  • I found that Firebird worked fine for me with Win2K, printing worked okay too. It's a very nice browser isn't it? It looks like it eats more RAM on my system than Mozilla, but it does seem to run faster, and like you I think it's starting to get good enough to use as a default browser.

    You realize that that's a W2K bug or perhaps a bug with the printer driver and NOT a Firebird bug, right?
    • If it consitently works fine with IE and other programs and consistently causes a spontaneous reboot in Firebird, can you be so sure?
      • For practical purposes, yes, I think you're right to view it this way. But in absolute terms, if I understand you correctly, Windows spontaneously reboots when a non-priviledged program does something, which has to be an OS bug. (Where I include third party printer drivers in "OS")

        • Agreed. A non-priv'd program should NEVER be able to crash an OS. We've become so used to a situation where just any program can clobber anything with Windows that this is sometimes forgotten.
