Get Rid of need to update message

Posted

All of a sudden, when I reboot my computer I get a message once I access Firefox saying my version of Firefox is out of date, but I can't download the current version because Firefox no longer supports Windows XP, which is the OS I use. Since I can't afford to upgrade my entire OS, how can I stop this message from appearing every time I reboot?

Interestingly, when I rebooted this morning, the message didn't come up. But thank you anyway.

Question owner

I know how to Uninstall, but once I do, I can't access the Internet because that's my only browser. So how would I Reinstall?

Download 1st as it is a Full Version Installer. Should have left IE in.

Or install over top.
