[snip the printing problem]

I'm not sure about the printing problem, though I know that there are times 
when I send photos or high-resolution graphics to my printer it can take 
some time, but regular text, or most web pages, e-mail or whatever, 
typically prints just fine.

However, I've been running into problems with Firefox myself lately, where 
it seems to be bogging my system down.  I don't know why.  But, it tends to 
happen when I have lots of tabs open, or when I'm using my web developer 
extensions for it.  Even after stripping it of its extensions, it tries to 
use nearly 100% of my CPU, and I quickly grew sick of that.  I'm now using 
Konqueror and it's working just fine, not hogging my processor time, and 
being quite happy.

I don't know what the problem with Firefox is, or why it's being such a 
pain, but frankly, I don't care, either.  I just want something that will 
get the job done so that I can be useful in my classes and such.  Firefox 
used to be it, but I'm afraid it isn't any longer.  :(
