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?

On the Privacy tab in Options the check box for Accept cookies from sites is unchecked. I pressed the Exceptions button and added many websites to accept cookies from and clicked Allow for Session on each one. Sometimes I go to a website where I have to sign in with a username and password and the site states that my browser is refusing to accept cookies even though I had added the site to the exception list. When I check the exception list, the status of the exception has changed from Allow for Session to Blocked. I have found several exceptions change on their own from allow to blocked and some even have changed again after I changed them back. What could be causing the exceptions to change and is there some way to make the settings persistent?

Firefox 25 won't install on Windows XP SP3 -- "... requires Microsoft Windows XP SP 2 or newer"

Firefox keeps on telling me, my v24.0 installation was up to date, which is obviously wrong.

Trying manually to install v25.0.1 results in an error message, saying "Sorry, Firefox can't be installed. This version of Firefox requires Microsoft Windows XP SP 2 or newer."

This would make sense -- only that I am running Windows XP SP3 and never had any problems in that respect so far ... !

I couldn't find any information relating to this on the web, neither in English nor in German. Any ideas?!

Thanks a lot in advance Jens

Where are the system requirements for FF7? The only ones I found were for FF5.

On my ancient work computer running Win2K, the 'Check for Updates' says it is up to date, even though I am running 6.02. Has Win2K support been dropped? I'm hesitant to run the stand-alone install.

When I drag a copy a website favorite from Firefox's Untitled Bookmarks to my desktop, the company icon is changed to the Mozilla icon. This results in all my desktop icons looking the same, though the individual labels are preserved.

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?

How can I see / change the smtp ports in use by FF 12.0 on my WIN2K antique?

My webmail account works, though slowly, when I'm using NetScape 7.1. When I try to use the same program and service with FireFox 12.0, I can receive email, but sending email gets me an error message that's something like "Could not establish an SMTP commection with the server." The service tells me that my outgoing smtp port should be 465 if I'm using SSL, and 25 if I'm not using SSL. Also, if I'm asked about "authentication," it should be "the same as incoming." Where do I find these settings in FF12.0?

I'm asking this question on another computer, not the one I'm having trouble with. My problem child is an IBM Aptiva running Windows 2000 Version 5.0 (Build 2195; Service Pack 4) Copyright 1981-1999 Microsoft Corp. Physical memory available to Windows: 64,824 KB

Have used Spyware Blaster for some 5-6 years to control malware manipulating MSIE, Firefox, and block selected sites w 100% success, now suddenly when I check the status I see the Firefox controls being disabled/reactivated to allow prohibited javascripts to run, popups to run, etc over time, going from 100% blocked down to 50% blocked over time.

This happened

A few times a week

== Firefox was upgraded to 3.63 and 3.64 versions

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 installed Firefox ver. 4.0.1 but everything looks the same as before the install. The only noticeable difference is that the Home Button did move from the middle to the right side. When I check About Firefox, it does list the version as 4.0.1. When I click on Check for Updates, it says, “Firefox is up to date” When I click on Download Firefox, it says I am already running 4.0.1

According to the TAKE THE TOUR site, the most obvious missing features are: 1) Firefox Button which should be in the upper left-hand corner 2) Bookmark Button which should be to the right, next to the Home Button.

Also, there is no “one click” button for Private Browsing, the Awesome Bar does not seem to have the extra features as described, and new sites do NOT open as Tabs,

According to Firefox 4.0.1 is compatible with Windows 2000 so it should not be a problem with the operating system. One other tip, I did try to upgrade one of the Add-ons (AniWeather) which has been updated to be more compatible with 4.0.1. It would not install because of missing dll’s. This seems to be one more clue that 4.0.1 did not fully install.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Firefox 3.6.17, Win2K. Don't laugh at the OS, it just works.

But I get the Plugin Check page every time I start Firefox. It doesn't help, because I have the most recent versions of all my plugins that support Win2K. I just *cannot* update my plugins.

How do I kill off this screen?

Well, you know, short of removing Firefox forever.
