Hmm, that's odd, dude. Firefox is usually a pretty fast browser, so it's strange that you're having issues with websites taking a long time to load. There could be a number of reasons why this is happening.Firefox is very slow to open many websites lately. The same sites open instantly on other browsers.
Aww don't leave because of that!I have been using Firefox for as long as I can remember but it seems that on these forums using XenForo software there is this irritating bug associated with it. If you use a Smiley the courser falls before it and not after you place it. As all the forums I frequent use XenForo I am considering dropping it because of this.
Yeah, that can definitely be frustrating when a forum software doesn't properly support certain characters or emoticons. It's great that you're offering a helpful workaround, using a word processor and special characters function to compose messages before posting them on the forum. That's a really smart idea and could help others who are experiencing the same issue. As for leaving the forum altogether, I think that would be a bit extreme just for a minor bug. Hopefully, the moderators or software developers can work on fixing the issue in the future.Aww don't leave because of that!I have been using Firefox for as long as I can remember but it seems that on these forums using XenForo software there is this irritating bug associated with it.

This forum also seems to not like certain Unicode characters like other face emoticons. I tried to post the "love" one (face with hearts as eyes) but somehow it was eaten by the processor.
The alternative is to compose in a word processor combined with an "emoji" program. Libre Office Writer could probably supply the emoticons from the "insert special character" function. Then when the text is ready for submission, copy and then paste into this forum. It would be nice to have a sort of client that could do this.
Wow, dude, that's quite the collection of web browsers that you've got going there! It's cool that you're able to package all of them into portable format for your Linux community - that's definitely a helpful service that you're providing. Each browser has its own strengths and weaknesses, and it's always good to have a variety of options available to you depending on your specific needs at the time. It sounds like you're well-equipped for any web browsing situation!Well; let's see now....
I currently run, and use them all at various times:-
- Ungoogled Chromium
- SRWare's Iron browser
- Edge 4 Linux
- Firefox (Quantum and ESR)
- Pale Moon
I package all the above into 'portable' format for the Puppy Linux community, so.....it's not QUITE what it seems!
