Firefox Saved My Blog

Yep, I've changed browsers and all is well.  So far.  Due to technical difficulties, blogging changed from a pleasure to a teeth gnashing pain.  First, I couldn't leave comments on a few blogs.  Then I couldn't leave comments on any blog.  Then I couldn't scroll down on blogs, and finally I couldn't read my own blog.  At all.  It was just blank.  ARG!

Both my brother Tom (Tom and Pat) and my friend Cyndi (Living a Dream)
suggested switching to Firefox, and they were right.  There's a few things I don't like about it, but at least I can blog again.  Thank you, Tom and Cyndi.

A very belated Thank You to Cyndi again, and to Our Beautiful Life for a blog award!

Liebster means “dearest” in German, and the award is intended to help up-and-coming blogs get the attention they deserve. Here are the rules:
1. Copy and paste the award on your blog.

2. Link back to the blogger who gave the award.

3. Pick five favorite blogs with less than 200 followers, and leave a comment on their blog to let them know they have received the award.

4. Hope that the five blogs chosen will keep spreading the love and pass it on to five more blogs

I love all the blogs, so I'm picking 5 of the lesser known gems.
My Brother Andrew  Janet writes her blog to honor her brother Andrew, and to raise funds for Motor Neuron Disease. 
Dream Valley Ranch  Sue has a huge heart.  She does everything possible to give her rescue dogs and horses a wonderful life.
A Collection of Madcap Escapades  A nice girl, a good horse (a Standardbred!  I love Standardbreds!), an adorable dog, young love, and lots of gorgeous photos.  
My Boston, My Friend  Another adorable dog.
Isobelle Golightly, The Beautiful Goat   Who can resist a blogging diva goat?
Just a Girl and  her Horse  I admire this girl's can-do attitude.  She has fun with her horses, whether she's jumping at the local playground, working on her dressage, or racing her Dad on his motorbike.

Ok, now I'm off to see if I really can leave comments!

Glad you are back in business. I have firefox and safari and both seem to be working now. A lot of people had problems.

Congrats on your award.

Wow! Thank you so much! I will pass along the love! Now I need to take Fred's ego down a notch...

I switched to Firefox a short time ago. So far I like it. Blogs load a lot faster. I was using IE9, not really having blogging issues, I just felt like a change. I had no idea how much speed I was missing.

Congrats and welcome back! I switched to Chrome (Google's browser) about a year ago and I love it. You'll get used to Firefox and forget most of the stuff you don't like about it. :)

Computers can be so frustrating especially if you are like me and haven`t much of a clue as to how to put things right !
Thank you for thinking of us Terry and for the award much appreciated xx

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving that great saddle fitting link. It confirmed exactly what I thought was the problem with my saddle - impeding my horses shoulders.

I feel sad (in my wallet) that I have to find a new saddle, but happy in my heart that I know why I must. :)

Congrats on the award, you certainly deserve it. I'm glad you are up and running again. Whatever works, it is so frustrating when you can't access your internet.

Good for you, Terry!
Blogging can be a chore when ;things' don't go the way they should.
Yeah for Firefox!
