I am on Windows 2000 SP4. I really like Firefox and have used it for years, however every year less and less sites support Firefox 12, and I was wondering, is there any way AT ALL to use a newer version of Firefox on Windows 2000? I tried KernelEx, but I couldn't get it to work.

I only want to use win 2000. (No win xp no win7 never win10. Win10 ist beside win8 the terriblest user system I ever have seen. Sorry but I will never change my mind.) Therefore it only works firefox 12. Now I often get only the message "ssl_error_no_cyher_overlap" if I enter a page. It must!!!! be possible to get to this pages. Which addon or anything else is necessary???? What is the reason for this creasy function?

I have had PC Matic & SuperShield installed since last Sept. and every time I reboot after a scan I get an error message, that states "An error creating a log filed has failed as it cannot find the path specified". I have contacted pcmatic's tech group and uninstalled and re-installed it several times. I am running XP and they have asked me to get a "IE tab for Firefox", where can I get that?

I have 2 identical older laptops running windows 2000 . Last week I was unable to get past the check out page on Ebay. Nothing on the Page responds. The cursor is operational. Both computers have the same problem. One of which has not been used on line for ! year. We also have a mac book pro using their operating system. There was no problem completing the Ebay and Pay pal check out procedure on the mac. We did the same procedure on the mac using Firefox with no problem. This leads me to believe that the problem may be a new compatibility issue with Firefox and the older operating systems. Cookies or whatever. Please let me know what you think. Thanks Clark Permar

This is a pretty old machine but am keeping hold of it because it runs well with older devices whereas Windows 10 throws a wobbly.

Its got a P4 2.2GHz which supports SSE2 according to CPU-Z but it will not work. I can't find a better BIOS so it looks like I am out of luck here. any suggestions?

firefox is crashing all the time - any time I go into the options area it shuts down. I cannot send an email with an attachment it will shut down. Also the - square and + menu in the upper right corner is all black. I can click in the area and it works to minimize or expand but you can't see the characters. I tried changing the color schemes but that doesn't work.

This problem happened since the first of the year. I have a Radeon 7000 graphics card, and am running XP Service Pack 3. I also have a friend who is having this same problem except her browser is crashing opening files. I have even uninstalled a printer which I added during that period of time and the associated software, but it didn't solve the problem.

Hello to everybody :o)

several websites, i.e. YouTube, Facebook and Google, detect the actual version of Firefox despite the fact I set a different version number (more recent) by means of the "User Agent Switcher" plugin.

So my question is twofold:

1) how can I change the "fingerprint" of my Firefox effectively, in order to make *any* website recognize the version number which I set (and not the real one)?

2) how those websites do detect the ACTUAL identity of a given browser, despite the changes to the User Agent string that one may have made by means of a switcher?

Thank you in advance to all you folks!

Using an older W2K Pro setup, Firefox 12.0. These files accumulate forever, apparently when a new page is loaded with custom fonts. Cure seems to be going to Tools -> Options -> Content -> Advanced Uncheck "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above" That keeps the files from appearing, but obviously doesn't allow the custom fonts.
