I want to use the QuickTime plugin for Firefox, but version 7.1 is blocked, and version 7.2 doesn't support Windows 2000.

I'm fine with running 7.1; the risk is very small, and I'm willing to accept it. Or does someone have another solution?

I have a PC with 2 GBs of RAM, running W2K, primarily. I had avoided upgrading from the Firefox 3.x.x series ( or 5 ? ) because it was my understanding that it was the last one suitable for Windows2000. Not long ago, I got an automatic robot request from Firefox to update, and tried to make sure it was still within the compatibility range for W2k.

I thought that I was getting a minor update to a W2K version, but instead, have Firefox 12, which has totally disrupted my internet activity because it constantly bogs down into barely running, or else freezes up for long periods, and frequently crashes.

I want to roll back to whatever I'd used before this disaster. And if there's any special ways to do that, I want to know how it works. Thanks.

The latest versions to work on w2000 are 28.0 and 24.8.1esr. Wich to use, and why?

Forced to use the windows 2000 OS. By release date 24.8.1esr is identical to 31.1.0esr (not working on w2000) and close to 32.0 (newer than 28.0) So, between 28.0 and 24.… (read more)

Forced to use the windows 2000 OS. By release date 24.8.1esr is identical to 31.1.0esr (not working on w2000) and close to 32.0 (newer than 28.0) So, between 28.0 and 24.8.1esr, wich is: - faster - safer - less resources - better rendering - accept more new addons/extensions/plugins - has better chances to become obsolete (die) the latest

I an stucked on windows 2000 for an undefinite period in the future and I wish to be able to use the best browser Firefox has to offer.

I use the PORTABLE VERSIONS, at some point, I could share the same profile between 28.0 and 24.8.1esr. I guess they can share alternatively the same files in the profile folder ?

Is there a way I can delete a security exception that I added? I tried to order from a website whose security certificate had expired, and I decided to add the exception on my laptop, and then wasn't able to order from the site anyway. I've not had any problems with my laptop, but I would feel better if I knew the exception had been deleted. I wasn't sure which menu I needed to use to delete it, if it's even possible. I have no idea why I thought adding the exception was a good idea in the first place, because now I'm just paranoid. Thanks!!

EDIT: The operating system on my laptop is Windows 7, if that helps. Thanks again!

I am running FF 3.6.25 on Windows 2000. My Windows locale and date format are correctly set to UK.

When I go to a site that has a date column, the date is formatted wrongly in American style (e.g. 12/30/2011). If I use Internet Explorer to reach the same sites the date is correctly formatted in British style (e.g. 30/12/2011). How can I set the display style within Firefox?

With thanks for any advice you can offer.

I always use firefox to browse the internet. When I attempt to save a picture from ebay I have always enlarged the picture, right click, the clicked "save picture as". Now when I right click I don't get that option. All it will let me do is save the entire ebay item file. When I right click on the enlarged picture, the small picture, or the white near the enlarged photo my icon choices are: 1.Copy 2. Select All 3.Yahoo 4. Search Yahoo for "Please wait imag" 5. View selection source. Is this a firefox problem or a yahoo issue? Please help. Thanks John

As it says, I've been having a rough time with Firefox lately, and I think it's become corrupted. I've tweaked various settings according to suggestions on this forum and others like it, but they have only exacerbated the problem. I updated to the newest version of the browser which did not help, and I finally tried the "Reset Firefox" button, which was worst of all. I lost my personalized settings and add-ons for nothing, as the problem persists.

Most frustrating is that it completely crashes whenever I click on Tools>Options, so I'm unable to make any changes to this new configuration. If I could safely export my Bookmarks, I would try to uninstall the browser and re-install an older version of it, but of course it now freezes when I try to export the bookmark file.

So, aside from trashing the whole thing and starting over...any suggestions?

For the record, it is Firefox 28.0 (not sure what version it was when the trouble began), and the "About Firefox" window says that it is up-to-date. I am running Windows XP.

Thanks for any assistance or enlightenment you might be able to provide.

Tonight, when I loaded my browser, all my web pages came up without any background color- primarily just text on the same default system color background for all pages- this is fine for some simple pages, cause they load faster, but other pages like Facebook for example, I lose some of the graphical page elements, and that's not good! I'm not sure how this happened- all my pages going kinda `text only' (not totally- some foreground pictures load), and I'm not sure how to change it back- please help! I'm using 3.5.15 on a P4 tower.

Why does Firefox 3.6.12 truncate attachment file names containing blank spaces (Windows)?

Whenever someone sends me an attachment and I save it, Firefox truncates the file name if the file name contains blank spaces. I am running 3.6.12 under Windows 2000 SP4 right now. But this behavior has persisted for a long time, with earlier versions of Firefox and under Windows XP. Unfortunately, I cannot control the names of attachments people send me. As an example, if someone sends me a file named "file name.doc" (without quotes, of course), Firefox either displays it (via Micro$oft Word) or saves it as "file.doc". If I receive "filename.doc", that's how it gets saved.
