    Of course. IE6 is SO much better than FF3. :lol:


    On a more serious note, it doesn't take a genius to figure out that IE has a bigger version number because it's older. IE came out in 1995, FF came out in 2003. Google Chrome came out in 2008, but the only reason it's at version 14 now is because it's been inflating its version number from the start.


    It's actually kind of ironic: of the 3 most used web browsers, IE is the only one that has a versioning scheme that isn't a joke.

    The "security library: memory allocation failure" error doesn't actually seem to be a memory problem as such. Maybe it's the old openssl library on the Pandora or something like that, as disabling TLS (and forcing Firefox to fall back to SSLv3) fixes this error with the Google login page.


    So: Open "about:config" in Firefox, search for "security.enable_tls" and set it to "false".


    [edit] While it's the default, better also check that "security.enable_sslv3" is set to "true", otherwise Firefox won't have https at all.

    Hit some kind of assembly code issue. I'll be spending more time on it soon since it's something we could all do with!

    To be fair Firefox has upped their version numbers at a ridiculous rate.
