Aha! It's Firefox.

I've whined a couple of times about comments not being visible on my blog. It's not Blogger, it's my browser. I've been using Firefox and until recently, really liked it.
However, it's been erratic and slow recently. I googled and found that indeed, some people have noticed blog comments not showing up when using Firefox, and other issues. I've started using IE again with no problems.
I also found this, which I'm not sure I fully understand but I think it might be the case with my computer. I'll look into it fully later when I have time but I have to go Do Stuff now.

I believe you need to decapitate the zombie to stop it from sending out spam, but I might be mistaken. You could probably also get it drunk and wait for it to pass out, then change the Admin password on your computer.

I hadn't noticed any Blogger comments problems, I guess because I use IE. With so many different browsers available, it's tough to find one which works well in every situation.

jackiesue, I dunno. I sort of like Leigh-Ann's idea though. Or maybe a silver bullet? No wait, that's vampires, not zombies.

Karen, too cool!Didn't you have a marvy time? I love Hawaii. And I have to say, until recently I have vastly preferred Firefox for many reasons. If I can get this sorted out, I'll keep using it.

Leigh-Ann, ya you got to sneak up on those zombies, for sure.

That photo is amazing whether you got that effect by accident or not. Wow. Cool shirt too. I have been using Netscape for years, because it combines both Firefox and IE, giving me the unprecedented opportunity to enjoy the long lasting aggravation of the problems created by BOTH. Drives me nuts and I wouldn't recommend it.

O.K., you jinxed my husband and Firefox just hung up on the PC. He downloaded the new version and we're back in business. You probably should, too. Under options, you can set it up to check for new releases and update automatically. I lo-o-o-o-o-o-ve Firefox!

I, too, downloaded Firefox cuz everyone recommended it. I've found it's not as great as everyone said. So I muddle along with both FF & IE. Hubby has Netscape and generally likes it but it has it's challenges, as well.

I loved Firefox since January, until just recently.
Margot, I think I have the new version, I'll check. (How DO I check?)
It's set for updates too.
