I have received an email requesting that I update my browser before the 31 march 2024 in order to still have access to my Mozilla account.

I wish i could update firefox but my computer and operating system are at least 10 years old. And updating my operating system (to be able to use a newer version of firefox) will create havoc on my computer.

I really like using firefox, I've used it for many years. And it's indeed very practical to be able to sync between my phone firefox browser and on my laptop.

I just wanted to share my disappointment that people like me will no longer be able to use their account and browser properly. Some of us cannot or do not want to update everything all the time and wish to be able to use basic functions of apps/programs they like.

Thank you for this very good product. I'm just sorry I won't be able to use it properly anymore.

If you know of any solution to this problem, I would be very glad to try it.

Thank you

The email was to say Sync was not going to be supported anymore in the old Firefox 78.0 and earlier versions as you need 79.0 or later to use Sync. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/sync

Firefox 78.15.0esr is the latest to still support the old EOL macOS 10.9, 10.10, 10.11 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-mac-osx-users-esr

Firefox 79.0 to 115 ESR requires macOS 10.12, 10.13, 10.14 at minimum to run. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-users-macos-1012-1013-1014-moving-to-extended-support

Firefox 116.0 and later requires macOS 10.15 or later to run.

If you can update to at least macOS 10.12 (ten.twelve) then you can use the still currently supported Fx 115 ESR (115.8.0esr) as the last update 115..15.0esr will be in Sept 2024. https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/all/#product-desktop-esr (<-- requires macOS 10.12 or later as it will not run on your 10.11)

Firefox 78.15.0esr can be used just the same after March as you can now minus the ability to use the Sync feature. It is also the most current web browser you can use on your old EOL macOS 10.11 so your options is limited if you cannot update your macOS to at least 10.12.
