Why don't you stick with Firefox? It's a better browser. Maybe IE is not your default browser.

i think IE was my default, but when i'm on firefox, some of the sites freezes up on me. it never happened on IE though. is there anyway to make IE the default again?

In IE, go to Internet Options > Programs tab > and click the box where it says "Internet Explorer should check to see whether it is the default browser". Then press OK. Restart IE, and when it ask to make it the default browser, click yes.

i just did that, but it didnt ask if it wanted to make it the default browser. i restarted the pc, and it still opens websites in firefox. is this normal?

Maybe uninstall Firefox, if you're not using it. That will revert the default browser status, back to IE.
