I finally did the right thing and downloaded Firefox to both computers, one with XP Home and one with Windows 98. On the older machine, everytime I first open Firefox, the firewall stops things and asks if I want to allow Firefox to act as a server--does this mean it works as a proxy? Any particular reason I would/wouldn't want to allow it?

Also, on both machines, when I log onto the forums here, the first one I go to (doesn't matter which it is, although it's nearly always NCD--oops--"The Lounge") will say it's been X number of hours since I last visited, but doesn't highlight the threads that have been active; if I leave that forum and come back, it highlights only the threads that had activity since I logged on. Any forums I go to after that first one will behave normally. Is there some weird setting at work here?
