No.

I run Firefox, but sometimes have to use IE to access some sites. Once they sort out who is the 'default browser' you have no problems.

Yes,

I should have specified, with win2kpro, and a broadband USB connection.

The internet connection makes no difference AFAIK. Not sure if win2000 handles any diff from XP though - which has no problems for multibrowser use.

You should have no problems at all.

I can confirm it's ok in Win98 as well - have run FireFox and IE at the same time with absolutely no issues.

You _may_ run into issues if you're using browsers that simply Skin on top of IE, for example NeoPlanet and MyIE perhaps. Then again they may run fine without conflict.

well,

Fire Fox and IE seem to be cohabitating alive, does anyone know if there is a turn on and off pictures function in fire fox like the one in IE.

In Win98 it was a known issue that you could have problems running IE and netscape simultaneously. In XP I've never experienced any conflict

There certainly is. You need to download this (http://update.mozilla.org/extensions/moreinfo.php?id=232&vid=636) extension. You may need to close Firefox down and then reopen it to activate the new Extension.

The beauty with Firefox is that you can customise what features you like personally by adding Extensions to Firefox. You might want to check out the other available extensions as well. You can find them all (over 100) here (http://update.mozilla.org/extensions/), or by going via Tools > Extensions > Get More Extensions.
