    Win 8.1


    Hello everyone. I upgraded from XP to 8.0>8.1 a couple of weeks back and I still have mixed emotions. It's a very different look and feel and there are some things I like as well as quite a few things I don't like. The two main orientation issues are:
    1. I like the improved ease and speed of access. The rapid start-up is nice, as is the ease of switching between users.
    2. On the negative side is the architectural complexity that makes it more difficult to delve into the analysis of problems. Oh yes, I have already encountered problems. That's why I've joined this forum. I'll explain my current major issue in a separate thread.
    I had my first computer in 1976 (Tandy) and my first IBM compatible in 1981. I joined the data communications industry in 1981 and moved into the software industry in 1990. I'm not deeply technical but I have a reasonably good understanding of techy issues.
    Some areas leave me baffled and that's why I rely on people with more in-depth experience. So, I hope to find some assistance on this forum with at least one of those baffling mysteries - why Firefox has suddenly stopped displaying correctly for my second Win 8.1 user. If you are expert in that area, I hope to see you further down.

    Thanks for that correction!

    Sorry, Reddd! Perhaps I need to see my optometrist again!

    Thanks for the welcoming messages guys. Just one concern - as indicated above, I posted my problem issue as a thread entitled 'Firefox fails to display correctly for User2'. I received a couple of responses but the thread has now disappeared, although it can be found if I click on my name and 'View forum posts'. Can anyone tell me what has happened?
