I'm not using any extensions.  Because of slowness on dapper, with
ff-1.5, I had been using script block to block most javascript.  But,
I had heard that ff-2 had a newer javascript so have been trying
without any extensions.  I only have flash-7, sun-java-1.5, realplayer
as plugins.  But, is it the sun java or the javascript that's the
problem?  I thought it's the javascript.

Well, maybe it's time to try script block on ff-2.
