    Hi, I have a Dell inspirion 1525. I am noticing for the last couple months that Yahoo email is very slow and unresponsive at times. Otherwise other links and websites seem fine. I am wondering is it Yahoo email or something else that I can check?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Ok thanks, glad its not just me. I might try FIrefox again. Just to be on the safe side can you or anyone here provide me the correct link to download firefox?

    Also do you feel it will run ok on this older Dell Inspirion 1525? I have 2.00 GB ram and 32 bit.

    Thanks again...

    They are very slow and I use MailWasher to check my email accounts and it takes a second or two to check all accounts but when Yahoo has trouble it takes up to 60 seconds and I get a fail. Bad user name or password error.
    So I think they are over loaded because I can login but it's slow or fails more now.
