install 10.6.8 to latest Firefox
my mac system running 10.6.8 doesn't meet the requirements to run the latest version of Firefox. I have two vulnerable plug-ins QuickTime 7.6.6 and Java 60.65. Is there any thing that Mozilla is doing to help keep people operating Mac OS 10.6.8 and earlier from vulnerabilities?
Additional System Details
- Displays Java applet content, or a placeholder if Java is not installed.
- The QuickTime Plugin allows you to view a wide variety of multimedia content in web pages. For more information, visit the QuickTime Web site.
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; rv:45.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/45.0

So you are now running the Extended Support Release (ESR) version?
Regarding QuickTime and Java, I unfortunately think you are dependent on Apple for updates. But do you really need them?
Most formats played by QuickTime can be played by VLC instead. See: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-macosx.html
I'm not aware of a substitute for Java, but not so many sites use the Java plugin any more. Mostly older games, I guess.
thank you for the response. Unfortunately we are all a bit locked into whatever OS we have or are restrained by. I'll take youre advise and see if I can fix one of the vulnerabilities. Java, as far as I am concerned needs to be obsolete. It has had so many breaches and bugs.
