5/15/2011 12:06:13 PM I'm having issues with some websites, ie;Georgia Power, GasSouth, etc. I find I have to use 3 different browsers for different sites. I've been told that some newer technology within the browser's updates is the reason. So, I use IE9, Chrome 10, and Firefox 4. I think it's Firefox or IE9 that has me re-installing Adobe Flashplayer10, about 6 times so far. I'm wondering if it's my Acer Laptop (Notebook) that might be the problem. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
