  1. Sigh.......no one wants to help us Jasmine :smileysad:
  2. This mostly a bump. I have the same problem. I also did evrything I could think of.

If one of "boys" did it, then it's the best thing since peanut butter and jelly sammiches." This is what I really ment when I wrote "or are you just trying to buck the system?"
  4. I will ask the OP this question. Did you watch any of the Video Tutorials for Firestorm before you tried it or did you just install it and try flying blind? 90% of the complaints I have heard about Firestorm were issues covered in the Tutorials, resolved by simple customizations that are there in the GUI. To answer your question Perrie yes I did take in a few video tutorials after I had downloaded and installed firestorm. I than meticulously went through the preferences section and made every adjustment I thought would help me enjoy firestorm more and even after all that I still found the firestorm user interface to be hideous to look at. Despite this fact I decided to keep firestorm around for a while longer but when I logged into the main SL client firestorm began to interfere with its performance. This ultimately led me to uninstall firestorm from my computer and because of firestorms bugginess I had to uninstall and reinstall the Second Life client.
  5. Thanks to all who responded to my post!:smileyvery-happy: I had lost sight of the fact that there are many different ways to lead your SL life and for a lot of people the standard SL client just won't cut it. I am happy with the current viewer that Linden labs has put out. It has improved significantly over the past year but there is still a great deal of space for improvement. The fact that people are forced to use phoenix or firestorm just to keep their machines from crashing is wrong. Overall I have gained a greater understanding of what the third-party viewer means to people and it makes me happy that people have a wide array of choices when approaching their Second Life.
  6. I recently downloaded and installed the third-party viewer firestorm. After trying it out for a short time I was unimpressed (to put it mildly) and went back to using the regular Second Life client. Thanks to a feature inside firestorm I noticed a great many of you were using third-party viewers. I really don't understand the appeal of these viewers and why anyone would be compelled to use them when the current SL client seems to be functioning well (well within reason anyway). Which brings me to my question? What motivates you to use a third-party viewer? Is it the "features”, the user interface, or are you just trying to buck the system?
