Olga, your question keeps getting buried in the general relaunch bugs thread, so this one is just for you.
You said that Chrome and Firefox keep "timing out" for you, yeah? Since you're on dial up, are you sure those browsers are properly installed?
Also, Bill believes based upon the error you've described that the AOL/IE shell browser you've been using is based upon IE6 or earlier. Is there any chance you can upgrade to a newer version of IE and see if that solves your problem?
Get out of the vacuum and express yourself!
