Thank you for your replies...and I realized after the fact that I had posed two different problems. I will give Google a try. I'm old, and need all the help I can get. :)

If you already have Firefox installed making it default browser loses nothing. In fact you will hardly notice the change. The main difference is that when you click on links (in email, or links saved elsewhere) then Firefox will open instead of IE if they are suitable. You can always change your default preference later.

If you haven't already got Firefox then when installing it you get offered the chance for it to collect all your favorites and favorites bar links from IE. I'm assuming that's what you mean by taskbar (but that is something else at the bottom of the screen). Once again whatever is already set in IE does not get affected in any way.

In summary Firefox is an "add-on" program. Installing it has no effect on IE or the computer.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
