Browser fields freez?


I used to use Mozilla as my default browser. I had a very anoying problem, sometimes i just suddenly couldnt write in the URL field or in any other field on a webpage (only the fields freez). I have now changed browser to Opera and havnt had the same problem that often but it does happen that the fields freez in Opera too from time to time?

Any idea why this happens?

Use Firefox

I suggest you use the new Mozilla Firefox 0.8 since it is SO much smaller and overall it is much better. Unless you really need things like Java Applets (which, face it, you probably don't), this is ideal for 99% of users (IMNSHO!). If you really need a mail client as well, use Sylpheed, because that rocks as well, even if it is slightly ugly without a snazzy GTK engine.
I had the same problem, plus my computer's really slow, so I fould these PERFECT.
