how to load and use version50? Wells Fargo does not support lastest version of Firefox!
Wells Fargo bank has decided NOT to support the 3 newest versions of Firefox, Microsoft 11, Safari- NOT SUPPORTED, and Google Chrome 55 or higher. This has caused me major problems. If I can find out "if" I can load Firefox 50 I can get back on Wells Fargo on line banking. Yhis problem started after July 7 when the updated their user agreement. This just proves that Wells Fargo DOES NOT CARE!!!

It's quite difficult for them to find out, what version are you using. They're probably checking only the user agent, so it's enough to install this addon and set whatever browser for their site.
wells fargo online banking do NOT support Firefox versions above version 50.
They are really slow to adapt to browser changes.

Do you only see a warning message or is the website blocking you?
It is quite possible that they haven't tested their website with recent Firefox versions and show a warning, but do not block Firefox.

It doesn't make sense to downgrade Firefox just for one site.
How often do you need to use Wells Fargo's site? To avoid security risk in your general browsing, you could use a "portable" version of Firefox 50.1.0 for those times.

There are several language selections, so make sure to download the one with your preferred language in the file name.
After downloading, run the EXE installer and it will drop a clean version of Firefox into a folder -- I suggest just keeping it in the Downloads folder for convenient access. It doesn't interfere with your main installation of Firefox, but you may not be able to run them at the same time.
For your regular installation of Firefox, if you don't already, you could consider changing your startup setting from "Show your home page" to "Show your windows and tabs from last time" so that you can resume your work more quickly. (Assuming you use regular windows rather than private windows, and don't flush all your history at every shutdown.)
