Firefox said windows vista needs to be upgraded to windows 10 by September. Best Buy tells me 95% will not successfully upgrade and a new computer is the only option. Why would Firefox tell me to upgrade if it is not possible? what do I do?

Hi   !

'Best Buy'   sells computers and will of course try to sell you one, even if you don't need one right now..
Only you can decide whether you need a new computer - it depends on how old your device is and in what state .......

However : https://www.theguardian.com/technology/askjack/2016/aug/04/can-i-still-upgrade-from-vista-to-windows-10-or-should-i-buy-a-new-pc

You can still use Windows Vista on the ESR version of Firefox till mid 2018.
