    I am no IE expert by any means. Is it fair to assume you are closing the window, and that is when you are losing the originating screen? If so, try using the "back" button. I think you can get into preferences and set it up so links open in new windows, that way the originating site does not get lost when you close the link.

    Then, downlaod Netscape 7.2. You probably wouldn't like N'sc 8.x, it is still buggy. melbo is our resident expert on firefox, he might be able to help with the security issues.

    I have almost Zero problems browsing here with FireFox
    Some sites look a little odd but everything but the vB Spell Checker works here for me.
