How can I get a download helper that workls for Firefox 48.0.2?

Posted

I have on old MacMini that cannot support updates for Firefox, but I made the mistake of downloading 48.0.2 when it was offered today. Now my Video Download Helper is gone and so is my AdBlock and I cannot find versions that are compatible with this browser. How do I find the old versions of these add-ons and get back to where I was?

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-osx - Firefox support has ended for Mac OS X 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8

Firefox 45.9.0esr will be the most up to date version with security fixes that will run on OS X 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8 as Firefox 53.0 and later requires OSX 10.9+
