Mozilla Firefox is an IE killer, baby. :)

    Doesn't sound like a Firefox problem, sounds like either a problem with your connection settings or maybe just a downed site. Are you using a proxy or MS ICS?
