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.

Hi,

I need to state first that I am using w2000 SP5. This is a clean install, with no male ware. I understand that the OS is not supported. But, my other computer has a defective motherboard and unable to replace it now.

I am using the last version of Firefox that was available for w2000, ( ver 11.0 )

I have modified Firefox NOT to UPDATE plugins. (Because new plugins don't; work in W2000.Firefox 11.0)

I have installed the last version of Flash that works in W2000 also. ( fp_10.1.102.64_and_9.0.289.0_archive )

All works as normal. No crashes. No issues.

Except, that the install magically disappears as a plugin from Firefox.

It disappears 3 or 4 times a day. Usually after I open Firefox a few hours later.

But, it is still in installed Programs list on computer.

I have been re-installing it every time, which is VERY annoying.

I have disabled Flash from automatic updates also.

There must be something that is checking to install a new version, and deleting my current install.

But, I can't find it.

I have tried many versions of flash, and all do the same thing.

So, I believe the problem is in Firefox.

I am posting my problem at Adobe also.

Please help me. TIA

Details: win2k Pro on a laptop. Stable for YEARS. Firefox 11 installed. Everything WORKS and works WELL.

Now, I get an annoying upgrade message about win2kpro NOT being supported and urging me to upgrade. So far, so good. I would expect this thing happening, but HOW do I turn it OFF when I can NOT change my computer configuration?

I do not have the financial resources to upgrade the OS. I will stick with the stable win2kpro that I have, thank you, AND I will stick with Firefox 11 since it seems to also be as stable as my 10 year old win2kpro on my laptop.

BUT! I have this message that pops up EVERY TIME I start Firefox, telling me what I have is NO LONGER supported, urging me to upgrade my OS and Firefox! OK! So I GET IT! But I can't upgrade because I simply do not have the MONEY!

I turned off the automatic updates option. I deleted the XML files as suggested by another as a fix. NOTHING HAS WORKED. I STILL get this damn message!

HOW DO I STOP THIS DAMN ANNOYING REMINDER TO UPGRADE THAT I CAN NOT AFFORD TO DO?

There's an annoying pop-up that loads every time I start Firefox. It tells me to upgrade my operating system, as the latest version of Firefox doesn't support it. But it's the most advanced version of the OS my system will cope with, so that's not an option.

How do I turn the pop-up off?

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?

If I have Firefox open, and I then open my email client MS Outlook 2000, if there is an email with a html link in it, if I click on this link it does nothing, but if I close Firefox and then click on that email link Firefox then opens.

I would ultimately find that if I were to try and open another email link it would do nothing until I closed Firefox again.

Old machine (desktop) runs Win2K and FF 3.6. New machine (laptop) runs Win7 but has no browser (except IE). Want to put current FF (10?) on laptop and transfer profile from desktop. Can't put current FF on desktop because current Flash won't run on Win2K. Profile, I presume, includes bookmarks, passwords, form help (auto-completion of (e.g.) email add.) and all add-ons. I can find (thanks to article here) the profiles on both machines. Can I just copy and overwrite the presumably blank one created when I install current FF on the laptop? If not how do I do it?

Firefox will not print at all to my HP PSC 750 printer and loses all formatting when trying to print to Brother HL-5240 printer

I have no problem with either of my printers when printing from either Avant 11.7 or IE 6.0.2800.1106 but can not print from Firefox 3.6.13 (or earlier). When trying to print to the HP PSC 750 inkjet printer, a "Printing" dialog box appears, showing Title: xyz and a progress meter showing 100% but this is being overlaid almost immediately by a second dialog box stating "An unknown error occurred while printing" and, while the printer continues saying "printing", no printing will take place.

When trying to print to the Brother HL-5240 laser printer, printing will occur but all formatting is lost and what comes out is a block of unintelligible running text.

What can/must I do to get Firefox to print correctly to my two printers?

Windows 2000 SP4, 1g RAM, Firefox 9.0.1 We keep IE6 and Firefox open simultaneously for 2 different mail accounts. Firefox was always much faster even with 3 or 4 tabs open, but for the past couple of weeks when trying to update a screen the CPU suddenly goes to 100% usage and of course nothing will move until the particular process is finished. Closing one or more tabs does not help. If I close Firefox completely with Task Manager CPU usage goes back down to nil. After restarting Firefox CPU usage may or may not go back up depending upon whether it tries to continue the previous task that was locking it up. It did not do this with Firefox 3.6 but then again it didn't happen immediately after updating to 9.0.1 either.

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.
