There's something called a "Browser only." option when you install, it's very handy.

I get the same problems at my school sometimes and I think its just because, as Laser said, the connection is being shared around so much. Some times the internet is super fast, and others unbearably slow.

I get that, but when it's at it's fastest it's still slower than a 512Kbps.

That's why I got firefox in the first place. It's relatively small and feels fast. Even if it isn't faster than other browsers, at least I have the subjective impression that it's faster.

Bah, damn my school's safety features >:( It won't let me any .exe files that are not already installed and embedded into the HDD, thus, no portable firefox for me.

You could always try to boot into your own operating system, e.g. http://www.knoppix.org/ or http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/

Heh, I think that's taking it a little bit too far.

Slight problem. There are no CD drives, and the PCs are always on. As soon as one goes off, the 'all-seeing eye' software will detect it. I don't think they excuse of an unstable windows system will get me anywhere, due to my ICT teacher (also, head of the subject) being nigh incompetent. I believe she got the position as head of department because she can use MSOffice.

My ICT teacher (also head of department) doesn't know what he's talking about also. Well, what I mean is, he can work a computer really good but he can't teach for shit... and he NEVER explains ANYTHING, so if you don't understand something you'd be better off asking a classmate or one of you fellows on here  :)
